What Is It? Despite its name recognition, Fatal Fury has never been a stellar fighting game franchise. The first game was sluggish and hard to control and the second game didn't go far enough to fix those problems. But Final Fury 3: Road to the Worst Subtitle in the History of Video Games is different. Finally we're given a cast of characters worth mastering, each with moves that look cooler than the last. It's not Street Fighter II, but it's the one Fatal Fury game worth owning.

Does It Still Hold Up? While the basic gameplay hasn't changed much since Final Fury 2, this third installment feels tighter and has a stronger cast of characters. The graphics are also sharp, featuring highly detailed sprites and special moves that really pack a wallop. The game modes are nothing special and the music has to go, but Fatal Fury 3 is a great fighter that manages to hold up.

Is It Worth The Money? Even if you weren't a fan of the first two outings, Fatal Fury 3 is worth the nine dollars. I could spend the next three paragraphs laying out a case for why you should buy this forgotten gem, but the truth is that I know that you're already hungry. It's been six months since SNK uploaded a fighter to the Virtual Console, and The King of Fighters '95 wasn't exactly the fighting game of the year. I can see it in your eyes; you're ready for another fighting game. Well don't hesitate, because Fatal Fury 3 is easily the best fighting game to hit the Virtual Console all year.
