Destroying monsters one episode at a time.

I grew up watching the Ultraman series and this game is based on the first of many of the giant super beings. Ultraman is basically a simple wrestling game - only you are fighting huge monsters while destroying the landscape around you in the process - with quick punch and kick attacks and a lot of grapple moves. It's a very easy game to play and if you know what you are doing, the matches can be over quickly. Of course, you want to be stylish with your wins - just like the TV show - and destroy your opponents with a super move, which usually involves charging up your strength and deploying the assault at the appropriate time. Though heavily truncated, the game has a story mode that follows the episodic nature of the source material very closely. Being a fan of the show, the game's nostalgic value is priceless and the versus mode where you can pit the monsters against each other is much appreciated!

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
