? In recent years the Wii has seen a good amount of fighting games, all of which vary considerably in quality; some atrocities, some gems. Here is list of the top five games that fall into the latter category. #5: Guilty Gear XX Accent Core The Guilty Gear series is well known for it's reckless, twitch-based 2D fighting action. Though the game's anime-style characters can be over-the-top in appearance and nature, the goofiness only adds to the enjoyment. Just be sure to hook up a Gamecube or Classic controller. The action is too frantic and fast-paced to be handled with waggle without injuring yourself. #4: Naruto: Clash of Ninja: Revolution 2 The Naruto: Clash of Ninja franchise originated on the Gamecube but has quickly earned a place on Nintendo's new console, the Wii. The sequel to Naruto's initial quest on the Wii acts as more of an expansion than an entirely new game. Revolution 2 features an expansive, fairly balanced character roster, new forms and abilities, new stages, and an all-new story mode. The ability to use hand signs to build up energy without even attacking, as well as being able to wrap a exploding spell scroll around a kunai knife before throwing it (resulting in a successful "letter bomb") are very welcome additions. Some may argue, however, that these attracks should've never been implemented. In any case, it's certainly a worthy installment in the series, and deserves to be played, especially if one has missed out on the first, and even more so if one is a fan of Naruto. #3: Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Above all else, Mortal Kombat is so well known because of it's extremely violent battles. The aftermath of every fight is a bloody, gory mess. Not only that, but the kills invoked at the end of each match often involve dismemberment, decapitation, and other such mutilation techniques. In a way, Armageddon serves as a definitive installment. It's a collection of nearly everything fans have experienced before. The character roster boasts over 60 playable characters, most all recycled from Mortal Kombat games over the years. With online-multiplayer and a vast amount of content make this a worthy fighting game, and an especially good chance for those who have never played a Mortal Kombat game up until now. #2: DragonBall Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 The latest and best Tenkaichi game also happens to be one of the best fighting games on the Wii has to offer. The reason for this becomes clear when you understand the nature of the gameplay. The multiplayer battles are splitscreen. Each player maneuvers his character over the open landscape, flying, swimming, and blasting their way into and through each other. There are dozens upon dozens of powerful techniques, many unique to certain particular characters, which is quite a feat when you see that are almost 200 playable fighters. The 3-dimensional style of the open-stage battles make this the future of fighting. There are so many things to do and places to be in each stage, (not to mention the amount of characters you can play) it's highly improbable for the exact same thing to happen twice. Talk about replayability! 1#: Super Smash Bros. Brawl Some have called Smash Bros. a button-masher's game. But the truth is far from that. Smash Bros. has one of the deepest combat systems in any fighting game yet. The latest game in the series, Brawl, takes the fight to an entirely new level with "Final Smash". Each character has one ultimate attack which can be activated by breaking the "Smash Ball" when it floats onstage. Brawl could be compared to Guilty Gear,yet with slightly more realistic visual effects and attacks, it eclipses all comparisons. However, what makes Smash Bros. so unique is it's fighters, which are based on renowned videogame characters. Only in a fighting game like Brawl can you see characters like Sonic the Hedgehog, Snake from Metal Gear Solid, Ike from Fire Emblem, and Mario himself all fight head-to-head. With more characters, stages, and items than ever before, this is a fighting game that a ture gamer should not miss.
