    Both Capcom and SNK fighting fans will be in heaven. Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO is like a 24-hour arcade that requires no quarters, and the entire country is invited to play.
  2. The addition of online play, coupled with the flexibility of the fighting styles makes for a surprisingly deep arcade fighter.
  3. 85
    A great game for fans of 2D fighting, but Capcom’s ‘cut-and-paste’ approach is really starting to grate on me, especially considering some of the sprites used are nearly a decade old, and just plain ugly.
  4. I will warn you and even I admit I had only two fights against players in Japan and got shown why they love fighting games.
  5. Simply having the game online is a significant enough step forward. [Feb 2003, p.77]
  6. A great idea for a game, but it's a broken, uninspired mess. It looks okay, the music's fine, and upon first blush, it plays as well as you'd expect it would. The deeper you get into it, though, the less you'll find to keep you playing.
  7. The game flows smoothly enough to be played properly online, but really, the appeal is nothing like the games designed specifically for Xbox Live. [Apr 2003, p.63]
