|Final Fight, Sega CD, Capcom, 1993|
Final Fight started as a decent 2D beat-em-up arcade game in 1989, then was ported into a mediocre Super Nintendo one in 1991. Critics postulated that consoles of the day were simply no match for Final Fight. But they forgot about one system. They always forget about it. The only 16-bit system that could handle Final Fight. The chosen one.That's right.The Sega CD.
|You forgot about the Sega CD? That makes me SO...DAMN...ANGRYYYYYY!!!!|
|You don't like Final Fight? That makes me SO...DAMN...meh, actually, I don't care. Let's go get a schnitzel.|
|And this lady can send you there. Oh, hi lady. Glad you're back from wherever Nintendo hid you.|
|Oh, cool, they added two-player. You know what Sega beat-em-up already has two-player?|
However, the battle between Streets of Rage and Final Fight had just begun. Sega may have been one-in-done for the Final Fight franchise, but the SNES would pump out two more installments to challenge Streets of Rage 2 & 3. Who would come out on top? That's the topic of another review...in fact, I smell a series brewing.
