A cool alternative to Virtua Fighter. It's not as good as VF2 or Fighters MEGAMiX, but it's good enough on its own merits. If you like the Virtua fighting style, then you'll probably like Fighting Vipers.
Hobby Consolas
«Fighting Vipers» es un gran juego de lucha, recomendable para los fanáticos del género y que se pone a la altura de los grandes, pero que no alcanza el nivel de su máximo oponente, «Virtua Fighter 2».
GamePro (US)
Aside from Virtua Fighter 2, this is probably one of the best fighters for the Saturn. It's not too deep, but it is fun. Call it Virtua Fighter Lite, call it Tekken 1.5, call it whatever you want, but don't miss it this Christmas.
Mega Fun
AM2 läßt‘s mal wieder so richtig knallen - und das im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes. Die Kämpferriege unterscheidet sich völlig von der der Virtua Fighter-Truppe. Gemeinsamkeiten zu Virtua Fighter sucht man bei Fighting Vipers, mal abgesehen von ähnlichen Special Moves, wirklich vergeblich. So verleihen einige Innovationen dem Reptiliengekloppe durchaus einen eigenen Charakter. So schützt Euch beispielsweise eine zusätzliche Panzerung vor allzu großem Energieverlust und somit vor einem frühzeitigen Ende. Setzt man seinem Gegenüber zu energisch zu, fällt dieser in beeindruckender Art und Weise durch die Umzäunung. Spielern, denen das Auswendiglernen von Special Moves bisher zu müßig war, werden mit der leichten Handhabung ihre helle Freude haben. Der Spielfluß erweist sich dadurch als sehr schnell und unkompliziert. Eine Konkurrenz zu Virtua Fighter stellen die schlagenden Schlangen nicht dar, jedoch eine hochinteressante Alternative.
If you have a Saturn, this is the fighting game to own. If you don't, Fighting Vipers gives you a good reason to get one.

In conclusion, Fighting Vipers is one of the best fighting games that I’ve played. I say that probably just because I find it accessible – and I’ve actually beaten a few people in it – but if a game can win the respect of a genre cynic, I’m all for that game. Fighting Vipers might be nearly 10 years old, but it’s still worth looking into. If you can find it for a cheap price, it might not be a bad idea to buy it.
The Video Game Critic
Blood is splattered during each hit, but those little red squares are hardly convincing. Sega included just about every option you could ask for, including a training mode, a team mode, and the ability to backup your records. This is one of the better fighters on the Saturn system, and it should satisfy both button mashers and serious fighting fans alike.
Game Revolution
All in all, Fighting Vipers was a good attempt at something truly revolutionary, but they just didn't take their time designing it. Players should enjoy it for it's wide variety of moves and the addition of armor and walls. Other than that, it's just your average fighting game.
