Beat Supreme Warrior and you'll acquire the supreme patience of a video kung fu master. This game's for fu fans who don't mind getting their butts kicked while they watch a cool show.

In the end, though, the game suffers from another problem that plagues a lot of live video games - limited amounts of footage. There are a few odd surprises packed in, but in general, after you've fought a character a few times, you've seen most of what he or she is going to throw at you and watching the same scenes over and over isn't any fun either. To be fair, a lot of games that don't use live video have this problem too, but somehow, when it's 'real' people, it bothers you more. Still, it works OK on it's own terms and it does leave you wondering what Digital Pictures is up to next.

Kung fu movie fans will get a kick out of Supreme Warrior in more ways than one. It definitely takes time and patience to master the game, but if you do, you're in for a rousing martial arts adventure. The only thing missing is the subtitles.

Warrior's a good fight, but it's supremely challenging. This isn't a game for players who just want to fu around.

Supreme Warrior is yet another cheesy FMV game. While the game itself isn't that hot, it's a great to see the bad dubbing and the whacked out story. Supreme Warrior's colors aren't all that bad.

If you're a sucker for fighting games and you're tired of wasting money on generic beat-em-ups, Supreme Warrior might do just the trick. It's got some truly excellent qualities that could one day set new standards among video game fighters. However, it'll probably take some time before this type of contest is perfected - and only then will it see global acceptance.

Supreme Warrior has all the flavor and looks of those hilarious low grade martial arts flicks. The digitization of the full-motion video isn't all that bad and you'll actually want to see the story progress. However - the game itself is severely lacking. The motions you do possess seem to have no effect and it's very hard to tell the distance and when you should strike. If the game had some play to it, you could enjoy this game. However, it doesn't. Rent it and see if you like it.

Compared to Street Fighter, this is not a fighting game. Quite simply, it's a drag. Otherwise, Supreme Warrior has a lot going for itself. A criticism that I would level at Digital Pictures is that their obsessiveness with FMV gameplay often works against them.

I was imagining what DP could have done if the fighting sequences were done a la Virtua Fighter: I wouldn't have complained a bit. If the game was a balanced mix between a video game and ultra-cool live action Kung Fu. I would've kissed the CD and adopted it. Come on Digital Pictures, we wouldn't have been upset if some of the game wasn't FMV.

I'm getting tired of full-motion video-based titles. They all lack the interaction that makes good games. Supreme Warrior is no exception. The video in Supreme Warrior looks good (a rarity), but the actual game isn't much fun. The enemy attacks are hard to block. At times, it seems like you aren't getting anywhere. If you want a fighting game that tries to be different this is it, but it's only average.

The quality of the video looks a little bit better on the 32X CD thanks to an expanded color palette, but the overall play remains just as bad as the Sega CD and PC CD-ROM versions. And when the gameplay sucks, all the atmosphere and pretty pictures aren't going to save you. It's obvious that Digital Pictures should head back to the dojo and train a little bit more before thinking about releasing a sequel.

Vos mains et pieds s'agitent maladroitement à l'écran tandis que votre adversaire vous explose. Parfois, vous le touchez aussi. Pourquoi? Mystère...

To put it bluntly, unless you happen to be some sort of sadomasochist you should probably avoid this game and find something better to play, like Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat or even Eternal Champions.

Was soll denn das sein? Selten habe ich solch ein unspielbares Etwas wie Supreme Warrior auf meinem Monitor erblicken müssen. Die 3D-Ich-Perspektive mag ja für eine Reihe von Genres eine tolle Sache sein, für ein Prügelspiel ist sie es jedenfalls nicht. Zu keinem Zeitpunkt habt Ihr des Gefühl, Euren Kämpfer unter Kontrolle zu haben, Ihr hackt einfach wild auf dem Keyboard herum und hofft, den richtigen Move zu erwischen. Neben diesen spielerischen Unzulänglichkeiten nervt das Programm außerdem durch eine schon fast dilettantische Umsetzung, Die Videos schauen pixelig und verwaschen aus, und die Sounds hauen auch niemanden vom Stuhl. Bleibt eigentlich nur die Frage, warum Digital Pictures sich überhaupt an die PC-Konvertierung von „Supreme Warrior“ gemacht hat: Schon die Versionen für diverse Video-Konsolen waren Reinfälle.

In the end, Supreme Warrior is a failure on every level. It's visually nauseating, its sound is muddy and muffled and not up to CD quality standards. It's truly a waste of space in the 32X's library and never should have even been released on the Sega CD, let alone on the 32X. it may actually take top spot as my most hated game in the whole Genesis library.

Is there any reason to play Supreme Warrior? Think of it this way: It makes as much sense to play it as it did to make it in the first place. In case you can't figure that out, it means no.

Unfortunately, you can throw all the punches, kicks and blocks that you want, but you can only connect at certain predetermined times, which is a drag. Apparently there are some visual cues, but I couldn't make any sense out of them. I tried to carefully time my moves, and then I tried button mashing, but it didn't seem to make a difference either way. Supreme Warrior is another good idea ruined by poor gameplay.
