Without knowing anything about it, "Slice, Dice and Rice" sounds like it would be cringingly tone-deaf in terms of clichéd "kung-fu" ethnic stereotypes.

@hassun: I've been wanting Koei/KoeiTecmo/Tecmo/Koei/whoever to make a new one like this, or at least just make an HD remix of this one, or hell, just port it somewhere. Like most/all the PS2 Warriorseses are on PS3 right now but not this one?

With how they were talking how Slice, Dice, and Rice felt better as a one-hit fighting game than Bashido Blade, I'm surprised they ranked it so much lower.

I was very confused by the NSW abbreviation, that means New South Wales more than Nintendo Switch to me

Dude, Lu Bu is like 12 feet tall, I swear to god. When he rolls up on his horse, who is a monster, he blots out the sun. You know it's him, from the feeling of dread that consumes you.

The art style in Slice, Dice and Rice is really awful, and it's not doing the bland character designs any favours.

Ben should get to wear Jeff's coat while he is out so he can take his energy from it to become a true scientist

The Dynasty Warriors music is wild, so incongruous with the setting and characters. It makes it feel like a dynasty warriors cosplay fighting game in early 90's Japan.

There's something very... European about Slice, Dice, and Rice.

Jeff's contributions to science are esteemed, but I also like the very chill vibe of the Jason & Ben installments of this series.

The soundtrack for that Dynasty Warriors game seems to be the only redeeming quality in that game. It be very good.

Although Aquaman traditionally uses a trident, in 2006 DC did in fact introduce a sword-wielding Aquaman.

I loved the Dynasty Warriors fighting game. I count it among the many, many games on this list that I played and enjoyed more than TMNT. As somebody who actually really likes the TMNT franchise, I will never understand why they ranked that fighting game so highly.

@lonerubberducky: This kinda threw me too. It looks nicer than Bushido Blade and I'm in agreement that 2D works better for the one-hit style of combat. Not necessarily surprised they put it lower on the list in the end, but I was surprised how much lower down it ended up.
