Bounty Battle starts off strong but quickly beats itself into submission. Spanning more than a dozen different indie game franchises, a favorite is sure to be amongst the mix for you. Really, the selection is quite impressive, but a good roster can’t save a less than stellar game.
The gameplay is too convoluted with how simple it is and the fighting just doesn’t feel good when you have the controller in your hands. With only local versus modes and a subpar tournament mode on board, the replay value is very low.
Bounty Battle appeals to the indie game lover with its expansive roster, but any half-interested fighting game player would tell you to stay away. A lack of modes and, more importantly, much fun in the gameplay department mean even the allure of the character list isn’t enough to save this title.
