Does X-Men: Children of the Atom deserve more credit?

The CPS II era of gaming was something that was truly special if you were fan of fighting titles back in the 90’s.  One of the most common fighting games that many people remember from arcade centers was X-Men:Children of the Atom which was the first ever X-Men based title that Capcom had developed.  In terms of sales the game probably did not do as well as people expected on the Sony PlayStation or the Sega Saturn.

However, X-Men Children of the Atom did pave the way for games like Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs Street Fighter, Marvel vs Street Fighter and Marvel vs Capcom.  The visual design for each stage along with the detailed sprites included in Children of the Atom looked amazing.  Also, the gameplay for Children of the Atom was arguably better than the Street Fighter Alpha series.

Even though, the Marvel Super Heroes game was like a spiritual successor to X-Men: Children of the Atom it would have been pretty cool the game had a direct sequel.  The CPS II era of fighting games was arguably one of the best in gaming history and games such as X-Men: Children of the Atom is proof of that.
