Take Out Your Aggression on the Streets

As the name suggests, Street Fighter Mugen is yet another addition to the popular Street Fighter series of games. While the first few games were praised for their originality, those days are long passed. Is this just another variation on a theme, or does Street Fighter Mugen offer gamers something new and different? Read on to find out.

From the moment it loads, Street Fighter Mugen explodes onto the screen with its cool graphics and cast of vicious looking characters. The game locations are more detailed than ever before and there is a new series of special moves for players to learn and put into practice. Although the learning curve can be a bit steep at first, experienced gamers should not have too much trouble figuring things out.

However, figuring out the special moves is no walk in the park. At first, players may find that they have to randomly push buttons until they get the result they want. Unfortunately, because this often happens accidentally, figuring out how you made the magic happen and creating the same effect later in the battle will not be easy.

Of course, the format is the same as in the other Street Fighter games and players simply pick their character and an opponent and go to work on taking them down. That is pretty much all there is to it and there are not really any new surprises in store for experienced gamers.

Although this game features some fancy new window dressing, there is no escaping the fact that it is rather similar to the other Street Fighter games in both concept and game play. This is probably just as well, because there are no instructions or tutorial to speak of. People who are not familiar with the world of Street Fighter could easily find that they become lost.

Despite a small number of new features, it feels like something is seriously missing from Street Fighter Mugen. Not being able to pause the game is a serious flaw that could easily have been remedied by the creators if they had thought of it. the game also has some bugs that causes it to lag from time to time, often when you are in the middle of a fight.

Pros

  • Engaging game play
  • Lots of new fighting styles to try out
  • A cool collection of characters

Cons

  • Not enough new stuff
  • Bugs need ironing out
  • Lack of instructions
