|This is Konami’s version of the brilliant Way Of The Exploding Fist. A very similar player versus player fighting game.
At first glance this game looks a little more impressive than the previous game. The backgrounds are brighter and more colourful. The character animation is faster, more varied and much more fluid.
However, when it comes down to actual gameplay I think Fist just edges out on a more physical translation of martial art combat.
For me Yia Ar is a little too cartoon-y in it’s presentation and style. Too much emphasis is put in flying through the air and doing the splits.
