Martial arts guru Bruce Lee died when he was 33-years-old, 21 years before this game was released. Based on the marginally well-received biographical film, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story for the Super NES is a fighting game in the tradition of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter II.
You can choose from the one- or two-player story modes, which are a progression of fights that follow the film's storyline, or the one-, two-, or three-player (if you have a multi-tap controller) match modes, which are simply head to head battles. In each of the modes of play the computer controls the villains, which include a chain-wielding sailor, a chef armed with a meat cleaver, a kickboxer named Scott, a staff-wielding female acrobat, a pair of muscle-bound brothers, the appropriately named Claw Man, and The Phantom, whose Kwondon can be lethal.
You and your friends must play the game as Bruce Lee. Bruce is capable of pulling off a variety of fighting moves such as flying kicks, roundhouse kicks, shin kicks, somersaults, flying chops, throws, and forearm smashes. When he has acquired enough Chi (by connecting on a certain number of hits and kicks), he will acquire and lose some fighting moves and gain access to a pair of nunchukas.
In a bonus round you can beat up on Pete the Dummy to acquire extra Chi and extra points. Other options and features in this game include movie sequences, game speed variations, difficulty levels, and fighter handicaps. Unlike most other fighting games of this type, often times you'll face multiple opponents simultaneously. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
