Martial Champions is a hand-to-hand combat game similar to Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat. Players can choose from ten selectable characters, each with special moves and weapons. A weapon can be knocked out of a character's hand and picked up by his/her opponent. Whoever wins the best of three falls advances to the next round and the next character. The characters in Martial Champions are diverse and come from many different countries. Typically, in one-player games, the challenger faces his/her opponent in the opponent's home land. In two-player games, the arena switches at random, usually meaning that neither character is on his/her home turf. ~ Anthony Baize, All Game Guide
