Top Fighting Games of 2010
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top fighting games of 2010, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
With Capcom's Street Fighter IV kick-starting a fighting renaissance, tripe such as this only serves to drag the genre back into the dark ages. Avoid.
The Deadliest Warrior only costs 800 Microsoft points, but you could definitely spend them on something better.
It might be fun for an hour or so –the combined efforts of Danny Trejo and a pumping soundtrack do wonders in getting the adrenaline flowing – but there's no real lasting appeal here.
The Simpsons Arcade is good fun, but it's short-lived in the extreme. While £2.99 might not seem much, other App Store games offer far better value for money.
A game clinging onto the previous generation instead of embracing what is possible with current hardware.
TvC is a lot of fun, albeit in a throwaway manor. The game's fighting system is deep, and its roster well balanced - pretty much every character is viable, which is one hell of an achievement.
When it comes to learning everything in BlazBlue to play it competently, well, the game is going to make you its bitch.
Scott Pilgrim stands out as a strong game in its own right. It’s an impressive little throwback that functions as a love-letter to early games culture, a treat for a nostalgic gamer demographic.
Super is an essential purchase. It is the best fighting game available on this generation of games consoles, and further reinforces Capcom's dominance of the fighting game genre.
BlazBlue will teach you things, broaden your horizons, and give you a damn good time; think of it as the Mrs Robinson to your brawling Benjamin Braddock.
