Worst licensed fighting game

Post by Treguard » Tue Oct 13, 2015 12:53 pm

I was listening to the Retro Asylum Star Wars episode earlier, and they were talking about the load of poop that is Master of Teras-Kasi, the Tekken style beat-em-up where hitting people with a lightsaber is equivalent to punching them. And while it's bad, I still think it's a better use of a license for a fighter than my personal dislike: Justice League Task Force. A game where you can beat Superman, and in fact every character by repeatedly kicking them in the shins so they fall over, letting them stand up, doing it again and then carrying on like that until they die. And has a plot involving your character travelling round to meet other heroes round the world, and being continually surprised they've been replaced by robot duplicates. EVERY TIME. I like to play as Batman, as he's meant to be the Worlds Greatest Detective and have him go 'OMG AQUAMAN IS TEH ROBOT' is strangely amusing. Thought I'd do a poll on it, added a few more options, but all gripes re equally welcome...

Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects was absolutely woeful and gets my vote. How EA f***** this up so badly I don't know. I did a write up on it here if anybody is interested:

BUT WAIT!!!
Fighting Fury PS2 is based on Grappler Baki (characters and names altered because next to nobody knows what it is) and thats really bad

For some reason, I've owned this on PAL and NTSC-J before. I had the Japanese version after the PAL version and I was like "NOOOOOOOO..." when I realised what it really was :lol: . Dreadful game.

I like this on both Arcade and Sega Saturn. Fun to play although it feels odd at first.

I would have added a Dragonball game, but what I know about Dragonball Z wouldn't fill the back of a postage stamp. I do know it doesn't have mid 90's mullet hair Superman in it though, so thats a plus.

The reason the Star Wars game is so panned isn't because it's particulary bad, it's because it shits all over the licence.

Anyway, the worst licensed fighting game is Highlander on the 8-bits; nothing else comes close.

^Most Star wars license do that anyway

ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS!!!

Dragonball evo = The film that was like thy overheard somebody talking about two completely different series then only heard little bits of DB "He has spiky hair, is good at fighting"
Ive heard of people changing things to fit in with the film but with Evo they didnt even try

What about Shaq Fu.

As for turtles tournament fighters, the genesis version is horrible but the Snes version is a completely different game and is really really good.

I also had a lot of fun with Wrestlemania the arcade game as well.

Although Justice League Task Force is undoubtedly a bit crap and very slow, I kind of like it.

Well, it wasn't technically licensed, was it? Capcom's IP, made into a film, Capcom made the associated game.

Another vote for that game. Woeful game that had terrible gameplay and equally terrible new characters. It was a gut punch that I went from Marvel Vs Capcom 2 to this :(
