Truly a classic amongst classics, this is hands down one of the best and most fun fighting games I have ever played. Every Marvel character and every major Capcom character is a selectable character for you to use as a fighter in 3 on 3 battles. Super moves and air combos add to the excitement as you can make your dream team of fighters.

Imagine Megaman, Dan and Juggernaut all fighting together on the same team and the only reward is knowing that you beat up the rest of the competition. Well imagine no more.. this game will give you every combination of fighters you could ever want and it even has some never before seen characters in the Vs. series. Like a cactus character named Amingo, Cable and Marrow from the XMen and Anikarus from the Darkstalkers series.

This game is pretty much the last in the line of the Marvel fighting series (mostly due to Capcom losing the rights to the Marvel franchise) which started with Xmen Children of the Adom and then the next games would include Street Fighter characters then just all Marvel Characters and then the also great Marvel Vs Capcom 1. This takes every single character we saw in every previous game up to this point and has them almost unchanged. Characters like Iceman and Spiral which were only in Xmen return almost unchanged and just as much fun as we remember. Bosses like Thanos and Dr. Doom from previous games, are now selectable for you to use as part of your teams as well. (of course they are weakend a tad but thats only expected)

The only downsides I would have to mention are that compared to the Dreamcast version, the PS2 version is a bit pixalated. Its not as smooth and well drawn as the other version was and there is a bit of load time in between the matches that you didn't find on the Dreamcast.

Before I start, I would like to commend Capcom for this conversion. It was a LONG time coming, but they still persisted and went ahead with it. This game, while not appealing to a wider market, will no doubt please a lot of die-hard fans of the genre. Please read on and find out what my opinion is, of this cult-classic 2D fighting game.
This is where the game takes a step back in time. The 2D sprites are showing their age, and look particularly pixilated in comparison to the Dreamcast port. But what is reassuring is that all characters move smoothly and have all most, if not all of their animation frames intact. When you think about how jerky a lot of the old 2D fighting games were on PS1 back in the day due to lack of frames, it's a relief to know the PS2 can `cut it' in this area. Most of the character sprites are bold and colorful as ever, but some appear rough around the edges and recycled when compared to some of the previous installments. The game's special effects are rather impressive: when performing a tag super combo, the explosive effects are very flashy. The Backgrounds are now in 3D, but still have a cartoony edge, this is nice, but the characters being 2D, don't fit in very well - I cant help thinking the game would have had a better feel if it was 2D throughout.
So in summary, the graphics aren't too bad, it's just a pity that the character sprites suffer from pixilation and that they are not quite on par with the crystal clear sprites of the Dreamcast version.
SOUND 5.5/10
Now this is the area of the game that I find most disappointing. The sound effects during battle sound shoddy, recycled, muffled, and altogether a lot less crisp and clear when compared with the Dreamcast version. Sometimes you can barely hear the impact of a blow. The vs.

If you do order this game avoid DVDs123 as they charge the lowest price for new and sealed but send you a game with a fake seal and a big generic white security strip,not the true hologram foil security strip found on new PS 2 games.You can get it used much cheaper from an honest seller who lets you know up fron its used.I was one of DVDs123's many victims of falling for the new and sealed advertisement only to recevie a used game that was massively price gouged.When you complain they use the excuse that if they are out of new copies they send you used ones in good condition (mind you they don't drop the price) If you buy from them you are getting a USED copy for 300 bucks not new.If your going to do taht you might as well get it from an honest used seller for about $200 less.

Was it a great fighting game for its time,sure it was.Is it still a great fighting game after all these years.Sure just like the Street Fighter line of games still holds up well after all these years.The thing is though its good as a classic,theres been far superior fighting games that have come out since.If it was a game for 19.99 like most retro games release for I would say sure for that price go ahead and pick it up.But as for the prices these gougers are charging,definitely not worth it.Its becoming a trend on amazon for merchants to hold rare games and jack the price up praying for suckers to bite.Funny thing is alot of these games will probably come out on the PS3 in the future on compilation and classic discs dirst cheap and someone who pays $500 for it new here will be kicking themselves then.I can't believe theres a guy trying to sell it for 500 just cause its factory sealed and new.You can probably find the arcade machine it was ported over from for cheaper then that price for crying out loud.
