This is a classic fighting SNES game that started out in arcades and was very popular there so when ported to the SNES it did very well.
You pick a character, go from country to country fighting other characters, for what reason? I guess to show that you’re the strongest fighter in the world!
The Gameplay is pretty great, The characters for the most part are pretty varied, besides the obvious Ken & Ryu. Of course Ryu is better, but they’re pretty similar. Every character has their strengths and weaknesses. Dhalsim’s limbs stretch to unbelievable lengths, E.Honda is big and fat and can move his hand very fast, Guile can jump high, Blanka is a monster that can make himself be electrical. I’ve been playing this game for years and it is still a challenge to me. The multiplayer in this game is great, your friends getting mad at you for continuously doing the same move is a great feeling, but there’s always a way around it so they should stop complaining.
The graphics are fairly good for a super nes game, the close up’s on the characters faces are very detailed and when in battle every thing is pretty smooth, you get the idea of what every move is supposed to be. Some of the close ups of the faces when the character was beaten are pretty hilarious.
The sound can be pretty annoying in this game, there’s never any changes in the noises when a move is executed, honestly these characters probably have around 5 different sounds they make. The music is alright though, it suits the gameplay.
Since it’s a game that you can put in anytime and play it, and after it’s been out for years and is still fun to play, the replayability of this game is awesome. It’s still fun to play with your friends or by yourself. It can be repetitive at times, but so can most fighting games.
The Challenge of this game is fairly easy, Aimed at younger kids i think.
This is a classic SNES game that every SNES owner should consider buying.
