Art of Fighting Anthology

Auracore MediaWorks
3 July 2007
  • Summary: This trilogy of games will bring back memories, it's too bad they may be ones you tried hard to forget.
  • Pros: Graphics still look good even with age; each game has been emulated flawlessly from their original versions; lad times are almost non existent; value price; still fun if you have a human opponent to play against.
  • Cons: Audio has not aged gracefully; controls are tight and can be unresponsive; AI is maddeningly challenging regardless of difficult setting; no extra content whatsoever; no online gameplay; little replay value beyond any of the single player modes

  • Excerpt: Once upon a time, Capcom’s Street Fighter series reigned supreme over the fighting game genre. Its small cast of easily playable (yet difficult to master) characters gave gamers a reason to spend countless hours at the local arcades and a small fortune in quarters in their zealous love of the games. But while Street Fighter II raked in profits and became one of the most critically acclaimed titles of its time, another fighting game series enjoyed its own following.

  • Excerpt: With the advent of online stores on the next-gen consoles, the old-school classics have returned to the limelight and adopted a state of nostalgic glory. And in addition to those worthwhile downloads, veteran companies like Capcom and Sega have been releasing collections of great franchises from the past quarter-century.

Art of Fighting Anthology

Gamecell
14 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Anthology includes what were actually three arcade games, later ported to the Neo Geo: The Art of Fighting, The Art of Fighting 2, and The Path of the Warrior: Art of Fighting 3. The newest one looks the best and probably plays the best; whereas the early games were just relatively poor Streetfighter wannabes, 3 seemed to have its own identity. You'll also open up the story of crooked cops and bloodthristy killers that sets the stage for the later "Fatal Fury" games.
  • Pros: Retro Streetfighter-style combat with some added weapons!, It’s cheap
  • Cons: 90s graphics and sound, Some characters seem way better than others, It’s really OLD, and looks it

Art of Fighting Anthology PS2 Review

DarkZero
12 February 2008
  • Excerpt: With the release of Art of Fighting Anthology, this is the perfect arcade port of this series of games. I can’t stress enough that these are arcade conversions and NOT console versions. For people who have only heard the name Art of Fighting will ask ‘What’s the difference?’ Whereas the others that have played both will know.
