Pit Fighter has to be the worst fighting game of all time. First of all, the graphics are really crappy. Everything has a grainy look to them, and the fighters don't even have faces! The music (if you want to call it that) is annoying and keeps repeating itself throughout the game. The way the fighters sound is pathetic as well. They all sound like they're choking on something when they are attacking. The animation in this game is choppy (seems to move at 1/2 frame a second) and its common for characters to just "glide" across the screen without moving their feet. Sometimes the enemies slam you without even showing an animation for it, you just somehow land on your back. But the worst thing about Pit Fighter is the awful gameplay. The controls are unresponsive and the collision detection is out of wack, as attacking enemies is a matter of luck and not skill. You have a choice to play as 3 different fighters that each have their own special moves but they all control like crap. If all of what I mentioned about this game seems like fun to you, then go ahead and torture yourself by playing it. Otherwise stay clear of this PITiful game.

When someone mentions the word "Pit-Fighter" to you, you'll either jump with joy or grit your teeth. Some love it, some hate it. I happen to be one of those that love it. Originally released in arcades in 1990, Pit-Fighter featured real life character models in the game, and introduced 3 player co-op. It was a fighting game that allowed you to move in 8 directions to avoid your enemy's attacks. You could even pick up various weapons to deal a great amount of pain on your opponents. You fought in the underground to earn cash. Why did you want this cash? Because you were money hungry, duh. Well, 2 years after thousands of quarters were fed to the many Pit-Fighter machines across America, home versions were finally released. In 91, the Genesis received an excellent port of the arcade game. You can read about that in my other review. However, the Super NES was cursed with a version that doesn't even begin to do the arcade version justice. I pity the kid that received this version as a Christmas gift one Christmas morning in 1992. Oh, what a terrible Christmas it must have been.

Gameplay: 1/10

The excellent gameplay from the arcade version is not present here. Nope, instead we get Hell. After you pick your character, (There are 3, Buzz, Ty, and Kato), you begin the first match against "The Executioner". This guy is probably going to be the only enemy you ever see in this game. Why, you ask? Well, because the game has an impossible difficulty level. First off, there are no options to change the difficulty, and even if there were, I'm sure it'd still be impossible. See, the game makes the computer knock you down, and once you are down, it's over. The computer will then continue to jump and smash your limp body until you die. There are NO CONTINUES.

You first selects as one of three pit fighters to compete against a slew of amazing brutal pit fighters (a whole 7). This is your normal fighting game, no blood, no fatalities, the only difference is that there is more of a playing field, you can move around the total pit, rather than just moving left and right on a platform like other fighting games. There are pretty simple moves, punches, kicks, sweeps, yada yada, which make the game get old really quick. The only good thing about the game is its huge challenge and special rounds, such as when you must fight tigers! Rent it, don't buy it.

Pit Fighter for the arcade was one of several games that used digitized graphics and real live actors to portray the fighting and the crowd animations that created quite a buzz during the 1990s. It also had great controls so you could easily get into it and drop lots of quarters. It was definitely fun and I beat it a few times. Then this port came out for the SNES and my friend unfortunately bought it, thinking it would be just as fun. It's not.

The graphics are horrible to say the least. They are choppy and bland ; they do nothing to capture the mood and the intensity when you fight your opponents. The controls are very rigid as if your character resembles a tank. Forget about the sounds because most of it was cut out so you get inferior versions of the music and muffled sound effects. Because of the controls, the port is a lot harder than the arcade version.

Stay away from this, even if you are curious to look at this hot, flaming mess. Instead, get yourself an emulator and track down the rom for the arcade version. Peace.

As some of us know, Pitfighter was a horrendous arcade game back in 1990. So horrendous it warranted multiple home ports. This being the lousiest one. Let's begin. So you push start and choose your "pit-fighter" and fight against other "pit-fighters". I say pick the kickboxer. Upon starting you fight this Executioner guy who dry humps you upon losing. To beat him, all you do is mash the A button until the "EXEC." is done for. Yep, that's ALL YOU DO IN THIS GAME. No strategy. But the gameplay isn't just neutered, EVERYTHING from the arcade version is not present. No 3 player, no extra characters, and more importantly, no fun! The music takes the suck spectrum to a whole new level. It loops over and over and over again to the point as to where you want to throw the TV out the window. All in all do NOT buy or rent this game. It's wasn't worth what it cost at launch' it's not worth 50 cents, it's not even worth a penny. Oh, if you think the SNES version was bad, check it out on Game Boy, it's far, far, far worse.
FINAL JUDGEMENT/SCORE:
1/10
