Free online games are becoming quite popular these days, but most of them are based on medieval imagery and feature very similar content: magical spells, sword fights and other typical RPG elements.
Zzang Street brings some originality to the online gaming world by presenting a classic side-scroll fighting game, very much like those good old arcades we used to play a few years ago. Being online, Zzang Street enables you to fight against people from all over the world and also make use of its extensive social component: chat, messages, buddy list, etc.
The game looks very promising, but unfortunately it fell short of my expectations too soon. First, I had some connectivity issues that seriously affected gameplay (I was kicked out of the server a couple of times). Then, I found characters' movements to be limited and poorly rendered. Finally, fights tend to get repetitive too soon. Even enemies all look the same.
Summing up, what could have been a great online fighting game sadly evolves into a mere online socializing tool that doesn't take advantage of all its gaming possibilities.
