Strive to earn the right to call yourself…the most powerful Capoeira fighter in the World! Martial Arts: Capoeira, is based on Capoeira, a Brazilian martial arts. Capoeira is a Brazilian fight-dance, game, and martial art created by enslaved Africans during the 16th Century.

This game sucks but I enjoyed it. Heads up there is no controler support and the key bindings r "W A S D" to move and the action buttons r "H J B N and SPACE" It takes a little getting used to. I would only recommend getting this game when it's on sale and if u like martial arts or capoeira cause the reality is there isn't much appeal to the game.

I cannot reccomend this game. The controls are shoddy, the fights are short and pointless and I find the entire game to be an insult to Capoeira. I would understand if the game was in PreAlpha, but it has been around for about 2 years before coming to Steam so the windo for improving it has been open for a long time. The only reason I can see for this pile of rubbish being released is to coincide with the world cup being held in Brazil. double thumbs down from a very disappointed fan of Capoeira

First off I actually like the game and enjoy playing, the fighting itself is a bit different from most games like this as in it is more strategy than button mashing. You have no health rather it is it like a tug o' war and you need to balance not getting tired.

The reason for the the thumbs down is the lack of any graphic options even basic resolution. There is also no key remapping or controller support.

Waste of 10 Euro's I had. The game lags, there are already zero to no options, and then the music options reverse now and then, blowing my ears out.
Next to that, I was doing career and boom, after three matches my character just stood there.... doing nothing, while the other person was trying to hit me... which did not happen. After a few minutes I quit playing story mode, and then I noticed that when I do the tutorial, you learn instead of 5 techniques, 3 techniques at the basic technique tutorial... and then it suddenly stops and I get back in the main menu with the settings again on full, once again blowing my ears out. Just... bad for my 10 euro's.

Technically, the game looks like a PS2 game, with a 4:3 aspect ratio and no options whatsoever.

Maybe the intention is good but... no. The game is not fun. People don't play a game which isn't fun.
