  1. Of all the incarnations of the versus series, never before have I had so much fun, said "WHOA!" so many times per match, and been so frustrated as to which characters to pick.

    Fast and furious action, great sound and gameplay -- it's the best 2D fighting game ever made.
  3. The MOST FUN 2D fighter game of all time.
  4. Granted, the horrible pseudo-jazz background music is the equivalent of forced aural sodomy, but the rest of the package is so well put together, a little forced aural sodomy sometimes seems a small price to pay.
  5. The "Soul Calibur" of two-dimensional fighting games.
  6. Far from being the most perfect fighting game, but it's close to being the most enjoyable one.
  7. Thankfully, Capcom, the king of coin-op fighters, seems to have few reservations about taking what are essentially change magnets and bringing them home intact for the low, low price of $49.99 (or roughly 100 plays).

    This is easily the best version out of the, seemingly, hundreds of versions that this game has now. The reason why it is the best version is that this was released back in a day when single-player actually meant something to a fighting game. The dozens of characters you had to unlock had me glued to this game for days on end. Plus getting the extra stages and music pieces was easily the best part of this game for me. Now with a sequel out, which I feel is nowhere near as good as this, this game is definitely showing its age. But make no mistake, this was easily one of the best fighting games ever made and the best version of this game was made for the dreamcast. Expand

    this is the best fighting game on the system a huge cast of 56 characters with lots of unlockables like new characters stages costumes a lot of replay value and hours of fun alternate choices are xmen vs street fighter on saturn or marvel vs street fighter but those are both imports Expand
