BackgroundThis quirky game can best be described as part martial arts and part animé. For the most part Phantom Fighter is a Kung Fu, punch and kick 'em up game, but there's a strange twist. Instead of fighting human enemies, your opponents are bizarre Chinese ghosts called Kyonshies. The games designers placed a heavy emphasis on graphics, so fans of Japanimation will enjoy this game for the modeling alone. The background Chinese music keeps players in character for the length of the game. Best played with the lights out, Phantom Fighter is a welcome addition to the martial arts game library, and yours.
