    If you happened to miss this in arcades or for DC, MVC 2 is a sweet 2D fighter worthy of purchase. [Dec 2002, p.122]
  2. The PS2 port is an excellent adaptation of a classic fighter.

    Although it’s essentially a port of an arcade game that’s two years old, this is one matchup that’s a pleasure to kill hours with at home.

    The only new feature in the PS2 version is an art gallery, so when you factor in the worse sound and lack of VGA, I'd have to say that the Dreamcast version is still the best.

    Old school fans, however, will probably feel that MvC2 is a bit too hectic and find themselves hoping for an online PS2 version of "Street Fighter III" instead. [Holiday 2002, p.50]
  6. There are easily better fighters on the PS2 though, and so this feels more like an exercise in retro gaming than an essential and accessible purchase.
  7. Play Magazine
    60
    The only big downside to all this is a dated engine that shows wear in the animation, which may have passed the test on Dreamcast but loses appeal in today's arena. [Dec 2002, p.88]

    A classic with a great and expansive roster. This is by far the best Marvel vs. Capcom game in the franchise.

Graphics aren't bad and who knows they should do another one of these in the future!!! Expand

    This game is one of my favourite fighters of all time. I think it deserves to be up there with the great fighters such as Soul Caliber and Tekken.
