Real Bout Fatal Fury Special reviews and comments

A lot of improvements have been made from the last entry of Fatal Fury, the combat has a faster pace and it seemed that the developers tweaked the combo system a good chunk in order to make it more accessible for more people, that is a good thing for me but I can see how it would be a bad thing for others, that will depend on your view I guess

 The character selection is good but, as for today's standards, it may seem more like a little expansion than a sequel, so you will be seeing a lot of familiar faces. One thing that I didn't like was the lack of "story" after you beat the main antagonist, you'll have some lines of the character you finished with and some funny and lighthearted "scenes" with some characters when the credits are rolling, the scenes are nice but aren't enough for you to try to beat the game again in order to see new ones, that gives this game more focus on the competitive multiplayer mode which I think it would be a lot of fun, even more than the last game.

Another thing that I liked quite a lot is the sprite work, the characters look better than before but what gives a lot of mood are the stages, they're so different and picturesque by themselves that you'll just want to get to the next rivel just to see their stage.

This game sure has some tweaks and improvements, if you're going to play it for fights with your friends or people, it will be an amazing time, but if you're going to play it by yourself, don't expect a lot of replayability.
