If you enjoy fighting games but get bored of them quickly at least rent this instant classic. I have owned this game since the day it was release because I have after all a fan of the series, but I will say this with no favortism or biased...this game is solidly balanced and deep. 25 Fighters are more then enough, and each with its own feel and style. Best fighting game to date. I thought Marvel VS DC was good, and Mortal Kombat Defiance was king until this game came out. This is a must buy, because the online gamers will be there forever...all night long...all weekend long. Little cheesy with some cartoonish graphics, but I like it all...except 4 the intro song and shotty animated movies....what were they thinking??? Horrible videos and music. Good thing I can fight with no music in this game, or I wouldnt have played it with the sound on...its really that bad. I give it a 10 though. Great job capcom!
