Deadly Moves shows that the Megadrive has the potential to produce an excellent one-on-one beat 'em up. Although it's no Street Fighter II, Deadly Moves should go down very well with Megadrive owners after a decent beat 'em up.

Und so zieht sich die Abkupferei wie ein roter Faden durch das Spiel, was aber immerhin den Vorteil hat, daß Streetfighter-Profis die Anleitung nicht lesen müssen. Die Grafik ist gut gezeichnet, besonders die unterschiedlichen Hintergründe fand ich sehr gelungen, die Animationen und Schlagtechniken sind absolut ausreichend. Somit bleibt festzuhalten, wer Streetfighter noch nicht hat oder noch ein zweites Prügelspiel sucht, kann ruhig zugreifen. Es wurde zwar kein Hit geschaffen, aber gute Arbeit geleistet.

Deadly Moves could never challenge Street Fighter 2's throne, but if you want a nice change of pace, this is a viable option.

Auf dem Super Nintendo sah Power Athlete noch ganz ordentlich aus. Bei der Mega Drive-Verfassung wurde leider teilweise geschlampt und so muß man in Sachen Grafik und Sound schwere Abstriche machen. Des Weiteren zieht der Schwierigkeitsgrad bis hin zur Unspielbarkeit an und man wird nach nur kurzer Zeit das Modul frustriert zur Seite legen.

No matter what you call it, Deadly Moves is a mediocre fighting game hidden behind some questionable design choices. When it comes right down to it, I don't mind if your game is a blatant rip-off; what I care about is good gameplay. Deadly Moves has all the right elements, but fails to capture of the magic of Street Fighter II.

I used to love playing fighters, so the thought of trying such an obscure game out sounded good, but this game is just a sorry excuse for a fighting game. I can't see it working in anyone's book. Deadly Moves is right down there with the worst of the worst, and it's easily as bad as FMV games such as Midnight Raiders and Supreme Warrior even though it's not a FMV game. I took a low blow in I.Q. for the team by playing a game as bad as this, so do us both a favor and avoid this trash heap of a game like the plague. You'll be all the better off and might keep enough of your gaming sanity to be able to play a better game!
