As far as King of the Monsters and King of the Monsters 2 goes, I saw them listed as wrestling games. Having not played them myself, would others consider them fighting games?

Also, what about Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story? I've seen it listed as fighting, 2d platformer, action/adventure, beat-'em-up, so on and so forth. Opinions?


dragon is a pile of steaming shit.

Heheh, you know if I made a movie, I'd probably have to throw in a dozen or so Rocky or Bloodsport homages. Or maybe pull out all the stops and do something with Gymkata.

If I can get my hands on a digital camera, there will definitely be pictures. As of right now, I've got 18 titles, and there are 16 more that I know I have to get. With 34 SNES games just sitting there...well...yeah. I recently brought my collection to a small LAN party and got quite a few compliments on it, and it's only going to get more impressive. Of course I want you guys to see it!

I was also thinking about sitting down and playing through all of them, then writing about which ones were the sleeper titles that nobody ever played, though I'm quickly discovering there really aren't that many quality fighters among them... Maybe I'll get lucky with the next ones.

Also, I emulated Dragon to see what it was like. It truly is crap, but it's got a feature or two that I really like. Getting to fight Death for more continues? Hey, it's original.

Ok, I looked it up. The title is "Ultraman: Towards The Future," and it apparently made Screwattack's Top 10 Worst Fighting Games List, coming in at number 2. Ouch...

If I remember correctly, and it may be colored heavily with nostalgia, but that Power Rangers game is actually pretty good.

I was quite surprised about it, it's been one of the more expensive fighters, usually averaging about $12.00 That's about the same as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fighting game. I managed to find a good deal for about $6.00, but I'm actually looking forward to giving that one a shot.

Ok, update time. I recently acquired several titles via Ebay.

Art Of Fighting
C2: Judgment Clay
Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story
Power Rangers Fighting Edition

They've all come in, so I've added them to the list. I've also made a few more orders, so I should be getting these titles soon.

Clayfighter
Fighter's History
Justice League Task Force
Street Fighter 2 Turbo
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters
Ultraman: Towards the Future

I've also got bids out on copies of Clayfighter: Tournament Edition and Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls. Hopefully I'll win them, shortening the list even further.

I was quite pleased with the Power Rangers Fighting Edition. I took some time to run through it, and it's actually a very competent fighter. It has an eight character cast, multiplayer for 2 people, it controls well, no issues with framerates or anything. The only real gripe I could come up with was the lack of music(you hear the Power Rangers theme for just about everything), and a lack of stages for background(Even I get tired of looking at Zordon over and over again), but when they do change stages they make sure to keep true to the size of the megazords you're fighting in. All in all, I actually really like it.

I think I remember enjoying the Power Rangers game when I played it at some McDonalds a long time ago.
