    A good but flawed port of the arcade game, August 24, 2010

    I absolutely loved the arcade game Final Fight. My cousin introduced me to it while we were in the arcade at this resort our families were staying at. I played the hell out of it and was excited when one of my friends picked up the SNES port. It was a good port but unfortunately it went through a few changes that drew some ire from gamers during the early days of the SNES. Final Fight for the SNES is based on the arcade beat em up game. The graphics were crisp and clean. The sound effects and music sound great. You had your choice of 2 characters: Mike Haggar, the mayor of the fictional Metro City and former pro wrestler(big character) and Cody, boyfriend of the girl who was kidnapped by the bad guys(slim character.)

    However, as stated above, there were some changes made that hurt the SNES port. First off, the arcade game had a 2 player co-op mode that was taken out of the SNES version. Playing this game on your own is fun but it’s a blast when a second person joins in so it hurts the game as a whole. The arcade version had 3 characters to choose from. Due to limitations on the cartridge, the third character (Guy, a friend of Cody) was cut out completely. Also, due to limitations, an entire stage was cut out of the SNES port. Lastly, to keep with Nintendo’s “family friendly” policy, the names of two boss characters were changed from the arcade version to avoid anyone being offended. The arcade version featured prostitutes who attacked you on certain stages and were replaced with male escorts on the SNES port. I’m not sure how having male escorts coincides with Nintendo’s “family friendly” policy but stranger things have happened.

    While Final Fight for the SNES was a good game, the changes above keep it from being a classic, must own. A few years later, a better and uncensored version of Final Fight was released for the Sega CD with extra modes to boot. Pick that one up or you can try to find the GBA version of Final Fight which restores almost all of the changes made to the SNES port.

    Final Fight is one of my favorite games of all time. When it hit Arcades in 1989 it was an instant classic hit. It came before Double Dragon and Streets of Rage and spawned many clones (a lot from Capcom like Alien vs. Predator and Cadillacs & Dinosaurs), which tried to gain on the success of this awesome game. Some played great like Konami’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men, and The Simpsons. Some were terrible like Irem’s Undercover Cops.
    Capcom can be forgiven for this somewhat shoddy port of Final Fight to the Super NES because it was their first game developed for the system and the Super NES was a new system at the time. This port removes the 2 player feature, Guy, the Industrial Stage (Stage 5 I think if I can remember), smaller sprites and the amount of enemies on screen at the same time. Also female thugs Poison and Roxy are turned into transsexual punks Cid and Billy, plus boss Sodom’s name is changed to Katana because Nintendo of America is so anal (pun intended! 🙂 ). Otherwise this is a decent side-scrolling beat-em up and one of the best you can find. If you don’t mind single player with only Haggar or Cody then you will enjoy. I recommend playing this game on MAME (emulation), going to an Arcade with classic games if you can still find one, playing Final Fight CD for Sega CD, Final Fight One for Game Boy Advance or getting Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 1 for PlayStation 2 and Xbox which has an Arcade perfect version of this game and others. Still this game is pretty good overall.
