It's been twenty years since millions of gamers sank two quarters at a time into Final Fight. The game saw sequels, spin-offs, and an awful 2006 reboot that got flushed down gamers' collective memory holes. And its characters have made cameos in several other Capcom games, including the upcoming Super Street Fighter IV. If you're wondering what the hubbub is about, look no further than Final Fight: Double Impact. It's a new downloadable title that contains a retooled version of the classic brawler with drop-in/drop-out online co-op and the 1990 arcade game Magic Sword. Jeremy Zoss reviewed it for us, and here's what he said:
"Final Fight: Double Impact is the type of stacked tribute to retro games that we rarely see these days. It’s packed with plenty of bonus material that provides lots of incentive to revisit a classic, and it’s a great chance to bring an obscure brawler to new audiences. It maintains the elements that made Final Fight so much fun 20 years ago, while updating it to today’s technology. Compared to what Capcom offers in this package, most of those other retro ports hardly seem worth the time."
