Cette suite est adaptée du jeu de baston sur Neo Geo. Certes, graphismes et bruitages sont loin d'égaler ceux de la Roll's des consoles, mais les programmeurs ont fait des efforts. Après une courte période d'adaptation, les coups spéciaux sont facilement réalisables. Les sons digitalisés ne sont pas de la meilleure qualité, mais, dans le feu de l'action, ce défaut est vite oublié. Essayez d'attendre la sortie officielle de ce jeu...

Fatal Fury 2 is a great cart and a worthy follow-up to the original. It may be another SFII clone at it's heart, but it still does almost everything right.

Fatal Fury 2 is a fistful of Genesis fighting fun, but be sure to play with a six-button controller. The only caveat to cost-conscious consumers: Something special for the SNES is due in the fall --- Fatal Fury Special. Whither the Genesis?

Unfortunately, Fatal Fury II was mostly overlooked — thanks to Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat — which is a crying shame, as this was one of the best fighters on the Genesis. The fact that it wasn't much of a financial success has made the game semi-rare though not very expensive find and it's worth a surf on eBay to locate a copy if you're a collector looking to round out your Genesis fighting game stock or a fighting game aficionado.

All the fighters, all the stages and extra options not in the arcade (like a speed setting) make this another fine conversion of a Neo Geo title. Little details (like the guy you can knock off the motorcycle in Kim Kaphwan's stage when you switch lines) are retained, as have the last-ditch finishing moves. However, the sounds could be improved (especially the dizzy sound effect and some of the voices). This is the type of game that can truly be appreciated with a 6-button controller. Excellent opening cinema, though.

Konvertierungen von technisch anspruchsvollen NG-Titeln haben es auf dem MD nicht leicht. So wirken aufgrund der mageren Farbpalette viele Spiele gegenüber dem Original regelrecht blaß. In diesem Punkt muß man Takara jedoch ein kleines Kompliment aussprechen: Gegenüber dem ersten Teil haben sich die lizenzfreudigen Japaner merklich gesteigert, was vor allem an den größeren Sprites und detaillierteren Hintergründen liegt. Auch beim Sound zogen sich die Macher recht elegant aus der Affäre, ein Sonderlob gebührt übrigens der sehr durchdacht umgesetzte Spielbarkeit. Schade ist allerdings, daß der Schwierigkeitsgrad sehr hoch angesetzt ist. Fazit: Eine rundum gelungene Keilerei, die aber nur im Schatten von Super Street Fighter 2 und Mortal Kombat II stehen kann.

Since there's already been another sequel (Fatal Fury Special) in the arcades, it's hard to see this as a ground-breaking release. Definitely try before you buy; that way you'll know if it suits your tastes when there are so many other fighting games on the shelves.
