Marvel vs Capcom 2 (universal) by capcom [ $4,99 -> $0,99]

Price drop on brazilian App Store. The same should happen on US App Store soon.




I know it's a great game, but is it a good port?

Are you sure this is on sale? It still shows up as $4.99 on the app description here and on my iTunes window I have loaded up. I saw this topic the minute it was posted and thought maybe it would just take a little time for the price to refresh... but no such luck yet.

Where did you hear it would be $0.99?

It will probably be $0.99 in an hour here in the US. Appzapp already shows the drop.

Thinking about grabbing this, but I remember the not so kind reviews.First, the sprites, iirc, look terrible. Second is control issues. This is the type of fighting game that requires a lot of buffered input and precision...can someone who owns this provide some impressions?

I had no problems with controls, and the sprites aren't that terrible. Sound quality sucks though.
For 0,99 I'd say get it.

The whole game is there. Just hampered with weird controls. At 99 cents go for it, not much to lose

I can't recommend it. It's one of the worst ports I've ever seen on the AppStore (Mega Man X is still the worst, though). I'm a big fan of Marvel vs Capcom franchise yet I couldn't stand having this installed on my phone.

Save these 99 cents to Samurai Shodown II that is coming in a few weeks.

Throwing my hat in with the "hell yeah" crowd. Imperfect controls? Check. But it is entirely worth your buck, yes.
