Fatal Fury Special is a classic fighting game and a quick completion if you remove the patch. It's a shame that the multiplayer part of the game can glitch.
There are three ways to finish the arcade mode:
- You can play legit and learn how to master the game and beat the Arcade mode without losing.
- Remove the patch and enter cheats to make you invincible. Press + + + at the same time to enter the cheat menu and choose the settings you like.
- Remove the patch and change the dip codes to unlock all 5 arcade mode achievements in under five minutes. Check this thread for more details.
The dip codes and the cheat menu are built in the game and this is not considered cheating. You can use this without getting banned or get your gamerscore reset. It's perfectly fine and legal to use it.
WARNING! Three of five multiplayer achievements can glitch and there is no way to prevent or resolve the issue. It is purely luck based whether you get the achievement or not. There are many ways to tackle the multiplayer part of the game but unfortunately no way leads to a 100% sure unlock.
You can play 100 legit mulitplayer matches or you can boost the achievements by letting the other player quit the match. You can quit the game as soon as the fighters walk in on the character selection screen. This will count as a win/loss.
You will most likely still need to unlock Mai's Folding Fans and Flying Kim Bonus. Check the Achievement Guide for more details.
Fatal Fury Special is a very easy and fast completion if you remove the patch. The game would be better if the achievements wouldn't glitch.
