    The Gamecube's controller makes this game nearly impossible to play. Get it for PS2 or XBOX. Most of the new characters are pretty dull and uninspired, but the returning fighters look as good as ever.

  1. More exceptional and more stylish than any other game in the series, Deception will provide an endless amount of entertainment.

    A great diversion from the usual fighting template. So while it may not be as complex or responsive as a number of other 3D (or even 2D) fighters out there, it's a hell of a lot of fun (whether you stink at it or not).

    Offers a ton of bloody entertainment, even when going online isn't an option. [Apr 2005, p.131]
