    Do NOT download this game. They completely fucked it up. You can NOT play against people online or offline. The sound fucks up too, badly. Avoid it at all costs.

    Wow, that sounds really bad.

    Joe, did you read that or did you have the misfortune of finding out first hand?
    I saw two new games to download: Fatal Fury Special and Cyberball.

    Cyberball should have been good (if they didn't mess it up) but there was no choice: Fatal Fury all the way.

    A friend of mine had the misfortune of buying it and finding out first hand. The only multiplayer that we could get to work is if both of us were on the same team. I downloaded the demo and promptly deleted it because of the sound glitches. A quick check of the sites shows Gamespot had the same problem, but they're the only ones with a review right now.

    Amazingly poor quality control on that one.

    EDIT:
    From IGN:
    "Your opponent will always be the computer. You can play the game co-operatively with a friend both offline and on, but you can't play head to head against another person. The standard Cyberball cabinet in the arcades had two screens and allowed you to play head-to-head with another person or team of two. Why Midway and Digital Eclipse decided to emulate the single screen version of Cyberball is a huge question mark."

    Totally lame. Why did they even bother?
