Final Breakdown


As it stands, the fighting engine isn't too bad, but it doesn't live up to its original counterpart in the arcades.


Poorly converted, there's just not nearly the impact effect of the major attacks, nor the fun, of executing the large moves or helpers when doing so will slow the PSX to a crawl trying to draw it all.

Sound and Music:

While the samples were obviously converted and lost some of their luster, they are bearable if not stunning.

Multiplayer: N/A

One-on-one as always, but since it's a console game no problem there. A bit of a negative for the laughable implementation of an arcade-similar mode.

AI and Difficulty:

The holes in the AI are easily exploited, and the AI in general is unpredictable but not in a good way.

Controls and Interface:

The controls don't get in the way, but could easily have been used for a lot more than they were.


Face it, players would be far happier dumping quarters into an arcade machine than playing this conversion.
