This game is by far my most favorite game ever. The single players story mode is entertaining and can keep a person occupied for days on end in the attempt to get all of the characters unlocked. Also, the music score is entertaining and engaging. What really sets this game apart from most of the other fighting type games though is the multiplayer. The characters are versatile and utilize the whole stage in order to fight. Gameplay depends on skill, and button mashing will get a player nowhere. You can have fun with this game whether you want to play it just for fun or for competing against your friends. Either way, this game satiate all of the fighting game desires. For me, I've been playing this game on end for a couple years now, and I have yet to become bored with it.
