Street Fighter: The Movie (The Game)
It’s the game based on the movie based on the game. What could go wrong? Everything if it’s this pile of Street Fighter. Considered by many to be the low-point of the Street Fighter series, the game used Mortal Kombat-esque digital imagery of the movie’s stars. The worst part of the game was the horribly non-SF style gameplay. The second worst part of the game was the super lame Blanka who looked sickly at best. The only good thing about this game can be seen in the image below on the right.
Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls
What do you get when you put the duo from Double Dragon into a fighter? If it’s the series creator and the game is on the Neo Geo, you’ll end up getting a solid fighter all around. If however, you license the name to a crap company and they just make a horribly bad Street Fighter knock-off that has nothing to do with the Double Dragon series, you get a garbage fighter considered by many to be the biggest embarrassment of the entire Double Dragon series.
Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi
As a geek and gamer I remember getting pretty excited about this game when I got my original Playstation and saw it on the back of the box. I popped in the PS Underground demo disc (remember PS Underground?) and was immediately shocked. Being the fool I was, I still bought it. Anyone who made the mistake I did learned almost right off the bat that this game made zero sense. Handicapped Jedi Knights and droids fight new characters with barely responsive controls. I still blame this game for Episode I. No, no. That movie sucked all on its own.
Like a lot of the games that were released exclusively on the Atarai Jaguar, Kasumi was a rushed title attempting to copy more popular games that were out on the market. In this case, the goal was to deliver Mortal Kombat on the Atari Jaguar. The only thing this game delivered was an extreme amount of virtual blood and laughable controls. Anyone who was unlucky enough to pick this one up will tell you the controls were barely responsive at best. Tack that on to the extremely limited moves and Kasumi Ninja was a loser right out of the gate.
This game was a big “Shaq Fu” (minus the Shaq) to the public. Yes that comes out to be just “FU”. If you were a child or teenager in the 90s, you were bombarded with Shaq media. Before he was a 300 lb joke in the NBA, he was a backboard breaking force in Orlando. For some reason this entitled him to make horrible rap music. On top of bad rhymes, Shaq invaded other media like our Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. I’ll just tell you the premise and you’ll figure out why this sucked. Shaq stumbles into a dojo in Japan while visiting for a basketball tournament. The fun writes itself from there.
