For players who spent time in arcades in the 1990s, this sort of action may bring back fond memories. Fighting Evolution looks a lot like the games it draws from. But Fighting Evolution doesn't offer much to please gamers who don't already have a fondness for 2-D arcade-style fighting. This is a pretty bare-bones game with limited appeal. The number of fighting modes is small; players have only a short arcade mode, a two-player versus mode (both off- and online), and a training mode to chose from.

Although the online community has some dedicated players, the overall population can be sparse and games hard to find. And it's hard to understand why Capcom didn't include more-familiar characters to broaden the game's appeal.
