  1. Fights soon degenerate into a short-range melee where you slug it out with blows and the occasional throw move. There is no balance, and button-bashers will feel right at home as you soon realise there is little room for tactics or skill.

    its a great fighting game with monsters which is cool because you are huge compared to everything else and i never experienced that until now. Because you are so large you can shoot your opponent but you can also shoot down helicopters that are flying around which is a great touch. another great thing about this game is that you can use cars for weapons to throw which is funny. the only issue i have is the split screen
