If a TV show ever deserved a video game it is Spike’s TV’s Deadliest Warrior. The show takes history’s deadliest warriors and makes them fight each other. No, not literally because time machines haven’t been invented yet, sadly. But maybe time machines have been invented and they are disguised as video games. That would explain the success behind this game’s launch. Although the game is launching today October 5th on the PSN, it has launched before. Not in an alternate reality, but on XBOX live.
The game can be downloaded for $9.99 and those are US dollars for the untrained eye. This game deserves to be given the opportunity to compete on shelves. Its capacity to excite a gamer’s imagination is unquestionable. It should be alongside games like Tekken and Street Fighter. I believe that taking different warriors and setting them up to fight is the bread and butter of fantasies. It is the heart of MMA. This game deserves a bigger budget. But, we will have to settle for downloadable content in 2011.
