Brutal doesn't attempt to be a SF II or MK II clone - a refreshing change. Although it's not perfect, it offers good graphics and gameplay, but most importantly, the bite of originality.
Brutal has a very fresh idea (fighting as animals), but it really never comes together. The fighters are very appealing, but not being able to start with all the special moves somewhat hindered the excitement. Excellent graphics.

The bottom line is that Brutal: Paws of Fury is the epitome of mediocrity, the essence of a mixed bag. It succeeds visually, but it fails in the audio department. It's a great game as far as personality and uniqueness goes, but as a fighter it falls short of its goal. Two positives, two negatives. You could certainly do far worse than Brutal, even in the fighter category, but you could also do far better. It's a cheap game, and it will even keep you entertained for a week or two, but it doesn't possess the depth and sheer fun-factor needed to make it a staple of your library.
