    The last 2D fighting game on the Dreamcast shined brilliantly like a newly polished blade.
  2. Thanks to its solid gameplay and stylized look, it holds up well enough, even three years after its debut on the NeoGeo.
  3. Obviously dated, lacking the elaborate stories and special modes of many current fighting games. Still, the gameplay covers up the inadequacies in most respects.
  4. It's a piece of 2D history, and one that no DC owning fighting fan should be without.
  5. While the game seems to have lost some of its luster since coming out 3 years ago (cripe...I feel old...), it's still a solid fighting game.
  6. An excellent compromise between old-school SNK fighters and faster-paced, more fantastic Capcom titles on the DC today. [Oct 2001, p.148]
  7. Far from an awful game due to its relative depth and difficulty. It just doesn’t do anything we haven’t seen before.
