When all that silicon juice gets fired up, the Saturn comes close to duplicating the visual and audio razzle-dazzle of a $20,000 coin-operated machine. Thus, it’s only fitting that of the six Saturn titles now available, two — Daytona USA and Virtua Fighter (included with the Saturn) — are versions of games that have already proved themselves, quarter by shiny quarter, in the trenches of video arcades. At heart, Fighter is just another brawling game. But the action has been dressed up with 3D-rendered characters, meticulously detailed animation, and swirling camera angles that result in a visceral, unnerving combat experience that’s as much fun to watch as it is to play.
