Excerpt: Life can be tough sometimes. You have to deal with school, work, relationships, and just about everything that existence can throw at you. It’s not easy to make it out there. Sometimes you’ll feel as if you’re the lone sane person in this crazy mixed-up world of ours, with no one else to rely on. Have you ever felt that the whole world was against you? Have you ever thought that people were plotting your undoing or your utmost misery in general? I know, I know.
Excerpt: Back in the day, Final Fight was easily one of my favorite arcade games. My local theater had a copy, and I remember many a Friday night spent with a roll of quarters and a few buddies as we brawled our way through Metro City, the game's fictitious setting. Soon after, the game made the jump to Super Nintendo, and I could get my beat-em-up fix at home. Unfortunately, the home version was never quite as good as the arcade original (which was a common thing at the time).
Summary: Let's travel back in time, to Metro City! And smash some dude's car! That sounds pretty cool, huh, hey guys?
Pros: 2-player link mode, All three original player characters, plus two secret ones, Hot graphics and gameplay, Less things censored than before (Character names like Sodom and Damnd), Mountains of enemies on screen at once, New and wonderful dialogue, Unlockable secrets
Cons: Maybe they could have added more frames of animation to the old sprites..., Poison and Roxy have been once again replaced with the ambiguously retarded duo, Billy and Sid. WHY!?, The special attacks seem to take too little energy; they may be overpowered
Excerpt: Final Fight is the best game ever made. If you don't agree with that statement, consider the following words: Bred, Andore Jr., G. Oriber, Edi E., Two P, and, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, Metro-City Mayor Mike Haggar. These are some of the most unforgettable characters in gaming history, and they all appeared first in Final Fight.
Conclusion: Il n’y a donc aucun doute sur ce jeu. Malgré son âge, il reste une référence dans un genre un peu oublié sur les consoles nouvelles générations. Une réalisation impeccable et une maniabilité tout à fait adaptée à la Game Boy Advance et facile à prendre en main font de ce jeu un achat indispensable. Certains seront rebutés par un gameplay un peu vieillot, d’autres seront heureux de voir que la « jadis » borne d’arcade tient dans le creux de leur main.
