Power Rangers Super Megaforce (3DS) Review

“Japan’s Super Sentai television has a heart of flamboyancy. Suited actors flop in earnest, miniature buildings are tackled, and punctual martial arts fill space until mammoth robots with equally mammoth swords can burst into flames to scorch the latest opposition. Only the inherent goofiness can supersede the energy invested into the whiz-bang visual splendor.

That is arguably why Power Rangers video games, despite a number of clean 16-bit brawlers, never found their cut of the Ninja Turtle beat-em-up character market. Super Megaforce is only the latest to falter for the same reason. It’s a complicated problem actually, whether the hokey Americanization of Japanese TV elicits such a feeling or otherwise. The builds, the cameras, the editing; it’s all dynamically specific in tonalities and proud of its international weirdness.”
