Blackjack is one of the iconic gambling card games.  It’s super simple; keep drawing cards until you get as close as you think you can to 21.  If you get closer than the dealer without going over 21, you win; if the dealer or if you get over 21 (bust), you lose.  What if you took that simple but iconic card game and merged it with an iconic fighting game like Street Fighter II?  Enter Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo: The Card Fighters, the game that no one asked for and fewer people needed but we got nonetheless.

The character select screen looks pretty much exactly like Street Fighter II.  You have a variety of characters from all over the world from whom to choose although it is worth noting that your character selection makes absolutely no impact on gameplay.  The game from there is just different blackjack matches against random characters in different themed casinos all over the world.  To win, it doesn’t matter how much money you have as long as your opponent hits $0 before you do.  Whether you win with $10,000 or $50, the outcome is the same.

​The visuals definitely harken back to Street Fighter II on Genesis.  Beyond the allusion to that classic fighting game, though, there’s nothing particularly noteworthy or memorable about it.  The characters all feel pretty generic and don’t have anything interesting to make them stand out.  They’re just bland.  Not bad, mind you, but not especially good.  It feels like the game was made specifically for the sake of “lol it’s like Street Fighter but it’s blackjack!”

Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo Edition: The Card Fighters is totally competent as a blackjack game, but it’s nothing special.  It’s not like how Golf Story was a golf game but went far beyond that; this is a blackjack game, and it stays nothing more than a blackjack game.  I got it on sale for $1.99 which is a fair price in my opinion, but it normally goes for $7.99 on the eShop, and it’s definitely not worth that much.  $2.99 is about the most I could recommend paying for this one.  It’s totally okay, but it’s not going to give you more than half an hour of entertainment unless you’re a SUPER hardcore fan of blackjack.
