  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.
  2. 100
    Fast and furious action, great sound and gameplay -- it's the best 2D fighting game ever made.
  3. Daily Radar
    100
    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. Game Fan
    85
    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).

    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 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
