SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: SVC Chaos is one of those games that you’ll either love or hate. There’s not a lot of room for a middle ground here. Some players, particularly the hardcore fans, may find the stripped down feel and presentation a cheap reflection of the franchise while others may find the more streamlined gameplay easier to jump into.
Summary: Taking the legendary companies' brawling
series to another new cross-over, the release of SNK Vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos
remakes the series with a distinctive SNK feel. The game's mixture of
characters, brilliant 2D design and deep moves lists, with new combo attacks and
a fantastic Exceed move, adds to the strategy and depth. SNK vs.
Excerpt: If you’ve been into fighting games for a while, then you’ll probably recognize a ton of familiar faces in SVC Chaos. And with that nostalgia kick you have just about the only thing recommendable about the game.
Excerpt: SNK brings us some 2D online goodness with SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos. Even still, the redundancy of the title, sluggish controls and even more sluggish online play are opponents this little fighter just can't KO. It ain't great; it ain't bad. It's thoroughly mediocre. Check the review for Matt's complete writeup.
Excerpt: The good news is that SNK is back in action, and if they play their cards right, they won't be going away again anytime soon. The bad news is that SVC Chaos , the fourth game in the series of crossovers between Japan's two leading 2D fighting franchises, isn't all that great. It's not that bad, but it's not all that great.
Excerpt: 2D fighting games are dead, right? At least that was the general consensus a few years ago, before Capcom, SNK and Sammy unleashed a veritable flood of sprite-based beat-em-ups on the market. Obviously, that was a premature assessment, because 2D brawlers are not only not dead, but happily flourishing alongside their more “advanced” 3D cousins. Enter SNK’s take on the whole Capcom vs. SNK issue — the aptly titled, SNK vs.
Conclusion: SVC Chaos shouldn’t be avoided by those who follow SNK or Capcom as it still is a solid game to collect. The online is the saving grace for this title as it’s the best part of the game that kept me from putting it on the rack with other dusty games that were never picked up again to play. If you are a true hardcore fan, I recommend you pick it up but with caution as it will fork out some moments of frustration wondering why you ever decided to buy this game.
