Toribash is an unusual combat game where your role is simply to make 3D figures smash the hell out of each other. The game features a range of fighting styles including Sumo, Kick Boxing, and Judo. The graphics are in the form of vectored 3D characters, and the gameplay is extremely limited. Despite the frustrating controls, Toribash can be fun once you get the hang of it. However, it may not be suitable for kids due to the graphic violence.
In Toribash, you have to click on a section of your fighter's body and then select the action you want to perform using the mouse. The character will then immediately spring into life and engage in combat with the computer opponent. Heads and limbs break off with alarming regularity, and blood runs freely, although the poor graphics make it less shocking. The impressive aspect of Toribash is the realistic fluid movements of the characters. However, the game lacks depth and fails to provide names or personalities for the characters, imaginative scenarios, or any kind of competition mode.
