For non fans £12.99 might be a bit steep for what is a mostly poor gathering of 2D fighters, especially when there are other much better anthologies available for the PS2. Videogamer can't really recommend the game at full price, but if you can find it a few quid cheaper and you're a fan of 2D fighters it's definitely worth a punt, but only for Art of Fighting 3.
Yes, Ryo is a complete Ken rip off. And yes, 66 per cent of the game is rubbish. But there is fun to be found in Art of Fighting Anthology, if you know where to look. Don't take those goggles off just yet. Some things change, but some things stay the same.
