The Nintendo 64 was a console bereft of top-quality fighters, and War Gods is the perfect example.
The game is based on Midway’s 1996 arcade game, and features ten uninspired fighters who must to compete to become the most powerful warrior on Earth, or some such whimsy.
War Gods is technically ambitious – it used Midway’s “digital skin” technology – and it evokes Mortal Kombat, but it has little of that series’ style or substance.
