Summary: Admittedly Magic Sword is a more of a distraction rather than a must play game although the whole package has been put together superbly well and offers a hell of a lot of enjoyment as single player games but even more so as multiplayer offerings.

Excerpt: Final Fight Double Impact brings us two of Capcom’s greatest arcade classics in one affordable package. Final Fight has changed little since arcade inception in 1989, you control one of three heroes over a multi-level fighting fest to save Metro City’s mayor Haggar’s daughter from a group of criminals calling themselves Mad Gear.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Like many others of my generation, I have a special fondness for Final Fight. For me, this was the game that got me hooked on to arcade machines.

The graphics and music are old school and are preserved through the transitioning of these titles to next generation platforms. The lack of a harder difficulty and the unlimited continues makes the game a bit easier then it would have been if you played it back on the arcade.

Actually, I don't think I had that memory. I wonder how many people did?
Excerpt: The Final Fight franchise has had a weird history. Despite the success of the original arcade game, two classic SNES sequels, a truly startling amount of memetic impact on Internet gaming culture (at this point, I'd imagine more people know about Mike Haggar from online humor than from actually playing any of the games he was in), and a big chunk of the cast migrating over to various Street Fighter games, the series itself has gone almost nowhere in the last twenty...
