[QUOTE] I couldn't, and still can't defend CFJ. For a game all about recycled assets regardless of animation, palette, or even resolution to the point it's painful to look at (and let's not get started with the backgrounds, they look worse than KOF 2002's), the package is miserable. Up until release, I was sure they would double the amount of characters for the consumer version. It wasn't possible the game was just that. It couldn't be it, could it? It was a crossover, supposedly to make up for the failure of CFAS (and salvage Ono's job, so in the end it was worth it), with a balance almost as bad as MvC2, and so far the only real "Capcom vs Capcom" fighting game we ever had... I hated the Marvel side of MvC, I wanted the same game with the lame super heroes replaced by Capcom's, and instead I got... this. Even with the limited roster, there is plenty wrong with it. Why so many Street Fighters instead of some of the characters from the broader Capcom universe, such as Strider (who was part of CFAS)? Why not save Ruby Heart? WHY YUN? It could have been so much more. The obviously ridiculous budget (for a game sold full price) felt almost insulting. It salvaged Ingrid while dooming the other two characters (D.D. and... Luke???), while giving her an absolutely terrible song that prevented me from even getting close to her stage (at least Sakura's song was bearable). Finally, the system of changing character between rounds at will was stupid and only added massive amounts of random as [/URL][/b][/s][/i][color=660000]-- Message too long, Autoquote has been Snipped --[/color][/QUOTE] I should note that my friends and I were never under any illusion that Capcom Fighting Jam/Evolution was a "good" game. It was basically an official MUGEN game with all the incongruous graphics and broken gameplay, but without the benefit of a huge roster. It was such an obvious lazy, rushed cash grab. But it had Hauzer. Put Hauzer into any game and I will have fun. Seriously, look at how great he is!

I showed Hauzer to a professor of mine who was a [URL=http://gnsi.science-art.com/2012GA/files/9913/3852/4113/Paul_Hudson.jpg]leading[/URL] dinosaur [URL=https://38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbwtbjQmEQ1ru0a5oo1_500.gif]reconstructionist[/URL] and he thought he was great. He was really impressed with the artistry and anatomical accuracy in Capcom games in general.
