Summary

Probably better than you'd expect from the Game.com. Worth a full play through.

The Good

Controls & speed are good. All characters are recognizable. Gameplay is fun over all. Game modes are good for replay. Very interesting for fans of the Saturn/Arcade game & not actually disappointing all things considered.

The Bad

Choppy animation. When someone's energy bar is emptied the character has no falling animation, they just go from standing to laying on the ground jump cut style. The 3D evade button doesn't seem to help much, it just scrolls the background cage.

The Bottom Line

If you've played the Saturn or Arcade game this is interesting but certainly not on par with those. All in all a great handheld fighting game for being from 1998.
