A lot of the pages you'll be seeing in the Arcade Action section will highlight the very best of our JAMMA/AMOA coverage. One of the most impressive games shown in Japan and Texas was Armored Warriors. It's a Final Fight-type game with a twist.
Some moves of the mech-type beasts you control are executed with Street Fighter-like motions. This is a new feature you'll be seeing in sidescrolling games from Capcom for home systems. The game allows you to choose from four different mechs, all with excellent powers of their own. Just the way these mechs are drawn is a sight to behold. There are the obvious, normal weapon/special weapon controls, and three people can play at once. The game is not all Final Fight oriented. There are also high-speed arcade scenes where you move at a high velocity incinerat ing everything in your path. If you enjoyed Aliens Vs. Predator, this game is leaps-and-bounds better. One of the obvious improvements is the complexity of the end Bosses. The normal mechs you can choose from are incredible, but these monsters are sometimes four or five times your size, and fully animated. There are also detailed backgrounds for all four characters: Rash, Justice, Gray and Siren. Overall, this game will appeal to fans of Final Fight and Street Fighter and is sure to blaze through the arcades within the next couple of months.
