Art of Fighting 

 

Art of Fighting is an older fighting game that has a style all its own. Some parts of this NEOGEO Station game shows its age, and others could have been developed recently. We will get to those in a just a little bit - I promise. There are not many fighters in Art of Fighting so that stuck out immediately. The fighters that are here are huge, and have a lot of attention to detail.

Art of Fighting has a real shocker when it comes to the graphics. The losing fighter looks all beat up. In fact the damage done to their face is sickening. I understand this is realistic after getting pummeled. The victor should also show damage unless they got a perfect. Which is nearly impossible even on the easiest setting. The animations look good in this game, although I do question the collision detection.

The music is amazing in Art of Fighting. I really like it, and feel like it can compete with many current day fighting video games. The music is the real shining start of this fighting game. I am not so thrilled about the special effect sounds which are a lot of hitting, and kicking. There is an interesting story in Art of Fighting about a man trying to find his kidnapped sister. This was back in the day when you had to do it for yourself, not rely on the government to do it for you.

The few selectable fighters is one of the drawbacks to Art of Fighting. There are not a lot to choose from when you are playing with a friend, or someone online. There are a lot of other games out there with many more selectable characters. I understand that Art of Fighting is true to its NEO GEO game, but I have to compare it to current games (around the same price). Players also only get so many continues which is not very friendly in my opinion.

I mentioned the collision detection earlier. That is the most frustrating part about Art of Fighting to me. I would jump towards my opponent with a kick, and he would punch at the last second doing me damage, and him none. I would think someone falling from above with a kick would do some damage to someone kicking all of that weight coming at them. There are some difficult fighters in Art of Fighting, and in my opinion they fought very cheaply. Add in the few continues and you might make it to the second fight. I found Art of Fighting to be extremely frustrating.
