Martial Arts: Capoeira reviews and comments

Despite the criticisms, I wanted to try this game first hand. I Wanted To give him a chance. And I'm afraid I've finished pissing against the wind. I Had hopes that it would be something similar to the Tekken of the arcade. I Always liked the character of Capoeira and wanted to find here the key combination for the perfect combo. But it's all nonsense. It will Not be me who values a game just for the graphic aspect, but in this case... I would Bet that the graphics of that recreation were better than those found in this title. Buttons Cannot be customized. And obviously there is no compatibility with a pad. Although we could always go to some external program, it doesn't deserve the effort. The combinations of keys and movements are coarse. In fact, I could not finish the tutorial because the buttons do not respond to make a specific combo. The battles are extremely short. 5 Mamporros bad Dice and our character will be weeping on the floor. Stay away from this garbage.

Short Review: Pros: Original, albeit limited. Career Mode. Cons: Configuration Options almost null. Cannot change keys... Few game modes. Mediocre Graphics and music. Rating: 2/10 Fun Factor: 2/5-Only recommended for fighting games entertaining. Opinion: Martial Arts: Capoeira is an interesting game of fights, I say interesting because it focuses on a style that although has been seen in many other games, is the first time I see that explotasen it to depth. And If, I mean Capoeira, that Brazilian martial art in which fighters fight what if they were dancing. While the game is something original, has many things against it, to start it has almost no configuration option, there is no way to configure basic things like the resolution and more terrible, even that there is no way to customize the keys that are used... As for game mode, I found him entertained even with his failures. To begin with is noticeable that there is no bar of life, but rather we have a kind of bar of tension, the strategy of game revolves around not to exhaust it (which means that we are screwed). In itself, the combat system is similar to the first Tekken (although not so elaborate) with elements of Street Fighter, as I mentioned, this (along with the Career mode) are I create the strengths of the game. Although graphically not outstanding, because the characters are not well defined, the animations are fluent, in general I liked the design of the characters, the music is acceptable. This game, with a little more work, could have been a very decent fighting game. Unfortunately a mediocre port does not happen.
