All Kamen Rider - Rider Generation Impressions

Until Kabuto Henshin! Now it may not look right for a grown man to be watching a kids show of a Grasshopper man fighting costumed badguys but it's what makes part of the world go round. I recently got All kamen Rider - Rider Generation for the Nintendo DS and if you're a Kamen Rider fan or love super hero cross-overs then maybe you should check this game out.

Rider Generation is a simple beat 'em' up action game similar to Double Dragon or Streets of Rage but instead of controlling unrelated brothers or a a bunch of ex-cops you control bug-themed super heroes called Kamen Riders. The roster comprises of every main Kamen Rider hero from every show up until Kamen Rider 000. You can choose 2 Riders, with the 1st being your controlled character and the 2nd being an AI controlled character as you punch, slash, shoot and Rider kick your way through waves of bad guys. It's a simple concept with some cute little sprites to go along with it.

I haven't gotten far in the game but it looks like something I will enjoy playing for a bit and I haven't found any use of the touchscreen yet. I also haven't found an option to switch control between you and your partner either. However these are just things that I might have missed since I can't read any Japanese.
