Marvel Vs Capcom 2
gonna take you for a ride, do dah di dah" is what greets you when
you select your fighters, and its right this game is one seriously cool
ride. Long ago I used to talk to Russel at EB about a Marvel Megamix game,
and now my dream has come true.
Marvel Vs Capcom 2 [MVSC2] is the sequel to Marvel Vs Capcom, I assume that you already knew that. However what's more is that it is part four in the 'Vs' series. Marvel Vs Capcom was distinctly average, it had only 15 characters and everything was just to extreme. Fortunately Capcom have learnt from their mistakes and have given us MVSC2.
MVSC2 plays very differently from its predecessor, those of you who played X-men Vs Street Fighter will be in familiar territory. MVSC2 combines tactical combo's with the crazy super powered moves that we all love. MVSC2 plays differently also due to the new button layout. The medium attack buttons have disappeared meaning that the zig-zag combo kings and queens will have to adapt to the new layout. The medium attacks are still available by pressing the weak buttons real quick.
wise MVSC2 looks twice as god…why? Because it is running in twice the
resolution - 640*480. Unfortunately the characters have not been re-drawn
they have been stretched. This is not that apparent unless you are playing
the game through a VGA box. The new characters like Cable, Marrow, and
Tron all look amazing and their voice samples are how we would expect them
to sound. But all this is trivial as the biggest part of MVSC2 is the 56
such a huge amount of characters does pose a problem. Some of the
characters stand little chance against the others, Felicia and Dan spring
to mind. This is a shame as all to soon you will end up avoiding playing a
large bulk of the characters.
the backgrounds are 3D and look amazing. The 2D characters look good
against the backgrounds, MVSC2 is definitely a showcase Dreamcast title.
As with all fighting games lastability lies in the hands of the game
player, MVSC2 increases its lifespan by rewarding you with points with
which you can by new characters and stages.
The final boss is the massive Abyss, from the Marvel universe. He appears in 3 forms, comparing him to the previous 'Vs' bosses he is quite easy to beat as long as you have a character who has a super projectile attack like Ryu or Cyclops. However it is not just Abyss you is easy to defeat, the whole game is easily beaten. For the first time you will be playing this game on difficulty 8 for a challenge. The difficulty of the game also relies on the characters you pick, if you want a challenge pick Dhalsim, Dan, and Felicia!
you have played the Arcade mode to death, there is the Score attack mode.
This basically takes you through the arcade game but you are playing for
all out points. To get points you need combos, my highest is 124 hit. The
game features the standard versus mode, and training mode. Basically
anything that did not go in this game you don't want, believe me when I
say that this game will amaze you, like Soul Calibur did the first time
you saw it.
music deserves a special mention as many of the background battle music
features music and are in short small songs, and although you may
initially cringe at the lyrics you will soon love them and be humming them
around the house. Sound effects are crisp, they seem to have been redone
and as all the Marvel characters speak English we can understand their
on track this game is primarily all out FUN. There is no story to speak
of, so there is no character specific endings. The character artwork has
been drawn in sepia toned washed out water style effect. Along with the 3D
backgrounds, and the quality of the character animation really makes this
game something special.
should own this game, it houses all our comic favourites and gives us the
most amazing organised chaos ever in a video game. There are those who
won't like the over the top moves, but no one can deny its entertainment
"Marvel Vs Capcom 2 is exceptional, can you feel it!"
