  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).

    The best 2D fighting game ever made. But sadly I think this is the end of the versus series. So much was put into this game I belive it has reached the end of its road. Collapse

    An oustanding pinnacle for all 2d fighters and a flat-out great game...even if it is one of the last great ones of a fallen dynasty that is 2D fighting. Expand

    This game a pointless, stupid button-masher. It is too frantic to be any fun. The music just doesn't suit a fighting game, and the stages look bland. You should try "FATAL FURY - MARK OF THE WOLVES" instead --- now that one is, no doubt, the best 2D fighting game for the Dreamcast! Expand
