With their Fatal Fury fighting series, SNK has been one of the few developers capable of remaining in the world of 2D fighting; most fighting game developers have moved on to the comparatively greener pastures of 3D. Breaking the mold on the PlayStation, Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition brings the 2D franchise to the realm of 3D — a first for the company on the home console market.
Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition uses interspersed CG animation throughout the gameplay. The CG is presented in an action movie-inspired format complete with starring credits. Moving to the world of 3D has brought out advantages of new animation via motion capture.
There are three gameplay options including the Arcade, Versus and Training modes. Players will face computer-controlled opponents in the story-driven Arcade mode; as always, each character has a unique storyline that unfolds with continued play. While the Versus mode will have you fighting against a human opponent, the Training mode is for novice players or those who wish to practice moves.
What fuels one's ambitions? Greed? Justice? In the end, it all revolves around whom you choose. Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition holds a roster of several returning favorites along with new characters. The four core characters behind the main storyline are back in their usual roles: Terry and Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi and Geese Howard have returned. The queen of bounce, Mai Shiranui, is also back in the action. There are 10 fighters in all, each with their own unique fighting styles, combo attacks and special moves.
Settle your debts, sign your will and strike on the road to victory. Your fury's out of control, and this time it may very well be fatal. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
