Review of Bloody Roar 3

For those of you eagerly awaiting the sequel to Bloody Roar 2, here comes Bloody Roar 3 for the PS2. So is it the real deal? Well, with more characters than before already available for play and few extra to be unlocked, things look promising. The real questions is… how does it stack up against the benchmark games in this genre like Tekken Tag or DOA 2 ? Time to find out…

As far as general playability goes, the learning curve is relatively flat. Each character has so many special moves that you will need to bury your head in the user manual for a while to get to know them all. On the flip-side, once morphing into a beast life-form it becomes a button bashing exercise using the special move button for a quick K.O.

There are four major modes: Arcade, Vs Battle, Survival and Practice. The practice mode will allow you to really master any chosen character and get familiar with the controls, but in reality we know the first stop for all gamers will be the Arcade mode, for a quick taste of the action. Once inside, its the familiar routine of taking on the computer fighters one-by-one in 3 bout matches. Getting knocked out takes you to a continue screen for another try. Vs battle is simple, mano a mano fighting for two players, while Survival mode is similar to Arcade but its one K.O. and move to the next character… lose and its game over.

As you move through the Arcade or Survival modes, the competition improves significantly round-by-round, making the task of unlocking new characters quite tough. Experts who usually speed though these types of games can at least increase the CPU strength for more of a challenge.

The graphics are really quite good in BR3. The characters are rendered very well, and appear to have a relatively high polygon count. Animation is also well done and the game itself moves along at a blistering pace. I really liked the slick transformation effect from human to beast and the special moves throw out a lot of effects that almost equate to a light show. The backgrounds are also implemented nicely, but are a little grainy in certain areas. I found some pop-up when the camera pans during a K.O. and your opponent is against the wall but nothing show stopping. Worth a special mention is the arena where both fighters are ankle-deep in water, which moves and splashes realistically. Theres also a cold-weather level where the breath flows out and wisps away nicely.

The sound effects and background music are all excellent surround stereo and realistic sounds. Most games today have mastered the good use of sounds and this doesnt disappoint. There is no big name sound track, just standard arcade background tunes.

OUR PLEDGE: We promise that we have fully played 'Bloody Roar 3' before writing this review. The scores given above are our honest opinion and were not influenced in any way by the manufacturer or distributor of the game.
