Art Of Fighting 2
This is one of my favorite Neo CD games. The Neo-Geo is still the only system that has generated character sprites this big while still maintaining excellent control. The camera zooms can get a little disorienting, but it doesn't detract from the gameplay.
The arranged CD music track is an improvement over the cart music, with my favorite being Yuri's stage. One of the more original features of the game is the spirit meter which can be depleted and refilled. If you have a full spirit bar, you can unleash special attacks that require most or all of the spirit energy.
Unique individual endings and a hilarious special ending on the higher difficulty level make AOF 2 extremely replayable and a recommended purchase for Neo-Geo CD owners.

What can I say, Neo fighting games keep getting better and better. The graphics and sounds are unbelievable. The moves are also quite impressive The computer plays very cheap, performing damage and charges you can't do. There's a lot of technique to this one and I recommend it. Now if SNK could get that price a bit more reasonable. Hmmmm. By the way, look for a lot of hidden moves, too!
The Neo-Geo certainly has its share of fighting games. AOF 2 comes off as being pretty impressive. The first one had cruddy control and just wasn't much fun. It's nice to see these problems were fixed The new characters are great and everything just looks, sounds and teels terrific. It would have been great to change characters between rounds. If you need another fighting game, AOF 2 will keep you happy.
Art of Fighting has pushed the original game further with better graphics, fantastic music, and sound. The other new fighters to choose from are a refreshing addition to the group The Same Player Versus Mode is also a very cool feature The problem I had with the game was that the computer played a little unfairly, even when the difficulty level was turned down. Fighting fans should still check this out.
Forget the first one--this sequel has improved on the original tenfold. This time around there are more fighters, more moves, and much smoother zooming-in and out. The "Haz" meters have been retained from the original, and they add a nice strategy to the standard one-on-one fighting routine. One problem though, the computer can be incredibly cheap when you play against it, but with two players it's a blast.
