Video Review


While most character models look a little rough around the edges, the game actually looks rather nice in motion, which each suit being animated absolutely terrifically, making fights a whole lot more exciting and fun to watch. While the lack of any sort of anti-aliasing stings in places, it leads to a game that has almost no noticeable performance issues. The arenas aren't terribly interesting, for the most part, but there are a few stages that look pretty good, and the character artwork is great.

Audio Review


With a huge cast of characters spread across so many different series, it's great that every single character is voiced by their original Japanese actors (where possible, of course). There's a ton of music from each series, too, and while it heavily varies in quality, there are a ton of fantastic tracks here, though we unfortunately don't get any of the vocal tracks seen in the Japanese release of the game due to licensing issues here.

Final Thoughts

A good way to experience the basics of the terrific 'Extreme VS' games, but it absolutely falters compared to the rest of the series due to the lack of any sort of online play and a far smaller roster than it deserves. There's a long, content-rich campaign mode that ends up being far more fun than I'd ever expected. I sincerely hope later entries have a similar mode, but then also have online multiplayer.
