Zatch Bell! Mamodo Fury Review

GameSpot
7 December 2006
  • Excerpt: To the uninitiated, the intense, off-the-wall style of Zatch Bell! might seem uniquely bizarre, but its premise is really quite simple. There's a cast of hyper, interesting characters backed by a plot that basically just gives the characters a reason to fight one another. It's a design that works in publisher Namco Bandai's favor because it can just as easily be a video game as it can be anime, manga, or a collectible card game, which makes for seemingly endless...
  • Pros: Large cast of playable characters offers plenty of variety, lengthy story mode with more than 30 stages
  • Cons: The fighting system is shallow and each character only has a handful of moves, frustrating camera and targeting problems, annoying, repetitive, and distorted sound effects, poor collision detection, stupid artificial intelligence regularly gets stuck behind objects

  • Conclusion: The gameplay suffers from a handicapped camera system, shoddy fighting mechanics and a downright less-than-mediocre presentation. The only gamer that will enjoy this title is the one that sleeps in their Zatch Bell! tighty whities. Unless that's you just chalk this one up as a skipper.

  • Conclusion: With its sizable cast of characters and lengthy story mode, Zatch Bell! Mamodo Fury offers a lot of very familiar content in one package. However, the gameplay is far too shallow and frustrating to be satisfying. If you're unfamiliar with Zatch Bell! this isn't a good place to start, because it provides no context for the license and does nothing to appeal to those who aren't already intimately familiar with the series.
  • Pros: Large cast of playable characters offers plenty of variety, lengthy story mode with more than 30 stages.
  • Cons: The fighting system is shallow and each character only has a handful of moves, frustrating camera and targeting problems, annoying, repetitive, and distorted sound effects, poor collision detection, stupid artificial intelligence regularly gets stuck behind objects.
