Playstation Illustrated
25 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Across the world exists a demographic of gamers who have an insatiable appetite for the quirky. If you know for a fact that you don't belong to that group, hold the ALT button and press F4: Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble was not developed with you in mind. If you're open-minded and have no qualms about injecting yourself with a potent dose of liquid stupidity, you may find yourself in wide-eyed captivation at the experience this game offers.

  • Summary: Even with some questionable controls and outdated graphics, Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble feels like the River City Ransom sequel I've been waiting for. There's plenty of exciting action, tons of boss fights and a whole city to explore. If you can get over the game's shortcomings, you'll discover that Kenka Bancho is worth fighting for! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Summary: Are you badass enough to be the king of the banchos?
  • Pros: Can replay game over and over again; lots of things to collect; feel badass just by playing.
  • Cons: Combat is clunky and repetitive; city of Kyouto is mostly empty; collecting things doesn't really add anything to the game.

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble review (PSP)

HonestGamers
4 December 2009
  • Excerpt: The payoff is a hilarious look at the world of delinquents, at least as it's portrayed in several anime series. If that aspect of youthful Japanese culture sounds interesting, then you'd be crazy not to pick this game up and at least give it a whirl for a few minutes. It's weird, wacky, and completely insane. Come on -- do I need to Smash Talk you into a purchase?

27 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble had an interesting start to its localization. Originally released in Japan as Kenka Bancho 3 , Atlus U.S.A. felt the title on its own wouldn’t make any sense to North American audiences, for whatever reason. In an unprecedented move, the publisher allowed fans to vote for its new name, and the result was Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble .

  • Conclusion: It's something of a miracle that Kenka Bancho is even coming out on this side of the planet. It's not unwieldy or inaccessible, it's just that particular flavor of crazy that you'd catch at the Tokyo Game Show and never, ever expect to see cross the ocean. It was supposed to be an import legend, but, like all cult hits, the fiction is often more intriguing than the myth. Kenka Bancho is a weird, good game for a few hours, but as it stretches on it’s undone by its flaws.

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble - PSP - Review

GameZone
26 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Atlus has long been a publisher that has championed hardcore and "niche" games, taking Japanese titles with bizarre gameplay elements and themes and bringing them stateside. Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble for PSP is one such title in a long line of strange games. A open brawler-RPG hybrid, Kenka Bancho certainly gets points for being an original and strange title, harkening back to titles like River City Ransom and-well-okay, I guess there's really nothing else like it.
