Overall: This is a brilliant game for all those street fighter fans out there. It simply puts all the Capcom characters and Streetfighter and various other characters together into one massive online fighting game. It is the only xbox live fighting game out yet and it is cool.
Gameplay: Gameplay is really good if you like the style of game. It puts all the comic superheroes and charcters from streetfighter together to form a cool beat em up game.
Graphics: The visuals r awesome. Not realistic wise but it really does go well with the type of game it is. You couldnt put the streetfighter characters into 3D, that would just be wrong. Still keeps a brilliant style of visuals though.
Sound: Sounds are ok. Its a fighting game so most of the sounds are hearing someone thudding off the floor after they have been owned. Still impressive. Some of the soundtracks are cool, like the old streetfighter ones on the SNES but some are a bit repetitive. Would have been a lot better with custom soundtracks.
Suggestions: Nothing, don't change the style of graphics because it works well, but if you want to add something into a sequel make a custom soundtracks option.

Overall: Well, this game is old, really old. Without LIVE, nobody will get for sure, or maybe some hardcore gamers that have not enough challenge in the arcade will take it to conquer the world. :)
Gameplay: Nothing special about it. You are in big tournement and fight for the meaning who is the strongest one in the world. You can choose up to 44 characters (some unlockables), choose groove modes to suit your best figthing-style. Challenging on LIVE is the way to go with this game.
Graphics: Visuals and effects is not the parts to look when you get this game. 2D graphics is no more these days. Yeah you can see some beautiful 32 bits effects but not really much of it.
Sound: Just the same as the arcade, Gamecube and the PS2 version. There are some cool background musics for your ears. IMO.
Suggestions: Make a 3D version of it and increase the number of characters to choose should be good. Also if you can do it, why not: Marvel VS Capcom & SNK ???

Overall: This has to be one of the best fighting games on the xbox. It's the only one with xbox live, and it's simply fun.
Gameplay: This game is great for new timer and old timer players of this. The controls are easy, there's about 42 charactars to start with. Now this great.
Graphics: I do enjoy the capcoms 2D graphics. The levels and backrounds are nice but the people in the game don't look good.
Sound: The music is annoying in all levels and the sound effects aren't the greatest.
Suggestions: Make another one.

Time Will Tell
Date reviewed: November 8, 2003.

Overall: Its just a great game to play with friends. You can play for hours in multiplayer while i dont have live i want to get it just for this game
Gameplay: The arcade mode could have been better or at least longer. It was really short and how bout an actual story behind the game.Not just a tournament. The survival mode is fun but towards that end gets really hard. I still havent beat it yet
Graphics: 2-D effects are the best, you just cant make classic Street Fighter and SNK into 3-D characters.
Sound: This game lack a good soundtrack , some of the songs are kinda cool but a custom soundtrack would have made the game a whole lot better
Suggestions: How bout a SNK vs Capcom vs Marvel game coming soon!!!!

Overall: Wow. this game totally surprised me. The value of this game is very high despite its somewhat 2d graphics. The whole concept seems to be really cool since it brings back the values of the good ol' fighting games. The street fighters series is vintage, and this game in no way regresses the high standard in the series.
Gameplay: The combo system and list of tricks you can use in this game are just wicked. Unlike DOA, its not just button mashing. This game requires skills. Its very fast paced, and delivers what the past street fighters game brought. There are different grooves you can use that benefit when your combo is done... ie. one groove (or mode) will allow you to use yoru super combo when you have powered up others will alow you to raise your combo bar faster when you're injured). There is also eo-ism an ac-ism... beginning players use eo-ism because the controls are easier, and ac-ism is for more l33t players.
Graphics: There are 3d backbroudn, but they arent that great. but this game isn't about graphics... its about bringing back what was good in a great way.
Sound: It has an only arcade-like sound. Sorta makes you feel like you're in an arcade. the characters also give offs their own distinct sounds. I think we all remember how Ryu's fireball sounds. Sound could use improvement... but its still decent for a fighting game.
Suggestions: sound... better backgrounds...

