Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 1 PS2 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Fatal Fury may have first arrived on the scene when the mighty Street Fighter II was still huge, but even so, the series’ historical significance should not be undermined. The Fatal Fury series was a precursor to SNK’s own beloved King of Fighters and had features which would become mainstays of that very series, and others that remain largely unique to it even in this advanced day-and-age.

Fatal Fury Battle Archives Volume 1

12 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Niche games are always hard to pin down and Fatal Fury Battle Archives Volume 1 (FFBAV1), a name that just spins off the tongue, is no exception. The game is a compilation of the coin-op classics of Fatal Fury 1 through 3 and Fatal Fury Special, the series being noted as the first game to incorporate “two-plane fighting” in a 2D setting.

  • Excerpt: If you are a veteran of the late 80’s or early 90’s arcade scene then you no doubt have heard the name Fatal Fury. Back in the arcade glory days Capcom and SNK had a friendly rivalry that spawned some of the greatest 2D brawlers ever created. While Capcom milked the Street Fighter series SNK branched off into other fighting areas and games. SNK started it all of with Fatal Fury. There were 4 Fatal Fury games in the series, but that was many years ago.

Auracore MediaWorks
19 October 2007
  • Summary: Four times the fury at a discount price, no quarters required
  • Pros: Some of the catchiest tunes to appear in a fighting game series; fighting on three plains was innovative for its time and still plays well today; each game has been faithfully emulated to work on your PS2; not as mind-numbingly challenging on the easier difficulty settings; introduced gamers to Mai Shiranui and the Bogard Brothers
  • Cons: Graphics are not as good as other SNK titles; some special moves are too complicated to pull off; no online gameplay and no real extras to speak of; collection does not include Real Bout or Mark of the Wolves; does include the original Fatal Fury; introduced gamers to Geese Howard

Expert Review

The Laser
18 October 2007
  • Summary: The package itself is fairly decent, and delivers plenty of action at a value price. Each game has been emulated flawlessly, right down to the classic AES boot-up screen and logo. The games load very quickly and there are no pauses between rounds which keeps the arcade-style flow of each title intact. Fatal Fury Battle Archives' sole disappointment lies in its lack of extras.
