Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble


Who is biggest badass mo-fo this side of Kyoto? Do you have dreams of being the badass? Do you contemplate on the deep philosophical meaning of increasing your manhood via...

Great humor ; Innovative gameplay ; Good graphics ; Lots of Japanese charm

Goals are unclear at times ; Fighting feels plain ; Music is a non-issue

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble


Once upon a time there was a game called River City Ransom. On the surface this Technos game looked like any other 8-bit brawler, however it didn't take long to discover that this action game was incredibly ambitious. Instead of making you fight...

Even with some questionable controls and outdated graphics, Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble feels like the River City Ransom sequel I've been waiting for. There's plenty of exciting action, tons of boss fights and a whole city to explore. If you can get...

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble on PSP


Don't stop. This is bat country

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble is the brawler that most old school gamers have been hoping will come out. Sadly at the current price point most of them aren’t going to even make an attempt to pick it up. While it is a genre that deserves more love then it...

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble


It's not the best brawler around, but this memorable adventure has style to spare.

Characters have tons of personality ; The story mode is memorable and offers plenty of replay value ; Wide variety of customization options, from the awesome to the absurd ; Frequent unlocking of new moves makes brawling rewarding

Brawling is stiff and slow ; Environments feel lifeless

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble


This off the wall brawler from Atlus is full of humor, but the fighting kills the fun.

Once that's out of the way, the battle begins, and oftentimes you'll be paired up against multitudes of enemies. You can opt to bring a partner into a battle, either the friend you come into the game with, or other Bancho you've already defeated, and...

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble Review


Fighting 'round Japan has a refreshingly wacky air in Atlus' PSP brawler.

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble


A lot of games take themselves too seriously. Whether it's a dark, metaphoric yarn or a brooding and emotional protaganist, some games just don't go for a flat out wacky story or tongue-in-cheek tone, trends that are sorely missing from games today.

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble is a fun, bizarre and hilarious throwback to a time when games where about saving girlfriends and kicking ass, and is only marred by slow combat and weak sound effects.

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble


A brawler where strength is measured in laser eyes, insults and ass-kicking.

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble


It's something of a miracle that Kenka Bancho is even coming out on this side of the planet. It's not unwieldy or inaccessible, it's just that particular flavor of crazy that you'd catch at the Tokyo Game Show and never, ever expect to see cross the...

Review: Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble (Sony PSP)


Just to brush the top layer off of the game's story, the player assumes the role of a character on his senior school trip to the city of Kyouto in Japan. Unfortunately for the school and its teachers, your character, with the default name of Takashi...

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble might not sport the best graphics or stellar sound, but its gameplay is an example of why I love brawlers. Even though it can be repetitive and has a few gameplay quirks, Kenka Bancho has plenty of attitude and humor to...
