I didn't care for the last Fatal Fury, but this one does justice to the name. Hidden fighters, lots of personality to the characters and pits are just some of the cool aspects. RBFF is intense, both in speed and pyrotechnics. The warriors are detailed, complete with comical before-fight animations. The pits are hilarious instead of deadly. Combos can be found, but for the most part aren't automatic. Everything about this game screams greatness, animation, sound and graphics. Wow!
Neo-Geo has done it again! With so many fighting games under its belt, it would seem hard to come up with a fresh idea for a new title or even enough variation to keep the players coming back for more. In Real Bout, old players with a new twist seems to be the theme. A few of the new features include level pits, new combos, tallied by a combo counter and not only background ducks, but foreground as well. It's a great game, but it may take some getting used to.
I have been a Fatal Fury fan for quite some time, and I have to say that Real Bout Fatal Fury is the best in the Fatal Fury series. The new added pits at both ends of each level are a welcome feature. Unlike the previous Fatal Fury titles, RBFF seems to be more comical, not to mention more detail has been put into the characters, including a complete personality overhaul. If you are into SNK fighting games, Real Bout Fatal Fury can't be passed up. It's tons o' fun!
This game plays a lot easier than many Neo games (maybe too easy) with forgiving controls and very simple combos (some using multibutton taps). The graphics and sounds are typical high-end Neo, however there aren't many new characters. They compensate for lack of new players by the diversity of extra moves and strategy associated with all the old players. With features like super and comeback moves, ring outs and multi-level playing, this is a fast and furious fighter.

Real Bout is the latest in the long line of SNK fighting games. It brings together the cast of fighters from the Fatal Fury series and adds a few new faces as well.
Like before, each challenger in the competition has a slew of special moves and a near-death attack that can drain half of an opponent's life. With 16 fighters in all, you can be anyone from Andy Bogard to Geese Howard. If you're a Neo fighting fan, this is more good news.
