Bloody Roar 3
This game is great
2014 and I still crave a game like this. I love fighting games where you don't have to memorize combos of keys, but instead master skills of timing and knowing when to the various punches, kicks, etc. One of the best fighting games out there imo, along the the dbz budokai tenkaichi series. Wish they would bring this back!!
One of the worst fighting games out in 2001. Stiff gameplay, no skill required. Play Tekken or Soul Calibur instead.
Bloody roar 3 is epic it gives a fighting experience unlike any other game.What other game lets you turn into a beast and stab the enemy with the spikes on your back(if any).I personally think that the special move (L1 while in beast mode) should be saved to finish the enemy.Also be aware that turning into a beast while close to the enemy will damage them knocking them pretty far back.I played bloody roar 2 on my ps1 and it became pretty addicted. I heard about bloody roar 3 when i went to the plaza in the town I lived in Mexico.They had a stand 3 ps1's and 3 ps2's My cousin said "lets play that game"(bloody roar 3)He told me you could transform into an animal and thats when i remembered "I used to play this with my brother"so ever since then I wanted to buy it. so bloody roar 3 gets a 10/10 from
The best fighting game you've never played.
A truly exceptional and incredibly underrated game. While my first experience with the Bloody Roar series came out of a pizza-hut demo years ago, I jumped at the first chance to get this game when it came out. The amount of originality and concept that went into this game was like nothing I had ever seen before. Not only were the designers clever enough to create an impressive list of characters with their own individual fighting styles (except for a few clones), they also fitted them with feral (and reptilian) personalities to match. Transforming into the respective beast modes always unlocked another level of combo integration and overall 'bad-assity' to each character, making them faster and more flashy by the button press.
Hands down though, putting the visual concepts aside, the one quality that truly sets this game apart is its dodge mechanic. Giving the player the ability to read, evade, and counterattack their opponents truly creates the intensity of this game. The ability to dodge not only pushes the players ability to respond and react to any attack, it also completely balances all characters on the basic skill of the player, not the character chosen. I love this game and i wish it had become more popular, but I will always have the memories of amazing matches that my friend and I had when we were younger (as well as the calluses that formed on our thumb tips lol). Definitely a game that's easy to pick up, and incredibly rewarding to master.
