If you love fighting carts and are sick of lousy SF II and MK copycat games, CF may be just he medicine you need. All we want to know is: where are the Claytalities?

The end-boss looks like a bunch of grapes. He's kinda easy to beat, but this is a great game and you must have it.

Un jeu vraiment marrant en mode 2 joueurs et, pour une fois, pas une goutte de sang ne perle à l'écran.

Everything on the Super NES version has been faithfully carried over --- all the moves, all the fighters and remarkably, clear and crisp voices! This was always a clever parody of the fighting genre and I can't wait for C2: Judgement Clay to arrive. The control, however, is a little bit touchy and you will definitely want to use the six-button controller to fully enjoy this one.
For some reason, however, I still like it, after all that. The game can get kind of challenging at times, but it's mostly on the side of controls instead of a tough opponent. Even the N.Boss isn't much more than a computer generated necklace with eyes and pearl projectiles and a throw move. Clay Fighter is not hard to find and not that expensive, so if you don't have it, there's no real problem with picking it up, but just remember that the controls may need a bit of getting use to really have fun with it.

Von der innovativen Idee und Grafik der SNES-Variante blieb auf dem MD allerdings nicht mehr viel übrig: Die Knet-Hoschis verdreschen sich vor schlecht gezeichneten Szenarien ohne Sinn und Verstand, die Special Moves gleichen sich in der Ausführung doch ziemlich und die Animationen machen bei einer derartig schwachen Atmosphäre nicht lange Spaß. Dazu kommt, daß der Schwierigkeitsgrad, sobald Ihr Eure Moves drauf habt, rapide abfällt und die Kollisionsabfrage zu wünschen übrig läßt. Nebenbei habt Ihr das Spiel sowieso nach max. zwei Stunden durchgezockt. Clayfighter geriet als bloße Konvertierung zum lauen Scherz; öfter mal was Neues, Jungs.

Insgesamt ist Clayfigther zwar eine technisch gute, aber leider spielerisch wertlose Umsetzung des Prügelspiel-Erfolgs. Wer partout nicht von „Haudrauf“-Spielen lassen kann, sollte sich dieses Modul zur Abschreckung antun. Ansonsten gibt’s ja schließlich „Street Fighter“.
