    This game is a very easy game once you get used to the controls...It was a great game when it first came out.

    I don't know if this is a fighting game, or a wrestling game, even though there is some elements of martial arts...

    When I got this game, I was first surprised to see that you could from over 70+ characters. Most, of course, are hidden and must be earned to get them. Same for the stages. The fact that there is variety is a major plus ... Read Full Review
