GamePro: Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Review

GamePro writes: "As the first new "Versus" title to be released in a decade, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has quite a legacy to live up to. While the Street Fighter franchise is the stallion in Capcom's fighting stable, the Versus series has its own dedicated fanbase, owed in large part to the success of the Marvel branded titles. Tatsunoko is an interesting title, however, because it represents a rather large gamble on Capcom's behalf: for one, it abandons the now familiar three-on-three matches in favor of the two-on-two tag-team formula of earlier titles, and perhaps most significantly, it features an intelluctal property partnership with Japanese animation studio Tatsunoko whose assorted heroes are popular overseas but lack the cultural cachet of Marvel's spandex squad here in the States. You also cannot discount the fact that the game is exclusive to the Wii, a console that isn't exactly known for fighting titles."

The story is too old to be commented.

That is with out support from the big franchises and zero hype from the hardcore.

It's good to see this game getting great reviews and more important it's fun! Capcom is starting to become the power house they once where.

The N4G score attributes a perfect score for this game via Gamepro, but the link says 4 out of 5 (at least as I'm typing this).

Good score, regardless. However, I disagree with this part of the review:

"You can use the Classic Controller, a GameCube controller or a Wii/Gamecube joystick for 'tournament standard' controls seen in other 2D fighters, but these options require an additional purchase and will really only make sense to gamers who plan on investing copious amounts of time in the game."

If you don't have the classic controller yet, and you're a game reviewer, what the heck have you been waiting for? It's not an additional purchase for this game, it's primarily a purchase for VC/WiiWare. Trust me, the people who will buy Tat v. Cap already have a classic controller or GC/Wavebird laying around.
