For people who still think Steve Wright In The Afternoon is the height of wit, or that Bored of the Rings is timeless parody, this will no doubt be hilarious. It's not. It's a bit rubbish.
Unless you are just a diehard Clayfighter fan, this is probably not a game that you're going to want to spend a lot of time with. It's just far too sluggish to be taken seriously by any hardcore fighting game fan and once the novelty of the claymation wears off, and it doesn't take long, all you're left with is an un-inpsired fighting game that's just not much fun to play. If you absolutely must have your Clayfighter fix, you'd be better off waiting for Clayfighter 63 1/3.
ClayFighter was a timely idea back in the middle of the fighting game craze of the early-to-mid '90s, and its unique visual style and use of clay modeling techniques to render its cast of characters was bold enough to make it something of a cult hit in that age. But, removed from that time period, this fighter falters. Its graphics are no longer anything special, and its combat is stiff, stale and boring.
