It should go without saying that Beyblade: G-Revolution is aimed at those who are fans of the show. This is a popular anime show and this game which was made for the Gameboy Advance was released to give gamers and fans of the show a little taste of what it would be like to be in the Beyblade world!
No, we are not talking about Mike Tyson’s Punch Out here! Tyson is the name of the character that you will play as and he is the main character from the TV show. The game is set during the third season the TV show and the basics are that you want to help Tyson become the best Beyblade player in the world. Beyblade you see is a sport, a sport played with these spinning top type things.
Who Got Story In My Beyblade?
Despite being a game based on a TV show, there is actually more “gameplay” here than you would think. The game is basically spilt up into two kinds of sections. You can walk around in an overhead kind of way which gives the game a somewhat RPG feel to it. Here you can talk to people, get new stuff, find out what you have to do and move the story on and so on. It is very easy to get to grips with and the game does not throw too much your way. You also have Beyblade battles which are quite easy to get the basics of. At first, it seems super simple as you use one button for attack and one for defense. However, you soon realize that there is more depth to the gameplay than that and you can dish out some pretty heavy-duty attacks and learn all kinds of new combos and get new spin tops and so on. I would think that unless you are a fan of the show, Beyblade: G-Revolution will probably not keep your attention for the long haul. However, I do feel that they tried their best here to make a game that actual Beyblade fans would enjoy.
16-Bit Goodness Before It Was Cool
While having 16-bit looking games is cool these days. Beyblade: G-Revolution is an original Gameboy Advance game and as a result, it has a fantastic, almost Super Nintendo kind of look to it. The walking around/RPG sections of the game have a real retro feel to them and I like that. It is the Beyblade battles though that really shines in terms of the presentation. They look pretty realistic and they have some really cool effects. It is really impressive what they managed to get the GBA to do with this game when it comes to the battles.
If you are a fan of the series then you will probably really like Beyblade: G-Revolution. It follows the show very well, it actually has quite a lot for you to do and the Beyblade battles are a blast to be a part of. I am not sure if it will be enough to keep non-fans interested in it until the end. However, if you are looking for something different to play this is worth checking out.
