Excerpt: It is an inescapable fact of life that pirates are cool. A pirate is, without making any effort, instantly amongst the top 2 coolest characters a work of fiction can be about. Some may argue that ninjas are superior, but it really is a close thing, and it all depends on the writing.
Excerpt: The only appealing part of Beyblade 's presentation is the anime-style character designs. I really enjoyed the still images of the characters and their special moves, but that's about it. Even though the tops look interesting in still images, they're little more than blurred, spinning images during the entire game. The menus are boring and the arena is just as bland. Even the special effects aren't much to marvel at. The audio portion of the game is just as bad.
Excerpt: Some people get rich by way of their talents, abilities, or great ideas. Professional athletes, inventors, and certain musicians are some examples of these people.

Because Beyblade is a blatant rip-off of Pokemon, Digimon, Yugi-Oh, and Robopon combined.

Cons: Grottenschlecht, Furchtbare Steuerung, Nur eine Arena
