Online play is the obvious addition for Live fans. While play is smooth, the number of current players is staggeringly low. The only other change are the filtered graphics, with no option to turn them off to their original pixilated glory. With those being the only edits, you can’t stretch the screen on a widescreen display.
This is a classic Geo game, easily catching up to the Street Fighter series with each new addition. While further efforts such as Mark of Wolves would become a new standard, Special’s simplicity makes it oddly compelling and easier to get into.
Fatal Fury Special is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB for Mild Suggestive Themes, Violence.
