Kamen Rider: Genealogy of Justice (仮面ライダー正義の系譜 Kamen Raidā Seigi no Keifu) is a Bandai and Eighting 3D Adventure/Fighting crossover game for the Playstation 2. It features Kamen Riders 1, 2, V3, Black, and Agito as the main protagonists. 
The square and circle buttons are respectively used for punching and kicking, with the X button used to perform jumps. The triangle button is used to interact with the environment, with L2 and R2 are used to evade by also moving analog stick. The player can also do damage when enemies surround you by using R1 button and pressing square or circle. Finishers can only be used in Rider Form and when there is an enemy on screen. If your energy gauge is depleted you will revert to human form; one can also manually transform back by pressing L1 and R1 simultaneously.
The game utilizes a "Resident Evil" style format of running around in a set environment (a power-plant/Shocker's base), where the player must traverse the landscape, while picking up necessary items to open locked doors and progress through the stage. Throughout the adventure, the player will be pestered by many recognizable combatmen, and will have to defeat some of them in order to advance.
Also included in the game are driving areas, usually beginning with the Rider being chased by Shocker's motorcyclists while obstacles appear from before the Rider that the player must dodge accordingly. This scene features the camera facing the Rider head on, so the obstacles will appear in front of the Rider, making it tricky to dodge.
The second area involves the Rider dodging various stationary traps, usually spikes or mines, in a traditional motorcycle game style, where the camera is viewing behind the Rider. Also included here is Kamen Rider 1's "mini game" of smashing into Red Shocker Combatmen, which utilizes the same format, though now the Rider can attack via pressing the square button to spin the Cyclone around.
Each Kamen Rider can execute a select set of finishers based on an energy gauge's level, with Level 3 finishers being the strongest and Level 1 being standard finishers.

- Shocker (Gel Shocker)
- Four Commanders
- Shocker Combatmen
- Shocker Scientists
- Spider Man
- Earthworm Man
- Agito was called Kamen Rider by Semiminga and Shouichi was confused about being called a 'Kamen Rider'. This is most likely because most Heisei Riders are often referred to by their real name or a simplified form of their hero name. (ex. Kuuga instead of Kamen Rider Kuuga)
- However, he and Kamen Rider Gills later learn about the origins of the term.
- This situation would later appear in Kamen Rider Fourze the Movie: Everyone, Space is Here! and the Kamen Rider Wizard epilogue episode Neverending Story, where the then new Kamen Riders Wizard and Gaim respectively were called a Kamen Rider and asked their predecessors what a Kamen Rider was.
- Although Kamen Rider 1 represents the 1971 timeline, he is temporarily replaced by Kamen Rider 2 following Hongo's incapacitation. Gameplay-wise, the two Riders are identical in attacks. After control of Kamen Rider 1 is resumed, Rider 2 is unplayable for the remainder of the game. After beating the game once, Rider 1 and 2's original costumes are made selectable at the start of a new game. Despite the fact this changes Rider 1's belt color to white, the belt will still appear red when worn by Hongo.
- As to whether or not this game is canon is debated among fans as it features 4 different Rider Series in a timeline and the present day takes place after the events of Kamen Rider Agito (2001).
- Those who pre-ordered the game when it was released received a limited edition Kamen Rider 1 metal wristwatch, modeled on the Typhoon belt.
