Fatal Fury Special Review by: jlhFatal Fury special, SEGA CD
Fatal Fury Special edition on the SEGA cd system is kind of a let down compared to the other Fatal Fury series. It does however incorporate a different battle field, rather then just a typical back and forth, this game lets you move your character up and down as well as diagonal to battle your enemy. Pretty much the same controls as any other fighting game, holding back blocks enemy attacks, pressing back twice makes your character dash back ( no dash forward ). Although personally I found that it is hard to figure out special attacks.
This game boasts six levels of difficulty, beginner,easy,normal,hard,expert, and mvs( arcade difficulty). With sixteen characters to choose from, each with their own style is one of the few strong points of the game. Here is a short list of fighters to choose from.
and many more!
Overall: 7.5 ( best thing going for this game is the graphics and a good selection of fighters to choose from).
Graphics: 8 ( really the highest score I gave the game in all the categories, some boards are better then others providing animation in the backgrounds, well detailed and real nice colours).
Sound: 7 ( okay music and some voice effects but nothing special)
Story: 7 ( It is a fighting game, the end).
Depth: 7 ( really with sixteen characters the score should be higher but difficulty in using the specials are a real let down).
Difficulty: 9 ( okay usually when I rate a game this high it is a good thing but with this game a 9 means bad, sometimes slow action and difficulty when trying to use the specials sometimes results in jumping or rolling across the board).
Reviewers note: I made this review short and sweet because really it is nothing to brag about, their are better versions out there to play.
