  1. 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.

    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]

    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]
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

    It looks absolutely incredible - easily the best-looking GBA game yet. [Feb 2004, p.53]

    All around there's just too much repetition in this game. It's fun for half-an-hour tops and that's it.

    A very underrated beat em up, this one adds elements like power-ups and the ability to explore different routes, it also has some nice musicA very underrated beat em up, this one adds elements like power-ups and the ability to explore different routes, it also has some nice music and cut-scenes, however boss fights are very unforgiving, the kind of game that doesn't let you **** up too much, don't play if you're a casual gamer.
