after a few weeks of play here is my Fatal Fury break down. I will break the KoF series next.
#1 Fatal Fury MOTF: Most fluid animation of all time in Fatal Fury. Got rid of the 2 plane system which is a plus for me. 10 years in the future of FF series but lack of characters such as MAI is a huge complain. Best FF to date, best gameplay. Awesome SPECIALS and COUNTERS and TOP. Simply the best. Another big complaint, I CANT USE THE ANALOG STICK unlike RB imports.. MOTF forces you to use the D-PAD, not as responsive to HCF/HCB IMO
A - I MISS MAI :,(
#2 Fatal Fury Real Bout 2 - Fastest gameplay of the real bout series. Minor detail updates from RBS. Gameplay changed the 2 plane system where you step in the 2nd plane and not stay in it like RBS and 3. Not my favorite.
#3 Fatal Fury Real Bout Special - Could be considered the best one depending on your preference. I like the 2 plane system where I can stay and do moves and can leave and join and fight in the planes.
#4 Fatal Fury Real Bout - Only Fatal Fury of all time to have a RING OUT!! Which is cool verse your friends and cheesy verse the computer!! 2 Plane system of steping in and out and not staying.
#5 Fatal Fury Special - Slower gameplay then the real bout series. Also no specials, but this version and 3 allows for desperation attacks. Nothing really new from the previes version 3. The movelist is also not as responsives as MOTW and RB series. Graphics arent as fluid and good as RB series.
#6 Fatal Fury 3 - See Above Fatal Fury Special
Really the Real Bout Series are the same with different updates to each one. The fact RB2 has a slightly smoother faster gameplay is the reason its ahead of RBS but RBS has the plane system I enjoy way better then the step in step out step in step out hit step out run accross screen step in hit. Let me know what you think!
