Review: Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2

by Mazen Abdallahon June 19, 2017
It’s a great time for fighting game enthusiasts. We’ve got some amazing new sequels out in the market, and after the bumpy launch of Street Fighter V, fans can look forward to much more streamlined experiences from classics like Tekken 7 and relative newcomers like Injustice 2 (both reviewed by Nazih Fares the past months). […]

Review: Tekken 7

by Nazih Fareson June 9, 2017
In these modern days, 3D fighting games are a rare commodity. Born from 3D craze of the mid-1990s, with an urge for every single console in the market to enter this new dimension, the genre flourished… until it almost disappear entirely. Let’s face it, in the case of fighting games, a combat in a 3D environment can pose many […]

Review: Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

by Nazih Fareson November 15, 2016
A year and a half after the first game, Bandai Namco (or Namco Bandai) finally launched the sequel Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, with a slightly extended cast of characters, adding some key features, but is it really enough to fix the flaws of the original game? Before I start, I should let you all know that […]


Review: The King of Fighters XIV

by Nazih Fareson August 28, 2016
In the past couple of month, it seems like fighting game fans got an overwhelming bunch of new releases for all styles, from Capcom’s Street Fighter V, Mortal Kombat XL, Pokken, and of course the upcoming Tekken 7 and Injustice 2… Among this awesome list of names comes as well a new chapter in Japanese legendary series, […]

Review: Blade Arcus from Shining Battle Arena

by Mazen Abdallahon July 30, 2016
There’s a whole world of Japanese games out there that I know little to nothing about. I recently added the Shining series to that list, when I found out about it through this game. Essentially, Blade Arcus is a fighting game that takes characters from those two RPG’s and pits them against each other in […]

Review: One Piece: Burning Blood

by Nazih Fareson June 11, 2016
Released couple of months ago, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 set the bar high when it comes to cell-shading and anime styled fighting game, nullifying any kind of previous release such as the Dragon Ball Z series (which has seen better days). Namco Bandai and Spike Chunsoft now turn their hand to another popular manga […]


Review: Koihime Enbu

by Febronia Armiaon June 5, 2016
I don’t know if this is a common thing that tends to happen, but I for one have this avid refusal to play male characters in a fighting game if there are female characters available. This itch prevails even if the male characters are in a higher abundance or allow for a better play style suitable […]

Review: Mortal Kombat XL

by Nazih Fareson March 24, 2016
Mortal Kombat X offered enough quality to its release in April 2015 to make their way to the gates of the biggest tournaments of fighting games, including EVO Championship Series, but also its own Mortal Kombat Cup for now two year. Almost a year after the release of the Vanilla version and just after the […]

Review: Street Fighter V

by Nazih Fareson February 22, 2016
It’s been 7 years since the first version of Street Fighter IV came out, followed every two years by a more reconciled version to end it in 2014 with Ultra Street Fighter IV. With over four versions (Vanilla, Super, Arcade Edition, Ultra) released of the previous opus, Capcom has lost some of the players along the way, tired […]


Review: Dragon Ball Xenoverse

by Nazih Fareson June 28, 2015
Besides being one of the cult stories of the manga history, Dragon Ball is a series whose popularity has incredible longevity. This popularity which despite the disappointments, makes us wait for Goku’s newest console adventures. Dragon Ball Xenoverse was no exception to the rule. During the PlayStation 2 generation, video games were in a kind of golden age. At […]
