Marvel vs. Capcom 2

Overall: An action packed 2D fighter with a strong emphasis on huge hitting combos. Very fast paced and tons of fun for any fan of the genre!

This is the type of game that you can never get tired of and will still pick up a few years from now just to pull off some sick 100+ hit combos.

Originally intended to be on XBL, it got online play cancelled somewhere along its way. Capcom vs. Snk 2 offers XBL play, so you would think this game would do it as well, but alas, who can understand the mind of a game developer?

Gameplay: Well, gameplay is pretty straight forward and closely resembles all those classic 2D fighters you remember playing. One good twist is that each round is a match of 3 on 3 fighters.

Very short (2-3 second) loading time per match. Over 55 characters are available, however not all at the start. The game will keep you playing just to earn credits. These credits are then used to purchase new characters, stages, artwork and more!

Controls are quite responsive and the button config is quite simple. the A,X,B,Y buttons are used for high and low punches and kicks whereas the triggers allow you to call in other teammates to assist you in your combo moves.

Graphics: Sadly, this is a part of the game where you can start to see how outdated some of the character models are. Sometimes not looking much different than they did on your SNES in Street Fighter II!! The 3d backgrounds are quite nice however and go well with the 2D sprites kicking !&%$@#* in front of them.

Capcom seriously needs to redo the artwork for their characters for their next game. However, the animations are all well done and things run smoothly even with the screen turning 15 different colors as a Hadouken blast fills half the screen :)

That said, we could definitely have seen something much better on Xbox, but I guess Capcom wanted to stay true to the arcade version.

Audio: The music sounds like a jazz lounge and is definitely an acquired taste, and after 5 minutes I had decided I wasn't going to do any acquiring. Luckily, the music can be turned off in the option menu.

The sound effects for kicks and punches all seem spot on and include the classics that you'll remember from Street Fighter II at the arcade.

No 5.1 and no custom soundtrack support. These could have made the game better, but not there this time.

Suggestions: Rework the 2d character models. Add some custom soundtrack support. Add XBL support!!

Overall Score: 8.0 / 10
