FATAL FURY SPECIAL (餓狼伝説SPECIAL)
« on: July 29, 2010, 09:34:54 PM »
Fatal Fury Special (餓狼伝説SPECIAL, Garō Densetsu Special?, "Legend of the Wild Wolf Special") is 1993 head-to-head fighting game produced by SNK originally released for the Neo Geo arcade and home platforms. It is an updated version of Fatal Fury 2, introducing several changes to the gameplay system while expanding the available character roster

If you like Street Fighter 2, Samurai Shodown, Fighter's History Dynamite or any 'old school' 2D fighting game, why the hell aren't you playing this game?!!! It's even emulated on GGPO perfectly!

What's so great about it? Well, it has a really good balance of defense/offense. With lane switching, you can count on not being dominated by fireballs. The game has tick throws but they aren't crazy like ST. It also has a simple but meaningful combo system. It also has a cool cast with interesting move sets. It also contains some of the most beautiful stages in fighting games ever.

Plane shifting is simple and can be done by pressing the :snka:+:snkb: buttons. When you are on a different plane, each normal attack you do will instead be a plane shift attack, which attacks your opponent on the other plane.
Blow back attack (similar to KOF's) is done by pressing C+D

General notes (WIP)

Pretty much every attack can be canceled except most far attacks
eg: Terry far D can't be canceled but close D can even though these moves share the same animation

Plane shift:
A and C  and B and D have the same animations. The lighter attacks travel faster although any strength will home in on the opponent.
Up to jump, down to roll. If you are in the foreground, you cannot jump and up will cause you to roll.
There aren't many uses for it and it can be easily punished by the opponent so this is why you don't see high level players using this all the time.

Great game.


I mean, it would be much better without some characters Joe, Mai and Kim. I guess Joe requires a lot of work but Mai and Kim can be pretty brain dead at times. The game is definitely balanced though but it's hard for new players to see this outside of Laurence's vortex and Krauser's D grabs or even gimmicks like Duck's tick into DM.

Still fun to play. When i get the chance i do but I'm still not very good. Grasping it slowly given how much time i can find opponents to actually play it with.

Because it was just recently copy and pasted from the thread on SRK

http://shoryuken.com/f308/fatal-fury-special-aka-best-game-you-arent-playing-right-now-224067/

once we get situated we'll get around to posting up notations and junk

Oh I see.

Hmmmm well what can I say about FFSP... it's alotta fun, and I'd even agree it is fairly balanced to an extent, although Kim is pretty damn BS in this game. I think Cheng is VERY underrated, I've been surprised by quite a few Cheng players before at their trickery. If I recall right, his DM's hitbox actually lasts while his big fireball dissolves on the ground, so it can still hit an opponent that foolishly walks over it when the think they are safe.

I like to play a little bit of every character in the game, although I have alot of trouble pulling off DM's sometimes, but then not many of them are all that useful. Geese's always gives me the most trouble to perform. I've seen video's where players could combo into it, but I just ain't fast enough to whip out that pretzel. Duck King has the best one I think, I've seen lots of nasty setups into it.

BTW, there is a difference between the weak and strong version of Kim's Hishoukyaku. The weak version travels at a further slope than the strong version. It's also possible to cross-up with the move sometimes.

Also Krauser has the best regular grab in the game - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7ynZvVoq2A

Anyway, still one of my favorite fighting games, I will take this over ST anyday

Well, I had problems with juubei, my friend keeps a heavy pressure, between the cookie and his dashing grab, I can't hold a breath

Chile, one day we could try though

Good game, though it has a few problems. Jumps are looong and floaty, some f + LP moves (Maaai) dumb, and lineshifting bogs the pace of the game down a bit IMO. RB1/2 got it right in different ways.

I read lots of times that lineshifting can be countered pretty hard, but I have never seen anything concrete about that. Anyone here can offer examples?

Also, I've never seen that second matchup list, where does it come from? What makes Joe so powerful, to the point he's considered to be better than Kim?
