Final Fight and Magic Sword 14th April 2010
Final Fight: Well for me its going to be ” finally I get to finish the fight”. When this came out way back in 1989 it was a huge hit in the arcades. Me and my friends couldn’t get enough of it but we could never reach the end as we never had enough money between us to get there. After you were defeated you would see yourself tied to a chair with the timer/dynamite ticking down which I remember being quite scary back then we would start fumbling for more coins frantically. We think it must have been set to Hard or Insane…or at least that’s what we are sticking with anyway!
If you have never played the game here is a quick synopsis:
Theres a selection of three characters; Guy, Cody and Haggar. It’s a side-scrolling beat-em-up style game, something along the lines of ‘Bad Dudes’ or ‘Double Dragon’ but better quality.
Magic Sword: This is again along the same lines as Final Fight but with more of a ‘Golden Axe’ feel. I preferred Golden Axe at the time so I didn’t put as much playing time into Magic Sword but it looks good.
You get both Final Fight and Magic Sword for 800MS points and both games share the 200 acheivement points between them seen here.
