| Uninspired, but a fun distraction for 15 minutes
One of the few Sonic the Hedgehog video games to be made for the arcades, The Fighters is a virtual clone of Virtua Fighters, and just as easy too. Set across 8 familiar levels you face off against friends and foes (Sonic beating-up Tails feels just wrong) collecting a chaos emerald for every match you win. The emeralds are irrelevant as you never becomes Super Sonic.

I finished this game on my first try after 15 minutes. The fighting is generic and overly simple and each round will last approximately 20 seconds. Sega have made some brilliant fighting games, but AM2 ought to stick to racing.
