    I bought FaceBreaker with 5 dollars I found in my couch, and I want my money back. FaceBreaker is an incredibly difficult fighter that II bought FaceBreaker with 5 dollars I found in my couch, and I want my money back. FaceBreaker is an incredibly difficult fighter that I couldn't keep playing past the first 30 mins. I do think that, should I put my time in t this broken game, that I might find some enjoyment, hence the 1/10, but taking the time to get good enough at this game to make it enjoyable, I'm not sure if I'm willing to do that, when there are so many other games I would rather play.

    Joshua C. sums this game up perfectly in my opinion. The reviewers seemed to have played this game for about 15-30 minutes and madeJoshua C. sums this game up perfectly in my opinion. The reviewers seemed to have played this game for about 15-30 minutes and made judgments far too quickly. It has the funniest cast of characters in any fighting game. The gameplay is fast-paced, but certainly not a button-mashing festival as the reviews may suggest. Once you master the easiest difficulty level (which is pretty hard itself), the game has great replay value as you step up the difficulty. Much like the old Punch-Out!!! game, most opponents have a weakness that can be exploited, which makes even the fastest or strongest opponents beatable. If you get stuck on an opponent, finally taking him/her down feels fantastic. Seriously, try this game for yourself, it's a great time. Full Review »

Slowly.The first hour I spent with this game, I felt like I was flailing a bit with the controls. But then things started clicking. Slowly. I've finished this game on the easiest difficulty level and some boxers were very tough to figure out how to beat them. But once you do, it gets a lot easier. I played with Ice all the way through. Good fun. And yes, I had to play some boxes like 15 or 20 times to figure out how to beat them, because my default style wasn't cutting it. So I need to experiment. Throwing them into corners more. Dodging away. Learning how to counter their special stun move. Others I beat almost immediately, because my default style was perfect to take them down. I had with arcade wrestling games back in the mid eighties. I haven't played online yet. Curious to see how my skills stack up against another opponent. Plus you can get this game very cheaply right now. This game definitely doesn't deserve a 54. I'd probably give it a 75, although the fun I've had with it bumps it up even more for me. Full Review »
