Summary: This is a pretty cool game. The
battles are almost fun, the character designs, both while human, and in
beast form, are very good, and the attacks and combos are fun to watch.
But for the most part this game doesn't really bring anything new to the
table. It is definitely the best of the series, but if you haven't liked
the past Bloody Roar games, chances are you won't like this one either.
Pros: Stunning visuals, very fast-paced battles, impressive combos, and good sound.
Cons: It is the hardest fighting game I have ever tried to beat, and there is no four-player mode.
Excerpt: When you look back through the progression of games, you can truly appreciate how far your favorite genre has gone since you’ve started playing. 3D fighting games have evolved with this latest generation of consoles. With the advent of Virtua Fighter, Soul Calibur 2, and other series on the PS2, fighting game fans have something to look forward to when they browse the stores.
Excerpt: Console owners have always had a wide selection of beat em up games. This of course increases the requirements of a game and not only demands that the gameplay is superb, but that something new is brought into the genre, some little detail (anyone remember how Capcom exploited Street fighter?). Lets face it; it takes one hell of a game to knock the Tekken series from the throne. So can Bloody Roar 3 do it? Read on and find out.
Conclusion: Då och då är det marginalerna som avgör om ett spel går upp i toppen eller glider ner i glömskans stora djup. Bloody Roar 3 är dessvärre inte ett av de spel som vi om tre år kommer att mäta andra beat’em’up spel med. Tekken har länge haft den statusen och det verkar som om just Namcos fightinglir har varit en stor inspiration för Bloody Roar 3. Nu är det ju svårt att komma med mycket nytt till den här genren.
