    bloody roar went pretty much downhill after bloody roar 2
    Yeah, aesthetically is pleasing. But gameplay is so basic and slow in comparison to br2 now. This is a perfect example of a slow fighting game

  1. I was also disappointed to see that BR4 is still lacking in the ever-important single-player experience. [Holiday 2003, p.44]
  2. Being able to upgrade you characters is fantastic, but instead of offering interesting challenges or match types to do this with, career mode presents a boring glut of one-round bouts. [Nov 2003, p.92]
  3. There's nothing good to say about the gameplay, which ignores skill and encourages button-mashing. Stay away from this beast -- it bites. [Dec 2003, p.222]
