Genre Awards: Best Fighting Game of 2006

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 box art

DBZ: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 - PS2 / Wii

Gone are the bland 2D fighting environments of previous DBZ games, replaced in favor of 3D roaming which more represented the nature of the anime series loved by millions. Tenkaichi 2 isn't perfect, but it's infinitely more playable on the PS2 than on the Wii in our opinion, due to the fact that the Wii-mote just doesn't cut it.

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja - PS2

I'd never watched a Naruto show in my life, but that didn't stop me from enjoying this eclectic and frenetic fighting game. The fast-paced fisticuffs, multi-tiered levels and wild encounters with characters from the popular anime sealed the deal for Naruto fans of all ages when it was released in summer 2006.

Tekken: Dark Resurrection review

Tekken: Dark Resurrection - PSP

Namco Bandai blew everyone away with their phenomenal PSP-based fists of fury. Tekken: DR not only looked like a million bucks, but it actually played like it too. Battles could be played alone or ad-hoc which only sweetened the Tekken experience. The PSP needed some gargantuan-sized mega hits this year and trust us when we tell you, Tekken: Dark Resurrection was definitely one of 'em.

God Hand - PS2

One of the strangest and hardest fighting games we've ever played. God Hand is the perfect blend of fighting, challenge and good ol' insanity. You have the hand of God fused into your limb and you use it to punch out bad guys. Sounds like some diety was having a bad day and needed to get out his frustrations. You might get a tad over-heated yourself when you face off against some of the games later villains. Tough stuff. Hardcore gamers need only apply.
