  • Summary: Classic arcade action is unleased on the Game Boy® Advance system in Final Fight One. There's trouble in Metro City. The members of the Mad Gear Gang have kidnapped the mayor's daughter Jessica and the clock is ticking. The mayor, an ex-street fighter himself, calls in the big guns to help, enlisting the iron fist team of Cody and Guy. Now, it's a race against time to scour the city, defeat an army of the Mad Gear Gang's minions, and rescue Jessica before it's too late! Expand

    The graphics are superb for a GBA game, with colorful characters that take up a good chunk of the screen, and bright, detailed backgrounds.
  2. The best home conversion yet, better than the Sega CD version, and possibly the arcade. [Winter 2001, p.50]

    It's not an entirely deep game, but it's very satisfying from start to finish.
  4. Simply put, Final Fight One is the arcade game shrunk down to portable size. It offers nothing more or less than what you'd expect from such a transformation.
  5. Repetitive, primitive and even a bit tedious...and I dug every minute of it. [Nov 2001, p.220]
  6. It may not be flashy, the gameplay might be incredibly unsophisticated and repetitive, and the whole game is certainly showing its age-but it's still fun.
  7. 60
    Final Fight One's AI is cheaper than a bottle of discount wine.

    Aah, this brings back some great arcade memories. A great conversion of a great game. Even better than the super nintendo versions, since you get all three characters plus all the original enemies from the arcade game. Great graphics, great gameplay, great action, what more do you want?? Expand

    Love this game! Spend a sh*tload of money on the arcade version when I was young. And now You can play it anytime, anywhere :) It's a shame that roxy and poison are missing though. And I would have liked to see more of axl kicking butt with slash. But other than that, it's a peace of old school heaven on your gba. Final Fight was the first, and is still the best!! Expand

    Fun side-scrolling fighting games, almost the same as the arcade original. There is a reason that even used copies of this game go for $20 today even though the game was released 12 years ago. This version can be played on any of the Gameboy systems that supports GBA titles like the Gameboy SP, DS and DSlite, etc. Great game, but getting harder and harder to find it for cheap. I personally feel this game is better than many other games of it's type like Streets of Rage. Expand

    Sreets of rage came second and was clearly influenced by final fight! (a bit too much). But both are classic beat em ups! This conversion is arcade perfect! quality game. you can also play alpha characters from the street fighter games if you play it enough and kill enough blokes. Collapse

    AIEEEEEEE! Average Streets of Rage clone! Give it a good kicking! Let's just hope it gets better as it goes along...

    Nice graphics, very true to the arcade. But I thought this game was boring. It's been collecting dust ever since I bought it.
