Bloody Roar 4 for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
Bloody Roar 4 continues the Bloody Roar series of fighting games; players can transform into "hyper-beasts" to gain additional powers and fighting moves. Fourteen characters return from earlier incarnations of Bloody Roar games, and three new characters join them.

Nine gameplay modes give users a variety of options.
