  "Disc shot."
 
You can feel the lost animation and FX in this skimpy-feeling port of the Neo*Geo arcade fighting game. It still plays okay, I guess, but doesn't feel great, and the load times--there's even a load screen between a match and your character's win quote--don't help.
 
This port doesn't allow you to map attacks to the shoulder buttons, which is a bummer for arcade stick users who'd have liked to map the attacks to a full four button row, like the game was set up in the arcade.
 
One nice feature here is that it will save your stage when you end your game, so you can pick right back up where you left off.

There *is* red blood in this localization, although the sprites are flickery and hard to make out.
