A Wild Ride 0

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a flashy game jam-packed with style. On the surface, virtually anyone who understands the basic concepts of fighting games can delve in and create a team consisting of Iron Man, Chris Redfield, and that wolf from Okami, to fight against a dedicated X-Men team. With a more inviting control scheme, rookies in this genre can pull off screen-filling moves that will convince any bystander they know what you're doing. Aside from mere button mashing, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is an inc...

Marvelous, but overwhelming 0

Marvel VS Capcom fans have been waiting for this game for 10 years, and will be immediately familiar with all of its systems and feel right at home. But what about the newcomers such as myself?  The last time I touched a fighting game was a year (Maybe two?) back at original SFIV, and my god being used to Street Fighter pace did NOT help. If you are completely new to this series or don't know what the fighting system is like, you'll have to go into the Training mode and basically just get a feel...

We Waited 10 Years, But Does It Live Up to the Legacy? 0

     Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds has lot to live up to. The second game was just one of these special games that spawned a legacy and a community for ten years. All the internet memes, the brokenness of only a handful of the roster was playable because they were so good compared to the rest, and the hype is arguably something that cannot be repeated for another game. After the success of the downloadable release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it was inevitable that this third installment wi...

A Decade of Hype 0

With its bright flashing colors, screen filling super moves, overwhelmingly loud sounds and infamous gigantic roster of characters, it's easy to see why Marvel vs. Capcom 2 remained a popular "money match" game for over a decade; the arcade cabinet might as well have been a giant fighting game slot machine. For some people, Capcom's decision to tone some of this insanity down a notch sounded like heresy. Ten less characters? A simpler control scheme? Are the people at Capcom complete, to quote G...

And why a purple Sentinel, anyways? 0

 Marvel vs. Capcom 2 strikes me as an emotionally polarizing game in the sense that its fans seemingly loved it and its makers seemingly despised working on it. You’d have to loathe the action-packed, explosion-fueled anime violence-fest fighting game you were developing to have included such grating lounge jazz music and the carnival motif stage. That game rather haphazardly threw just about every other set of character sprites from all of the Versus games with no regard to resolution qua...

Your names zero, hope you don’t fight like one 0

  I should probably start this with a little background on myself as regards fighting games, I would call myself a fan of fighting games but defiantly a player in the casual bracket of players and my only experience with versus games is a few matches of the MVC2 demo on xbla. I was drawn to MVC3 due to its roster as I am a big fan of marvel and Capcom and the game didn’t look quite as ridiculously crazy hard to play as MVC2. I have two brothers and a few friends who in the past I have played fi...

More then just a fan 0

With Marvel Vs Capcom 2 has been in my opinion on of the most played fighting games for crazy combos and hey watching Ryu and Wolverine fight is just awesome but on the competitive side it seemed like only a few characters got the spot light because of the infamous tier system. Marvel vs Capcom 3 has come out and there are some blaring things wrong with it. 1 mission mode, usually it's easy to do the first 2-3 but after that I was spending a lot of time trying to figure out what they wanted me t...

Insane 0

Marvel vs Capcom 3 is just crazy. It's an easy game to get into and it's not very complex like Marvel vs Capcom 2 was. There's returning characters and some new characters from both the Marvel and Capcom side. Returning characters are Ryu and Chun-Li. It can't be a Capcom versus game without those two but also Akuma, Morrigan and Felicia, Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Storm, Sentinel, Doctor Doom and my personal favorite, Wolverine. New characters involve Dante, Viewtful Joe, Amaterasu, Deadpool a...

Chew on this Galactus! 0

In high school and even later in college, my friends and I back in Jersey would head over to the mall arcade maybe once a week and feed a ton of quarters into our favorite machines. A couple guys would settle into the chair of a racer like Initial-D , but I would always head over to the Marvel vs Capcom 2 cabinet. This went on until I graduated college and the arcade, like many others in Jersey, closed down.  Fortunately for me, shortly after that, Capcom would give us Marvel vs Capcom junkie...

