…and discovered it wasn’t as bad as I remember it was…
The artwork (aside from Bison having black eyes with white pupils…) is fairly decent (though the colors are overall lighter than they should be…)
The plotlines aren’t that bad either once you get past:
- Zangief isn’t a bad guy (neither is Sagat, really. At least after all the retconning CAPCOM has done)
- The main character is Ryu, not Guile (and his name is pronounced REE-yuu, not RYE-you)
- SF isn’t G.I. Joe
- All of the rest of the inaccuracies that were carried over from the movie
- How does Balrog type with boxing gloves on? (And where’s his sidekick? You know, that little yellow thing…)
I have yet to get to the ep where Guile and Bison have to team up against goofy-voiced Akuma yet though…
Also, Guile getting thrown around by giant Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Dee Jay and Blanka would make a great av.
Finally, if Chun-Li yells “FIREBALL!!!” one more time, I’m going to Zanretsuken my T.V. It’s Kikoken, you bitch! KIKOUKEN!!!
