Capcom Fighting Evolutions
A GREAT CONCEPT THAT WAS HALF BAKED
I know this game has gotten TONS of hate and I can understand why, as it doesn't come close to being as good as other Street Fighter or VS. titles but I have to admit that I did have alot of fun with it. Clearly, anyone who hasn't played SFII, SFAlpha3, SFIII, and DarkStalkers (not counting Red Earth being that most people never played it) and are not familiar with each games fighting system will wonder "whats the big deal"?. I think that the concept of fighting with each characters respective fighting system was, and still is, a fantastic idea as it really does add a whole new layer of depth to the fighting. 1 of my biggest problems with CFE was that they literally just "cut and pasted" the fighters straight from their series, so if you play with or fight against any of the Darkstalker characters for example, they look EXACTLY the way they did from their Darkstalker 1-3 days, and needless to say its quite ugly though i did get use to it. But the BIGGEST problem with it was the INCREDIBLY SMALL roster. Ryu, Guile, Zangief, Bison, and Akuma make up the SF2 roster. Sakura, Rose, Guy, and Karin make up the SFAlpha roster. Urien, Alex, Yun, and Chun Li make up the SF3 roster. Demitri, Anakaris, Felicia, Jedah, and Pyron for DarkStalkers. And Hydron, Leo, Kenji, and Hauzer make up the Red Earth roster. Then you have the one exclusive new character which is a girl named Ingrid who they give absolutely no back story to. All together thats only 23 fighters and with all the omissions that Capcom left out from each of these fighting series, it really is baffling. Thats not to say that I think the game is bad, its just that it could have been so much more. But like I said earlier, I did have alot of fun with it and if you can look past the small roster and if you really are familiar with each of these different fighting systems, then I think you'll get a good amount of enjoyment (as I did) with Fighting Evolution. Overall i would rate it a 6.5
This game is good, but could be better. The game only has like about 3 ways to play. And as for the characters, I wish they have put more characters from the ones on Marvel vs Capcom. But other than that, the gameplay, sound, and graphics are really good. If you are a hardcore gamer, you'll find this game really good by coming up with some combos.
