To be honest i took a gamble trying this out because im horrible on the capcom vs series so i stick with mortal kombat. its actually an easy game to play on the vita. graphics are really good also an controls pretty much are easy if your familiar to the series. only thing is the touch control i may not of had patience to look hard but i didnt see anything on how to use it to fight not that i really wanted. overall its a buy if you like fighting games and its easy to find someone online threw wifi to fight
In full disclosure I am not a big fan of the fighting genre. However, this was a popular title and I wanted to try it out for my Vita. I think the game is fairly well made....I just didn't enjoy the game enough to play more than a couple matches.
If you are fan of the fighting genre I'm sure you'll like this title.

I will admit I'm not the BIGGEST Fighting game player. In fact I'm pretty much a noob but I've played other fighting games and this one is just annoying for me and not fun at all. I can't work out how to do combos and all I'm doing half the time is wildly mashing buttons and doing super moves by accident. I can't even figure out half the commands (like freaking BLOCKING) even looking at the manual and the touch screen version wasn't working when I tried it. The training option is a joke and pointless as far as I can tell since it donesn't explain comands and even the missions where you can practice each combo move for ALL the different characters doesn't provide a good explanation on how to do it. I've played DBZ Boudikai which also uses combo moves using certain directional inputs and as a PS2 game that feels 10 times easier to do than this game. Perhaps I'm just stupid but I just couldn't figure it out. Maybe people who are used to capcom vs marvel controls will have no problem and have a great time but I have to say the game is rather unforgiving to someone completely new to the series and doesn't offer a lick of help in my opinion.