The Best of its Genre 0

Being relatively new to the fighting game genre this game caught my attention quickly, both with its artistic style and attempt to attract the mainstream gamers. Few fighting games nowadays play towards the average gamer, instead opting for the experienced fighting veterans. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 attempts to appease both crowds. To set the stage for this review let me get this out of the way, this is my first marvel vs. Capcom game, and my only other fighting game experience is through the early S...

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Review 0

Marvel vs. Capcom is one of those cross over fighting franchises that make certain gamers salivate. You will have your choice of 3 characters to go up against another team of 3 characters. If you can master the moves, as well as master when to bring a different character in, you could find yourself a champion. Now as with most fighting games, there's not a whole lot to the story portion of the game. Yes, Galactus is trying to consume your world, and you're going to need to defeat all the fighter...

Hardcore Catering 0

It's nice to see attention still going towards hardcore gaming in an era of increasingly bloated cash-in casual titles. Although I consider myself a gamer I've never faired well when it came to fighting games. But the over-the-top east meets west spectacle of the MvC series has managed to work its way into my heart when it probably shouldn't have.    Thankfully the combat has been "dumbed down" for guys like me that are on the fence about fighting games. With less buttons to worry about memorizi...

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Thumbs 0

If you are anything like me, the ten months of following the news and announcements surrounding Marvel vs Capcom 3 were painful and anxiety inducing. Now it finally hits store shelves; no more Youtube previews and guides for a game you couldn't even touch.  I managed to snag a copy of Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and so far it's taking me for an epilepsy-bound ride.  Let's get one thing straight, this is the third installment in a long going and famous crossover series with Marvel Comi...

Take You For A Ride 0

Marvel vs Capcom 3 is exactly what you thought you'd get from a Vs game. The characters are colorful, the action is frantic, and the game is deep. Beyond anything else though Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is fun. The characters available are plentiful, They threw in a lot of fan favorites like Deadpool, and Ryu, and Spiderman, while also bringing  some really obscure characters like M.O.D.O.K and Dormammu. If you remember how complicated MVC2 was, rest assured MVC3 is a lot easier to get into. The control...

Taken for a Ride... again. 0

The new heroes are here to kick butt and take names, and after a decade of wondering if this game would ever come into being, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is finally here. If you’ve never played the series before, let me just inform you this is not your typical fighting game. This is more of an action fighting game, in the sense that the first few matches are going to be chaotic looking. There’s characters popping in and out of the screen. There’s combos popping up all over the screen. Before you ...

A Geeky Spectacle of Sight and Sound! 0

When I first laid eyes on Street Fighter IV, Capcom's big push to resurrect the skill-based and strategic two-dimensional fighting franchise, I was enthralled.  It was as simple to play as Street Fighter had ever been in the past eight years or so, but it kept the best aspects of the Street Fighter 2 iterations and the Alpha series - yes, there was still more than one bar you needed to read, as there were ultra moves, but  the whole thing just felt more like an improvement on the original SF2, o...

Marvelous Edition to the Fighter Genre 0

I would like to start this out by letting everyone know that I am in no way, shape, or form a Fighter game enthusiast. I have always been terrible at Tekken, Super Street Fighter, and Dead or Alive; So I never truly got into the genre. I can easily say that with Marvel vs. Capcom 3, that has changed.  The iconic characters that are provided in this game are timeless. You have everyone from X-men that you adore with the added story characters from much of Capcom's biggest hits. While I fare on th...

The greatest match up is back! 0

Although the number of fighters has taken a hit since the last game, once you start to play it won't matter.It's easy for beginners to jump into and enjoy. There are a lot of cool characters from both Marvel and Capcom.Lots of good online fighters out there to challenge you if you get bored beating friends and roommates.Great art, fun fights, and the ability to use english or japanese voices. It's fun for comic fans, fighting fans,and gamers in general. The only down sides are the smaller roster...

IT'S MAHVEL 3 BAYBEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 0

It's been 11 years since the second “Marvel vs. Capcom” entry premiered in the arcades followed by the Sega Dreamcast release shortly after. Even when fighting games were less prominent (yet very loyal) in comparison to many other genres during the mark of the millennium through most of the decade and licensing issues with developer Capcom and Marvel Comics, “Marvel vs. Capcom 2” was able to stand for a long time. It's frantic nature and effective strategies constructed by many top players throu...

