After the excellent Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Gametek strikes again with a brand new title from the Sega hit called "Brutal: Paws of Fury". At first glance, the game resembles a standard beat'em-up featuring a cast of twelve characters whose design is largely inspired by cartoons, which is the complete opposite of other games such as Mortal Kombat or Way of the Warrior where the characters are digitized.
Speaking of special moves, I probably misleaded you when I said there are no special moves. In fact, this beat'em up game probably has the most number of possible moves with up to nine per character. Contrary to all expectations, those moves are not fire balls, electric bolts, or other deadly attacks, but rather they tend to be derivated from sports like karate, kick-boxing and others. There are no blood scenes or dismembered characters on the screen because in this game fighting is more of a sport like boxing or judo, and is not used only for survival.
As an arcade game, Brutal features fast graphics for an excellent gameplay and a great soundtrack of techno music that enhances the action. The characters, each represented by a different animal, have an original cartoon-style look that will appeal to both children and teenagers.
