Conclusion: As much as I enjoy this game—I can see myself battling against friends for months to come—I can still think of numerous ways to make it even better for the sequel. First and foremost, the character sprites need to make the jump to hi-res.
Excerpt: The visuals of recent Capcom fighting games are always a strange mixture of good and bad. While the character sprites are usually old, recycled, and horrible to look at, the backgrounds are always stunning in their beauty.

Conclusion: I could think of about 30 good Capcom fighters who could have been included in this game. Imaging coming across a really great bottle of wine with a excellent vintage but you only get to have a teaspoons worth to drink.
Excerpt: 23 different characters to pick from. Sure, a DVD can hold a ton of data (and this disc is by no means full), but most good fighting games seem to be able to make do with anywhere between 16 and 25 playable characters.

Conclusion: Five years ago, Capcom Fighting Evolution probably would have been a great game. It does a decent job of throwing together a bunch of different characters into the mix, and letting them take advantage of their respective games' specific play mechanics. It also plays fine and looks good.
Pros: Old 2D sprites still look good, for the most part, Responsive controls, New background graphics and endings.
Cons: Very few modes of play, Chances are you've played all this before.
