  1. Kintaro's Revenge is a highly likable and fun game that adds something extra to the template of the forgotten genre, the sideways scrolling beat 'em up.
  2. The backdrops, too, are marvellous and the ancient Japanese feeling is matched perfectly with a slow and unsettling score. Whenever you are ambushed, this is quickly replaced with an adrenaline-inducing rush of beats, and you'll find yourself dragon-punching in rhythm to the music.
  3. In a lot of ways, Gekido Advance: Kintaro's Revenge feels less like a commercial product and more like a fan-made tribute to the genre of 2D beat-'em-ups.
  4. Anime-style cut scenes with simple animation and written text help give Gekido a dramatic edge over other street fighters in the "Final Fight" vein. [Dec 2003, p.150]
  5. If you're craving a good fighter, you can't go wrong here. Gekido is the most visually impressive GBA game yet. [Fall 2003, p.46]
  6. All around there's just too much repetition in this game. It's fun for half-an-hour tops and that's it.
  7. It looks absolutely incredible - easily the best-looking GBA game yet. [Feb 2004, p.53]
