One place where the graphics in Fighter Maker
shine is the special effects when hitting an opponent hard. There is this cool looking “ripple” effect in the air (something Sliders
fans would be familiar with). Overall, however, the graphics in Fighter Maker
are not as good as a lot of fighter games out there. Think the first Tekken
. The appearance of the characters and the backgrounds are simply less detailed than other, more recent, fighting games. Also, the models seem to have a lower polygon count than most other fighting games. This detracts from the fun of the game slightly, if at all, however. The fighting game itself is not the main attraction of this game. The fun of this game comes in the Edit option...
The sound in Fighter Maker, on the other hand, is actually quite good. In fact, the background music is a pleasure to listen to while playing. It’s hard to describe, but is up-tempo, and somewhat driving, yet with a nice oriental flair. (Okay, I know! I SAID it was hard to describe.)
