Marvel VS Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes

January 6, 2012

So here we go, MvC2 lets talk about what changed and what was for the better and what was for the worse!  MvC 2  Was released only a year later in 2000.

MvC2 brought the roster from a pretty good 22 characters to a huge, 57 large roster!  Now with such a large roster comes good and bad.  The assist becomes your partners of your team, which was a cooler idea honestly, and choosing from three assist types made play styles vary.

The Good of a larger roster:
So many characters, so many favorites, so many people to pick from.  With a bunch of choices you can’t really go wrong.  This gives a nice variety of teams to form.

The Bad of a larger roster:
Some characters became the staple of every single team.  Because the more characters you have, the harder the game is to balance.  The Sentinel is the number 1 unbalanced character of all fighting games ever.  His assist were cheap, he was WAY to strong, and if you didn’t play him you pretty much crippled yourself.  Icemans defense was way to much and his attacks were to overwhelming.  The list goes on, Magneto, Storm, it just got a bit ridiculous, but Sentinel was the worst.

The air combo system was a little more simplified but still took time to learn and master.  The addition of multiple supers back to back was a nice touch, and certain people work really well together.  This made for a great, fast paced, game, but Sentinel ruined the whole experience, especially when you could play online with the Xbox Arcade version of the game.

So with the ups and downs, it was still a fighter that will be forever known as the craziest fighter with the biggest roster you could imagine!

Next We will face: Marvel VS Capcom 3: The Fate of Two Worlds/Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3: The Fate of Two Worlds.  What changed once again?  How is it better and how is it worse?  I suppose we will see.  Thanks as always for reading, i hope you come back for part 3.
