Fighting games and I have this love-hate relationship. I love to play them, but they hate me for some reason. This game brings back memories of playing Street Fighter
back during the SNES era. The controls are good, the graphics are great in that throw-back-retro style, and the music even has the perfect retro feel to it.
There are a total of eight fighters to chose from, with your typical unique play styles for each character. The demo limits you to four characters; if you need to try-before-you-buy, just keep that in mind.
I had some great fun playing this game, which is saying a lot for the balance and simplicity of the gameplay. Some modern fighters are way too complex for me to grasp these days, but I definitely enjoyed the retro-throwback this title offers. And, if that itch is something you have been yearning to scratch, you can remedy that for as little as 80 MSP
