The ability to challenge other players from across the world in the Xbox version of Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO makes it an utterly incredible experience for anyone with even the faintest appreciation for the genre.
A shining example of gameplay over graphics if there ever was one. Not including "Guilty Gear X2" on PS2, there is no other 2D fighting game that even comes close to dishing out the kind of fun that this game does.
A great game for fans of 2D fighting, but Capcoms 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.
The only thing that raises CVS2 up and above the likes of "Dead or Alive 3" or even "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance" is its online element, and I'll only really recommend it until a beat 'em up developed within the last three years makes its mark on Xbox Live.
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.
Theres such a mind-boggling amount of options to choose from, that your head wont stop spinning 44 fighters (including 2 unlockables), 6 groove styles with the option of making your own and an incredibly ridiculous amount of moves to remember.