Overall: Ok, when you first pop this game in, your gonna say, WTF??? This game looks like its as old as my grandma. Well, thats because it is like 3 years old, but to me, that really is the only major downside of this game. If your looking for a solid fighter, and you have XBox Live, get this game today! Its only 40 bucks too!
Gameplay: The game plays very well. Although the Xbox Controller isnt the ideal controller for a fighter, it is definitely not a big problem. You can pick up an arcade stick thing if it really bothers you that much. ANyways, this game is very fun, and there are over 40 characters to choose from. Also, you can change and customize their names and colors, and bring them online. Also, these grooves are customizable after you beat the arcade mode(which is easy!) The AC-ism and EO-ism are very different, and it is a pain online when someone uses EO when your not using it, because it is very cheap. But you can find games and create games that ban it, or you can just choose EOism too!
Graphics: Ok, I already went over this. The graphics absolutely suck, but they do give you that cool vintage feel!
Sound: The sound is old, but like the graphics, it brings back the old days playing Street Fighter Alpha....but for some people the music is very annoying!
Suggestions: Ok, the main suggestion is UPDATE this game, give it a total makeover graphics wise. Other than that, the online play is fun and addicting. Keep up the good work!

Overall: I think the game is ok but it is slightly below average because it could have been better and I think the 2D fighting is going to be gone with soon and the graphics need help.
Gameplay: I do like the controls because it is a button smasher and anyone can attempt to play this game. I do no like the EO controls at all an I think the online version should only allow them in the EO room and not any other rooms
Graphics: The backgrounds are really beautiful but that is about it. The characters are horrible and if you do put your own colors in, it makes it worse.
Sound: How can you say the the "aukin" is a bad frase to say in a game. I do like the sound and the music in the game.

The Jackal
Date reviewed: November 5, 2003.

Overall: Good game. More of the traditional style street fighter game with a bit of new age style because of the "grooves" it has. Lots of variety and very fun.
Gameplay: Very fun and addicting game. Fast with the possibility to be creative with combos and become able to dominate opponents. Very good game.
Graphics: Looks nice, great backgrounds, and very smooth. Although i would have liked to see it more like the Street Fighter 3:3rd Strike style with the waving costumes and such.
Sound: the music is alright, the sound effects when you make contact is good but the music can cut out many times through out the game. This is where it loses points. It is very annoying.
Suggestions: none

Overall: i love this game! i mean i wasnt totally in love with 2d fighters but i picked it up for the live advantage i got totally hooked. my friend and i battle each other constantly and i really enjoy the live addition without it i might not have got it
Gameplay: overall....the unlocking of characters is what gets me to play...i played so much just to get shin akuma and ultimate rugal that i had blisters on my thumbs.
Graphics: not stunning but kinda of repetitive but u get used to it after a while and appreciate that theres not a cut scene for everything
Sound: sound is average not over the wall and the songs do start to urk u after a while but good nonetheless
Suggestions: more characters and expand on the color edit mode thats where the real fun is

Overall: i rented it so i didnt have a chance to use everyone but when i played i liked it because i like 2-d fighters and i like arcades, great game
Gameplay: well its just like in the arcades, you beat each other up and do all these cool moves, not like doa3 at all to let ya know, great game
Graphics: this looks good for a 2d fighter, EXCEPT the characters have extremely low resulotion and the back grounds have a very high resolution...not bad overall
Sound: sound is just like the arcade. i would have to say some on of the characters there winning "acts" get really annoying because they say and do the same thing...over and over
Suggestions: um, the people online are really cheap, they get you in a coner and keep kicking them so the other person loses,

Overall: It gets a 4.0 because after a while it starts to get boring. Once you complete the game the only other challenge is against a friend.
Gameplay: The game play is great. With so many Grooves to choose from, it relies one strategy too. E0ism and ACism provides challenges, and also relief to experienced and in-experienced. Yet it did downgrade 1 thing from the Street Fighter 2. Which is it isn't environmentally active. There should be boxes in which you can throw. Live game types are chosen at random which i feel is a big disadvantage some times. Also there isn't to much variety on match types.
Graphics: The old 2D graphics are kind of un-settling. The 3D environment however does not change things at all. Also there aren't too many stages! Seeing the same things over and over makes it boring.
Sound: There aren't many songs or sound effects in this game. But the ones that are their leave there mark. Yet with lack of back round music, its annoying hearing the same dumb songs over and over again
Suggestions: Add another update for more stuff for this game. Lack of matches and random matches on on-line multi-player play isn't too appealing. Also more sound needed too. Also for the next game, try making it 3D.

