Summary: I am a fighter junky. I have played them all from street fighter to Tekken 5. I have been looking forever for this game when I heard they were going to take it off the market. I figured it will be a collector one day and well hey, its a fighter. Let me start off with the good stuff. The Graphics are NICE. Smooth textures, animations, reflections, reactions really all top notch. The fighting is quick and not as jerky as some other people have said.
Summary: I have to be honest, I'm no expert on fighting games..but this game fails in basically every aspect. Horrible controls, forgettable characters,bad story mode, and probably the worst sound effects ever in a next-gen game. The ONLY reason to pick this game up is because its rare because it was only sold for about a month in stores, and might be a collectible someday, but if your looking for a fighting game on the Xbox run far from this and get Dead or Alive.
Summary: First off, let me clear things up. I'm a fighter fan. I've played them all, and yes I consider myself an authority. When I'm not jamming out on Street Fighter, I'm playing some Neo Geo fighter that you've never heard of. Now let me say this: Kakuto is a fantastic, focused, and addictive 3D fighter. Alot of people like to say that this game is as deep as the kiddy pool, and that its all mash.. Thats total bull. If you want a masher, go play Tekken.
Conclusion: I luckily got Kakuro Chojin for free from a friend. But if you don't get it for free, don't buy the game. While the graphics are beautiful, the game is boring and short. The single player takes literally 10 minutes, and the multiplayer is basic "Beat player 2 to win!" style. The audio is awful. Instead of using real sound effects, whenever you hit someone you hear a sound that sounds like a paintball exploding on a metal floor.
Summary: I have the ultimate misfortune of having wasted money on this lousy game. If it were possible to give a rating of zero stars here I would. It is, in my opinion, the WORST fighting game EVER. The characters look like of bunch of clowns, literally -- bad knock off crosses between pro-wrestlers and circus clowns. The skinning looks like plastic. The gameplay is ridiculously easy, not to mention boring and repetitive.
Summary: My wife and I must be the only fans of this game. I first played it as a demo in XBOX Magazine and I liked it pretty well. I had just got my XBOX and I'm not an expert when it comes to fighting games. Now my wife on the other hand loves these kind of games. Whenever we pass by an arcade, she wants to play the fighting games. And she does well because she picks up the gameplay pretty quickly.
Summary: This game is a total disappointment. Gameplay is relatively simple, moves are limited, and the characters don't seem to move right. In addition, the character's skin has a shiny "Barbie Doll" surface look to it (just doesn't look right). This game gets boring fast. I don't recommend it unless you can pick it up really cheap.
Summary: If you have played fighting games before then this game is going to waste even your rental dollars. 1. Unimpressed with the visuals of the game myself. You can't see them for the most part, because there is too much distance and too many items packed into the visuals. 2. The fighting scheme was pretty simple, attack high, attack low, and repeat -- vary the pattern in an ad-hoc way to keep the AI off balance and victory!! 3.
Summary: Kakuto Chojin is a Microsoft game that tries to fill the many empty spots that X-Box has for fighting games. Is it successful in its attempt? Well, let me tell you the pros and cons of this game. Let's start with the pros. The brightest star in this game is its really simple control scheme. You can pick up the game and start winning fights right away even if you are not used to playing fighting games.
