Storyline

10 years ago, Jeff Bogard, Southtown's greatest martial artist, entered the King of Fighters tournament. He beat every one of Southtown's best fighters, and won. But the crime boss Geese Howard interrupted his winning ceremony and demanded that he fights Bogard. In the midst of the furious fight, Geese kills Bogard without any remorse. 10 years later, Bogard's sons Terry and Ady, and their friend Joe Higashi, entered the KOF tourney to swear vengeance against Geese for killing Bogard. Will they avenge Bogard...or will they lose? Written by Ricky Khoury (Doraemon_88@webtv.net)

Fatal Fury
10 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fatal Fury is the first in the series of SNK's fighting game legacy. It features 3 playable characters, Terry, Andy and Joe, and they have entered the King of Fighters tournament to defeat Geese Howard who killed Terry and Andy's Father 10 years a go.

The music at times is good and even great, especially at Raiden's and Geese's stages. But the sound effects are utterly ridiculous. Terry sounds ridiculous at the pitch his voice reaches when he shouts out "Power Wave" or "Burn Knuckle".

Graphically, the game fares a little better but not by much. The characters are drawn pretty well, but animate poorly. Richard Myer looks especially jerky in his animations. Other graphics aren't that great, either. The Power Wave effect is by far the worst incarnation on the Neo Geo. The backgrounds are pretty decent, though, but some of the animations are recycled frequently in them. At Michael Max's stage, you'll swear you're seeing a multitude of twins cheering the fight.

Looking for a Fatal Fury game to enjoy? Play Fatal Fury Special (Best of the original series), Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers (What I call the Street Fighter Alpha of the series) and Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Sure, SNK evolved Fatal Fury into these games, but Please ignore this one. Start your Fatal Fury experience with Fatal Fury 2!
