5.0 out of 5 stars Badassery. So much of it. So little time. May 27, 2010
By Kit
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You think you know badass? You think you know what it means to be badass? Let you tell you something: You don't. Not until you've played "Kenka Bancho", you shabazo. What is a "shabazo"? Why, that would be you, if you haven't sat down and entered the world that Atlus' new (well, relatively) import has to offer.

The premise of "Kenka Bancho" is but simple: You are a Bancho, a title awarded to the best fighter in your little high school class, perhaps even the entire school. Your job, my friend, is to seek out other Banchos from other schools and beat them into submission. There can only be one ultimate Bancho in the city, and that's you. And if you're daring enough, you can even become the greatest Bancho in the entire district. Maybe. But wait, there's a problem - how do you go about accomplishing this? That's easy. You see, your class decided to have a little field trip to some boring museum and, guess what, the other high schools across the country also felt obligated to partake in this really uncool idea. What lamers. But hey, an opportunity is an opportunity and you should take the chance to prove your dominance. Your manliness. Can you do it?

When it comes right down to it, "Kenka Bancho" is a beat-'em-up brawler with RPG elements. You can travel to different areas of town via bus and train to scour for Banchos (or you can walk, if you feel badass enough for it). As you're busy punching the ground with your feet, you'll find yourself challenged by lesser peons with no brains - you can take them on, or you can ignore them. Choose the former, and you and said peon Ignoramous Maxamillionaire will perform a mini-game that's one part staring contest (with LASERS!), one part button prompt, and one part trash talking. Win the game and you get the precious first punch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Fun December 19, 2009
By John P

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the funniest game i have played in a long time.

Setting: you are a high school student on a class trip and you go around trying to kick the asses of all the other high school students from other schools in order to become number 1.

Gameplay: three demensional walking around and beating people in the streets. you gather money to buy new clothes, hair styles, etc. You also learn new moves as you progress and learn special attacks as well.

Difficulty: adjustable, but pretty easy to just complete because it's a 7 day scenario and when time is up, you will "complete" the game. however, there are amny different endings depending on your performance throughout the game.

Storyline: very simple, but i was able to enjoy it immensely. i elaborate below why.

Basically, some people might find the game monotonous after a few play throughs, but it was very funny and enjoyable for me. I can pick this game up and play it just for a few minutes a time or a few hours a time. I have lived through a similar experience. I can't speak for the other countries, but in Japan and Korea, high school students always have a big class trip and there aren't that many destinations to go, and you always have many schools congregating in the same cities and everyone has differnt uniforms, and there are always fights that break out.

But having said that even if you don't get a nostalgic feeling like i do playing this game, it'll still be fun if you are looking for mindless bash em up type gaming experience.

The loading times are a bit annoying because you walk into a store, load. you walk out of the store, load. you get a bus, load. basically ANYTHING you do besides walking and beating people in the streets, load.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Assness to go! February 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Kenka Bancho Badass Rumble is a sweet game for the PSP. Featuring tons of customizable options and multiple story branches, theres plenty to do and see. The gameplay is like a modern version of 2d brawlers from yesteryear like Double Dragon, Final Fight, and River City Ransom. Fans of that genre should definitely pick this up!

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy on PSN June 4, 2012
By Bob
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I played this game on my friend's PSP and thought it was a lot of fun. The game itself plays alot like a tongue in cheek version of the Yakuza games, focusing on being "manly" and the number one Bancho in all of Japan. However the version I have is the one you buy off of the Playstation network digital store, and it does not work at all. it crashes during the cut-scene after the very first fight, and forces my PSP to reset itself. That version if broken completely, and I have heard people experiencing similar completely broken games with the disk versions as well. It's a fun game but buyer beware it might just not work at all. make sure you get a copy with a return policy.
