      This game is easily one of my all time favorite CPS2 Capcom games its insane and an amazing fighter.

      The parallax in it owns(was crazy at the time I thinkt here is like 6 layers or 4), animation was so good, amazing music and sound FX and epic gameplay. The fighter is mega top notch.

      Only Marvel Super Heroes out did it in my opinion, the VS games that followed owned as well of course and Alpha 2 but these two have a certain 2D magic that you just can not explain.

      Thanks for the vid G Man
