Treat Pit Fighter as a straightforward beat-em-up, forgetting the game's roots, and it ain't bad. You'll find an entertaining challenge well worth consideration for Christmas.
Strictly beat-em-up fans only for this game I'm afraid. Everybody else (and especially historians) ought to steer well clear.
Pit-Fighter zeigt sich als ordentlich spielbares Kampfsportspiel. Vor allem Anhänger von van Damme oder Seagle werden ihre Freude haben.
Grafik und Sound mußten auf dem C 64 ordentlich Federn lassen, die Sprites sind klein und farblich eher trist gehalten - trotzdem macht das Spiel noch Spaß.
The novelty of fighting dirty soon wears off due to repetitive, unskilful action. The unintelligent opponents aren't much of a challenge and after a few samey pits, it becomes tedious. Not quite the pits, but a dull, unambitious conversion of the coin-op.
A conversion that should never have been attempted. The novel arcade original used digitized graphics of real people as it's selling point, of which the '64 version is stripped. As a result, it's a tedious, unresponsive and unplayable beat-em-up with very little that will appeal for anyone.
