  1. For 2D fighting bliss, look no further than Capcom Fighting Evolution. [Dec 2004, p.64]

    Too routine to stand out from the crowd--especially for Capcom fighting vets. After a few rounds, you should be more than satisfied.

    Evolution's problem is that each of the characters is distinct, but there aren't nearly enough of them for the game to stand on that concept alone.
  4. Honestly, I think you’d have to be a super fan of the 2D fighting games to really think this game was great.
  5. The most unique thing about it is the chance to create match-ups between games with such different themes. Otherwise, most of these characters are available in other forms and in games you probably already have.
  6. Many of the characters that are included in this game are awkward to control or just plain boring. The gameplay itslef is fairly bare bones. [Holiday 2004, p.115]
  7. There is no reason to buy or play this game. It’s a thin, worthless piece of spam on a hook that will hopefully be gobbled up by the countless better games available this holiday season. Even if you get nothing for Christmas, be thankful you didn’t get this.

    The quotes from Armchair Empire and Gamer Feed are spot on. If I weren't such a fan of the genre and company I would have rated it a 6.

    Its a fun, if not mercilessly rehashed game with no real innovation, particularly in its graphics. There's only one new sprite in the Its a fun, if not mercilessly rehashed game with no real innovation, particularly in its graphics. There's only one new sprite in the whole game, and almost all the rest of the sprites are anywhere from 6 to 10 years old. That's unacceptable in a world where GGX is almost 4 years old, and SNK remains low-res but has for more detailed, well animated, and best of all, often new or modified sprites. Granted most people don't play these games for graphics, but geez, its seriously time for Capcom to evolve. Collapse
