Top Fighting Games of 2011
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top fighting games of 2011, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
Kung Fu Live is equivalent to trying to make some kind of home-made green-screen production in your garage. It's a disaster.
Ubisoft's Kinect game means well, and will certainly appeal to younger gamers, but its execution is sadly what we've come to expect from Kinect titles - a bit too messy.
Tekken Hybrid is much too thin on content to possibly justify any part of its price tag.
WWE 12 is certainly bigger, but whether it's badder and better is debatable.
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.
It's easier to recommend this as a rental than as a full-price release, but if you're yearning for the heady days of Hulkamania, All Stars may provide a welcome hit of nostalgia.
Is it better than Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition? The control set up certainly better lends itself to a handheld, as the nature of the move-set makes DOA a less awkward experience.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a gorgeous fighter with vast depth, but it slightly lacks the tightness and coherence that made Street Fighter 4 such an instant classic.
The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a more inclusive and competent game than its already accomplished predecessor.
Mortal Kombat feels like the return of an old friend - a thoroughly unhinged friend, but one we're delighted to have back.
