Virtual On Cybertroopers
Get your virtual fighter on, get it on, yeah!
I like the pop song twang that this game's title seems to be striving for, it befits it's style really! Gameplay wise it is a fighter with robots, of which it packs no less than 8. The game takes place in a 3d world but you will be mainly seeing the action as a sidescroller, though, certainly, you can use the third dimension to parade out of tackles and for a few other moves. But mainly you will be facing your enemy, so there are no extra problems that plague you in this one department. Anyway, one advantage of Virtual On: Cyber Troopers is that it looks like it's been produced by fans of the robot/mech TV series of yore, you know, the cartons and live action series with transformer type robots, all clad in intense blues and other colors and with motorcycle head gear on. Yap, it's that campy, really, but it sure is worth a revisit, especially if you love Virtua Fighter and that kind of blocky low fi 3D fighting scene. Me, I must admit that I loved the bipping and the swooshing of the soundtrack more than the fights themselves, but then again I'm not that big on fighters. So it might do more for you, like I said, if you love a 3D fighter who wants to be cool, 90s style!
A great machines fighting game
This stunning action game is based on the idea of machines fighting which was already present before it but it took the idea to new heights. The most innovative thing about this game is its innovative gameplay and the exiting and unique control system which requires a dual joystick setup. Such a set up for controls was launched for the first time. This fighting and action game has an unlikely mix involving third person shooter and agile machines fighting each other. The graphics are really jaw dropping for those times and the arenas that are present in the game has some very well textured and attractive backgrounds. The VR's or the character pilots are also very nice looking featuring some great animations. The textures of the explosions are very transparent and the weapon trails are numerous which is very fascinating for gamers like me. Though the sounds in the game are pretty much diverse but they are not something really to flaunt about. The gameplay is a great mix of fighting and third person shooter game. Every VR can crouch, sidestep, jump and dash apart from doing a variety of other things. It's more of a fighting game rather than a shooter game and involves some very realistic combat features which are also complex. I can easily recommend this to any one anytime. Being a fighting game lover, Virtua Fighter is another good game on my favorite's list.
