Released in 1990 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), Final Fight is a side-scrolling beat 'em up game that became a defining title in the genre. Set in the fictional city of Metro City, the game's narrative centers around three heroes: Haggar, a former professional wrestler turned mayor; Cody, a skilled martial artist; and Guy, a ninja with quick moves. The story kicks off with the kidnapping of Haggar's daughter, Jessica, by the nefarious Mad Gear Gang, prompting the trio to take to the streets to battle the gang and rescue her.

Final Fight on the SNES adapted the arcade's side-scrolling gameplay, where players move through various urban environments, from slums and subway stations to the interior of a luxury high-rise. The objective is straightforward yet compelling – defeat wave after wave of enemies using a combination of punches, kicks, and special moves. Each character has his unique fighting style, with Haggar being powerful and slower, Cody being well-rounded, and Guy (who was actually not in the initial SNES release but added in later versions) being fast and agile.

Visually, Final Fight impressed with its detailed and colorful sprites. The character models were large and well-animated, showcasing Capcom's ability to create a visually appealing game. Each level had its distinct aesthetic and background, contributing to the game's immersive urban atmosphere. The soundtrack of Final Fight, while limited by the SNES hardware, managed to capture the essence of the arcade experience. The music was energetic and fitting for the game's fast-paced action, enhancing the overall experience of street brawling.

Upon release, Final Fight received acclaim for bringing the arcade experience into the home. It was praised for its graphics, engaging gameplay, and strong character designs. The game became a benchmark for beat 'em up titles and inspired numerous sequels and spin-offs.
