Bloody Roar 4 Gameplay Movie 6
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 25
  2. Negative: 5 out of 25
  1. I actually found myself enjoying the game. This may be due to the blood or the speed of the game, or it may even be the strategy that is behind the game. Fighter games can be fought with a lot of strategy, but I just mash the living daylights out of my controller buttons.
  2. I was quite surprised to find myself really enjoying this installment. While I won't put it with "VF 4" or "Soul Calibur II," it does enough to dish out a good time. [Dec 2003, p.150]
  3. If you have played the series before, prepared to be under whelmed as no real new tactics or specials have been added this year.
  4. 60
    If the game offered anything beyond a gimmick that grew stale three games ago, we'd have something to recommend. But with nothing more than generic button mashing and a sorry excuse for a career mode, Bloody Roar 4 is for die-hard fans of the series and furries only.
  5. The game looks great, no doubt about it, but it controls terribly, and just isn't any fun to play.
  6. BR4 is simply BROKEN. Nothing here manages to come together the way that it should and this leads to frustration and boredom.
  7. Its arenas are cramped, flat, and bland, and its gameplay structure is dated, boring, and laughable. [Dec 2003, p.152]

    El hard is wrong on so many levels. I agree much more with Wang, and I'm am very sorry about his recent personal losses. Bloody Roar 4 El hard is wrong on so many levels. I agree much more with Wang, and I'm am very sorry about his recent personal losses. Bloody Roar 4 is a great game that critics will bash just because of their personal politics and their feelings towards animals. Reviewing this game should not be left in their hands. Hardcore gamers will recognize how amazing this game is the minute they play it. It's immersive gameplay is second only to my personal favs Metroid Prime, Taz: Wanted, and Britney's Dance Beat. Do yourself a favor and at least rent this game. Even if you are not a fighting game fan. If you are a fan of fighting games, put down your Shadowblade, just throw out your copies of Virtua Fighter 4 and Soul Calibur 2, and drop a few bucks on Bloody Roar 4, the game that will end up being the most underrated of the year. In 20 years, when video games are beyond our wildest dreams, people will still be looking back on Bloody Roar 4 for inspiration. Not just for video games, but for life as well. Expand
