  1. Weighing in at little over the price of an XBLA download (about a tenner from the right shops), Art of Fighting Anthology is a rare bargain - especially from new.
  2. Few companies like SNK could make games in this genre more enjoyable, and now we get to live some of our arcade glories out at home.

    And considering that the cost of the game is so low, it's hard not to recommend this to people just for nostalgia's sake. Just remember how old the games are when you start playing them, and you'll have a blast.
  4. This is certainly not the best anthology ever released, but the game can hold its own when standing next to some of the other very mediocre compilations out there.
  5. Overall, Art of Fighting Anthology certainly did not stand the test of time, and the titles definitely don't have anything on current 2D fighters.
  6. Therefore, we can only recommend this for hardcore fans of the franchise, but then again, we assume those people might still have the Neo-Geo with these games. And if you do, don't bother with this anthology: we repeat, it's nothing you haven't seen and experienced before.
  7. Playing The Art of Fighting Anthology is a little bit like rediscovering your 6th grade journal. It’s entertaining to relive those days and marvel at how far you’ve come, and certainly it has too much sentimental value to get rid of, but ultimately it’s too painful to look at for long, and really belongs in a box somewhere where you can forget about it for another fifteen years.

    How can you rate this game. It is exactly like it was 15 years ago. Nice nostalgia!

    If you know what this game is and you enjoyed it in the past, this is perfect for you.

Instead of messing around with your old neo Geo and ancient cartridges you now can have all of the art of fighting games for about 20 bux. Great Deal! Collapse
