right on man, i totally agree with u. the only reason why this game is out is to balance the gameplay. capcom vs snk was a great game, but its also pretty kool to have the game in the kof fighting style. i personally love the way the capcom characters look in this game. something new, and i always wondered how they would look the snk world. *though zero looked kinda funky*i also cant get enough of the sound effects from each character. like bison's psycho power has that weird noise when he punches, or the "swish" during a hurricane kick. thats pretty creative hehe. the only thing i saw that was kind of a downfall is the music. i wouldve prefered to have the old individual stage music from their own respected games like Ryu's sf music, or Terry's fatal fury music. Other than that, its a refreshing break from the Capcom game system, which i love btw, but everyones got their own opinion which is kool too. its a toughy too once u get to like the preboss.
it's really a matter of how you percieve things.
capcom vs snk was made to be the battle of the characters in the capcom style, which is why some people perfer it.
however i (and some others) saw that the art for the game sucked (snk characters loooked like crap).
and being that i'm one of those that isn't really fond of the usual capcom game engine style i didn't really like the game (but i hafta admit it's not a bad game)
but the point is, it was made to FEEL like a capcom game.
on the other hand, snk vs capcom was made to be the battle of the characters in teh snk style.
i personally think the capcom characters look better than when capcom draws them, but then again that's just my opinion.
but again, this game was MADE to feel like an snk game (and if you're a vetern of the kof games, you'll feel right at home.)
it just feels like an snk game, and it wouldn't feel like that if it was made with another engine (like the awesome garou engine)

I don't like the unbalanced play (especially big guys going against someone fast). The Capcom characters look like kind of ghetto, Sagat especially (I never knew he was hunch backed).
This one is something I will have to pass and wait for better fighters like KOF 2003 to come out.

I think Street Fighter Alpha 3, although dated, had perfectly decent visuals. Sort of an anime twist instead of SF2's awkward semi-realistic sprites that SNK managed to perfect. That's why the new Street Fighter character graphics impress me less than the others.
Capcom never cared to update sprites unless it was for a totally new series (or subseries in the case of SFA). While SNK would update little by little throughout a single series (Fatal Fury 1 --> Garou, KOF94 --> KOF2002, AOF1 --> AOF3, etc.) To Capcom's credit, they did update very little through the SF2 series, but it seemed like they just wanted to justify yet another SF2 semi-sequel instead of geniunely wanting to better the look of the game.
Still, you've got character like Demitri from Darkstalkers who was pimping the same pixelated sprites for ages and now looks absolutely fantastic now. The menacing new art makes him look like a real vampire, while the old look is now like a bad K-Mart Halloween costume. It's a shame Morrigan and/or Lilith didn't make the cut, as they (specifically Morrigan) badly need a makeover. Just fire up a Morrigan vs. Whoever match in MVC2 and the sheer contrast is painful and, frankly, embarassing for Capcom.
I hope Capcom gets enough feedback or complaints to warrant a totally new Darkstalkers or Street Fighter, not a crossover game but a dedicated one. As of now, SNK is looking to wipe them off the face of the earth, while Capcom rehashes games and creates mediocre 3D homages to games that were flawless in 2D (such as Maximo versus Ghouls and Ghosts).

On the other hand, my own personal view is that CVSNK2 is still the best fighter I have ever played. I will not give up my PS2 copy of it any time soon...
