Reviews for Eternal Champions

A fairly unique fighter

Playing this game on my Sega Genesis as a kid was a brutal challenge, These days its probably a bit easier to cope with, but as a fighter it is just as unforgiving as many other fighting games of the time period. It's no Mortal Kombat or anything like that. You're going to have to work to advance through the different fights. However, like Mortal Kombat, there are special moves that deliver gruesome yet rewarding kills for each level. The move list is a little larger than some games of that time, but it's not some elaborate modern fighter with 400 moves involving 68 button combinations. In purchasing this game, you'll get a pretty basic fighter with some unique characters and some entertaining encounters

A blast from the past

This game reminds me of an older street fighter-type game. The graphics, though poor, are in fact a nice blast from the past. It was quite a fun game to play! I would have liked more character choices, but the content they put in the game was more than enough compensation.

Overkill!

Back in the nineties Street Fighter 2 ruled the arcades but that didn't stop other companies from trying to emulate Capcoms success. While most of these fighting games were mere clones a few actually dared to be different and Eternal Champions were one of them. Featuring a roster of characters from all eras of history in a fight for a second chance the game took a few hints from Mortal Kombat with special moves called "Overkills" that allow you to finish off your opponent in gruesome fashion. While the controls feel a bit stiff it is definitely deserving of the classic moniker.
