Final fight Arcade/Street fighter 89 review
Alright Final fight. For most of you that didn't know Final fight was originally intended to be A squeal to street fighter 2 Called Street fighter 89 It would feature 3 characters Which is Guy ,Cody, And The Retired Pro wrestler Mike Hagger Who is mayor of Metro City . But because the Game Felt and Played so Differently than Street fighter 2 Cap com changed it from Being Street fighter 89 And a squeal to Street fighter 2 to the game to its own game franchise Called Final fight . Pretty much The Game Felt More true to a beat em up game. Then rather 1 on 1 fighting environment .Regardless the game ended up being 1 of the most successful games that cap com had. It also brought many changes and new tunes that would be in later on street fighter games. They would even add The final fight characters And Some Street fighter 2 characters in Final fight and The Street fighter games in an attempt to cross them over. Enter the Final Fight Arcade/Street Fighter 89 review.
Plot The Retired Pro wrestler from Saturday night slam.masters video game Mike Hagger Got elected the new mayor of A new place Called Metro city .Metro city was a crime capital that suffered from Violence and Death for many years. As the Problem of the violence and chaos Was the huge gang Known as the Mad gear which controls all the major crimes metro city. When They had found out Mike hagger Was planning to get rid of them they quickly took action of this case and to try and make Mike hagger the new mayor under their control.Mike hagger had a daughter By the name of Jessica. So 1 night or day later The Mad Gear took and Kidnapped Jessica so they decided To Call up Mayor Mike Hagger . And offer a deal with him. Mike hagger Said hello Mr Hagger here. Mad gear went He he Mr Hagger so pleased to meet your aquiteance I believe you know who I am. wait don't hang up.we Have a little business proclamation ... your daughter! For your cooperation. Mike hagger responded what who is this wheres Jessica. Mad gear said not so fast mike turn on your tv .So mike hagger turned on his tv responded in rage to what he saw . He cussed at them and said what have you done to Jessica.
the mad gear responded nothing yet but we enjoy the opportunity listen to reason why make your job more difficult just let us do as we please just like the mayor before you did. So guy and Cody found out and decided rescue Jessica. So the main plot of final fight is to defeat the mad gear in 5 different levels and rescue Jessica.
Graphics Looking at this classic from the ages Its good old fashion 2d that you can Accept All sprites look great And very well detailed They look nicely done. Stages also Look like they had gotten drunked Flamed banished and deserted Which is a great example of What mad gear has done to metro city . Graphics gets a 10 this is excellent looking graphics for the time being it was released and the stages look very true and follow up very well with what criminal stuff and violence has Happened to metro city
Sound is another great example of just how freaking billy bad butt this game is. There is a good variety of sound effects That happen when you punch people do a special move. And other stuff in there.Soundtrack This soundtrack is another great dark and bass like theme and plus it shows What the cps system is capable of doing when having a dark theme in t There are a lot of songs that play when you are in the stages. And all have a good dark theme and tune to it as if the Mad gear are lurking in the shadows waiting to kill u. Cap com even remade or took some of the soundtrack. And used it for the newer street fighter games . Re lento,s street fighter alpha 2 theme is an example of how cap com remade a song off of this game They took and remixed the bay area theme for Re lento in street fighter alpha 2. Sound gets a 10 it has a nice dark soundtrack and a variety of sound effects infact they took some songs and remixed in the later street fighter games.
Addictiveness final fight has been addicting over the many years its been around for the main challenge of the game makes it fun and with the nice soundtrack really makes this game worth while. Addictiveness gets a 7 this would be something I would probably play casually though.
Story Explained it in plot this is a nice storyline I will rate it a 7
Depth This game offers a bunch of enemies on screen about 20 enemies appear at once then 20 more appear. It really makes the game keep its touch after all its years. Even though theres only 5 levels there filled with a lot of enemies that will keep you pretty busy for about a few hours So Depth would get a 6 in my case.
Difficulty 8 the main challenge of the enemies and bosses are strong fast and pretty powerful. Then again like the intro plot Says Mad gear is a huge gang So what could you expect after reading that in the intro . The controls work fine you use only 3 buttons for the game main attacks again they are very responsive.
Overall This may had not been what cap com had expected for their Squeal to street fighter 2 but it was totally a successful game ratings 9.2 Good visuals nice dark music. Hard game play but it does keep the game fun so its acceptable Nice ending Music ended up getting remixed in street fighter alpha 2 and still continues to be remixed now that's it for this review
