- Yie ar kung fu -

One on one fighting games have been around since the beginning of computer games but their popularity didn't soar until the release of street fighter 2 with it's excellent graphics and gameplay. That doesn't mean that there were no good fighting games before sf2 and yie ar kung fu is definately among the better ones. The game puts you in the role of Oolung and you have to face several oppenents in single combat to win the tournament.

Gameplay is very straightforward, you start with the least powerfull opponent and if you win then you proceed to the next. Each character has his or her own style and attacks with some characters using weapons like sticks or batons. Hit them often enough to deplete their lifebar and you win but the same obviously goes for you as well. If you lose th round you lose a life and have to fave the same opponent again. Since this game is pretty old the artificial intelligence is a bit lacking and there is no such thing as attack patterns. There is also no combo system like you would find on newer games but these weren't introduced until street fighter 2. The graphics are pretty standard fare and the enemies are represented by very small sprites that are a bit low on detail.

Even though this game can't be compared to modern fighting games there are some faults with the game that shouldn't have been there. The game can be very unfair because when you get hit by one of the better opponents he can hit you so fast that you can't even escape and most likely you will lose all your energy. You can use this same tactic against the computer but he can outmanouver you in many cases. The controls that have been changed for the home versions make it more difficult to perform some of the moves as you have to press the button while moving in a certain direction. The game probably won't last you for very long but considering it's age it's not bad and worth a go.

Overal rating: 6.5/10
