Capcom vs. SNK – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence, Suggestive Themes

Parents have little to fear from Capcom Versus SNK. While the game has garnered a Teen rating, this is an old-school fighting game, meaning there's none of the blood and guts of games like Mortal Kombat. The violence in the game is more cartoonish than realistic, complete with throwing fireballs and the like.

2D fighting fans will want to grab this game immediately. 2D games are a dying breed, and this is easily one of the best ones to come out in recent memory. 

Fighting fans will also want to give this title a look. While it's not as technically stunning as something like Soul Calibur, the action here is fast, furious, and fun.  

Casual gamers will probably want to adopt a rent before you buy approach. The game is a lot of fun, but requires a fair amount of dedication in order to unlock all of the hidden goodies. Because the point system for the extras can be unforgiving, many will find that core game gets old in short order.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will miss out on the battle shouts and background music, but sound isn't all that important in this fighting game.
