As you might expect, this second entry in Capcom’s vs. series is quite similar to the first. The major difference is that now instead of the X-Men there are characters from the whole Marvel universe. Cyclops, Omega Red and Wolverine make it through but the others are replaced by Spidey and co. Fan favourite Iron Man is surprisingly dropped though.

While on the surface things may seem a little too similar there have also been a number of refinements and tweaks implemented. The infinite combo moves are now long gone and the game has undergone a rebalancing. This makes what could have been a somewhat lazy follow up become a decent, streamlined and refined effort. There is also an extra boss character to be dealt with. It may seem like more of the same but it is still as fun as any of the other titles.

It is fairly difficult to play though. Saturn gamers will not only need to import but will also need the 4 Meg Ram cartridge. It's well worth the effort though.
