Fun Fatal Fury Single-player Games

This is my list of which Fatal Fury games are fun and balanced for casual players such as myself in single-player. Since these games are generally very difficult for casual players, in this context 'better' usually means 'easier'.

Highly recommended:
- Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers (Neo Geo) - 0 continues on diff 1/8
- Real Bout Fatal Fury (Neo Geo) - 3 continues on diff 1/8
- Real Bout Fatal Fury Special (Neo Geo) - 0 continues on diff 1/8

The jury's out:
- Fatal Fury Special (Neo Geo)
- Garou: Mark of the Wolves (Neo Geo)
- Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition (PSX)

Not recommended:
- Fatal Fury: King of Fighters (Neo Geo) - Unfair - used >30 continues on dif 1/8
- Fatal Fury 2 (Neo Geo) - Horribly unfair - used >90 continues on dif 1/8
- Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory (Neo Geo) - Unfair - used >40 continues on dif 1/8
