This package works because the pace is quick, the gameplay is simple and there's a lot of personality to the shrunken graphics. Even without the two-player support, I prefer this 8-bit redesign to the Super NES port. Still, critics of the genre will find that it is yet another repetitive action game where all you do is mash the attack button. But don't listen to the naysayers, because Mighty Final Fight is one of the Nintendo Entertainment System's very last must-own games.

It isn't original, it sounds like hell, and it doesn't even try to look nice, but MFF is one heck of a game in spite of itself. Although not as polished as its progenitor, Mighty Final Fight is a sort of "Spaceballs" to Final Fight's "Star Wars" - a low-budget, tongue-in-cheek homage/parody that manages to be at least as entertaining as its visually-stunning namesake.

So while Mighty Final Fight isn't an exact port of the original, it doesn't try to be. It keeps the Final Fight gameplay intact while adding its own spin on it. The result is an excellent title that ranks up there with other side-scrolling fighitng games like River City Ransom or Double Dragon. Had the game been a little longer and included two-player mode, it would have shot this game over the top. Many Final Fight fans may scoff at this game, but you should definetly pick it up, as it proves to be another high-quality cart released late in the NES' lifecycle.

Retrogaming History
Un Final Fight così non me lo sarei mai aspettato e invece eccolo qua deformato e rivisitato. La cartuccia contiente un picchiaduro a scorrimento carico di simpatia e tanto divertimento. La scelta di rimpicciolire gli sprite è stato un sicuro vantaggio poichè l'hardware del Nintendo avrebbe faticato non poco a gestire sprite come quelli del coin-op. Ed invece il gameplay è caratterizzato da una maggiore velocità di esecuzione, da un'ottima risposta ai comandi e da una rilevazione delle collisioni precisa e puntuale. Un Final Fight davvero Mighty!

La giocabilità presente in Mighty Final Fight è decisamente elevata, merito degli ottimi controlli, della risposta ai comandi immediata e dell’assenza nel gioco di situazioni in cui è impossibile difendersi, come succedeva in molti picchiaduro anni ’90, in cui il personaggio guidato dal giocatore veniva sempre accerchiato da vari avversari contemporaneamente, rendendo impossibile difendersi da più di un attacco.

Taken as a whole, MFF easily stands out as an awesome NES title. It's short length and occasional cheap boss patterns bring it down a notch, but it's a nice gesture from Capcom for NES fans who weren't ready to upgrade at the start of the 16-bit era. While most would prefer the flawless Sega CD Final Fight, Mighty stands alone as an interesting diversion from those who have simply had enough of this game in their diet over the past 10 years. Actually, if it wasn't for River City Ransom, this would easily be the best side scroller on the console. That says a lot when there's over 700 games for a system.

The lack of two player option and primo eight-bit graphic bumps Mighty Final Fight from the top ranks, but you can't help but like the cute, cuddly vicious brawlers. Tackle this one if you're a big Rick Moranis fan and you've never felt the power and glory you only get from kicking video keister.

Mighty Final Fight is a prime example of what happens when a developer competently ports a big game to a smaller platform. While it loses a lot of the features of the arcade and SNES versions, it makes up for those losses with unique moves and an art style that brings a smile to my face. Sure, I can play an arcade-perfect port of Final Fight on newer consoles, but I’ll always come back to Mighty Final Fight, if for no other reason than to see Guy bust out E. Honda’s Hundred Hand Slap one more time.

Nach der Charakterauswahl bei Mighty Final Fight musste ich doch schwer staunen, als ich musikalisch ein großes Deja Vu hatte. Was macht ein Mega Man-Soundtrack in einem Final Fight-Spiel? Aber egal! Die Grafik ist ok, die Action geht in Ordnung und der Spielspaß liegt auf einem angenehmen Niveau. Woran haperts? Einen Koopmodus! Wäre dieser vertreten, würde Mighty Final Fight ein guter Sidescrollbrawler im 8Bit-Kostüm sein. So bleibt er leider hinter Double Dragon zurück.

Final boss is some jerk-off who is half robot, half irritating. Most of the fight is him shooting his endless supply of rocket-propelled fists at you, then running away. There's really nothing fulfilling about finishing this game. Normally this would be the point where I say something about the ending of the game being a disappointment, then completely ruining it for you, so that you no longer have any reason to play the game. In this case I've totally forgotten what happens. It could end up being a really cool ending, but somehow I doubt it.

Capcom beweist mit ihrer Neuauflage des Final Fight-Klassikers wieder mal, daß auf dem betagten NES noch gute Spiele möglich sind. Lobenswert sind natürlich die drei Original-Kämpfer, die bei der 16 Bitter-Version nur im japanischen Importmodul Final Fight Guy zu finden waren, das leider nur in limitierter Auflage auf den Markt kam. Die putzigen Sprites lassen auf alles andere als ein Prügelspiel schließen und sind immer wieder für einen Lacher gut, gerade weil Ihr auf alte Bekannte in neuem Design trefft. Mighty Final Fight erweist sich als fair und kann bis auf das NES-typische Flackern auch technisch beeindrucken; auf alle Fälle ein Grund, sein verstaubtes 8 Bit-System mal wieder aus dem Schrank hervorzukramen und im nostalgischen Sinne ein wenig zu zocken.

Eigentlich heißt „mighy“ ja „mächtig“, aber bei „Mighty Final Fight“ sollte man es wohl eher mit „Möchtegern“ übersetzen. Das bedeutet in diesem Fall, daß wir nicht zu diesem Spiel raten können. Spart lieber das Geld und kauft Euch ein SNES. Da habt Ihr mehr von.
