  1. I was surprised to find a decent 4 player brawler in the same vein as "Power Stone." While this game is not perfect, it is a decent game that you will gain several hours of enjoyment out of, especially playing against your friends.
  2. It is nothing that will compete next to "Halo 2" and "GTA," but it is still a pretty good fighting game that is based on a Anime cartoon.
  3. The major characters are all here and in full action, giving a decent variety of fighters to choose from. However, the bland, uninspired combat system leaves something to be wished, no matter how many Rave and Shadow Stones materialize onscreen.
  4. A pretty simplistic game and many people might look at this as a bad thing but I see this as actually what makes the game so fun.

    The action feels brisk and isn't hampered by overly complex controls. It also offers a decent amount of play modes, including a story mode.
  6. It isn't a bad game per se, but I'm relatively certain that it's only going to mean something to Rave Master fans, otherwise I'd suggest you pass.
  7. You should pick this one up only if you can handle a certain level of broken in your fighting game mechanics, and only if the control lag doesn't bother you.
  8. 60
    It won't make GameCube owners forget about "Super Smash Bros. Melee," but it's a worthy alternative if you think characters with spiked hair and furrowed brows are cool, feel there aren't enough fighting games that let you change into smoke, or don't mind a special move that causes you to dance like John Travolta.
  9. Simply put, this game will put you to sleep faster than reading a book on the history of anthropology.
  10. Gameplay is fun and frenzied, though weapon balancing is off. [June 2005, p.97]
  11. While I thoroughly enjoyed Rave Master: Special Attack Force on GBA for its simplistic play control and Ranking mode, Rave Master for GameCube didn't quite measure up to the Rave-olution.
  12. It's also hella simplistic and the 3D models less than spectacular. [May 2005, p.54]
  13. The game is perfectly, almost proverbially, meh.
  14. The mediocre level designs, awful voice acting, spotty controls, and the boring/mindless Story Mode keep it from being as cool as its box art suggests.
  15. 20
    The worst fighting game of all time. Worse than "Vs," even worse than Evil Zone. If you play it...I'm afraid you may lose your sense of taste.
