Ran should have known that Hayato is camera-shy.

The 3D graphics with 2D gameplay structure of the recently released Street Fighter IV is not something new to Capcom because they have been experimenting with it in a lot in their past fighting games. Though I didn't particularly care much about the Street Fighter EX series that were released for the first two PlayStations, I have played them before and they weren't that bad. Choukkousenki Kikaioh is pretty average so Capcom's best effort prior to Street Fighter IV was Moero! Justice Gakuen, the sequel to Rival Schools on the PlayStation. The game still looks great and the camera remains static for the most part until crazy special moves are executed on the screen. Capcom uses different stereotypes of Japanese high-schoolers to create the game's unique and diverse cast of characters that include a photographer who uses her camera's flash as an attack, a cold-looking violinist, and a member of a swimming team. Sadly, geeks are not included. You can have up to three characters in your team and use combination attacks with them but the game only allows you to switch main characters in between rounds. This Japanese release includes a fun board game that is not found in the domestic version that was released under the title of Project Justice.
