Battle Monsters, a new beat-'em-up for the Saturn, hops right into bed with the likes of Capcom's Dark Stalkers. Choose from one of 12 nasty monsters to do battle with in order to be crowned the strongest monster. You can play as a headless dude, Frankenstein (or Death Mask, as he's called here), or Skeleton, to name a few.
The characters were either rendered or actors photographed against a blue screen. As a result, they are nice to look at, but suffer from the same limitations as other 2-D fighting games. For one, the movement is choppy. With minimal frames of animation, the action tends to look sporadic. Also, the amount of moves that each character can perform are few and unspectacular. What we're left with is nothing more than Way of the Warrior with creepy monsters.
