With the "default" controller, a wii-mote, this game is nearly unplayable.
The controls of this game are way too simplified. basically one punch, one kick, one "other" button ( for assists / swaps / etc ). There is noticeable input lag, Mashing buttons gives approximately the same performance as actually trying. ( Atleast in other SF game you had to be mashing the correct buttons ). Super meters fill up entirely too quickly.
Graphics / graphics style is amazing though... really wish this game had a different / deeper control scheme.
I was really expecting alot more from this, especially from reviews.
Lastly, there character selection is somewhat limited compared to MvC2, even after unlocks.
It’s Tatsu….something Vs. Capcom All Stars - but as I’m playing this game, I’m getting visions of the fighting game Marvel Vs. Capcom.
I know, this game is supposed to be a next gen version of Marvel Vs. Capcom, but I’m not seeing anything new or impressive here.
The game’s played very much the same; you pick two fighters from a vast assortment available. Then, you can either take on the Arcade Mode, a Time Trial Mode, a Survival Mode or go against a human opponent online or offline.
The control mechanism is simplified - pulling off a powerful attack is really easy to do; expert players can be turned off by this feature. And the rest of the gameplay is very much the same as in Marvel Vs. Capcom.
With each completion of a Survival Mode, Time Trial Mode or completion of the Arcade Mode, you get currency called Zenny. With this money, you can buy a three dimensional model of a fighter, different colors of their outfits, different posters of the game or two other “movies” that last a few minutes each.
But I was hoping for more; maybe a four on four fight like they do in Super Smash Brothers Brawl. How about different outfits for each of the players, and not just a change of colors? How about a better storyline introducing the game (the one that’s given I found to be lacking) How about different endings depending on the pairing that you pick. Next gen, this is not.
Still, the game does give plenty of last gen fun, and for those of you who love Street Fighter and the Marvel Vs. Capcom games, then this is one game you simply have to buy
But the rest of us might want to rent Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom All Stars first and give it a try before deciding to buy it or not.
