Final Fight Arcade 1UP Cabinet REVIEW – Worth The Money?
Final Fight Arcade 1UP

The Final Fight Arcade 1UP is a perfect reproduction of the arcade favorite. Its 3/4 scale is a great compromise between footprint and playfield height and size.

Specifications

The cabinet works with all the other 3/4 cabinets and is even a perfect addition to an AT-Home MAME cabinet or Virtual Pinball machine.

Also includes 1944, Ghosts ‘N Goblins, and Strider!

This was not a great day for gaming, but I wasn’t expecting much when I first bought this. I love the Final Fight games, so it’s cool to have this finally in my hands.

The controller is an exact copy of the original arcade machine and they made it smaller so it fits into a stand up arcade), but in this one it’s all you need to play the game.

History

Final Fight (ファイナルファイト Fainaru Faito) is a 1989 beat-em-up arcade game developed and published by Capcom.

It is the first game in the Final Fight series. Originally released as an arcade game, it was ported to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) home console and later re-released on the PlayStation Network and Virtual Console services.

The story follows former pro wrestler Mike Haggar as he goes on a mission to rescue his daughter Jessica from the Mad Gear gang, who have kidnapped her under orders from their mysterious leader Belger.

He is assisted by Jessica’s boyfriend Cody and Cody’s best friend Guy.

Great graphics

Aside from being a smaller reproduction, it features full-color side art and colorful marquee graphics. All of these touches live up to my nostalgia for the game and help preserve that feeling by making it feel like I’m playing an authentic port of the arcade version

Final Fight Arcade 1UP comes with Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, and Final Fight (along with two other games). It did look like a pretty decent game, though there were no instructions or anything on how to use it.

I didn’t really have time to read those either, as this game came with only 2 controllers (1 for each player) and all of the games had the controls for their respective games on the side.

If you wanted to use these controls for other games you’d have to buy your own controllers and connect them via USB ports or Bluetooth so that you can control them from inside the arcade itself (which is another review on its own).

Both the machines and game controllers are wonderfully designed, and they’re a surprisingly good value compared with other arcade machine options. The sound quality is pretty excellent too, although we can’t speak to how closely it resembles the real deal.
