Conclusion: It’s playable and probably fun with a group of friends but in this day and age you need to do a bit more than this. Also what irks me about these games is how transient the line-ups are. Would it really be impossible for capcom to just include all of their characters? Especially when the meat of the game (punching people in the head) is so shallow.
Summary: Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom is easily the best fighting game Capcom has released in years. It’s exceptionally well balanced, has a diverse cast list that doesn’t suffer from “fireball bros. syndrome”, and is both visually and aurally enjoyable. The game also boasts five different controller set-ups for a gamer to use, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
Conclusion: Even with this significant problem, however, Tatsunoko remains a must-buy for fighting fans. Its balance, variety, accessibility, and depth are unmatched on the Wii, and it gives even fighters on other consoles a run for their money.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a fighting game featuring stars from Capcom's series of games and Tatsunoko anime. Players choose between 26 characters to engage in a series of 2-on-2 brawls. Not only will players use their fists and feet, but weapons such as baseball bats and golf clubs. Also, some of the female fighters dress in little clothing. The game is playable online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to children under the age of 12.
Excerpt: As far as 2D fighting games go, there are few better than the fast-paced, action-packed Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes. But it's old. Ten years old, in fact. With unnerving regularity, the internet collectively wonders: "Dude, where's my Marvel vs. Capcom 3?" The answer is that it is a game that may never see the light of day; understandable, really, when you consider the licensing issues that would no doubt challenge such a release.
Excerpt: It just got weirder. Capcom sure took its time putting out a new game in the long running "Vs." series anywhere outside of Japan. About a year after its release, however, against all odds, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom makes its way to the States - and the rest of the world, for that matter. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars pits Capcom's most popular characters against a cast of cartoon heroes (and villains) from the venerable Tatsunoko Production Co.
Pros: Good fighting game on the Wii, Great 2D/3D cel-shaded graphics, Approachable and complex, Plenty of control options, Varied cast of characters, ...many of which need to be unlocked., Weak single-player, very few options
