The detailed, 3D graphics don't get much better than this on the Saturn, although the urban backgrounds aren't particularly interesting. The control is dead-on, and the anime introduction is far more fun to watch that the 3D rendered stuff in other games. With six modes and options to spare, Last Bronx is senseless violence at its best.

Aún así, los atractivos personajes y sus potentes armas, la simulación de lucha súper real y la siempre sobresaliente realización técnica de los productos de Sega hace que estemos ante un juego muy recomendable que supone la alternativa más interesante a la saga Virtua Fighter.

Directamente vindos da Saturn, os ferozes lutadores japoneses de Last Bronx invadiram o PC, transformando o monitor no pano de fundos dos seus combates,

So, if you have a Saturn, don't bother with the PC version of Last Bronx. If you don't have a Saturn, and are a victim of the dismal 3D fighting category on the PC, don't be afraid of Last Bronx. It's playable, and with the upcoming 3D patch, who know what could happen?

Good, deep game to play. Above-average fighter with interesting characters. Fun factor is definitely there. Recommended for VF2 lovers, and recommended even more for the few lucky people who have Last Bronx in the arcade (for intense practice at home).

Warum Last Bronx auf der wirklich sehenswerten höchsten Detailstufe so sehr in die Knie geht, ist etwas unverständlich. Das ist aber auch der einzige Kritikpunkt, ansonsten spielt sich Last Bronx ähnlich gut wie Virtua Fighter 2. Riesig sind die Neuerungen gegenüber dem Vorgägner nicht, so daß Sie nicht um jeden Preis zugreifen müssen. Ist Virtua Fighter 2 allerdings ausgereizt, so ist Last Bronx die derzeit beste Beat’ em Up-Alternative.

Un bon jeu de combat trop marqué par ses origines japonaises : attention au chauvinisme sauvage.

Abordant un gameplay orienté arme blanche, Last Bronx apporte une certaine fraîcheur que beaucoup de joueurs devraient apprécier. Même si il est loin d'être parfait et légèrement en deçà de la concurrence, le soft n'en reste pas moins divertissant et possède sa propre personnalité. Malgré la présence de quelques petits bugs graphiques, Last Bronx représentait aussi une claque technique pour l'époque. Personnages et décors en 3D, détaillés, animations fluides, jeu tournant à 60 fps. Peu de titres peuvent en dire autant... Même après 14 longues années d'évolution.

Was soll ich sagen? Das Spiel ist gut, da gibt's wenig auszusetzen. Nun ist es aber so, daß gerade bei Arcade-Games eine Menge vom Aha-Faktor eines Spiels abhängt. Und der fehlt leider. Ich werde das dumpfe Gefühl nicht los, daß bei Sega die PC-Umsetzungen von einem vollautomatischen Programm, einem Roboter oder einem gefühlslosen Konvertier-Kollektiv übernommen werden. Daß dabei die allgemeine Präsentation leidet, ist noch nicht das Schlimmste. Aber warum nutzt man die Leistung des PC nicht für wirklich schicke Hintergründe? Für hämmernde Melodien? Vielleicht für eine fortlaufende Handlung? Für überraschende Effekte? Warum gibt's keine Highscore-Liste, vielleicht sogar im Internet?

In the end, Last Bronx is a definite must-own title for all Saturn-owning, fighting game connoisseurs. The excellent motion-captured animation, strong visuals, and refined combat system all work together to create a classic brawling experience that should appeal to both newbies and veterans alike. Little touches like a strong soundtrack, nifty animated endings and stellar backgrounds – all of which are made more realistic due to the inclusion of dozens of real life Japanese corporate sponsors – are just the icing on the proverbial cake. If given the choice, though, snatch up the Japanese version for the bonus game modes, fold-out poster, RAM cartridge stickers and a miniature gashapon of Greyvon holding his spectral Demon Scythe.

The number of moves is less than it has been in the other Sega fighters, plus the number of characters leaves something to be desired. Too bad there aren’t any hidden characters or anything of the like in this game, it would have brought more replay value to the table than what is presented here right now. Its not that Last Bronx is a bad game, it just has some glaring flaws in it that could have been fixed easily, like the AI or the character balance. Other than those 2 major gripes, Last Bronx is an exceptional fighting game, especially with 2 players, the one player game is lacking somewhat, but still offers a pleasant experience. Worth picking up if you can find it at bargain bin prices.

Hardcore arcade goers will be aware that the Last Bronx coin-op has held a relatively low profile in the west since its release in 1996, proving less successful than it deserved to be. Although its graphics failed to break any ground, it nevertheless impressed fighting game fans with the speed and realism of the fighters' movements. Thankfully for Saturn owners, while losing only slightly in visual terms, the console version of the game retains the gameplay and the aforementioned strengths of the coin-op, running in hi-res mode at a super-fluid 60 frames per second.

