  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. Amazing graphics, limitless playability. You just won't find a fighting game this good for a long time to come.

    Obviously, the game's got a lot going for it -- but we can't help but notice several glaring omissions in the character roster.
  4. Capcom vs. SNK may not have as an impressive roster or flashy supers but it does bring together the two worlds we thought would never collide.
  5. Capcom and SNK fans will be wettin' their pants for this one -- everyone else (including fight fans accustomed to more sophisticated graphics) will find this tepid at best. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is a much more exciting game.
  6. A fun game, created around a fantastic concept; however, it's not quite the game fans would have wanted it to be.
  7. While Capcom vs SNK certainly adds some flavor to the "Street Fighter" pot, it doesn't change the main course at all. Too bad, considering what this game could have been.

    This game represents the classic streetfigther style that has been lacking from recent capcom games. Unlimited replayability, wonderful characters, and more depth that the last five SF games released combined. Expand

    What a great game! First off, the premise is just plain wacky, but if you make it past that, you'll realize that this is a REAL accomplishment for both Capcom and the now sadly deceased SNK company. However, this game does have a few flaws. First off and most obvious, the balance of the game is quite off: the SNK groove holds a major advantage over the Capcom groove with unlimited desperation (Super Special) moves. Second, fans of both series will be shocked at what characters got left out of the series, such as Guy from the Street Fighter Alpha series and Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi from the Fatal Fury/King of Fighters games. Lastly, even using the training time trick to earn points (leaving the game in training mode for about 1 and 3/4 hours at a time) to buy characters still takes an inordinate amount of time, although the rewards are sweet. Overall, however, this is an excellent game that, although somewhat lacking and having limitations, should be picked up by any fighting game fan....that is if you don't have a PS2 and have enough dough to chuck down on a copy of Capcom Vs. SNK 2. Collapse
