Overall, I really enjoyed Fatal Fury 2 on the SNES. While not quite as good as the original Neo Geo or the Genesis versions, it still remains a very solid 2D fighter. I would highly recommend this title if your either a fan of the series or if you've played Super Street Fighter 2 to death on the SNES. A great port of a great game. Good work Takara.

Le célèbre Fatal Fury 2 arrive enfin en version française sur Super Nintendo. C'est clair, ce jeu fait partie des meilleurs jeux de baston sur console.

Pero lo más importante para todo juego de lucha que se precie es que sea jugable. Y este «Fatal Fury 2» derrocha jugabilidad por todos sus poros, consiguiendo que una vez más la lucha se convierta en un divertidísimo espectáculo. Sin duda, un trabajo muy bien hecho.

Por otro lado, el valor como juego de lucha se acerca además a la calidad de los diseños de sus personajes, así como la calidad de los mismos y la variedad de estilos hasta el momento solo presente en Street Fighter. Técnicamente rayando el sobresaliente, con melodías que se quedan en la memoria y gráficos que entran por los ojos. Solo fallos como de nuevo la IA, bastante baja, o quizá la imposibilidad de utilizar a los cuatro personajes finales le hacen bajar el global. Recomendado tanto para seguidores de la serie, fans de la lucha o de SNK en general.

Fatal Fury 2 came off better than expected. This terrific translation offers all the fighters, all the moves and all the fund of the original arcade version. The control is absolutely flawless and the timing for all the special moves is precise. My only gripe would have to be the music, but it's not bad enough to warrant the volume being turned down. Overall, this is a great game and worthy of the original it came from.

If you love Fatal Fighters and you want more bang for your brawlin' buck, then hold out and wait for Fatal Fury Special, which contains everything this game doesn't - speed, combos and great graphics. Until then, scrape up the three bucks and head out to rent this one.

Das Spiel zockt sich zwar wirklich nicht schlecht, dennoch ist es bis zur Klasse eines Edel-Beat'em Ups wie Super Street Fighter 2 noch ein weiter Weg. Die knallharten Prügel-Fans unter Euch dürfen sich das Game dennoch ruhig mal genauer ansehen.

Fatal Fury 2 marks a dramatic improvement over the original one-on-one fighter. There are only eight fighters, but you can choose from any of them. The animation is improved, and the background scenery is quite attractive. The controls have been revamped to include high and low kicks, high and low punches, and two additional attacks. Certain moves even let you to move between the foreground or background planes, giving the game a 3D element. The audio is still weak though, with muffled sound effects and tunes you won't find yourself singing in the shower. The main thing that struck me about Fatal Fury 2 is how similar it is to Street Fighter 2. Not only are the controls similar, but the overall presentation is a carbon copy, all the way down the to globe on the character select screen. And one last thing - could they come up with a less attractive group of fighters? I mean, there's only one female, and half of the characters are obese!
