2.0 out of 5 stars BORING!
When you first start this game, it seems decent. You pick the basics like you usually do in games (gender, beggining Beyblade, ect.) and it looks promising. (Just incase you don't know, a beyblade is sort of like a battling top, except it has a monster - called a bit beast - inside it that can do attacks.)

But you'll soon find it is quite dull. Unlike Pokemon...

5.0 out of 5 stars Let it rip with the awesome Beyblade game!, November 18, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
I recently rented this game, but it's on my christmas list! Fans of Beyblade will be familliar with the concept, using a gun-shaped launcher strategicaly launch your battling top to win one of two ways: 1, stop your opponent's top from spinning 2, knock your opponent's top into one of the penalty pits of out of the stadium. However, the video game adds sone intersting strategy elements. A new way to win is by breaking your opponent's blade apart (crash out) (which can be done in the real game but is extremely rare). You can also control your Beyblade, which could only be done with an RC launcher. And the bit beasts (from the anime) play the biggest part, which can be activated by colliding with your opponent's top enough times.
The game is based on the Beyblade tournaments, however there are other features. You can play free battles to sharpen your skills. You can buy parts (which actualy exist) at the shop to customize your top and improve its performance. You can play fun games at the 1P zone, Team Battle & 10 Battle, or hook up with friends at the 4P zone. And you can view interesting blades at the gallery.
The graphics aren't anything to write home about, and the music can get repetitive, but the fun and strategic gameplay will make you forget about its bad points, and provide hours of fun.
So I'm not saying this game is perfect, I'm just saying I played this game for hours on end and saw small room for improvement. Please buy, or at least rent this game, wheather you're a Beyblade fan or not!

Kenny Asaro (Phoenix , Arizona USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
When my friend came over and we played i thought"this game is a piece of crap!"But then we played it and played it,and i start to get get the hang of it,then guess what,by that night i bought the game and a stadium and 3 beyblades and now i'm nuts about beyblades!!!
This game has no real story which makes it kind of boring.....but watching the beyblades spin and hit and using the cool characters,not to mention unlocking some,is cool.
The graphics are absolutely auesome and so is the music,but the thing is,when you hit your opponent,there HP goes down about 10.But when they hit you,your HP goes down by like,20!!!!
belive me,i looked.
here's what i say:
1.if you're obsessed about beyblades(like me)then buy it.
2if you like beyblades and you just think it's OK then rent it.
3if you hate beyblades whatsoever,then why are you looking at this review!?
anyway,...this game...ROCKS!!!
LET IT RIP!!!!!!!!!!!!
see ya,
kenny(remember me)
vote yes please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyblade V-Force Rocks, November 16, 2003
By 
"liger2082" (Atlanta,georgia usa) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
Beyblade V-Force: Super Tournament Battle is a journey into the world of childhood competition. You probably remember competing with your friends in various games like marbles or bottle cap slamming (POGs). Every generation must have their own, whether it's brand-new or a game from the past has been revived for a new audience.
Beyblade V-Force is the game of this generation (in the virtual world at least). It consists of something that you may not expect to see in a video game: spinning discs, a curved board, and special gun-shaped launchers that send the discs into battle. If this game doesn't ring a bell, don't worry. At first it didn't look like something I had seen before. Soon enough I was reminded of the similar, albeit primitive, versions that were available in the late 80s and early 90s. It was never my favorite kind of game, but was fun nonetheless.
Now we have a virtual version on the GameCube and a scaled-down version for the GBA. The GameCube version plays how you'd expect: shoot the disc into battle and control it with the thumbstick. Your goal is to "push" the other disc into one of the arena's gaps. Upon completing that task you win the battle, but not the game. That leads us to a very important note: there are a ton of battles in this game! They all boarder on being identical to each other, but if you like this sort of thing, you'll be glad to have so much to do before it ends.
To spice things up a bit, Beyblade V-Force includes some video game elements like battle power-ups. During battle you can unleash different super attacks that'll increase your chances of eliminating your opponent. Sometimes the attack will be so powerful that it knocks your opponent out of the arena. Other times it'll be powerful enough to weaken your adversary, causing the opposing disc (Beyblade) to either stop or break down. On the most unfortunate occasions you'll be faced with the unlucky result of a super attack block. Blocks prevent any damage from being received.
To launch these discs into battle, you start by watching a yellow meter increase towards the center of the screen. Press the A button whenever you wish, preferably as close to the red part of the meter as possible, and the discs will be thrust into battle. The yellow meter determines your Beyblade's power. If you fail to press the A button before the meter is full, you're doomed. The Beyblade fails to launch into a spin, automatically disqualifying it from that round. It's a harsh world out there, yes, but without harsh rules there would be no glory. And without this little bit of strategy added to the game, there wouldn't be much of a reason to strategize.
In a nutshell, Beyblade V-Force is a game about circular thumb movements. You'll circle the thumbstick and attempt to knock the opposing Beyblade out of the arena. It never gets any more involved than that. For that reason it's almost wrong to call this a video game. In actuality, it's a glorified, polygon-laden version of a game you can play in real life.
In the Mario Party sense, this game isn't too bad. It's more basic than a kid gamer will ever desire, but then again, so are most party games. Will kids like it if they don't even know what the heck a Beyblade is? Probably not. Part of the appeal of Mario Party is the fact that Mario, a well-known and very loved character, is the star. Parents would be wise to buy this for their children .
Reviewer's Scoring Details

