Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

After a decade of waiting, iconic Marvel and Capcom characters join forces again in a re-envisioned team fighting game for a new generation. Fill the shoes of legendary characters from the most beloved franchises in entertainment as you battle in a living comic book brought to life in a VS. fighting game for the first time by Capcom's MT Framework. Get set for the ultimate faceoff when Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

  • Nice cast of characters
  • Stunning visual art
  • Great for competitive play
  • Story is outdated
  • Multiplayer is very basic
  • Defending is pointless
The long awaited…sorry let me emphasis LONG awaited Marvel vs. Capcom game is out and about and the buzz is extremely high. There is plenty to love, a huge roster of memorable characters, the visuals, the intensity of the combat, and so on. While there are a few unknowns on the roster, it is rather beefy for a fighting game considering the depth of each character. These characters look even pretty on the beautiful stage design that flows seamlessly with every match. While the multiplayer is rather ancient it has a strong following of competitive followers, which means there is always room to improve your skills.

Marvel vs. Capcom is not without its faults however, many of which can be easily overlooked. The only major issue is the lame story mode that is almost as old as the Sega Dreamcast. Mission Mode is also a bit confusing and is missing some important items to help improve new players. The combat can also be a bit chaotic for its own good constant leaving you in a sense of disarray. Also the lack of content such as real 
alternate costumes, and the staleness of the modes, truly this is for die hard fighting game fans.

This game had the potential to be a train wreck, simply because they tried to appeal to a mass audience of gamers. When you think about it in that mind frame this game did amazing, but the lack of variety is noticeable. Those new to fighter game may want to steer clear, because even with a beginner mode available, to truly harness this games potential takes serious dedication and patience.
