GUEST REVIEW by my husband!
This game was a surprise to me. I had not idea what to expect. I had never played with the beyblade toys or seen any television show about them, so aside from a few television commercials, I was clueless about how this game/story/universe worked or was presented.
The game we were sent was a demo copy. As such there were only a few modes open. This was unfortunate. The training screens were longer then I expected and I struggled to read through it all. The part of the game that was open was this combat arena.
Actually playing the game was frustrating. It didn’t feel like I was actually controlling much. You drop these virtual tops into an arena and swing the wii remote around (while pressing buttons) hoping you can make your top smash into the other tops. You try and knock your opponents out of the ring or be the last one standing. I never got the feel of controlling the tops, and I was lost in the options and the different attributes that you had for each beyblade.
Perhaps in the full version of the game that had a story mode that you learned some of the more intricate control and more understanding of the attributes as they are revealed in the story. Story always works better for me then just reading instructions on how to play.
I can’t recommend this game on what was in the demo though.
Thanks so much to Hudson Entertainment for sending us a review copy of this game.
