I don't know what possessed me to buy this game. Probably, like most others, it's because I remembered how much I enjoyed the original release on my old computer system, and nostalgia got the better of me. I can remember having quite a few Cinemaware games and they consistently had the best graphics for the time. So when I saw that Cinemaware had teamed up with my favorite Nintendo/ Super Nintendo video-game company, Capcom, I thought it would be pretty good.
Nope. The game is terrible! Poor graphics (even during the CG cut-scenes), and the worst sound I've heard (pardon the pun) on any PS2 game I've played so far. Especially the voice acting. It is barely understandable. The game lack depth, even for a turn-based strategy and becomes extremely repetitive quickly. The only positive aspect I can say about the game is that it is very challenging. Actually it is down right hard!
Pass on this one.
