My all-time favorite fighting game is the classic 2D fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
The game pits characters from Marvel Comics and Capcom’s video games against each other in crazy three-on-three battles. Some of the characters are popular favorites, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, Dr. Doom, the Hulk, and Wolverine among other X-Men come to mind from the Marvel side. Mega Man, Ryu, Ken, Akuma, and a ton of Street Fighter characters are all part of the Capcom character gallery.
The game isn’t particularly balanced, some characters are dreadful, and some are way overpowered, but there are so many characters, and even more combination of characters that the game is endless fun (Over 10 years later, and I do play it on a fairly regular basis).
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is officially coming to XBox Live and the PlayStation Network. You will be able to download it for $15.00 sometime in the near future.
