Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (SNES) Game
Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story is a 2D fighting video game developed by Virgin Interactive for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1995. The game is based on the movie of the same name. Although it follows the storyline of the movie, one would have a difficult time understanding what’s going with just the game.
The player controls Bruce Lee in the major fighting scenes from the film. The character can fight using martial arts moves. Through these moves, the chi meter fills up. Chi can be used to do special moves for better damage.
Players get three chances to continue whenever they run out of health. When these three chances are used up, Bruce Lee must fight the Phantom to try again at the current level.
Aside from playing the storyline, there’s a VS mode available wherein three players can fight on a free-for-all battle.
The graphics of Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story are what one would expect from a game ported in the Super NES. Character design is not that good because it seems like the developer only worked on Bruce Lee and skimped on the others. As for character movements, they are not smooth and seem to be choppy, especially certain fighting moves.
The sound effects for the fighting moves are realistic. Sounds are different for different fighting moves and can be considered realistic. As for the music, it is appropriate but quality is not the same level as the sound effects.
Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story can be a fun game for those who are fans of the genre and the movie. The game can be quite challenging with lots of replay value in trying to beat the game. Although there’s the VS mode to keep it from going old, once you beat the game, there’s not really anything left to do with it.
Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story has been ported to SNES (this version), Sega Genesis, and Atari Jaguar.