Gameplay: 9Press the stick 'round and 'round...and 'round some more. There really isn't much more to do here. All things considered, this isn't a bad representation of the real-life counterparts. But if you have the real thing, you don't need this. And even if you don't have the real thing, this is far from a game that should be sought after. It's amusing, AND will be able to keep most kids busy for long periods of time.
Graphics:VERY VERY GOOD
Sound:8
Difficulty: Easy/Medium If your hands could burn calories, you'd lose a lot of weight spinning your thumb with this one.
Concept: 6.There isn't a whole lot to this game. It's just discs and spinning.
Multiplayer: Entertaining for Hours and Hours ESPECIALLY TAG TEAM WHEN YOU CAN HELP YOUR FRIEND IN FOR WAY BATTLES.
Overall: 9
Beyblade V-Force: Super Tournament Battle is very super when it is tag team battles and bit beast attack. P.S it is better then beyblade for playstaytion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, July 11, 2004
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
This is a very cool game. You can buy and customize your Bey Blade any way you like. You also earn new characters in the tornement mode like King and the DJ. You have three different bey bowls like a magenet stadium, a stadium with a spinning disk in the middle of the bowl and three out of bounds areas. Last one is the regurlar stadium. Theres also a gallery mode where you can see and unlock real bey blades. This game is up to 4 players. I may be 13 and not like the real bey blades that much but I like this game better since you can actually control the beys. It also has good graphics too. Overall this is a great game, and a must buy.

A Kid's Review
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
This is a very cool game. The graphics are awsome, and it has lots of cool blades and characters you can use. The game does not have much of a plot. And sometimes it takes waaaaaay to long just to knock out your opponents blade. But it is still pretty fun. I even have a tip for those of you having trouble with this game. Try to knock your opponent to the front of a gap in the ring, then when your opponents blade is in the middle of the gap unleash your bit beast. It should send you opponents blade flying out of the ring! I hope this review most of you to decied wether or not to buy this game.

Beyblade: Super Tournament Battle
As we all know, different cultures embrace different household products. Sometimes when outsiders take a look at these products they can't help but think how it is possible for someone to actually have interest in these things! This is the case with Japan's novelty toy, the Beyblade. Remember how the yoyo was revived after being ignored for decades? I'm guessing this is the same case with Beyblades, which are actually a modern reincarnation of...tops. For those of you who don't remember, they are those colourful spinning objects that you got as prizes at arcades when you couldn't collect more than 5 tickets from those money-devouring machines.
Now, some Japanese marketing genius decided to take the idea of these new toys and turn them into an animated television show... and so Beyblades was born. (On a side note, apparently the association that regulates TV shows in Japan says that in every cartoon there must be numerous strangely-clad children with spiky hair, ranging anywhere from pink to dark purple... but I digress)
Beyblade turned out to be a huge hit; the 2nd highest-ranking kids program on cable, to be exact. So what came next for this rapidly growing franchise? A videogame, of course.
Media
Impressions
First of all, let me clear up what Beyblade: Super Tournament Battle is all about. You don't play with your every day tops, in fact they can be customized in many ways: Bit, Attack Ring, Weight Disk, Spin Gear and Blade Base. All these characteristics will influence the performance of your Beyblade during battle! Yes, that's right, you don't simply watch your top spin but you also get to fight other blades in specially built arenas. Actually, they look like stadiums more than arenas. Why would thousands of people buy tickets to see tops hit each other? No idea, but let's move on.
To win your clashes in these specially built playing fields (one is magnetic for example, somehow making everything harder) you must knock down the Beyblade of your opponent and be the last top spinning. Upgrading and changing the five parts mentioned above will be fundamental for fights, which can include up to four players. Single-player, one-on-one, and Battle Royal modes are also available if you have no friends who are willing to take a spin with you.
Fans of the anime series will be glad to hear that Tyson, Kai, Ray, Max and others are playable characters. If you're not satisfied with them, or their hair color, Atari (who bravely produced and developed this title) have also included an option to make your own Beyblade: Super Tournament Battle champion. You can choose amongst many variations for your toy top, so that you may find the fighting technique that besy fits your style. Another way to make the battle go your way is exploit your Bit Beast spirits. A beast such as a dragon or bear will come assist you within the Beyblade. Things will get pretty interesting when both players unleash their animals...I think.
From the Horse's Mouth
* Bit Beasts spirits become raging animals who will help you with your battles.
* Single player and multi-player modes available.
* Popular Beyblade characters to be present and playable.
* Stadiums with gates, magnets, and other interactive features.
* Many options included for modifying characters and Beyblades.

