SNK Vs Capcom: MotM

Review 1 - by Kazuya_UK


Ever since fighting games have been a staple of nearly every home console system, pizza parlour, and mall arcade, two companies have championed themselves as leaders in the fighting game genre: SNK and Capcom. This is not surprising, considering the original talent that bought us the capcom fighting classics also jumped ship to SNK. Fans have been waiting for years for the two companies to team up and make the ultimate fighting game. The game of their dreams has arrived, and to use the phrase "match of the millennium" is a gross understatement.


Match of the Millennium, or MotM for short, is a marriage of everything that makes all of the capcom and SNK fighters satisfying and unique. First off, it is loaded to the hilt with options. There is an Olympic mode, which allows you to compete in events to acquire points for additional moves. The events in these games are no pushover and are separate games in and of themselves. There are a host of fighting events, such as survival, first blast, in which the rule is one hit wins and losses, as well as an endurance contest. The second tier of events is exclusive to the SNK and Capcom teams. SNK's games include a snatcher-style shooting game featuring the character from metal slug, as well as the straw doll bonus round from Samurai Shodown featuring Jubei. Capcom's games include a jumping contest in the Ghosts and Goblin's world, as well as a parappa the rapper style dancing game featuring Felicia from Darkstalkers. All of these games are satisfying and rewarding in their own right.

Another option to die hard SNK fans is the networking capabilities of the game with others on the Dreamcast and NGPC. You can play against other people using the link cable, as well as trade information with Card Fighters Clash, and SNK vs Capcom and King of Fighters for the Dreamcast. What is gained from doing all of this has yet to be revealed, but it will no doubt add to the replayability of the game.

All of the great options mentioned above don't hold a candle to the flexibility of options in the Fighting portion of the game itself. Everything found in the capcom vs. series and the king of fighters series that fans have come to know and love is present. You can play single, tag, ala capcom vs series style, or 3 on 3 king of fighter's style. You can also choose between Capcom power meters and extra and advanced modes from the King of Fighters series for any character. As far as character selection goes, this game excels in that area. There are 18 characters to choose from initially, with 4 more on both Capcom and SNK sides, for a total of 26. Not too bad for a portable fighting game.

Graphics & Sound:

The graphics on this game are crisp and clean. All the characters, including the capcom characters, are large and recognizable. Many of the backgrounds highlight the attention to detail SNK is known for, taken from old and new SNK and Capcom fighters. The only gripe in the graphics of this game lies in the lack of color for the characters themselves. The characters of MotM suffer from KoF R2 syndrome; only 3 colors are used for each character. A minor setback which does not detract from the game at all. This also game has some of the best sound I've ever heard on a portable game. Many of the classic Capcom and SNK themes we have all come to know and love are intact and just as catchy as they have ever been.


MotM plays a lot like King of Fighters R2 for NGPC, with similar joystick motions. The only gripes I have with the game are the unbalanced character selection and difficulty pulling off some moves. I had trouble doing hurricane kick motions and dragon punch motions for some of the characters, but this is only because they were based on KoF R2 motions, which is merely a slight drawback. Another thing which detracts from the game is the lopsided number of ken-ryu and terry-Iori type characters. Sure they are popular, but there are many other characters that could have been used. This could also be cleared up once all of the secret characters are revealed.

This is a real player's game. The fun factor and replay Value of this game is though the roof. With an almost unlimited number of options, new moves and characters to earn, networking capabilities, and the game-within-a-game mechanics of the Olympics mode, this game is a true winner game play wise. I have been playing this non-stop for well over a month, and am still coming back for more. All in all, SNK vs Capcom: Match of the Millennium lives up to its name and pedigree. Its Ryu heavy character selection and sometimes tricky controls are offset by its many options, familiarity of characters, and replay Value. Definitely a good first buy for fighting and general video gamers alike.
