Product Description

Set ten years after the death of Geese Howard in Real Bout Fatal Fury. Mark of the Wolves introduces Rock Howard the son of Geese and protege of Fatal Fury staple Terry Bogard. With the exception of Terry Bogard, the entire roster for Mark of the Wolves is new. Most characters are either the children or pupils of the fighters from previous games. In the case of Rock Howard, he combines some of the best moves of both Terry and Geese. Mark of the Wolves is also the first game to use the 'Just Defend' technique, which allows players to recover a small amount of health and break opponents' combos with carefully timed blocking.

By Paul M. Walsh on June 18, 2005
Mark of the wolves is classic 2d fighitng at its best. Everything about this game is well executed and the fighters are neither overpowered nor underbalanced. The Graphics look a little pixilated, But considering the type of game and the amount of character animations it is easily overlooked.

The way the characters work is wonderfull. You won't be doing 25+ hit combos Like in some of the new 2D fighters. The interaction and balance really takes the forefront here. Learning the timing for jumping, combos, and use of special moves really becomes nessecary or else you will be getting a major pounding from your opponent.

There are a few things to consider though before purchasing.

1) This game is hard. Very Hard. If any of you remember the Arcade version of "Street Fighter 2 Turbo" sucking away your quarters you know what I'm talking about.

2) You realy need to invest in a joystick to play this game. The Dream Cast controler just doesn't cut it here. You really need to use "Super Moves" to be effective against the CPU and you have to pull them off reliably and effectivly. Some of the super moves require lots of directional input, and the regular controller is going to leave you frustrated. (Dream Cast Joysticks are a cheap buy these days at about 10$ USD)

Overall this game is great. Old 2d fighting fans who pumped quarters at the arcades will be getting top notch difficulty and quality. Newer gamers or people beefing up their Dream Cast collections will get an excellent 2 player fighing game to play with friends and family, althouth the single player experience might be a bit too hard.

Graphics (10/10): Arcade perfect. That's the best way to put it. This game looks exactly like the original Neo-Geo game, down to every frame of animation. All the characters have been drawn with lots of color, detail, and personality, and it won't take long for you to find one or two that you really click with.

Sound (9/10): There's a few great tunes in this game that play in the backgrounds of the matches and menus, but the best song in the game is the one that plays in the opening cinematic that introduces the characters. Also, the game gives you the choice to choose between arranged tracks (which sound really good) and the original chiptune tracks. Both sound excellent.

Gameplay (11/10): This game plays beyond perfect. The movement is so smooth that it puts hot knives through butter to shame. Just the feeling of jumping around feels so natural that you'll find yourself doing now and then just for the hell of it. SNK learned a lot about fighting games over the years, and all their hard work culminated into making the combat in this game as tight, responsive, and deep as possible. For casual fighting game fans such as myself, you'll be able to figure most of the special moves and combos with some practice. However, if you are a high skills professional level fighter, this is a very technical game with many aspects to the combat that, once mastered, will always give you the upper hand.

Overall (10/10): This game is a definite must own for anyone who owns a Dreamcast. For those who are wondering, it does work with both the VGA box and the Arcade Stick. Is the game worth the high price it commands today? It absolutely is.

Fatal Fury Mark Of The Wolves is a great fighting game because it's easy to play and more fun than some of the Street Fighter games.The only returning fighter is Terry Bogard,but the other fighters are well balanced and the super moves are easy to pull off.This Fatal Fury game is different from the other ones,this game is equal to SF 3rd Strike.This game is unlike the SF games because the fighters have all good moves,SF games have great characters,but most of them have charge moves and that sucks.The story mode is awesome,but it's so chessy.This game has great sprites when a move is performed and has one of the best backgrounds ive seen a 2D game.

The survival mode is hard and the most challenging mode in the game,their isn't that many different modes,but it's still one the best SNK fighters out there.I will recommend this game to any fighting fan who likes 2D fighters.This game has one of the best graphics,it looks like a cartoon.
I play this game with my Hori joystick,this game is not as fun with the normal controller.

Pros: well-balanced fighters,easy to do super moves,fun and easy to play, backgrounds are well drawn,story mode dialogue,not as frantic as MVC games,arcade perfect

Cons: no returning fighters except Terry,could use more modes,story mode dialogue

For one of the final games of the original SNK run and one of the few games that SNK touted as a 2-D masterpiece, it is a sure-fire hit. Yes, I said that also about Last Blade 2, but this is its sister game, and boy, is it worth the money. The gameplay is simplified, yet familiar, taking a page out of the Street Fighter Alpha and SF3 series, the characters all have a connection to the days of Fatal Fury Past, the graphics are phenomenal, and the presentation is superb. My only regret: they didn't make a sequel to this or Last Blade 2. Oh well. Making due with these is good enough for me. Get...this...game!
