I was excited about justice league when it was about to come out, never played it in the day but played the ROM a couple of years later, ended up wishing I hadn't.

I remember the power rangers one as being good and I always hated the power rangers

Justice League Task Force has some good points, and some bad ones...mostly bad. For one, many of these characters don't have powers that translate particularly well to a 2D fighter. Aquaman would be particularly gimped, so they gave him special moves he doesn't have in the comics and let that be it. I only played one or two rounds, and from what I could tell, both Batman and Superman came out ok, but I'm gonna have to spend more time with it. It's not the best fighter I've ever played, but it's definitely not the worst, either.

As for updates, I got some new titles in:

Clayfighter
Fighter's History
Street Fighter 2 Turbo
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters
Ultraman

That's another good chunk of the list done.

Ok, managed to get Weaponlord and Street Combat at the same time! 2 more down.

And by the way, Street Combat goes above and beyond the call of duty in regards to crappiness.

Ok, Ultimate Fighter came in...

...and it's a Beat 'Em Up, so it's getting taken off the list. It does feature a vs. fighting mode, but that isn't the main focus of the game, much like the fighting mode in Turtles in Time was not the versus game. So Ultimate Fighter doesn't count.

Ok, so I'm in the process of moving and can't spend much money, hence the lack of new games showing up, but I've taken the time to do a little more research to see if I missed anything. So, after having found a few more titles, I need to know if any of you guys have played them, and if they actually meet the requirements.

Ballz 3D
Doomsday Warrior
Power Instinct

Let me know, thanks.

Ballz and Power Instinct are definitely fighters.
