Final Breakdown


The gameplay itself isn't bad, but it lacks most of the depth needed for a top of the line fighting game.


One thing the programmers did right was manage to integrate the look of Rumiko Takahashi's characters and scenery into a 3-D fighting game. The cel shading and backgrounds look good, and close to the cartoon series, all at once.

Sound and Music:

With very few unique arenas, don't expect tons of unique music, but the voice actors do a decent job filling the game out. Beware of the curse of repetitive dialogue.


As simplified as the system is, there are quite a few holes in it, and the game's difficulty doesn't hold up until the programmers deliberately give enemies ridiculous abilities not available to the player.

Controls and Interface:

The idea of controlling only the AI mode of your secondary character is a nice touch, but I found myself wishing for better commands; too often, the AI placed the helper into harm's way, or even walked straight into trap areas.


If you're a die-hard fan of the series, you'll likely love it, but casual players should rent it first. Casual players are also likely to finish it upon a three-day rental.
