Pray for Death is a fighting game developed by Virgin Interactive. We have played a lot of fighting games in past, some good, some bad. But in which part should we put this game in? After playing this game for a while I have came to the conclusion that it's a pretty good fighting game, however there are some things that could have used some more work. What's cool about this game that is has many game modes to offer. One on the most modes is the tag team mode, where two teams of two are pitted against eachother fighting to the last man of that team. The developers also incorporated a story mode for each character, which is a nice touch. One you start your first battle, you might see that everything is in 3D. Most of you would think bad about this part, maybe due to the fact that many 3D fighting games, like Xenophage
, didn't do so well in that time. Pray for Death, however, is the suprising exception, that has great controls and beautiful visual. That are some awesome visual effects, like the reflexion in a water pool, that haven't been seen before in any other game in that period. And now we come to the main problem of the game. It tries to be violent, however it fails to do so. Of course, there is blood in the game, but the doesn't make it that violent. The devs even programmed finishing moves for each fighter and all of them are lame and don't come close to the fatalities from Mortal Kombat
. Even Xenophage had better finishing moves and, remember, that was a terrible fighting game. The voice acting is also horrible at the point where you can't understand anything. But all in all, Pray for Death is a great fighting game. Had these problems been ironed out and polished, this could have become one of the best fighting games ever created.
