    Breathtakingly bad gameplay.

    Between the Genesis version and this one, i'd rather take the Genesis one.

    In 1990, Atari Games released Pit-Fighter on arcades. The game was known for its use of digitized graphics, which looked good. It was a succesful game. But, one year later, when Street Fighter 2 was dominating the arcade... Read Full Review
