Final Fight Double Impact
7 May 2010
Summary: Final Fight Double Impact brings together the original Final Fight and Magic Sword arcade games - not two Final Fight s as the title implies. Both come with online multiplayer and an in-game arcade motif that comes closer than ever to visually recreating an arcade cabinet on-screen.
Conclusion: Final Fight: Double Impact is a very good port of two classic games by Capcom for next gen consoles. The added online feature lets you play with the world is a welcome addition to the original game.
Summary: As I sat in front of my big-screen television playing Final Fight: Double Impact, I was struck by its authenticity. This is hardly the first time we've seen Capcom's classic brawler hit a home console.

Cons: Can't pause an online game, Both games are rather short, No truly new material
