Beat'm up/Fighting game

Our four favorite champions are back in this side-scrolling beat'm up by Banpresto - Ultraman, Gundam, Kamen Rider and Fighter Roa are back and ready to save the world. Our friends were peacefully flying their spaceship when a meteor appeared from nowhere and hit them. They make a desperate landing on a weird planet from another time. Unlike other games of the series, this third opus happens during medieval times and our heroes have traded their usual laser guns and plasma bombs for more traditional swords and spears. All the enemies also have a medieval feel to them and our heroes will often fight knights, dragons, wizards and giant bats. This time around, the player can also switch from any of the four characters and each one of them have his own weapon : Gundam uses a sword, Ultraman a morning-star, Kamen Rider a spear and Fighter Roa a bow . A two simultaneous player mode is also available.

Great Battle 3 is a fun and simple beat'm up. The overall graphic design of the game is excellent and the 'Super Deformed' style (common to this series) is right on target. The medieval theme adds a sense of novelty to the franchise - you often wonder what kind of goofy creature will show up around the next corner. Stages are surprisingly well structured and go beyond the usual 'clean everything up and go ahead' - you'll find collapsing ledges or dark and maze-like mines. Great Battle 3 is a decent game but it will only appeal to fans of the popular Japanese pop culture series. Hardcore beat'em up Fans won't find here a game to quench their thirst... but, between you and me, I had some fun playing this game, so why not give it a shot ?
