Fatal Fury Special
Reviewed by Dyson Turner
Fatal Fury Special was a surprisingly good game, it might
not have been the best graphically or sound wise, but it had
a nice list of characters and some other features as well.
Fatal Fury fans take note because this is a game you won't
want to miss!
Well compared to the arcade and other versions of this game
these graphics pale in comparison. You can compare it to
other hand held games and this one is leaps and bounds over
the competition. The backgrounds are on the plain side but
they are pretty good though. The sprite size is nice and
large and everybody is distinguishable.
The sound department is pretty good as well. Even though you
don't get character voices like Mai Shiranui and Terry
Bogard, but you get some pretty good background music and
Sound FX. I particularly like the main theme music. The
sound FX was done well too, and they come off rather
Game Play 8.0/10
This game was for 1 or 2 players. You had 9 characters to
choose from including, Terry and Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi,
Mai Shiranui, Tung fu Rue, Duck King, Billy Kane and geese
Howard. All new to the game is Ryo Sakazaki, from Art of
Fighting which is a great feature. Another is all the
character combos from the arcades and other versions made
the transport, also every mode made it too, a huge plus for
the Game Gear. The difficulty was adjustable but most of the
time the game was very easy because you always could use
cheap moves. There weren't any passwords or save features.
This is a very good game. If anybody owns a Game Gear and
they want a well rounded fighting game on the go then this
is definitely for them. Better Backgrounds and sounds are
the only thing marring this game but other than that the
game pretty good. It's the best Fighting game for any hand
held system. If you are a Fatal Fury fan then you won't want
to miss this opportunity.
