L-L-L-Let it rip! (G-Revolution)
Beyblade G Revolution was a game I actually owned when I had a physical gameboy advance, and it's nice to know it feels just as... interesting now, as it felt back then. Only difference is now I'm an adult and am patient enough to get through the game. So let's rip it up at the speed of sound.
Graphics - 5
This was a weak rip. The graphics are subpar, even for a gameboy advance game. They aren't exactly the worst, but they could have been a lot better for the little amount of graphics they could have made better. The beyblades looked lifeless, and the overworld looked a little off. So not only is this for graphics, but also for level design. The game just doesn't look good as a whole.
Sound - 7
Have you ever listened to the Beyblade theme? If not, please stop reading this and listen to this. In the game it appears as a snippet from the instrumental version. When I played the game it brought back a little nostalgia from when I used to watch the show.
Addictiveness - 3
Admittedly at first the game is fun. But the game gets so bogged down with filler, you'll begin to wonder when the game is finally over. I wouldn't blame most people quitting near the end thinking the game isn't actually going to end. It does, but it's really not worth seeing anyway. Throughout the entire game I was disinterested, and a late night cram session is what it took to muster up finishing the game.
Story - 4
It started with pieces of a story. Then it became a tournament fighter with very little story aside from "I can't do this." "Yes you can." "OK." dialougue. The story writing was pathetic, especially since it wasn't like they needed a whole ton of story to begin with. I almost think I would have prefered not having these pieces of a story never truly implemented.
Depth - 7
Again admittedly, there are a good amount of things to do. Get every beyblade, get every part, customize each beyblade... tons of options. It doesn't make up for the rest of the game, but I like customization. I wish they did more with it actually, but in the game, this was the top quality aside from maybe the little sound it provided.
Difficulty - 1
Hard to believe, but if you beat it you will agree with me. The game is one difficulty, it never changes. If you beat the first bey battle in the game, you will beat the last. You really should never lose unless you are using Daichi or Kenny, and even then their battles are just as easy.
Overall - 5
This game isn't very good, nor is it very challenging, but it's a beyblade game, so what are you going to do? Recognizable characters and the same 10 seconds from the song will be enough to tide some people. It won't for others. If you are looking for a game worth putting time into, it won't be this one. You can beat this game in one sitting if so inclined, but I doubt you are.
