More western gamers would do well to check out obscure titles like this one. This game was a pleasant surprise.
Furthermore the story mode is perhaps the game's most unique and alluring aspect. Super story mode has you following the adventure of the hero characters and it is presented in a series of about 40 episodes. Each episode has you playing a mini-game or a single round of fighting. What is so impressive is that these seemingly tacked on sequences are actually done very well. The games range from side scrolling beat-um-ups to shoot-um-ups to lightning fast quick time events and more. After each sequence you are presented with a story segment to continue the narrative. The narrative however is at times very difficult to follow and/or understand at times and many of the characters are androgynous causing them to be a lot less cool then the writers want you to believe. Regardless of the characters' styles however their special moves and super combos are always cool looking and as satisfying to use on your opponents as they are heart-sinking to have dealt to you.
I'm not familiar with the source material so I can't tell you how faithful it is to the comic book or whatever this game is based on. What I can tell you, is that the story mode has a lot of replay because the more you play it the more content you can unlock (mini games from the story, pictures, hidden characters). At the core of this game is the quality fighting game the arcade mode is well done and each character has a unique intro and finally as well as a specified and sensible enemy list. Meaning that you won't fight yourself and the bad guys fight good guys and the good guys fight bad guys. This game is also great for playing with your gaming rivals.
I can easily recommend this game to fans of 2D fighters and since this game is consistent with Capcom's usual quality I suggest you give it your consideration if you like the Street Fighter franchise.
