Lens of Truth
X-Men vs Street Fighter was a needed Optic Blast in the rear end of the fighting game world. Street Fighter clones were everywhere and the shock value of Mortal Kombat had worn off. Capcom blew a breath of fresh air into what at the time was a stagnant genre. This game by all accounts is to date one of the greatest fighting games ever made.

This unbelievable arcade port is a MUST-OWN Saturn fighting game. If you've been wondering what reasons there are to own a Saturn, here's the only one you'll need this year!

Overall, this game is a magnificent translation. Someone over at Capcom must really love us. However, seeing this, it brings hope to this SF fan’s heart that an arcade perfect Vampire Savior and an arcade perfect MSH v. SF can’t be too far away.

Que dire si ce n'est que c'est tout simplement le meilleur jeu de baston toutes consoles confondues ou la quintessence du jeu de baston, au choix.

Mit X-Men vs. Street Fighter hat Capcom die Krönung des 2D-Beat'em-Ups programmiert. Besitzer anderer Konsolen können nur neidisch auf die Saturn-User schauen - die PSX-Version wird wegen der fehlenden RAM-Karte schlechter ausfallen, wahrscheinlich ohne Kämpferwechsel. Saturn-Besitzer müssen allerdings den Weg über den Importhändler gehen, wenn sie diese perfekte Automatenumsetzung Ihr eigen nennen wollen, da sich (laut Firmenangabe) der Vertrieb in Deutschland nicht lohnen würde.

SEGA-Mag (Objectif-SEGA)
X-Men versus Street Fighter est un titre incontournable de la Saturn. Vendu avec la RAM il inaugurait le début d'une grande série de cross-over. Il restera culte comme ayant été le premier jeu du genre, et comme ayant été le jeu où Ryu et Ken faisaient leur Shinku-Hadoken côte à côte, où les deux héros ayant combattu ensemble devaient s'affronter à la fin du jeu. Le contenu est ultra réduit, mais on peut quand même jouer seul ou à deux, et là tout est dit. Sa réalisation quant à elle est ce qui se fait de mieux en la matière sur Saturn. Un jeu qu'on ne se lasse jamais de remettre dans sa console pour quelques séances de combats et de combos enragés.

Joystick (French)
Il est indéniable que ce soft a la patate avec ses combos et coups de la mort, et que c'est ce genre de jeu qui manque cruellement sur nos bécanes. Moralité : SF vs X-Men, c'est l'arcade à la maison, et le PC en grève, si toutefois nous sommes fans de baston.

Defunct Games
This game is considerably better than it's PlayStation counterpart, I might add. With, or without, the use of the RAM cartridge Street Fighter Alpha 2 shines with much more animation and detail than you'd expect. The game is nearly arcade perfect, and with single screen shots, it's almost impossible to tell. The Saturn control also features six buttons across, a God send to the Street Fighter-philes. If you have the first game, this is a bit difficult to recommend, but if you're a die hard Street Fighter fan there's no reason you shouldn't already have this game!

X-Men vs. Street Fighter is yet another Capcom cookie-cutter fighting game. This time, Street Fighters team up with X-Men in a two-on-two tag-team battle of pure insanity. While the game's characters play somewhat like their previous incarnations, their special moves have been pumped way up. Ryu's fireball is now as tall as he is. The flames coming off of Ken's Dragon Punch are huge, and it goes about two screen lengths up. While this is a neat concept at first, the derivative moves and defensive gameplay really bring this one down in the end.