Overall Last Bronx is a perfect port of its arcade predecessor with some extras. As with most arcade games, they are only meant to grab your attention for short spans at a time. But as with those same games, when they are well done, they can easily grab your attention again and again.

Die Aufmachung stimmt bei Last Bronx. Präzise Steuerung, butterweiche Animationen der Polygon-Kämpfer und eine stimmige Sound-Kulisse – die Sega-Wurzeln sind unübersehbar. Auch für Abwechslung ist gesorgt, viele Spielmodi lassen mich immer mal wieder zum Gamepad greifen. Und um alle Special Moves der Kämpfer perfekt zu beherrschen, muß man sich oft in den Ring stürzen. Mein persönlicher Favorit: Mr. Holzhammers »dreimal auf die Rübe«- Kombination. Gegenüber dem »Vorgänger« bietet Last Bronx allerdings kaum Neuerungen; etwas mehr Innovationslust hätte das Spiel in 80er-Wertungsregionen gehoben.

Last Bronx reizt die Grundidee der Quasi-3D-Prügler bis zur Neige aus. Die Akteure bewegen sich bei maximaler Detailwahl wirklich trefflich, die komplexe Steuerung der zahlreichen Special Moves erschließt sich teilweise sogar rein intuitiv. Da fliegen dann die Fetzen, daß es nur so eine Freude ist und die besiegten Gegner meterweit durch die Luft segeln. Agressionsabbau leichtgemacht, sozusagen.

Schlagkräftig, was Sega hier wieder auf die Beine gestellt hat. Warum es nicht reicht, um der Konkurrenz aus dem eigenen Hause (Virtua Fighter 2) einen Tritt zu verpassen? Die Kämpfer sind nicht so geschmeidig und schnell animiert, haben nur den braunen Gürtel (Punktabzug bei den Schlagvarianten) und besitzen meines Erachtens bis auf „Muckiman“ Zaimoku und Zuhälter-Verschnitt Kurosawa zu wenig Individualität. Irgendwie flutscht‘s auch bei der Spielbarkeit nicht ganz so gut.

Le jeu est loin d'être facile, même dans le mode de difficulté Easy, et il faudra pas mal d'acharnement pour le retourner dans tous les sens. On peut regretter l'absence d'un mode Survival, mais de toute façon c'est à deux qu'on s'amuse le plus dans un jeu de combat, et là, pas de problème. Cependant sa technicité le réserve à un public averti : Last Bronx est un jeu exigeant, vous aurez été prévenus !

I really hate to admit it, but Last Bronx is one of the better fighting games on the PC. That's not to say it's very good or very fun, and there's no one I could recommend this to with a straight face. Last Bronx is wholly unoriginal and almost pitiful in terms of gameplay, a title that's been outclassed by lots of other fighting games on other systems. I suppose that if you don't own a console unit and are desperate for a fighter to play on the PC, this would be worth checking out, but otherwise I wouldn't waste my time.

This game is just another in a long list of arcade fighting games. There isn't anything new or exciting about Last Bronx to make it stand out from the crowd. It is fun in its own scope, but if you are planning on buying only one game in this genre, you might be better served looking elsewhere. I think I'll turn off the computer and do some real-life sparring. Now where did I put my fighting sticks?

Last Bronx's only major fault, in fact, lies in the awesome familiarity of its various elements. Eight fighters with a heaping handful of special moves, eight environments, and gameplay modes like arcade, survival, VS., and team battle are certainly nothing new. Still, a good fighting game on the PC is not to be ignored, and if you're a Virtua Fighter 2 alumnus who has long bemoaned the absence of weapons in that game, bemoan no longer: your virtual cup runneth over.

I kind of feel bad for saying that Last Bronx isn't a good game. They tried so hard to make 'the best Saturn 3D fighter', but unfortunately it failed. But let's start with the positive. Last Bronx is probably the fastest 3D fighter you can get on your Saturn. The animations are very fluid and the jumps are so fast they look a bit unnatural, especially when you are accustomed to the Virtua Fighter series. It looks great when the characters hit each other with their weapons: it shows some kind of collision spark without any sign of slowdown. Last Bronx even surpasses Fighters Megamix in the degree of speed.

Last Bronx was a Sega Model 2 fighting game that enjoyed a decent amount of success in Japanese arcades but barely drummed up any business stateside. Only eight characters are available in the game, plus Red Eye, the game's boss. Six of the game's characters look like typical street thugs, but the other two look like they just got finished taping an episode of 90210. The big difference between Last Bronx and the Virtua Fighter series is the inclusion of weapons.
