Excerpt: Capcom is known for releasing their games all over the place, and sometimes we give them a hard time for it. Other times, like right now while we're playing Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on the PS2 and Xbox, we're very happy that they keep their titles alive.
Pros: ups: 56 fighters; great graphics; fast, exciting and fun.
Cons: downs: Character balance is questionable; you'll neglect all of your other games for weeks at a time.
Summary: There once was a time when quality 2D fighting games were a dime a dozen, but these days it’s a whole different story. Especially if you are a PlayStation 2 owner. Outside of the series, Capcom is about your last refuge for high quality 2D fighting games.
Excerpt: There's no doubting that it was Capcom's X-Men vs. Street Fighter that really set off the trend of tag-teaming in fighting games. It all initially started out with a secret character cameo in X-Men: Children of the Atom, as Akuma --a Street Fighter character-- was playable in an X-Men game.
