Beat'm up/Fighting game

Great Battle 2 - Last Fighter Twin is a beat'em up by Banpresto and features 'Super Deformed' versions of Ultraman, Gundam, Kamen Rider and Fighter Roa. Once again, Earth is facing certain doom and a group of super-heroes decides to save the world. The player must first pick up a team of two characters and both will be available to play. They can simply be switched from one to the other at any time during the game - they however share the same life-bar and special attacks points. Each character can punch, kick, jump and even use special powers or charge-up fireballs. Fortunately, our heroes can also pick-up weapons and use them to strike their opponents down from afar. Orbs can be collected along the way to unleash special attacks usually consisting of screen-wide blasts o f energy (each character has its own set of spectacular attacks). In a way similar to Sega's Golden Axe, three levels of special attacks are available and the more powerful they are, the more orbs our heroes will use. A two-player mode is available where players use two characters each.

The Great Battle cast The Great Battle was a series of games by Banpresto that always followed a 'crossover' formula of 'Super Deformed' versions of milestones of Japanese Pop-Culture characters such as Gundam, Ultraman, Kamen Rider and Fighter Roa (the only proprietary Branpresto character). Banpresto is partially owned by Bandai since February 1989 and they started working on SD Mobile Suit Gundam and other Ultraman franchises from that point on. Six different Great Battle games are available for the Super Famicom System : SD The Great Battle (1990), The Great Battle II: Last Fighter Twin (1992), The Great Battle III (1993), The Great Battle IV (1994), The Great Battle Gaiden 2 (1994), The Great Battle V (1995). More titles are of course available, such as Great Battle Cyber (GameBoy, 1992), Tekkyu Fight!: The Great Battle Gaiden (1993), The Great Battle VI (Playstation, 1997) and The Great Battle Pocket (GameBoyColor, 1999).

Great Battle 2 - Last Fighter Twin is another funny little game featuring those chubby (and cute) Gundam and Ultraman characters. The game, despite a really appealing look with its cute 'Super Deformed' sprites and monster designs, suffers from some repetitive action and controls can be a bit slow and imprecise. Thanks to the 'Super Deformed' style of the game, our heroes have ridiculously short arms - for that matter, punches and weapons attack ranges are rather short and make some parts of the game really difficult and sometimes frustrating. As it is often the case with game from the 'Great Battle' series, they look fun and cute at first but they quickly become monotonous... despite some interesting moments (for instance, in the second stage, a bridge slowly collapses as you walk over it and shrinking the fighting area). Again, fans of the cute mech-series will have some fun, but fans of traditional beat'em up genre may not greatly enjoy this title - later episodes of the series are actually better than this one...
