I don’t know who came up with the idea of using zany claymation characters as subjects for a fighting game, but it’s not a bad idea me thinks. But was it executed well? Read here to find out.

Has anyone played the Clayfighter games? There were five: three for the Super Nintendo and two for the N64.

As one might guess, the N64 games are superior to those of the Super Nintendo, but Clayfighters 2: Judgment Clay is still a pretty good SNES fighting title, in my opinion.

Never played any of them, but I remember seeing the ads for them in video game magazines. I thought to myself back then developers will try any gimmick they can to capitalize on the Street Fighter II craze.

The characters in this series really do look over the top.

I played Clayfighter around the time it was originally released. As kids, we kinda laughed at the corny jokes, but it didn’t go much farther than that. I mean, how were you gonna waste time perfecting your Bad Mr Frosty game when SF2T was clearly the fighting game you should be playing?

I’ve played the sequels as an adult, and even as somebody who can appreciate games on their own merits, they are at least somewhat underwhelming.

Never played the N64 games.

Agreed. But didn’t just about every fighting game contemporary to Street Fighter II try to capitalize off of the craze? A new formula had been born. Samurai Shodown might be the best / most original of the lot, but even adding weapons doesn’t change that they were merely rearranging the classic set-up. 

Still, the fact that you were able to discern that at a young age means something. 

I’m currently reviewing Riddick Bowe Boxing, only to find it’s a very close lifting of Evander Holyfield’s Real-Deal Boxing from the Genesis the previous year. Come on SNES, how about some innovation!!!

Now Uniracers, that’s an innovative SNES title.

I played a few of them, the two 16-bit ones and CF 63 and a third or whatever it was on 64. I didn’t mind the 64 one if I recall, though I only played it a few times. The others were OK I guess, not bad but not in the top tier of fighting games available to the system in my opinion. My fave character was Blue Suede Goo and sadly he was dropped from the second game.
