The latest by Capcom is the star-studded crossover fighting game, which takes familiar gameplay systems and characters but offers it in a completely new way, asking players to re-examine their understanding of it as one complete game. The game is not just fun and rewarding to play, but also remedies some of the biggest issues its predecessor had. It is all held together by a functional but crude frame. The biggest shakeup in the game comes with the addition of the Infinity Stones. One stone can be taken into battle alongside two fighters, and each of them has a unique ability called "Infinity Surge" that can be used just like any other special move. These abilities open the door to a world of creative combos, setups, and strategies that the series has never had before. Infinite feels like a much more grounded game than its predecessors. The mechanics underlying the game make it an outstanding fighting combat.
