Yes, there was a fighting game.


Why the hell is it not popular? It looks like so much fun!

I never played it, but I've listened to the soundtrack and it's impressive.

...I saw a cabinet for it about a year and a half ago at a now-closed local arcade, I regret never trying it out.

I think I might actually have it, though I've never played it; I vaguely recall it being on Sonic Gems Collection, which I bought entirely for Sonic CD. My GameCube's in storage and I haven't got a working controller for it anyway, though.

This game is quite funny! Metal Sonic and Robotnik/Eggman are quite tough though.

One of my favourite Sega fighters.

And yes, it's on Gems Collection for those of you who have it.

From what I saw, Eggman's a pushover if you spam the punches as soon as the fight starts.  :derp:


Metal Sonic, however, I do agree. He looks pretty tough.

Mmmm, I remember this having a cult following, but I guess it just wasn't popular enough with mainstream audiences for it to get that much recognition.  Or at least, that's how it was over here.  Not sure how it turned out in America, but from what I hear it probably suffered a similar fate.

Which is kind of sad, really, as I kind of see this as almost a spiritual predecessor to things like Smash Bros.  I guess it'd be nice if it got more recognition than it did, but oh well.

Sega should totally relaunch this title. I know I'd play the hell out of it.  :3

Very similar yes, but it lacks the armour mechanics of Fighting Vipers.

Fighters Megamix is cool too, though the Daytona USA car as a playable character is funny.

I like the physics in Sonic the Fighters. They're so cartoony and exaggerated, it makes me giggle. It's especially funny when in the replay you see the character's expression when he/she gets their ass kicked.  :3

You mean The Power Battle / Power Fighters? Those aren't really fighting games... they're more like boss rushes with slightly more depth. Not as fight-y as StF.
