Please wait for a few moments before you decide to quit this article and go straight over to the game. It’s true that most people know of this game and its wild, crazy effect on them. But it’s worth a little time to learn more about this old game. Take a break and grab some coffee.

Marvel vs Capcom 2

Marvel vs Capcom 2 is an action fighting game from 2000 that features characters and settings of 2 worlds. Capcom created the game which is the fourth entry in the Marvel Vs Capcom Series. Marvel vs Capcom 2 was developed by Capcom and is the direct sequel to Marvel vs Capcom Clash of Super Heroes.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 has taken on many of the features that were present in its predecessor and added new, significant ones. This game has similar tag-team mechanics as its predecessor but with all-new 3-on-3 combat gameplay and a simplified control system. Marvel vs Capcom 2 has a new character-assistance system. In the visuals, there is a noticeable difference in that the 2D character faces a 3-D background. Previous installments only featured 2D backgrounds. Furthermore, a new’snapback feature’ is included.


Marvel vs Capcom 2 enjoyed a great deal of commercial success when it was first released. Originally, it was released only for Japanese Sega NAOMI consoles. It was such a hit that, sooner or later, the game appeared on many different consoles: Dreamcast (PS2, Xbox 360), PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 as well as iOS.

GameRankings awarded Marvel vs Capcom 2 on Dreamcast a rating of 90%. Metacritic gave the game a 90% rating on Dreamcast. It also scored it 82% on Xbox 360.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 has been the subject of attention from almost all major gaming publications. Destructoid awarded it 9/10 points on Xbox 360. GameSpot scored it at 8.4/10 in Dreamcast, while IGN rated it as 9.3/10 on Dreamcast. NextGeneration gave Marvel Vs Capcom 2 9/10 on Xbox 360.

This was its level of popularity. Marvel vs Capcom 2 on Pandora Platinum will soon be rated again, now that it is available.


Players select three members of their team, and then compete with another three-member team. This is a tag-team battle. The Variable System has been improved to enable players at any stage of the battle to call in additional team members. In reimplementing “Variable Assist,” players can ask one member of their offscreen team to execute a single, special move. This can be any of three types.

While waiting, characters in the team who aren’t engaged in any combat or active wait will regenerate slowly their health bar. For example, Team A is the winner if Team B’s characters lose all their health bars within the specified time. A second winning factor depends on the timer. After the game clock runs out, the character who has the most health remaining is declared to be the winner.

The bottom meter, in addition to the health and life gauges on top, fills up as each character deals or receives damage. It allows players to use special attacks such as Hyper combos, Delayed hyper combos or variable combinations.

Marvel vs Capcom Clash of Super Heroes implemented six attack buttons that were divided into low, medium and high strength punches or kicks. Marvel vs Capcom 2 New Age of Heroes, however, implements an alternative control scheme. The six-button scheme now has four attack and two assistance buttons.
