With all the adult games that Japanese developers come up with, it's no surprise that this game came into existence. Enter Strip Fighter 2 for the PC Engine; the game where all the fighters are women. Forget about Chun-Li and Ling Xiaoyu; some of the ladies in Strip Fighter 2 go head to head in lingerie, high heels, and even snake thongs. Not only is there fighting, but winning rounds result in um… your viewing pleasure. I'm getting a light-headed here, so let's just get on with it.
the graphics on Strip Fighter 2 aren't that bad. Keep in mind that this IS on a 16 bit machine. All six fighters are drawn pretty well in my estimation. Both facial and body shots are competently rendered (even though only four of the six women qualify as attractive). Each character comes with her own identity and garments (if any). From eagle head-pieces to fur boots with cow patches, you'll find variety in every character. During the animations of the characters,
The controls are unresponsive at times, which lets the computer beat on you relentlessly. There were times where I thought I ran out of jump kicks. Punches, throws, and blocking are simple enough to pull off but special moves are difficult to execute.
Despite the shoddy controls and loose gameplay, this game is actually an adequate fighter. I own it.
