It's a funny trend
that started in the late 90's... "make a fighting game character evil by
darkening their skin and making them more powerful". lol. The cliche was
old by the time Demon Gaoh debuted, but SNK has no shame. They did it again.
At first glance, he seems fairly cool... especially after seeing that official
artwork. However, in the game, his 2D sprite is pretty ugly and doesn't animate
very well. Ohh, and he's possibly the most overpowered, cheapest, piece-of-crap
SNK boss of all time. Even on the easiest setting (yes, I tried), Demon Gaoh is
a cheap piece of crap. His ugly-ass super move, with the "ghost ship"
or whatever, doesn't even have frames of animation..... and it takes off like
80% of your life. What. A. Cheap. Boss. The only reason SNK would make such a
cheap boss would be to get back at players for pirating their games back in the
day. It's the only logical explanation for creating such a blasphemy.
