Game Overview

People say:


Credit goes to Namco for trying to do something different with a fighting game, but I think they were trying a bit too hard and put the effort into the wrong areas. Weapon Lord has 8-Bit quality animation, poor control and ho-hum music If you can look beyond that, you'll find a game that has all-new fighting techniques. I applaud them for that, but gamers will most likely be turned off by the look of the game. If you're bored stiff by SF2 or MK, you may like this one.


Weapon Lord is a good example of how not to make a fighting game With exception to the fine character art, the rest of the game is not done well at all. Yes, the characters are very well drawn, but they aren't depicted well enough onscreen because of the grainy graphics And two- or three-frame animations won't do in any game. But the real kicker here is the play control. This game needs improvement in response and timing. Fight fans will be disappointed.


Weapon Lord is loaded with cool concepts, and neat characters. The graphics are appealing, and the voices are the best the Genesis can do. Now comes the bad part. The game play is really choppy, as is the animation. Even Knowing the moves and the combos, the computer can tear you apart, because it isn't slowed down by poor control. The animation is at most three-frame. I expected more from Namco. The concepts are there, but the game just isn't.


From a first glance, the game suffers from a grainy, graphic look. The characters are cool and have good themes but the lack of animations and choppy graphics only point to the fact that there wasn't enough space on the cart to do it right. The concepts in the game such as guard drops and offensive counters are great, but the game isn't all that visually appealing. It plays well with a lot of new techniques like holding the button and top rotations--but it may frustrate some players.
