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.

Our review:

Kids say (5):

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom features some quirky characters that many players in the U.S. might not be familiar with, but the brawler delivers simple yet highly entertaining fighting. Controls are very easy to pick up compared to other fighters, and the game features bright, colorful visuals. Characters offer a broad array of attacks and battle strategies for those seeking a deeper experience. Some of the character stories, however, are incredibly bizarre and hard to follow. Fans curious about the fighting genre might find this game an easy stepping stone.

Online interaction: Players can compete with others via Wi-Fi, but there's no online chat option.
