  1. The tried and true gameplay, excellent controls, detailed graphics and online play add up to a great package for gamers. However the difficulty and dated look of some of the graphics and sound effects will have non-SNK fans looking elsewhere for their fighting fix.
  2. The Xbox Live will keep you happy for a very long time. There are some issues with the Xbox controller. Maybe I just have fat fingers, but I think it is best if you use a larger Arcade controller.
  3. The issue with SVC Chaos is that while it has a great deal of pick-up-and-play it severely suffers from an absence of any longevity outside of its online component. SVC Chaos feels more like the beginning of something really exciting, but falls far from containing anything of real substance.
  4. The game's poor graphics and sound really sour what's a solid package, and makes the game's $50 price tag hard to swallow.

    A decent fighter with a stripped down fighting system that some may prefer over fancier, more combo-studded variations. Stripped down pretty much describes this game well in most respects.
  6. I don't know why SNK Playmore put so little effort into SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom. When compared to so many of the other fighting games they have developed and produced, and also Capcom's line of fighters, this easily becomes the low point of 2D fighting in recent years.
  7. 30
    Fails for a few different reasons, but the big one is a simple lack of consistency. A good fighting game is governed by clear, well-defined rules and directed through precise, responsive commands. Chaos doesn't have either.

Overall, a solid fighter for the XBOX, but probably not for those who don't have a strong sense of nostalgia. Expand

    This game has good characters, but I still crave for more! The "secret" characters are radically unbalanced. They will dominate in online This game has good characters, but I still crave for more! The "secret" characters are radically unbalanced. They will dominate in online play. Online play is just garbage, period. It's way way way way way too laggy for this kind of fast fighting game. New players will be bewildered when they are stuck in a corner and some unforgiving person using Shin Akuma will just be ripping them apart. The XBox controller sucks for the controls. The d-pad is horribly unsensitive. Audio is ok, some of the voices aren't as good as the previous games like MvC2. Graphics like sprites are all in a "hi-def" filter that makes them look choppy. Whatever happened to the smooth animations and gameplay from Street Fighter 3: Third Strike? I'm probably taking this game back, I'm disappointed. Expand

    For a full priced game, this really doesn't give you much.
