Attempt to make a Mortal Kombat - style fighter with Win3.1 technology falls flat on its face.

The Good
The graphics are quite decent, considering the limited game engine used.
Uses FMV to get the player into the setting, plot sort-of makes sense

The Bad
Computer is impossible to beat
Remember Art of Fighting, where you needed to power up to perform special moves?
Remember how the CPU cheated, performing moves on zero energy?
ENM is like that, except here the regular moves are limited, so after attacking a few times, you have to back off to regain your breath. The CPU, meanwhile, attacks constantly, and kills you in 10 seconds, even if you block everything.
* The gameplay, and by consequence, the entire game, are no fun at all... shame about the cool box, and all the colorful characters you'll never get to see.

The Bottom Line
* This is not a game for playing... it's for putting down and avoiding.
* Someone should give this game to seanbaby so he can make a page about it! 0_<
