Top critical review
on November 23, 2005
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! @_@
The graphics are both 3-D, flat, and Cartoon (or that could be a con, you decide)
Press same buttons repeatedly
More powerful blade is very likely guaranteed to win.
Bad voice overs!
This game isn't worth your money.
The only reason it got a two was because of the graphics.
