To be honest, for me, I loved the original arcade game. Then the console versions just didnt do it for me, But once again the wii steps upto bat taking on the old borring button smasher games and revitalizes them with the excitement of the wii controlers! On the POsitive side a great weekend party game that is very easy to get the controlls of and an awesome price! Huge variety of cast members. On the COn we see the exact same moves from everybody, and it doesnt feel much different when picking one character to another... Not like most fighting games that when giving character selection make them feel completely different. In this game most everyone does the exact same cookie cutter moves, but look kewl. And the story starts with a A++ to get you interested then falls off the face of the planet. A renter for the occasional player, a buyer for the die hard, and I would recomend this as a starter for kids who want a more agressive fighter game but parents want something more mello.
