HVS produced a fighter that feels like a self parody, a fighter that seems like it's laughing at you for owning it and one that serves as a humorous reminder as to the fighters of yesteryear. On the N64 or PS1 this would fit right in. But it's 2010, and so ToL looks and plays like a title that time forgot.
Unfortunately, thats exactly what will happen to ToL. With the infinitely more enjoyable (and humorous) TvC, SSBB and even Virtual Console fighters on Wii, don't waste your hard-earned here.
