  1. Put simply, this is the best 2D beat-em-up that we've played on any format so if you're a fan of the genre and choose to veer away from stunning 3D fighters like "Soul Calibur," this is the game for you.
  2. 94
    An excellent title and sure to satisfy even the most devastating of cravings.
  3. Amazing graphics, limitless playability. You just won't find a fighting game this good for a long time to come.
  4. 90
    While it would be nice to have more available characters, Capcom vs. SNK will keep you busy for a very long time, mastering the nuances of the fighting engine and unlocking the huge amount of hidden features.
  5. 88
    Obviously, the game's got a lot going for it -- but we can't help but notice several glaring omissions in the character roster.
  6. The two companies have succeeded in creating a good game but perhaps haven't reached their potential.
  7. All in all, this is easily the best fighting game on the market along side "Vampire Chronicles."

    Love the Capcom vs Snk series. Love 'EM. I'll take this VS. series over the Marvel vs Capcom series any day of the week. Capcom vs Snk is still, till this day, one of my favorite fighters ever. Everything about it was fantastic. Production values, music, backgrounds, control, fun factor, characters, this game has it all. My 1 and only negative (and I'm sure most people would agree) would be the raito system, but its definitely not enough to tarnish this phenomenal fighter. Highly recommended to all fighting fans.
