Eighting may well be the most prolific fighting game developer of the last decade, if not all time. This title, based on the quintessential sentai television meta-series, and produced for the tenth anniversary of it's Heisei-era reboot, is the first in a series half a dozen strong. Eighting made as many Kamen Rider games as Capcom did Street Fighter II revisions!

Not to say this one's any good -- it's a totally-phoned-in, by-the-numbers licensed fighting game. It isn't egregiously bad like, say, Castlevania Judgment, but it's nowhere near the level of their games for Capcom like MVC3 or even Kenichi. Might hold some interest for fans of the show, as it brings together the heroes of nine different series, but I've never seen so much as a full episode so any fan service flies straight over my head.
