A shame it wouldn't get an 'HD' treatment to have online matchmaking if it is the PS2 ver.
IIRC, it's 1600 Yen on JPN PSN right?

Outside of weird fanboyism, I don't see how this statement can be made.

It's the same game as the DC port and the Naomi original. This isn't some janky altered port like Xbox/GC CvS2EO.

I would love an HD version for CvS2 but who knows if SNK will be on board for that. I guess this is better than nothing. At least I don't have to pay a lot of money for a used copy.

Hah I've felt the same for some time now everytime I watch CvSNK2. It's like...poking...blocking, but at least there's a good damage output. Wish it had more flashy combo options outside A-Groove tho =/

I think Evil Ryu, at least, was considered for being 'un-banned' since he isn't very overpowered.

Evil Ryu was available from the beginning wasn't he? I thought the only unlocks were Shin Akuma and God Rugal.

From a PAL perspective as well, it was bordered 50Hz. The Dreamcast version ran full screen, full speed, 60Hz. And it supported VGA. No comparison.

dc speed is also closer to the arcade. it isn't really a huge deal though since most cvs2 tournies were always run on ps2 anyway.

i don't think any game is slower than cvs2. even with lower entrant numbers cvs2 tournies would take as long or longer than anything else being run. it didn't help that 95% of the time matches would just come down to the anchors with minor differences in meter and health. it's just awful for spectators.

Since there is no online and it's not a remake of any sort, I don't think people will pick it back up again.

But you're right, people would hate the the sheer amount of block stringy goodness this has to offer. Not to mention Sagat's crouching fierce.

More importantly, the sprites are a tiny bit smaller and the timing is slightly off.

DC is a better port, it's basically the arcade since Naomi <-> DC.

PS2 is still playable and easier for tournament organizers to deal with than the DC version, it just isn't the best port.

Was the PAL version of CvsS2 terrible? I'm not sure it included a 60Hz mode.
This is one of my favorite fighters but I know I won't play it again if I buy it.
Maybe on sale.

Are you sure you're talking about the actual Xbox and GC versions, which are pretty great yet just happen to have a 100% optional simplified control mode?

I do not understand the fuss. It's not a game getting HD treatment and they have not cut out features as its the standard PS2 version and will be a part of the PS2 classics like those already on PSN.

The game is incredible, it was upon release and still is today.
