Yeah the moment I saw it up I grabbed it. Showin' my support for the series. Bloody Roar 1 holds up surprisingly well after all these years. That never ceases to amaze me.
I've actually been thinking of doing a retrospective video on the series but I recently stumbled across the TVTropes page for Bloody Roar and EGAD! It's like the polar opposite of my opinions on the series (except for 4)!
Bloody Roar 1 Me: One of the best (and fastest) of the series. Holds up surprisingly well. TVT: Rather bland and button mashy.
Bloody Roar 2 Me: Adds great new characters but the controls and graphics seem worse and some characters lost more moves than they gained. Varied inputs for specials actually becomes a bad thing here due to lack of in-game movelist. TVT: Best of the series.
Bloody Roar 3 Me: Mix 1 and 2 together and clean it up and you about get BR3. TVT: Good but mashier than 2.
Primal Fury/Extreme Me: Even smoother, more cleaned up, more moves, Bloody Roar at it's finest. TVT: Mashiest of the series.
Bloody Roar 4 Me: Least mashy entry on the series, but too many moves were removed, they tried to hard to veer away from the 2D aspects of the gameplay, and it's overall a mess. TVT: A mess.
XD I dunno if I should question my taste in fighters as the better I find a Bloody Roar to be, the "mashier" it's claimed to be or not. Actually on second though I'm leaning twords "No". Just because a fighter is "mashier" doesn't mean it's not better than it's less mashy counterparts when played at a higher level. Bah! Whatever.
