Trivia

Nintendo had very stringent censorship morals when this game hit the Super Nintendo. As Damnd's name was too close to the word "damned", his name became Thrasher. Likewise, Sodom's name became Katana (most likely because the name could be taken as a Biblical reference or because it sounds too similar to Saddam (Hussein.)) See more »

One of the greatest games ever made.
27 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the one I remember the most ever when I played it for the first time in a laundromat in my neighborhood on a hot, sunny day YEARS ago. I was utterly flummoxed by the graphics, sound, and game play, and it was one of the most challenging games I ever played; often begging a relative for more quarters to pump into the machine. So throughout all the years of playing video games, this one was the one I played the most. It was just so exciting, beating the even immortal Double Dragon, which was a predecessor to side-scrolling beat'em ups but "Final Fight" was the best out of them all. The sequels that followed were utterly disastrous and unconvincing and "Streets of Rage" were trumping them already. However, there's just no denying that "Final Fight" is the original that can never be topped and will always be fondly remembered than any side-scrolling beat'em up that has come before and after it. It was the game that drove me into fighting games. More so than not, it was also one of the best gaming experiences of my childhood. Love it. Simply just love it.
