Beyblade: Super Battle Tournament
Beyblade: Super Battle Tournament (GC)
+ Easy to Understand Controls
+ Classic Beyblade Parts
+ Classic Beyblade Characters
+ Easy Customization with 100s of combinations
- Game may be to simple relying on only the A button, B button, and analog controls
- Lack of any real story
- Lack of characters from the show
This game doesn't have much of a plot. You either play as a generic male or female beyblader and enter into a local and national final in order to beat the game. The story of this game can be beaten in about 30 minutes with time to spare.
The game is easy to pick up and learn. To increase the rate in which you build up energy for your specials you only need to hold the A button and make contact with your enemy and execute special attacks with the B button. The only other thing to concern yourself with is controlling the beyblade with the analog stick. There is also a camera control using the z button if I recall correctly, but you don't really have a reason to use it since the game gives you an overhead view of all of the action so shifting the camera isn't necessary.
The rules for the tournament are also rather simple. You and your opponent play until you earn four points. You earn 1 point if your opponent's blade stops spinning, 2 points if you knock your opponent's beyblade out of the stadium, and 4 points if your opponent's beyblade runs out of HP and breaks. Outside of each round of the tournament you can spend points to repair your beyblade or switch between beyblades for each opponent, but this requires you to have built multiple beyblades.
On the downside there are certain animations you can't skip through in the game. The biggest offender in this area is when you or your opponent summon your bit beast. The game forces you to watch the bit beast emerge from the beyblade every single time and I find this to be highly annoying since you'll summon your bit beast multiple times during a battle. Luckily you can skip through the attack animation.
Another slight problem is the lack of available characters in the game. While a few of the classic characters are there a lot of characters from the first season aren't represented and a lot of the characters from V Force are also missing.
Graphically speaking the game is okay I guess. There isn't that much to see in this game and even though there are multiple dishes the game only offers a grand total of three unique ones to play in. On the bright side it is nice to see that each of the parts is colored and represented in this game, but you can't see what your beyblade looks like unless your in the arena.
There aren't a lot of tracks to listen to in this game. I guess, one can forgive that to a degree since the game isn't all that long, but I'm less forgiving to the voice work. Each of the characters is voiced when executing their special attacks in the stadium, but the amount of phrases that they use is highly limited. And, you'll quickly grow tired of listening to the characters repeat themselves. This is especially holds true for your character and the DJ.
There are a lot of things to unlock in this game. You need to enter into the tournament multiple times in order to unlock the secret characters, beyblade parts in the shop, and access all of the images in the gallery. The game also offers up multiple forms of play such as a time attack mode against 10 random beybladers, a free battle mode where you can play as various characters, a battle royale involving four players, and a tag-team matches.
Lasting Appeal: 8
beyblade super battle tournament is a fun action game for kids who just wanna play original beyblade alone or with friends it is a short storyline so you can practice racking up bey points customizing and finally playing with your freinds overall not a bad game
You'll Only Like if it's Your First Beyblade Game
Pros: Battle Royal and different stadiums
Cons: Too simple and unattractive gameplay
I would only play this game for free
The only reason why I'm so critical of this game is because I have played "BeyBlade Let It Rip" for the PSone. Everything about it seems better than this game except you can play with up to 4 players and have the option of different stadiums. "BeyBlade Let It Rip" for the PSone is not even close to being a 10 out of 10 game and I was hoping Beyblade: Super Battle Tournament could do the job. In all honesty, you can only like Beyblade: Super Battle Tournament if your a hard card beyblade fan or it is your first time playing a beyblade game.
OMG this is awosme
well it is cool and all but still its cool!! I know the others think this game is bad so who cares its awosme!!
HAHAHA! Your kidding me right?
To be honest, I just HAVE to start off by laughing! Okay, enough laughing, time for some seriousness. I only ever had this game because I had *** dollars one day (with enough for tax) and decided to try it out. Trust me, it's really boring, and really easy. In case you have never played the REAL beyblade, beyblade is pretty much a game where you try to spin out your opponent's beyblade. Believe me it is WAY more fun to play the real game than this! The controls are ridiculously easy! All you have to do,if I'm not mistaken, is press A to attack and use the control stick to move. The graphics fall below the yellow line compared to any other Game Cube game. Considering that I didn't like the game, I brought it back the next day so I didn't get a chance to play the story mode that much. So, I don't know how long it is, so I can't tell you that. The storyline really sucks because all the game is, is a tournament so you know there won't be anything worh playing there for you. Do not get this game only because you like the ACTUAL beyblade game. Please, spare me the pity and get the real beyblade game.<br>
