|Setting the Scene:
On one side is a behemoth of a man. Here stands a man wearing ripped pants with no shoes or a shirt. Exposed is a massive chest with mammoth biceps. As you stare into his eyes you can't help but feel fear creep into every fiber of your being. That monstrous stare causes people to tremble and shake. Before you stands a man with gamma radiation pulsing through his blood. Flexing with fists clenched is brute force in its most incredible form. Oh yeah he's also green. He is the Hulk.
In the heat of the night, at the scene of the crime, he arrives just in time. He is your friendly neighborhood Spiderman. As they stand together waiting for their opponents, they ponder what immense power they will have to face together. In a world where mutants posses power and good is interlocked with the never ending battle against evil, heroes stand against all odds. They have fought the likes of Magneto, Dr Octopus, and so many others. Who is their latest foe?
On the streets is an expert fighter. Quiet, disciplined, focused, and oh so deadly. Armed with techniques learned after years of training, he walks with the silent confidence knowing that his power is unmatched. By his side is a small blue robot that is more human than most of the scum he has defeated. Armed with an array of weapons, the creation of Dr. Light is programmed to suppress all that is evil. Ryu and Mega Man are great heroes in their worlds. Who's next?
Two unexpected sides from different universes are waiting to participate in an ultimate crossover event.
Now at the dawn of possibilities and in a place where universes have collided is a platform for combat. But unlike previous opponents both sides have always risen because of the greater good. But who will prevail when there is a clash of super heroes?
Sound and Vision:
The music can be classified as average as far as fighter games go. It is driving and typical of Capcom fighters, but it just didn't go the extra mile for me. Each character does have their own specific grunts and groans to individualize all the heroes. The special moves have there own explosions and blasts. The background music was kind of stale and didn't really add much to the overall fun factor of the game. The explosions and the shooting projectile sound were what you would find in any quality fighting game.
The graphics were decent and somewhat surprising for a 2D fighter on the Playstation. It really seems that Capcom has got their shit down when programming 2D fighters on the Playstation. Supposedly the graphics for this specific genre just shouldn't be this good on the PSX. There were plenty of colors to appease the eye. Each character has an alternate image to distinguish from same character selection during a battle and each hero looked true to form. The special moves looked very good and after executing a special move a blast of colors and explosions fill the screen. Decent for a 2D fighter game, not great, but decent. The best part of the graphics was the character sizes. They where pretty big and allowed you to see good detail. I was also impressed by the near total absence of slowdown it's about time.
Sound and vision can be summarized in one word, average. Yeah there were plenty of colors and the individuals looked like similar to their original counterpart, But this game looks and plays the same as its predecessor. Where are the new killer moves and special attacks for the sequel? At best this is a second edition minor upgrade from the first Capcom / Marvel crossover.
