The SNK vs Capcom The Match Of The Millenium Review

Cartridge size: 4 MB
This is my 1st game for the Neo Geo Pocket Colour (Color for America) and it’s chock full of stuff to play. Apart from the standard tournament mode where you play through to the end like in regular fighting games, there's also an Olympic mode which gives you all sorts of cool extras. You can help Arthur get bags of gold or treasure while jumping over small platforms, avoiding the red devil thingys in Ghost Trick, do dance moves with Felicia in Cat Walk, and even notch up your reflexes with Blade Arts. The SNK manager is Rimururu, and the Capcom manager is Karin. You can talk to them also, and they’ll give you tips and what not.
Even though there’s only 2 buttons to use, the game is still very playable, and the excellent d-pad on the Neo Geo Pocket makes cracking off super moves and what not, a breeze. The initial characters are Kyo, Iori, Mai, Terry, Ryo, Haohmaru, Nakoruru, Athena and Leona for SNK, and Ken, Morrigan, Zangief, Sakura, Dan, Guile, Ryu, Chun-Li and Felicia for Capcom. All the characters have big heads so you can tell who they are during the fights, but the art work versions are more proportional.
Doing the moves with Felicia.
Giving Zangief some biffo.

Graphics: It’s all pretty colourful really, and as far as the NGPC is concerned it looks pretty spiffy. The characters are all well drawn considering how small they are and the artwork type bits look great also. 93%
The animation is all very smooth, and there’s cool background stuff that happens aswell. 95%
There’s some good music in the game, and the sound effects aren’t bad either. 88%
Crank up the difficulty level, and you’ll be treated to some hard core action, yet it’s still challenging on the easier levels also. 90%
There’s plenty of stuff to do here with the Olympic mode, and a generous amount of characers to master in any section of the game. 96%
A must have title for your Neo Geo Pocket that’s packed with gameplay. Plus you can connect up to your Dreamcast also in this game for SNK vs Capcom, and Dream Match 1999 (?). There’s also an option for transferring data from Card Fighters Clash. So if you happen to find a copy somewhere, don’t think twice about buying this excellent game. 97%
