Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium Movie 8
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 19 out of 22
  2. Negative: 0 out of 22
  1. The most beautifully balanced, well-crafted 2D beat-‘em-up to grace God’s fair Earth.
  2. It seems that Capcom does listen to its followers, because CVS2 is light year ahead of its predecessor, in game play, options, and presentation.
  3. You’ll know by now not to expect any radical changes, but a better game through slow refinement and evolution, and for this reason only purists will want this title if they own the original.
  4. Retro fighting game fans, don’t pass this up.

    The largest problem with this game seems to be the difficulty. The end-game bosses are seriously some of the hardest I’ve ever seen in a fighting game.

    I love the color edit and backgrounds, and the character list can't be beat. [Dec 2001, p.95]
  7. Those who haven't played a fighting game in a long time might also be impressed, but the weak visuals will be a major turnoff for the average gamer.

    The greatest fighting game of all time. Or at least one of them, rivalling SFIII: 3rd Strike or SF Alpha 3. This game feels definitive. ThisThe greatest fighting game of all time. Or at least one of them, rivalling SFIII: 3rd Strike or SF Alpha 3. This game feels definitive. This game feels complete. Game play is epitome of smooth. Difficulty adjustments that actually make a difference and can get u learning in no time. Not to mention they included every single move in the pause menu for you to practice! A perfect arcade port and a fighting game that I still pull out often to this day! Expand

    It's the best 2D fighter on the PS2. But it has a few flaws, nothing major though.

While not a masterpiece, the game is a solid entry that will appeal to fans of both brands. There are enough fighters, moves and modes to keep players busy for months. It's a near classic. I would rate Capcom Vs SNK 2 with an 8.1 out of 10. Expand

    It's a bit of a Capcom cash grab, but still... fans of Street Fighter and all the SNK 2D fighters will certainly find a lot to like about it.

    This game was bad. Worse than playing an original Nintendo game. Really no improvement. Very big disappointment.
