Megamix has two play modes - Vipers and Virtua Fighter. As a VF fan, I'd like to have seen more of a difference, plus little things are missing from VF mode - like rising attacks and the original sound effects. What makes Megamix so great is over 30 unique characters, each with more thought put into them than most fighting games put together. As well as the fast, flowing gameplay associated with AM2. The strangest thing about the Japanese version of the game is that severe slowdown occurs on some machines. I've had almost no problem at all, but Jaime's Flash Saturn has suffered long sections of slow, jerky play?! Megamix is one the best games I've played in ages, and I love it to death. For anyone else who's eve enjoyed an AM2 fighting game, this is a God-send. Those who've never got into one before, here's your chance. Amazing!

This game is the benchmark for 32 bit fighting games. A must have for all and certainly a great reason to own the Saturn. It has a great mixture of animation, special effects, gameplay and sound -- an instant classic for all hardcore gameplayers...

Fighters Megamix is an excellent game in more ways than one. This is one of those games that will sell a system in a blink of an eye. If you have the money to get this game rush out to the stores and get yourself a copy while they still have it. This is a game that should not be missed.

Estamos ante una obra maestra, ante un título que ha sabido reunir lo mejor de todos y cada uno de los juegos de lucha poligonales aparecidos hasta la fecha. Tal vez "Fighters Megamix" sea superado por "Soul Blade" para PlayStation en cuanto a gráficos y planteamiento, pero, en una valoración general, me atrevo a decir que este es el juego de lucha más completo que existe actualmente para consola alguna. Bien por Sega que ha conseguido realizar un juego que deleitará durante mucho tiempo a los amantes de la lucha.

Nach dutzenden von Movelisten zu Beat ‘em Ups, die ich schon erstellen mußte, fällt einem Fighters Megamix sofort positiv ins Auge. Das Schlag- und Bewegungsspektrum ist allererste Sahne! Endlich dürfen wir mit den Virtua-Klopfern gezielt in die dritte Dimension ausweichen und den Gegner ins Leere laufen lassen. 22 Charaktere stehen anfangs zur Verfügung, um mit ihnen 10 weitere zu erspielen. Nach wie vor halte ich ein solches Feature als sehr motivierend. Der Mix ist einfach klasse abgestimmt. Alleine die Tatsache als Hornet-Car aus Daytona anzutreten und einen heißen Gummi auf den Gegner abzulassen, finde ich rekordverdächtig. So etwas abgefahrenes ist mir noch nicht untergekommen. Aber trotz aller positiven Aspekte stößt mir die Kollisionsabfrage (im direkten Vergleich zur Edelperle Virtua Fighter 2) etwas negativ ins Auge. Auch vermisse ich den Learning Mode der meiner Meinung nach das revolutionäre Nonplusultra auf dem Beat ‘em Up Sektor darstellt.

Sometimes it seems like a company does something just for the gaming fans. Though it often seems like the games that are released are not made with us in mind (the lack of endings jumps to mind), there are times when you just have to step back and admit to yourself, this is such a great idea, I'm glad somebody thought it would work. And even though Fighters Megamix is kind of a mixed bag, it is simply put the best fighting game on the system.
All in all, Fighters Megamix provides plenty of bang for the buck. Sadly though, it is the closest Saturn owners will ever get to a real port of Virtua Fighter 3.
Force est de constater que l'on à affaire à plus qu'une vulgaire compilation. Les nouveautés sont non négligeables et justifient l'acquisition de ce soft même si vous possédez déjà l'un des titres compilés. Malgré une réalisation en deçà de VF2 (qui avait quand même placé la barre très haute sur ce point), le jeu n'a pas à avoir honte et est impressionnant pour l'époque. La quantité de personnages et les nombreux modes laisse entrevoir de bonnes séances de baston à 1 ou 2 joueurs et finissent par en faire, selon moi, un indispensable de la console.
GamePro (US) (Apr, 1997)
Fighters Megamix doesn't look as polished as Soul Blade or Virtua Fighter 2, but it's easy to play and is well executed. Ultimately it's a last-gasp effort for a system running third behind its competitors. This one is for diehard Saturn fighting fans only.
GameSpot (Feb 04, 1997)
Forget about Virtua Fighter 3. Throw away the pretenders and wanna-bes. Fighters Megamix is the only fighting game a Saturn owner needs. At its heart, Fighters Megamix is a character-driven game. That is to say, it combines all the fighters from Virtua Fighter 2, every one of the fighters from Fighting Vipers, a couple of worthies from Virtua Fighter Kids, and a mess of characters from other Sega titles, including Janet from Virtua Cop 2, and Siba, a character rumored to have been cut from the original Virtua Fighter. One of the more bizarre characters is - believe it or not - the Hornet from Daytona USA that grabs opponents with one tire and uses another to lay a patch on the victim's face. Smokin'.
The Video Game Critic (Mar 31, 2004)
Some may consider this game to be a bit of a rehash, but if you just want to kick some serious booty, Megamix delivers the goods.
Video Games (May, 1997)
Bleibt zu sagen: Fighters Megamix erreicht grafisch nicht ganz die Finesse von Virtua Fighter 2 oder anderen PS-Prüglern, hinterläßt aber dafür im spielerischen Bereich einen durchaus motivierenden Eindruck.
Edge (Feb, 1997)
Sega’s Virtua Fighter series shows every sign of becoming a variant-spinning franchise to match Capcom’s Street Fighter II series. But whereas Capcom’s sequels have occasionally disappointed, Sega’s only seem to get better. Virtua Fighter Remix may have delivered nothing more than its title promised but Fighters Megamix is a real feast for fans of Sega beat ‘em ups.
Game Revolution (Jun 06, 2004)
Fighters Megamix is a good dose of goofiness in a genre that has been bogged down with seriousness. With a huge number of characters, moves, and surprises, this game should be one of the best fighters of all time. With the Fighting Vipers engine, however, it may just pass in to obscurity as a very good attempt. So if you're tired of all the basic "save-the-world" fighting games, you should take a gander at this game. If, however, you have a problem dealing with reality already, fighting as a kangaroo in a Santa outfit might not help.
