Dark Legend -- Data East

Data East presents Dark Legend for the Sega Saturn. This 2-D fighting title features many characters, with each using unique combat techniques.

Well, the only thing that I am sure of in this game is that I didn't like it. It reminds me, graphically, of Samurai Shodown, but it doesn't have the play control at all. Let's face it, 2-D fighters really are on the decline, with rare exception... and this is not one of them.

Dark Legend is very, very Street Fighter II. The gameplay and graphics are every bit as good as the original Street Fighter - play may be a bit easier - but let's face it, Street Fighter II is dated. Wait to pick this one up used.
