Summary

The best brawler game of all time. Even with the slowdown.

The Good

The graphics are great. The special moves and combos that Haggar and company have really make the game funner then the first two Final Fights. The character designs are very nice, for both the heroes of the game and the street punk enemies. The boss fights are fun and not cheap. The music is catchy.

The Bad

The SNES processor was not made for games like this. Capcom just put to much in here and there are times when the game is brought to a crawl during 2 player games. Capcom should rerelease this with the slowdown taken out. I also don't like how this is the final Final Fight. Capcom should have made ten more Final Fights since this game's release if you ask me.

The Bottom Line

It's a brawler, with incredible graphics. The game offers a dash attack and lots of special moves and combos for the characters and these make the game a lot more fun then Final Fight 1 and 2. This game also has secret rooms and multiple ways of defeating levels (example: destroy the bus stop sign and you can finish the third level in super quick time). The massive slowdown in 2 player mode might turn people off, but it actually does make the game less cheap.