2.0 out of 5 stars BORING!, November 23, 2005
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
When you first start this game, it seems decent. You pick the basics like you usually do in games (gender, beggining Beyblade, ect.) and it looks promising. (Just incase you don't know, a beyblade is sort of like a battling top, except it has a monster - called a bit beast - inside it that can do attacks.)

But you'll soon find it is quite dull. Unlike Pokemon games, this is practically a guarantee that you'll lose the match if your 'top' is weaker then the others, and your practically guaranteed to win if your 'top' is stronger.

Furthermore, you can get out your bit beast during battle (BIG flaw in this game). And you can use it as much as you like too. But first you have to get a power bar up to 1/3 of the whole power bar. If it's at 1/3, it's a weak strike, if it's at 2/3 it's a okay strike, and if it's at 3/3, then it's a strong strike. You get the power bar (or circle for this matter) up by hitting your oppenent. Of course, they get the same amount of 'power' in their 'power circle' as you do! However... you can get it faster if you hit the 'A' button on impact.

So your hitting the 'A' button the whole time.

And then to release your bit beast, you hit 'B'.

So basicaly here's what you do:

Press 'A' button OVER AND OVER to raise power in the bar while slanting coltrol stock to move around. Then hit 'B' to release your beast! That's it!

Heres the point system (You need Four points to win a round):

Sleep out --- Your opponents top stops spinning - 1 PT
Miss Shoot --- Your opponent misses a launch - 1 Pt
Stadium out --- Your opponents beyblade spins out of the stadium - 2 PT
Crash out --- Your opponent looses all HP - 4 Pt

The voice overs are beyond annoying! They constantly say the same thing, over and over, and over, and... well you get it.

Also, Multiplayer is probably worse then single! Wow! @_@

Pros -

Promising beggining
The graphics are both 3-D, flat, and Cartoon (or that could be a con, you decide)

Cons -

Press same buttons repeatedly
Boring Multiplayer
More powerful blade is very likely guaranteed to win.
Bad voice overs!

Overall -

This game isn't worth your money.

P.S.
The only reason it got a two was because of the graphics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless game, too simple and you will ask yourself why?, September 28, 2010
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
A pointless game with the most basic gameplay, two tops going at it until one stops spinning or is knocked out of the stadium. You do this throughout the whole game and gets really repetitive. Most of the special beast that your beyblade can have are carbon copies of the other ones and have almost the same animation every time you do the attack. This game is just a cash in to the toy line and you'll have more fun with the actual beyblade and friends to play with them then this game. Don't Buy!

If you do buy it then have fun wasting your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars BORING GAME, December 28, 2006
A Kid's Review
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Beyblade VForce: Super Tournament Battle (Video Game)
After playing this game for about 4 or 5 days, you start to realize that nothing new is happening!

How the Game Works:

1. Beyblade in tournaments (It usually takes 30 seconds to win a battle)

2. Go to the shop and buy supplies to improve your beyblade

3. Beyblade in tournaments

4. Go to the shop

5. Beyblade in tounraments

THIS GAME IS BORING AND NOT FUN! YOU SHOULD NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS POORLY MANUFACTURED GAME!
