Best Fighting Games of 2011
Here is the list of best fighting games of 2011. With the introduction of new mechanics and different play styles in the head to best fighting games of the 2011 season, it can clearly be said that there is no game that can be called “easy competetion”. Every game brings its own different style of epic “pwnage”. With different seasonings and additions to their overall franchises, the best fighting games of 2011 offer a crazy substantial amount of flexibility, innovation as well as eye candy. Furthermore allowing the users much more freedom in how they can adapt to their own play styles or how to form a rendition in it. Let’s take a look at which games top the list in the 2011 run for best fighting games.
Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
The Marvel vs Capcom series has always been a pillar of hours of entertainment value for every kind of head to head gamer. Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds has been a game long awaited and coveted by the general audience of fighting games. It offers an extremely polished appearance with its flashy super power and crazy long hit combos. The game does not fail to add entertainment value into its presentation. However it does not have the advanced perserverence that a fighting game must come along with. Super powers that can be executed by pressing a few measly buttons in a very simple sequence starts getting boring after a couple of fights. This game is not for the heavily enthusiastic fighting gamer, the mechanics of using low kicks and middle punches to set off an opponents ryhtym is completely void in this game. However it makes up for that with its amazing visuals and moments that make you want to scream HELL YEA! EAT THAT! Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is certainly a game worth playing, just make sure not to get frustrated when you stop blocking for even a second.
King of Fighters 2011:
The King of Fighters series of SNK has always been flying around the top of the perch for a very long time. A very innovative and mind boggling game when it comes to its mechanics and rotations. Every move in this game is counterable in some way or another, no character is insanely over powered, and adapting to different playstyles makes a player unique from others. However, King of Fighters 2011 has changed its mechanics resembling something like that of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. The same characters that we love and adore are still there such as Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
Street Fighter has always been molded by Capcom to be a very perplexing game. How sometimes the usage of a very low damaging effect can nullify the effects of a high damage dealing attack. Sitting down and pressing a low punch can cancel out ultimate powers with tremendous ease. However the window for such a possibility to arise is very minimal. Highly experienced players have always astounded others as to how such game play is possible. The Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is yet another example of this. With two new characters being added to the roster, Yun and Yang, this game is a must play for all Street Fighter lovers. Don’t worry the hadouken and shoryuken spammers can all be put to waste with a simple EX attack. Thank you Capcom for making that happen.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (Japanese Arcade release and Playstation 3 release in Nov. 2011)
Tekken has been a very popular game amongst fighting games over the era of head to head games. Without any flashy finishing moves and crazy long power ups, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is not a game for those looking for humongous explosions and health bars depleting in mere seconds. The game is polished beyond belief and looks great in the visuals department. The only disappointing factor with the Tekken series has been the very disconnected story line.
Mortal Kombat 9:
The best fighting game of 2011 is Mortal Kombat 9. Mortal Kombat has been well known for its gruesome and down right “in your face” game play. Smashing skulls, breaking spines, and severing heads like no tomorrow. Yet the insane amounts of brutality does not mean that there is no technicality to the game. Mortal Kombat 9 is a vivid example of how game offers maximum amounts of gore as well as a professional feel to the game. With the introduction of such things as the X-Ray attacks, Mortal Kombat 9 has become a great installment to Midways portofolio. However one thing that has always bothered us is how after a fight ends, even the victor himself looks like nothing more then a zombie. Sure we all love gore Midway, but there always comes a time when too much is simply too much. Though that does not take away the fact that Mortal Kombat has now innovated itself to be a professionally advanced game as well a treat for the eyes.
