Simply the best fighting game the Wii has to offer (besides SSBB)

"What the heck is a Tatsunoko?" you might be asking when your teens talk about this game. No, it's not some sort of Japanese dish. It's an anime company known for Gatchaman (known here as Battle of the Planets/G-Force), Yatterman, Tekkaman/Tekkaman Blade (the latter is known here as Teknoman), Karas (definitely known here), and Neo Human Casshern (who had a live-action movie that New Line Cinema released in the States). Back in 2008, Capcom franchise veterans and Tatsunoko characters duked it out in the Japanese game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes. But it was never intended to reach the US; however, fan reception made Capcom localize it. The differences between the 2 versions, Cross Generation of Heroes and Ultimate All Stars, are too subtle to notice. Only 1 character from Cross Generation was removed (a genie named Hakushon Daimao), and 3 Tatsunoko characters, plus two from Capcom, were added in his place. Many of the minigames were removed, too, and the character endings aren't animated. However, none of this gets in the way of the true reason people love this sort of game: the fighting. If you're an anime fan, you might recognize a few familiar faces, and if you're a Capcom fan, well, you'll recognize everyone on that side. The fighting is more simple to learn than, say, Street Fighter IV, but it's deep enough that a hardcore pro would want to get caught playing this awesome game with some awesome visuals on the Wii. Kudos to Capcom for a great localization. This game's only rated Teen because of the fighting, but like Street Fighter IV, etc, it's not graphic and bloody at all. More violent than Super Smash Bros., but less than Mortal Kombat. On the sex side of things, we do see a few skimpy outfits (Morrigan and Doronjo are the biggest offenders, but you only see some cleavage, nothing too bad). Sometimes, the characters say the Japanese word "kuso" (which roughly translates to "sh*t"), but in English text, the mildest profanity is used. Just "d*mn" and "h*ll". Overall, yeah, if you like Street Fighter or Marvel vs. Capcom and have a Wii, you owe it to yourself to get Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars. However, be warned: you might want to buy the $80 TvC arcade stick to go with it. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but hey, just wanted to let you know. GET THIS GAME!

Awesome game!

Awesome game. Not a lot of cussing, the worst is the 'a' word. No blood at all. Awesome two player combos and ultimates, and action! And it has some cute girls. Anyway, I definitely recommend this game.

Street Fighter meets Smash Bros. Brawl

Great 2D fighting game!

Street Fighter meets Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

It's a fighting game, but it's cartoon violence, nothing too gory.
