Brand: Capcom

Details: Who would win in a fight: the Incredible Hulk or Wolverine? What if Street Fighter’s Ryu teamed up with Hulk, and Chun Li had Wolverine’s back? Speculate no more as Marvel pits its comic book heroes against Capcom’s video game stars in Marvel vs. Capcom. All your favorite Marvel characters are available, each one a joy to play. The Hulk is huge, powerful, and slow, while Spider-Man leaps and web-slings around the arena, attacking with outrageous handsprings, flips, and lunging punches. Capcom’s familiar Street Fighter heroes, as well as a few other heroes such as Mega Man, round out the character selection. Some of the lesser-known characters from both franchises make special appearances. It’s pretty funny when Arthur from the old game Ghosts N’ Goblins jumps onscreen to throw lances at Captain America. Each of the battles is a two-on-two tag-team match. Players can swap characters in the middle of a fight, and clever players quickly discover how to launch devastating double-team attacks on the opponent. Up to four people can play. If Marvel vs. Capcom has a fault, it’s super speed. The action is fast–really fast–and can quickly overwhelm a player who is used to the feint-and-strike gameplay of more sophisticated 3-D fighting games. In fact, gamer novices may be able to beat video game veterans by resorting to the old “randomly mash every button as fast as you can” trick. Aside from this, the game is a triumph in 2-D fighting. –Mike FehlauerPros:Great cast of charactersTests superiority of superheroesDevastating tag-team movesFaithful hero animationsCons:Cramped fighting spaceDifficult, hyper-speed gameplay Product description Imagine the battle: Spider-Man vs. Mega Man… Incredible!

Review OK, let’s bypass the intro to this review and make one thing perfectly clear. The gameplay score in this review is based on playing the game with Sega’s arcade-style joystick, which is sold by Agetec here in the States. If this joystick didn’t exist, and the only option was the standard Dreamcast controller, it’s likely the gameplay would have gotten a lower score. Marvel vs. Capcom is the latest incarnation of Capcom’s Street Fighter vs. series. But here, instead of limiting the characters to X-Men or Street Fighters, Capcom has taken characters from all over the Marvel and Capcom universes. Marvel is represented by new additions like Venom and Onslaught, as well as fighting-game veterans like Spider-Man, Captain America, and Wolverine. Capcom’s lineup includes Street Fighters Ryu, Chun Li, and Zangief, but also include non-fighting game characters like Captain Commando, Strider Hiryu, and Mega Man. The result is an ultimate (albeit a bit condensed) lineup of fighters from all over the place. This cross section of comic book heroes and video-game characters gives the game a truly new and diverse feel, even if the gameplay hasn’t changed too much since the last Capcom vs. fighting game, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. The matches are still fought in typical tag-team fashion. You can swap between your two fighters at any time, letting one hop out and regain a little life. There are also team-up attacks, where both fighters hop out and do a super move together, resulting in big damage if the attack connects. New to Marvel vs. Capcom are helper attacks. After picking your two fighters, you’re given a random helper character, whom you can call out for a quick attack a few times during the match with a quick press of both medium attack buttons. The helper characters are also taken from various places in the worlds of Marvel and Capcom. Some of the more notable characters include Marvel characters like Jubilee, Cyclops,
