Summary

The true heir to the Street Fighter series

The Good

This game frankly resembles SF3 more than any of the VS games; the only similarity is the Dreamcast-friendly 4-button system. There are lots and lots of characters, and the graphics overall are awesome. Balance is fairly well distributed among the top characters from Capcom and SNK, and there's an innovative team battle system where you select anything from a single powerful character to 4 weak ones.

The Bad

It's got to fit into the Capcom system, so most of the SNK guys lost some moves. It's got 4 buttons, so most of the Capcom guys lost some moves. There's a big graphical disparity (some sprites haven't been updated in years, some are new and much much better-looking). The sound and music are the same old stuff you hear in every fighting game.

The Bottom Line

If you're reading this review, you probably like either Capcom or SNK fighters enough to buy this game simply because you can have Guile beat up Kyo. If you're not used to the Street Fighter system, you'll probably have a hard time learning, but it's rewarding in the end.
