Toribash is an unusual combat game where your role is simply to make 3D figures smash the hell out of each other.

Toribash features a range of fighting styles including Sumo, Kick Boxing and Judo. The graphics are in the form of vectored 3D characters, the gameplay is extremely limited and the controls are frustrating but Toribash can be fun once you get the hang of it. 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 smash the bits out of the computer opponent. Note that because of this, Toribash may not be a game suitable for kids as heads and limbs break off with alarming regularity and blood runs freely although it's not exactly shocking because of the poor graphics. The impressive aspect of Toribash is the realistic fluid movements of the characters. However, that's about the only thing that impresses.

In this demo version, you can only perform limited moves plus you can't earn belts but for $20, you can upgrade to the full version. The overall gameplay would be enhanced significantly if the characters were at least given names or personalities, the scenarios a bit more imaginative and if there were some kind of competition mode.

Toribash is fine if you just want to smash-up some limbs but the gameplay is awkward, limited and not something that will have you coming back for more.
