Battleblaze by American Sammy is an awesome-looking SNES game set in-a fantasy realm of knights, warriors, ogres, and demons. This cart displays a great-looking fight, and the CPU will chop you down in no time.
The Hero and The Battle
You play as one of 6 warriors against the computer or a friend. Once you make your pick, you take on the remaining five fighters. The combatants feature specialized fighting techniques with Sword,
Lance, Daggers, Mace and vicious Claws.
The cart features two game modes, the Hero and the Battle. The Battle places you in an arena where you pit your skills against all the other characters in a best of two-out-of-three contests. If wanderlust is in your heart, you can play the Hero mode. It takes you on a fighting tour to beat the other warriors on their home turf. You battle for the honor of meeting an evil demon.
Battleblaze is one of the best-looking beat-'em-ups around, and the sound is above average. The cart features some outrageous graphics and animation. Fighting moves are vicious and smooth. The backgrounds are knockouts, and the sprites are extremely well-detailed.
The controls are cunningly cool. Each character has eight to ten different moves, which you can pull using combinations of only two buttons and the directional pad.
ProTip: When a computer player makes a leaping attack, you can always nail him on the way down.
Two-player matches are excellent. This is one of the few fighting games for home systems that lets you block your opponent's attacks. In one-player games, the CPU gives you a workout. It might make mince meat of intermediate fighters.
Battleblaze rewards aggressive behavior against the CPU. Always try to stay on the attack.
Go to Battle
Battleblaze will definitely grab your attention. Hard-core fighters will find the game challenging in single player mode, and it's absolutely great for head-to-head contests versus a friend. If you want this fight, go for Battle-hardened friendships.
