Get ready to Fight – Arcade Style
One of the classic and legendary games from yesteryear is now available on iOS. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was regarded as one of, if not the greatest fighting games ever made. It brought a whole new type of gaming to the arena with a new level of speed, precision and intensity to arcade fighters that had not been seen before. You were able to seamlessly switching between characters and calling your other fighters in for assists which was something truly innovative. There was also the deep combos and mind blowing special moves that the fighting genre hadn’t even close to explored yet. MVC2 made gamers rethink the way a fighter could be played.
12 years on you are now able to relive those glory moments on your iOS device. It still features all the insane moves, cool characters and everything else that hardcore fans expect from MVC2. This is a straight port of the original game, which means absolutely nothing has changed. This classic is still in pristine condition.
One drawback is the character selection as the pictures are very small and if you have anything more than a toddler’s fingers size you may struggle to choose the correct character.
Once you select your character, it is time to choose one of the two available control methods. There are the easy controls, and the normal controls. Easy maps all of your special moves to the special button, while normal has a more traditional control scheme with more punch and kick buttons.
If you are using the easy control method, you will be holding the special button and sliding up, down, left and right to launch different moves. You will use this same method for bringing in your partners for assists and special moves. With the normal method, you will still be sliding up and down on your teammates to call them in for assists and special moves; the difference is you can now choose which one you want to call upon. Whether you choose the easy controls, or the normal controls, you can still use the options menu to tweak the locations of the buttons.
MVC2 features a few different modes to keep you busy. There is the standard arcade mode, which is where you will spend most of your time. There is also the score attack mode, which allows you to try to beat your high scores earned throughout the game. They also have a training mode, where you can practice your moves. This is a great place to develop your skills and learn the combo’s for your favourite character.
They also have also included a multiplayer player option for over Bluetooth. You and a friend can synchronize your devices together and battle it out just like you used to do at the arcades back in the day. This is by far the most fun way to play Marvel vs. Capcom 2!
The sound is also fantastic. It sounds exactly as it did back in the day, and that is a good thing. It uses all the same songs from the old game, and some of them were among my favorite songs in video games. The fighting sounds good, and the game just has overall good sound design.
