Description official descriptions

From various time periods of past, present and future, nine fighters killed in an unjust manner find themselves given a second chance for life. An alien being, known only as the Eternal Champion, brings back the fighters into a competition for one reason: to find one among them worthy of being resurrected, giving them a chance to avert their death and tip the balance between good and evil.

The fighters range from different eras of Earth's History: Larcen, the cat burglar. Jetta, the circus acrobat. Blade, the futuristic bounty hunter. Midknight, the vampiric bio-chemist. Rax, the cyborg. Shadow, the corporate assassin. Slash, the neanderthal. Trident, a Atlantean warrior. And Xavier, a warlock and alchemist.

The game is a 2D one on one fighting title. Each character supports a large number of special moves and individual fighting styles. At the end of a match players have the option to unleash an "Overkill" on a defeated opponent, brutally killing the loser in a graphic manner, or the option to use the background itself for a stage kill.

Whoa! This game is hard!

The Good
I think the story for this game is unique and original. It is interesting and the characters are pretty cool. The levels are really nicely designed and the graphics look good. I don't recall the music so I imagine it wasn't too bad or that good, otherwise I would have remembered it. I love the fact that the game is for a 6-button controller for the simple fact that it makes the combo's more interesting. The combo's are actually pretty cool and they can go on for a good amount of time. I was killed once in only 2 combo's.

The Bad
I felt that the button response in this game was a little slow. Which usually doesn't happen in fighting games. For me that made the game insanely hard to beat. I couldn't believe how hard the first level was. Maybe this game wasn't meant for me, I love a good fighting game.

The Bottom Line
Pretty cool game with a challenge. Perfect for a Fighting game buff who is sick of dominating. This one should definitely keep you busy for a while.
