Yeah, this game is pretty easy, but it's also pretty long. It can easily last over 50 hours, with approximately that many chapters that each take an hour or more to complete, you'll be grinding on this one to see the ending. And outside of an Expert Mode and a music player, there's not much in terms of rewards for beating the game, so it's unlikely you'll pick it up again after plowing through it unless you're a huge fan of Namco or Capcom.

Namco X Capcom has some serious flaws: its look is dated, it's way too long, and it isn't as challenging as it should be. However, it has a fantastic character lineup, a unique and enjoyable battle engine, and absolutely spot-on dialogue and characterization. If you're a longtime gamer with a lot of patience and a good grasp of Japanese, I'd recommend a purchase, but others may want to think twice before diving in.
