Game: Marvel Vs Capcom 2
Year: It came out in 2000.
System: I played it on the PS3.
Was it fun?
I have played the first Marvel Vs. Capcom game and also the third one. I never played this one before. I really enjoy these games 2 and 3 are great games. The problem with fighting games is, there only fun if you play against other people. Unfortunately, its such an older game that the people I know aren’t going to take the time to get into this game. So yes, I had a lot of fun playing it. I would recommend it to anyone but if you’re looking to get into a fighting game, I would recommend a newer game where there is an actual fighting scene.
Are there any similar fighting games?
Ask anyone who plays fighting games and they’ll tell you that the Marvel games are unique. Instead of one character, you pick 3 on your team. You only fight as one at a time and during the match you can call out you’re other member to assist you and do a specific attack. Not only that but its a complete combo based game and as a warning there a lot of infinites. So No, the only game thats similar is Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
Favorite character to use?
Since this game is about using 3 characters and having a team, I’ll pick my top 3 rather than just picking one.
Venom- I liked using venom, he hit hard. He had a great neutral game where he could keep people back a little bit because he had such great range. Not to mention he a couple of cool supers
Wolverine-I will admit this one, I could mash buttons and things happened. It was exciting and I liked it. To be honest, if I were to take this game more seriously I probably wouldn’t have used him but messing around with him for a couple hours, I had fun using him.
B.B. Hood-Some of the best projectiles in the game and they hit hard. Even if they were blocking, her moves did a great amount of chip. Some games, I would build up the meter, get her and then spam the supers and watch as I take down my opponents health.
Would you play it again?
I would absolutely play this again but every Thursday we get together and play a random fighting game for a couple hours. So maybe I could convince my friends to play this again some week.
How would you rate it and why?
If they make a new Marvel Vs Capcom 4, I would play the game non stop but this game is 15 years old. Fighting games are tough, you have play what other people are playing. For a fighting game though, this is definitely a top 10 game.
