  1. Has to be the most underrated, overlooked game of the year. Ever since Power Stone died with the Dreamcast, there hasn't really been an entertaining 3D four-person melee fighting game. Gotcha Force takes the Power Stone-type genre to the next level.
  2. Fans of "Power Stone" or "Smash Brothers" should especially be interested in the frantic battle action Gotcha Force has to offer.
  3. This is a big, deep game that does justice to the glory days of playing with Go-Bots and Transformers, while incorporating all the collecting madness of Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh.

    But the fact is, I've never seen the concept handled so well. Despite the fact that you can't tune an individual Borg (like you could do in Custom Robo), you can build such a dizzying array of different lineups that this game has so much more playability than almost any other Gamecube action game.

    One of the best games in existence with a large variety of playable robots with each type offering a different way to play makes this gameOne of the best games in existence with a large variety of playable robots with each type offering a different way to play makes this game create a standard no other game has reached since.

    Simply put the "professional" reviewers who gave this game a low score should be ashamed of themselves.

    Great combat, millions of combination for your teams and some real variety in gameplay this game pretty much consumed my gamecube. Sure thereGreat combat, millions of combination for your teams and some real variety in gameplay this game pretty much consumed my gamecube. Sure there were other games such as zelda and such but I beat this game 10 times to unlock the hidden characters. The storyline was garbage but the gameplay made up for it so well that it really didn't matter. Not only did it have some fun co-op but it have 4 player split screen versus which amused my friends and I for hours on end. If you ever find this in the used bin, pick it up, you won't regret it.
