um it fucking sucked?
i know it had to start somewhere and there's a novelty in seeing the earlier forms of so many of my favorite fighting game characters but holy shit. it's a wonder that any of these fighting game series became so big and are kicking today seeing how some of these earliest games are, even accounting for the time of release.
i love how this has a massive roster (for a first game in a new series) but there's shared moves and voice overs all over the place. there's not really any characters i would've removed but i'm glad pretty much everyone came into their own after this. it was a bit bleak here lmao.
