Got a question? Got a comment? Got a concern? Got a beef? Be heard.

Well, Christmas has come and gone. Did everyone get what he or she asked for? My "Peace on Earth" wish is still unfulfilled, but I did get that big box of porno I wanted! I kid, I kid…it came in a bag. Anyway…

Q: I just got my PS2 for X-Mas and want to get one fighting game, but everything seems to be reviewed rather poorly. It seems like the most recommended is Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance. Any suggestions?

A: Well, it depends on what kind of game you want:

  • If you want an arcade style fighting game that is fast and easy to play, find a bargain bin copy of DOA2 Hardcore.
  • If you want an arcade style fighting game that has a slightly higher learning curve, get a Greatest Hits copy of Tekken Tag Tournament.
  • If you like Tekken, but want something a little fresher and a little deeper than TTT go for Tekken 4.
  • If you want an arcade fighting game that will take a long time to learn and an eternity to master, go for Virtua Fighter 4, the deepest arcade fighter on the market.
  • If you want something with depth similar to VF4, but with a better single player experience and weapons combat, grab yourself MK: Deadly Alliance.
  • If 3D games aren’t your bag, the PS2 has a few 2D alternatives, like Guilty Gear X, a beautiful and refreshing fighter from Altus.
  • If you are more of an old school gamer, Capcom vs. SNK 2 is what you’re after. It is the VF4 of 2D fighters.
  • If you want a 2D fighter that’s all about combos in the triple digits, get Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
  • And finally, if you want total realism, go for UFC: Throwdown.
