Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer


Well the first thing i like about this game is the intro, sort of a anime style intro that shows off all the characters. When you get to the player select screen you'll see 10 selectable characters, 8 men and 2 women. (Both women being of course scantily clad) I don't know if theres any hidden characters, I doubt there are. The controls are exactly the same as the KOF series, with A being weak punch, B being weak kick etc. I would say the only differences between VF Gowcaizer and KOF '94 would be that KOF '94 has teams and better graphics.

After I picked the female fighter Karin, (Couldn't resist.) it let me choose my opponent, I chose to fight Gowcaizer himself. His level looks like a city after the apocalypse had happened, you can see a city skyline in the background during sunset. The city and where you are is between a lake of some sort, and there are peices of buildings in the lake. The default arcade setting for the game has the difficulty level set at 4, I'm pretty sure this is standard with all neo geo games, but was surprised to find the computer controlled opponent, on the first level beat me. And I can usually beat the first opponent fairly easily. He would attack me with cheap moves, countering every move I tried on him. While fighting I noticed the players didn't move as fluidly as in the KOF series, they were a little chunky, but there was no noticable slow down.

The sound in this game is average, with the intro movie sounds being the best overall. Most of the speech is in Japanese, and the sounds of punching and kicking were no different than those from the Power Rangers. Each player has their own background music, with most of it being below average quality and sometimes annoying.

As for the levels themselves, they were lacking in major details, but overall did the job fine. My favorite levels would be Shaia's, its a dance club with a huge monitor in the background that shows a anime Shaia in different poses, she is wearing very revealing clothes. My other favorite level is Stinger's, I guess its set on a stage at a concert, theres some sort of devil looking statue in the background with his hands outstretched, with two angels or something at his sides, and standing on the devils hands are two guitarists, and in the middle of them is a drummer. Its pretty cool looking, and has background music thats barely passable for rock music.

On a lighter note, after you or your opponent beats the other twice they have an ending sequence where it shows the loser lying on the ground and the winner up front, and it spells out text at the bottom, all of which was translated and came out pretty funny in english. Exactly like the OverClocked Comic "SNK-glish".

Overall I would say this is a game that technos rushed out to make a few extra dollars, definetely not worth your time. Stick with the KOF series, the Fatal Fury Series, or the Samurai Showdown series. Those are much better fighting games. But if your into anime style intros and a couple of scantily clad females, then you could give it a go.

I suggest you try one of these series, they are all better:

- Fatal Fury
- King of Fighters
-Samurai Shodown
