SummaryThe first game of a very good series of fighting games, but not the 1 which should be called the best in the series
The GoodThe game itself is great, unlike Street Fighter where you play with cartoonish characters, here you play with digitized awesome characters, which seems like your playing a fight between real people. Every character has a unique story and interesting special moves. Another great thing is the violence - loads of blood, Fatalities - this is the thing which makes this series of fighting games a unique one today.
The BadThe character roster is not too big (10 characters, 7 of which are only playable) , and the game is quite hard to complete. The versus mode is fun to play for only a little time with your friends, and while the "Test your might" mini-game addition is a better bonus than nothing, its not too impressing. Another thing which i did not like is that about half of the arenas look exactly the same, though there were some unique like the Pit stage where you could do a stage-Fatality, but for the most part the arenas are boring.
