Sure, the wii doesn't have the power of the 360 or ps3 but the game delivers solid game play that fans of capcom fighting games have come to love.
Nothing ground breaking but it's solid. Plus, the backgrounds aren't static! That's a plus! Though the facial expressions aren't fully 100% static, it mostly is but the 3d models look a-ok! (plus Morrigan for the first time got a makeover after being a reused 2d sprite for so long). But hey, for a wii game, it sure looks impressive considering it's a port of the arcade game.
Fans of the Mavel vs Capcom series will feel at home with it's fast paced game play. But with tag mechanics of that much like tekken tag tournament. But you can call is assists for as assist attack just like Marvel vs Capcom. As stated, it's like tekken tag as you can switch on the fly or choose to press the assist button with an attack to do a super-like cancel to keep a combo going at the expense of red regenerate health. My only gripe though is that the button to call an assist is the same button to tag you team mate in which can get frustrating at times when I want to switch but end up calling an assist instead. But I found out out that I had to long press to tag instead of assists which wasn't so bad after I got used to it but still irks me time to time. Other then that, game play is solid. You have your arcade mode, survival mode, and vs mode (which is only reserved for player vs player sadly. No player vs Com. And no online since the Nintendo Wfc service has ended). Also for you old school fans who love secrets/unlockables, there are characters you can unlock through game play.
Music and sounds make up as much a game to me as much as game play. Music wise, the ost (original sound track) is ok. Not too annoying but nothing stood out to me (though if you recognize any of the stage themes from the games you played/liked or animes you've seen produced by Tatsunoku, you may get a kick outta this) . The sound effects when you land hits are satisfying to hear though. Especially when you land the entirety of your super. Nothing sounds like compressed sound effects and all in all, it's a-ok.
Is it worth it?
To me, it's worth every penny as I got a lot on enjoyment as the fast paced chaotic game play. Unlockables game me motive to do arcade plus with the endings being a bit entertaining as well (depending on what character landed the last hit on the final big baddie at the end of every capcom arcade mode). Overall, since it's a fighting game, it has extremely high replay value, a game I can revisit and have a blast with some friends or myself down the road. If you're looking for a solid fighting game on the wii, look no further, Tastsunoko vs Capcom has got you settled!
