A bit on the funny side, but a solid fighter game nonetheless
Body Blows is a pretty decent fighter game, the kind you don't really take seriously at first, but when it kicks in, you know you are in for a great time. It's also the kind of game that you know has been inspired from the greats, but had to go about creating its own little world, so that you won't think that it is a direct copy of some other high end fighter. What I'm most reminded of when playing it is, as you'll figure out minutes after starting it up, is Street Fighter, with which Body Blows shares a bit of the graphics (the style) and the way you can knit your button mashing to create combos. Is it as good as any of those games? Well, it's definitely around there, surely not as good, but pretty much in the ballpark. So, if you're looking for that kind of fighter thrill, while also looking to play a game that isn't a one on one copy, Body Blows will surely do its part. And, the alternative, Ultimate Body Blows packs in even more diversity, reason enough to give it a try as well, as it is sure a more diverse experience.
