SNK VS Capcom: Card Fighters DS
The warning signs were all there, but I ignored them all. I’ll be completely honest, even when I saw the screenshots, I had a sinking feeling, so I didn’t expect this game to be as great of a classic as the original, but I thought it would have some semblance to the original (or its slightly modified Japan-only sequel). The latter was true, but, well… that’s the only source material from any earlier titles, and they tore that from the shared traits of its classic predecessor. Another hint came to me from the boxart. Look at the back – no screenshots whatsoever. That alone made my heart sink. I mean, screenshots are an expected part of any game box, be it for a console or portable game. Of course, from the beginning, I tried not to compare Card Fighters DS to its classic NGPC predecessor (mainly because I knew no game could’ve compared to it, due to my nostalgic memories of the original), but even without those lowered expectations, I can safely say SNK Playmore screwed up…big time.
