Neo Geo CD Version Review:

For a full review of this game, click here -->

There are a few small additions on the Neo Geo CD version of this game. You now get the option to view two different versions of the short introduction sequence, the standard one featuring Rick and another one, which features the other new character Li Xiangfei. The best addition though, is the new survival play mode, where you try to defeat as many other characters as possible without dying. There are three power-ups in this mode that you can collect while fighting too (a bit like Samurai Shodown), one which restores your life bar, another adds extra time and the third one increases your power gauge.

There's also a VS mode for two players. In this mode you can choose "1 line" or "2 line" battles. 1 line mode stops you from sidestepping between the top and bottom of the screen. If you don't like it (it's one thing that many people dislike about Fatal Fury) then that option is for you. Otherwise, just leave it on 2-line mode.

Apart from those differences the game is basically the same as the arcade/home cartridge versions. One thing I want to mention is that those versions had some of my favourite Neo Geo music and obviously this version has a CD quality soundtrack. In a way, I do like the original arcade music on some of the stages more (not sure why), but many of the tracks on this disc are REALLY good and stand out as being some of my favourite Neo Geo music! I especially love Mai and Billy Kane's stages, which are excellent.

With the extra features and the fact that Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 is a great game anyway, this is a CD that I would definitely recommend buying. I bought it, so it has my seal of approval if that means anything to you! :-) The only negative side to the game is the load time, which (like most of the newer CD games) isn't too great.
