As the title suggests Marvel Vs Capcom 2 is another fighter from Capcom, the masters of 2D fighting games. As with the first game the characters all come from the Marvel Comics such as X-Men, Spider-man, Increadable Hulk and Captain America and Capcom fightin games including the awesome Street Fighter series among others.
Marvel Vs Capcom 2 includes tag team fighting with 3 fighters on each side. This adds some excitement to the bouts and results in you having to mastermind the weaknesses of each character. It is also possible to create a hyper combo whereby your three characters add thier moves together to create a super combo.
Graphically there is little to fault about this title. The animation is superb and there is always plenty happening on screen. The frame rate is also fairly constant and this game is one of the most impressive home conversions for Capcom to date.
I mentioned previously that there are a lot of characters, well there are 58 in total and there can be no better way to close off this preview with a full list of all the fighters and where they come from. Here goes;
