Fighting Force 2 is a brand new review.
What do you think?
To help your review out a bit, SonSon is from the slightly obscure 1984 Capcom arcade title of the same name (one of his Super moves involves a Capcom "Pow" icon turning the opponent into another Capcom "strawberry" icon before EATING it). Tron Bonne (and the Servbots) were from the Mega Man Legends series on Playstation, and Ruby Heart was a Capcom original character created for MvC2.
I have both of them, and LOVE them to death! Well deserved A+ grade for sure.
But you have got to knock it down at least a letter grade for the horrible music that shouldn't have ever been used in a fighting game. That "gonna take you for a ride" crap that repeats over and over during the character selection is bad enough without mentioning the actual matches. I had read a lot of complaints about the music and thought that they were probably just exaggerated. No, they weren't. The music sucks hard and affects the overall experience in a negative way.
May I suggest you give X-Men VS Street Fighter a go, too? It's technically the first game in the series, where most of the gameplay features originated.
(make sure to get the (Japanese-only) Saturn version, though, the PS1 version is terrible)
I didn't know about X-Men Vs. Street Fighter but I'll check it out!
Well, whatever floats your boat but most people don't care for it at all. Racketboy has an article that links to a MvC2 ROM with better music. Also, many requested new DLC music for the MvC2 download on PS3/XB)X360. Capcom said they would but so far have not.
I am one who doesn't often pay attention to music and could usually care less but the jazz tunes grated on me pretty bad and just didn't fit the frenetic gameplay. It's like listening to classical music while watching the Super Bowl. It just ain't right.
Other than that, it's a great game. I love the fact that it has a great deal of difficulty. That's what makes the single player aspect of a fighter good. It's what Tatsunoko vs. Capcom lacked.
I had all 56 characters unlocked!
