1080p, widescreened (although you can set it back to 4:3 if you want) version of the Dreamcast/Naomi (see entry 1257) classic manic team fighting game. The true fans keep the DC flame burning for this game, but old softcore me appreciates the convenience, and extra sharpness, of this later version, which of course has everything unlocked from the get-go.

- there are two Wolverines! Metal claw Wolverine, and a bone claw Wolverine with fewer moves
- you can just pick the same character repeatedly?!?
- picking characters with a diff one of the 6 attack buttons gives different colors--not all of them good, necessarily!
- I still can't play Colossus :p
- Mecha Zangief lives! (back-uppercut+LK) But don't do his metal mode-only super (360+K or something), that will change him back

Sure helps to have a big gun super vs the boss!
 
I finally realized the difference between Arcade Mode and Score Attack Mode is that in Score Attack Mode you can't continue--and I usually don't want to continue so I should play that mode! And the stage-transition background is green rather than blue. : P

Playing Score Attack Mode with the two teams of Thanos, Wolverine, and Hayato, then Captain Commando, T.Bonne (Tron Bonne), and Rogue on Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on PS3! I cleared it on the single credit with CapCom, T.Bonne & Rogue! : D
 
This game is good fun. Definitely helps to have beam supers against the boss though! ; ) Love T.Bonne's Servbot super, with his big plastic hammer. ^_^ And Hayato's humming lightsaber sword!
 
(Hayato Kanzaki is the main character from Capcom's "Star Gladiator" fighting game series: Star Gladiator on PS1, Plasma Sword on DC); Star Gladiator was originally meant to be a Star Wars Game!)
 
Aside from having no Continues and a green inter-match background, Score Attack Mode also differs from Arcade Mode in having only one difficulty level--it feels equivalent to the default (Normal or whatever it is) difficulty level in Arcade Mode.
 
The illustrator for the game generally goes by the name "Bengus"; he has other aliases, but I can't find any that would seem to match up with the "MF" listed as the sole listing under "Illustrators" in MvC2's credits.
