    Mr. Miyagi is back… but he shouldn't have left the set of Karate Kid. Reality Fighters may have an interesting concept, but the quality never left the drawing board. This incredibly boring game fails in almost every way. Do not under any circumstances buy it.

    Despite having a fun premise and plenty of fighting styles to muck around with, the average fighting mechanics, seemingly random customisation options and lacklustre modes let it down. Reality Fighters isn't broken, but it isn't very good.

    Reality Fighters has its fun moments, and showing off the AR fighting to a technophobe can be enjoyable, but you will tire of the game incredibly quickly after you realize just how simple the fighting mechanics are, and how little depth the game has.

    Reality Fighters is a lackluster beat'em-up, designed around a nice idea but plagued by a broken augmented reality feature and some control and depth issues. Miyagi is a cool addition and the character editor is somewhat decent, but the game is mostly disappointing.

    Crippled, but not useless. Even though its main story mode presents no challenge whatsoever - you can find that elsewhere - going through all the special moves was fun enough for the first little while.

    Reality Fighters forces players to follow what's going on with its augmented reality functions. So players will end up sitting in their living room looking at a game that takes place in their own home, if they see anything at all. And as a bonus, it throws in terrible humor.

    Almost a neat idea, but this is a tech demo at best.

    Reality Fighters is an unmitigated disaster. It begins with a questionable concept and meets a fiery, disastrous end at the hands of poorly implemented AR and botched fighting mechanics. If you are looking for proof that AR is the future, look on.

    Reality Fighters is nothing more than a tech demo for PS Vita's augmented reality capabilities. As a game it offers insipid gameplay, poor customization, some bugs and no interest. Forget it.

    The user score for this game is way to low.
    The fact is, this game is fun, funny, creative, has a lot of customization and you can get it in amazon for a cheap price.
    However, the scenarios are plain and boring (Which is a shame because the pictures and locations are gorgeous), the female model is really ugly, the graphics look slighty below average at best, the optional touch controls are overpowered and there are simply some plain weird design choices that seem made by an amateur.

    To make it short: This is an average games. It does some stuff right and some stuff wrong and the rest gets in the middle. If you want to try a spanniard game out of curiosity or just like the concept, you can still get it, but don't expect something out of this world.

    PS: Some jerk decided that the platinum trophy should require you to have 5 friends with the game (I've heard you can get it with only one friend, but I haven't tryed yet)

    This game sounds so cool, but don't be fooled.

    This game sounds so cool, but don't be fooled.

    The Pros: Customizing your characters is very fun, there is alot of different things you can put on your character which also changes how strong their attack, defense, speed, and stuff like that.
    The fighting styles are also memorable, and flashy.

    The Cons: Your characters fighting styles are choosen from the other in game characters, you dont get to make your own (This sadly common in alot of character creator fighting games).
    The actual fighting is not that fun, and gets boring quick.
    The create your own stage with ps vita camera gimmick is not that good, and doesn't always put the fighters where you want them.

    And The Mediocre: The controls work, but there not great.
    The visuals are nothing special.
    The in game characters are interesting, but nothing real special.

    This game is simply not fun, and you should not waste your money on this.

I give it this rate also for the story, for me is a little stupid but i laughed a little. Full Review »
