Summary

Great for it's day!

The Good

The game looked great for being one of the first N64 games ( and the first real 3D fighter on the N64). The graphics were state of the art with plenty of pretty special effects. It was a weapon based fighter, which made it a nice change from what was out at the time also. The engine ran at a very smooth 90 frames a second, even with all the bells and whistles that made it into the game.

The Bad

Some of the moves were a little slow in their responsiveness. Projectile attacks could have been a lot faster. Only 8 playable characters with two unlockable ones.

The Bottom Line

A classic fighter for the time of 1997. A real look at what the N64 had to offer.
