    I played the 2 Player version of this on PS3 and it was awesome – Xbox360 was for sure a a purchase day one. I tried to play the demo on Xbox360, just to try it (I was going to and did buy it), but I was too pre-occupied to connect another controller so I unlocked the full game after 20 something seconds. It is kind of ‘not good’ to have a one-player arcade to play a little of the game. Street Fighter II HyperFighting let’s you experience the game a little.

    This is one awesome game, the best fighting game on DLC for me (compared to SFHD Remix and SamshoII). If you’re not a fighting game fan, skip of this, just liike if it was a puzzle game, if you do not like puzzle games.

    Why is this game awesome?

    1. It’s Marvel vs Capcom 2
    2. It has ONLINE Multiplayer
    3. Has a Six player Lobby WITH Spectating! (with VOICE!)
    4. The d-pad control is FAR SUPERIOR than previous Capcom fightings games on a standard Xbox360 controller
    5. You get ALL of this for $15!
    6. MegaMan, Spiderman, Iceman, Rogue and Gambit along with Wolverine are “sweet”.

    If that does not get your excited or curiousity….. *?*

    OK, I may be pissing a lot of “hardcore fighters” off, but this game sucks! I can’t get past the main single-player game unless i continue every 2 rounds or so, the online mode is basically broken. Its more like “first lick, wins” Its a button mashing game. period. If i had an arcade joystick I might be writing a completely different post. But in all seriousness, the demo didn’t even give you a chance to play the core game at all… i sat there and played a rag doll controller 2 player with no fun or idea of the true game at all. i loved this game 10 years ago in the arcade but on xbl and with a 1200 point price i feel like I have been ripped off. Honestly what skill is there involved in this game? Anybody who wants to bitc* and moan over my post please be ready to respond with 15 combos and their corresponding button sequences for 3 characters at least. I bet you dont know them (and oh RYU’s fireball doesn’t count) The 10 or 12 times i tried to play online were sole button mashing sessions. And HD graphics? whatever!! its based on the dreamcast build and it looks just like that no matter what “filter” is enabled. Worse 1200 points spent. I’d rather play battlefield.

    I would have pulled the trigger for 800 points, but for 800 points I think I’ll pass at 1200. Maybe it is a future deal of the week?

    Please quit calling this a port and acting like it’s a rip off, this is not a port. Why? BECAUSE IT HAS ONLINE MULTIPLAYER YOU MORONS! The online factor alone makes this worth every penny, actually i would definitely be happy to pay more. I can sit on my couch, and play marvel vs capcom 2 ONLINE. This is ABSOLUTELY in no way, shape, or form a port of the old game. wow the character sprites look the same, who the hell cares are people really that shallow that the graphics effect the gameplay that much? Graphics are the least of my concern when a game is good it is good regardless, it’s about the gameplay. Learn to open your mouth only when you have something accurate to point out.
