The way the characters work is wonderfull. You won't be doing 25+ hit combos Like in some of the new 2D fighters. The interaction and balance really takes the forefront here. Learning the timing for jumping, combos, and use of special moves really becomes nessecary or else you will be getting a major pounding from your opponent.
There are a few things to consider though before purchasing.
1) This game is hard. Very Hard. If any of you remember the Arcade version of "Street Fighter 2 Turbo" sucking away your quarters you know what I'm talking about.
2) You realy need to invest in a joystick to play this game. The Dream Cast controler just doesn't cut it here. You really need to use "Super Moves" to be effective against the CPU and you have to pull them off reliably and effectivly. Some of the super moves require lots of directional input, and the regular controller is going to leave you frustrated. (Dream Cast Joysticks are a cheap buy these days at about 10$ USD)
Overall this game is great. Old 2d fighting fans who pumped quarters at the arcades will be getting top notch difficulty and quality. Newer gamers or people beefing up their Dream Cast collections will get an excellent 2 player fighing game to play with friends and family, althouth the single player experience might be a bit too hard.
Sound (9/10): There's a few great tunes in this game that play in the backgrounds of the matches and menus, but the best song in the game is the one that plays in the opening cinematic that introduces the characters. Also, the game gives you the choice to choose between arranged tracks (which sound really good) and the original chiptune tracks. Both sound excellent.
Gameplay (11/10): This game plays beyond perfect. The movement is so smooth that it puts hot knives through butter to shame. Just the feeling of jumping around feels so natural that you'll find yourself doing now and then just for the hell of it. SNK learned a lot about fighting games over the years, and all their hard work culminated into making the combat in this game as tight, responsive, and deep as possible. For casual fighting game fans such as myself, you'll be able to figure most of the special moves and combos with some practice. However, if you are a high skills professional level fighter, this is a very technical game with many aspects to the combat that, once mastered, will always give you the upper hand.
Overall (10/10): This game is a definite must own for anyone who owns a Dreamcast. For those who are wondering, it does work with both the VGA box and the Arcade Stick. Is the game worth the high price it commands today? It absolutely is.
The survival mode is hard and the most challenging mode in the game,their isn't that many different modes,but it's still one the best SNK fighters out there.I will recommend this game to any fighting fan who likes 2D fighters.This game has one of the best graphics,it looks like a cartoon.
I play this game with my Hori joystick,this game is not as fun with the normal controller.
Pros: well-balanced fighters,easy to do super moves,fun and easy to play, backgrounds are well drawn,story mode dialogue,not as frantic as MVC games,arcade perfect
Cons: no returning fighters except Terry,could use more modes,story mode dialogue