Overall: This is a great game that I don't think people understand. People tend to think (with all the technology we have now we can make it 3d) But i think most people know that when you make a 2d game 3d it really messes the game up (eg. Street fighter Alpha EX, Contra)
Gameplay: THe gameplay is really fun. The EO messes the game up because the old 2d fighting games are dying out and the last thing we need is a new setup that makes it easier for newbies
Graphics: Great. First for all those out there who complain that the graphics are dumb because of the 2d graphics, this is an oldschool game and by keeping with these oldschool graphics keeps our ties with our old video games. Graphics aren't everything most of the best games dont have great graphics (eg. Chrono trigger, Advanced wars 1 & 2, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time) so don't get mad because you don't like the @d graphics.
Sound: THe music is pretty cool, the one thing i don't understand is that the game actually has a big soundtrack with good music but only 30% of it is actually used. I scored the Sound 3.5 only because when you get a dynamic kill in the game all the music stops.
Suggestions: Try and make delay's in the computers moves, because it would be impossible for a human player to do a Sonic Boom while walking foward.

Dark Enemy
Date reviewed: April 9, 2003.

This game has come a long way from the dreamcast to the Ps2 and and Gamecube and no the XBOX. There has been little change to the game. But what made this a high selling point for xbox is that it supports XBOX LIVE. The graphics arent up to XBox standereds but the gameplay with xbox live will make u look over that.
As i said this game hasnt changed it has all the characters from capcom like Ryo, Ken ,Sagat, Blanka. So you'll feel right at home with old school fighting. On xbox live you can challenge people accross the world from the U.S.A all the way to Japan. This makes the replay value for this game 5/5. only problem you would have is that you will get people online that might just exit the game while ur beating them and not giving you the win.:(
For not taking advantage of the xbox power and just being a port wont help the visual score. but graphics isnt everything so hopefully the gameplay will let u ignore this part of the game.
The Sound isnt anything special either, it has the same music over and over and over. It will get pretty boring listening to it all the time. And sometimes when you do a special move the music will get cut off.
Start over and do this game from scrap and this time take advantage of the system. Mybe a Capcom vs SNK vs Marval will be a good idea ;)

Overall: I think this game is great, so many things to do, never the same end boss, just plain awesome. So many different types of attacks and super moves, many ways of fighting, none being unblalanced at all. this game truly does shine at its greatest. the acism and eoism are great additions and different grooves are great, but youll find your self only choosing one groove and ism and sticking with that forever, and like most street fighter games... its easily to get frustrated at, especially online because you have a win/lose ratio and you want to keep that up or you look bad, its very trilling but makes you easily frustrated.
Gameplay: Great, very simple for begginers and the choice of ac-ism also leaves a challenge for the old skool guys. its really great to see a fighter game go online also, the online play is a bit laggy and you lose connection at the worse times for example... when your about to win, losing connections count as a loss on both parts so that sux, and sometimes the controller doesnt respond to the actions, but other then that this game is F****** awesome!!!!!
Graphics: uhh... i wish they didnt have this part in the review... but to be perfectly honest, the graphics suck azz, they could not be worse unless you played it on gameboy.
Sound: well since usually i have my tv on mute and i listen to music while i play, i wouldnt know about this part, but what i have heard so far i think its great, the characters actually make sounds when u hit them.
Suggestions: cmon guys, enhanced graphics... no win/lose ratio, just the amount of games youve played. and maybe making more capcom characters
