The glory days when Terry Bogard was a proper hero and had importance
29 February 2012
Summary: Just as I said I love all Fatal Fury games including WA and MOTW'S. I love the Real Bout Series and this game brings back when Terry was still a hero and important and things were one on one and not needing teams to fight. I love the graphics the colors the specials...in honesty the Fatal Fury characters look better in the real bout series than they do in KOF. Sighs I wisk Playmore could revive Fatal Fury and give KOF a break.
Summary: Growing up my father bought me the first two Fatal Fury titles in the early 90's when they were only available for the Neo Geo. Due to the expense of the AES home carts I couldn't afford the future release of the Fatal Fury titles as a single AES cart would cost upwards of $250+! Fast forward to the present, what used to cost $250 for a single FF title on the NEO GEO now costs only $15!
Summary: I have been a fan of the Fatal Fury series for a long time, and this set of three games from the Real Bout series did not disappoint me. The ability to customize your favorite characters' costumes is a great plus, I wish more fighting games of today could let you do that. Having a training session to work on some combos is nice, too. Also, how often do you get a chance to fight with some Mozart in the background? That should give fighting game fans something to go for!
Summary: Fatal Fury does not get the respect it deserves. It has mostly played second fittle to Capcom's Street fighter series. For the most part, rightfully so. But I actually found the Fatal Fury games on this collection even better than most SF games. Fatal Fury is famous for its multi-plane fighting style and its ridiculously cool lead character: Terry Boggard.
Summary: I used to have these games on an import for the Sega Saturn and by far this is the best port, EVER. No loading time between matches, classic 2D fighting, color edit, and your choice of sound tracks: Original or Arranged. You just can't get a better Fatal Fury game than this bad boy. It even has a practice mode so you can perfect those combos in any of the three games!
Summary: Last year, SNK Playmore released Vol. 1 which cover Fatal Fury 1-3. These games, while fun for their time, played second fiddle to Capcom's Street Fighter II & its upgrades. So when the Street Fighter Alpha series debuted, SNK (SNK Playmore circa pre-2001) countered by making over the Fatal Fury series, renaming it Real Bout Fatal Fury. This collection cover that part of the series. If you played the earlier games, you'll noticed a huge number of changes.
Summary: here it is!, volume 2!. now we get into the meat of the series. the previous volume was ok, but this is when the visuals are nice, sharp and complete with nice moves and specials. ive always been a fan of snk games since i was younger.
Great title for fans of the Fatal Fury series or SNK in general

Summary: It contains all the arcade "Real Bout" games and they are all very good. But it really is just for fans. People with no previous experience with this kind of "old school" fighting games will probably get bored quickly. Other than that, I hope SNK will do a volume 3 of this series, with Dominated Mind, Wild Ambition, First Contact anf Mark of the Wolves. The other four Fatal Fury games.
Summary: Fatal Fury Battle Archives Vol. 2 continues SNK's current stream of compilation games of the various franchises, and compiles three more titles in the Fatal Fury series. Real Bout: Fatal Fury, Real Bout: Fatal Fury Special, and Real Bout 2: The Newcomers are all featured here, and are all re-produced in all their Neo-Geo glory.