A Beginner's Review 0

Me and fighting games have had a weird relationship. The fighting game genre is something that I love watching at a semi-professional level but when it comes to playing I am terrible at. This is coming from the man who sold and bought Street Fighter 4 3 times in 2 years.  So of course, when MvC 3 was announced, I immediately got excited despite the fact that I have yet to win a match in MvC 2 (I can't bring myself to understand that game). So, like some of you I hope, I came into this game compl...

Outstanding Fighting Game 0

 The first two MvC titles were enjoyable but insanely fast-paced. In many ways, it became incredibly frustrating. It was too many characters, too much random action, and too much speed.The third game, however, seems to really fix up the problems. MvC3 is a still-really-quick fighting game, but one that a less-than-gifted fighting game player such as myself can figure out enough to work, but that the most skilled players can really hit the depth of the game in total.The character count isn...

Hardcore for Hardcore sake. 0

Well, i have played this game on day one of launch. I being essentially a newbie to the franchise (except for a rental of the game 10 years ago) i jumped in on Marvel vs Capcom 3. Immediately opting in for the online. I won my first game due to pure button matching and remembering to quarter circle at all times. But every game after that was a loss, or failed to connect. The game looks great and had taken me by surprise with a few simple things.   Presentation. The game looks amazing. The cel s...

Fast paced to a fault. 0

I've spent a lot of time with fighting games, and although I've never been above average at them, I rarely have trouble learning the ropes. Marvel Vs Capcom 3 kicked my ass, and it still does from time to time. While there is certainly tons of fun fast paced fighting to be had, actually getting any of that fun is a challenge. Sure, there's a training mode to practice in, and mission mode supposedly teaches you some of the finer points of each character, but unless you have a basic idea of how th...

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: One Hell of a Ride 0

Owing its creation to the success of the PS2 game, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, this sequel to the highly popular franchise was thrown out into a brand new world, one that had certain expectations surrounding its release. So did it live up to these expectations?  Well yes, and no. While MVC3 is indeed a fun game, it lacks quite a lot that its older model had. The game itself is a lot of hectic, face-melting fun, but it doesn’t really hold up to the standards of fighting games nowadays, and it really s...

MvC3:FoTW-OMGWTF;ROTFLMAO 0

With the success of Street fighter IV not all too long ago, Capcom single-handedly revitalized a dead genre. In fact by the time Marvel Vs Capcom 2 came out, the fighting game market was oversaturated and specialized to the point where most video game fans just lost interest in fighting games all together. Yet there was something about MvC2 that stood out from all the rest. That particular brand of over-the-top crazy action combined with a giant cast of both obscure and recognizable characters m...

For those of you who aren’t aware of the versus franchise it has been almost 10 going on 11 years since MvC2 graced our consoles(not including it’s brief appearance on marketplaces). It’s not only one of the most anticipated games of this decade with regards to fighters but also a brilliant time to get back in t the genre in general.Within the past couple of year the dwindling fighting game community has fluxed greatly with the return of what some might say the best 2D fighter ever(Street Fighte...

Mvc 3 is following the legacy left by its hugely popular predecessor, not an easy act to follow.

What I have played a lot of is Super Street Fighter 4, which I find an expertly crafted and entertaining game.

Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Review. 0

 This is my first review in 2 years, so hope you like it....Street Fighter IV is the Beethoven's Fifth of fighting games. All weighty drama, considered changes and measured movements, it's an experience that heaves and builds to a studied climax. There are fireworks and flames, sure, but they are yoked to tradition, and for all the screen-filling Ultra finishes the game maintains a Ryu-like distinguished grace. Marvel vs. Capcom 3, by contrast, is the Flight of the Bumblebee. Fast-moving ...

Worse Fighting Game Ever 0

Dear Creators, if you are going to make a fighting game, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST, make a block button, i understand that blocking is on the game, but is doesn't seem like it when hulk can continuously "smash" you into an air combo, and Dante has more moves than every character on the game combined, The worse part is when im already kick/punched on the ground, they somehow kick me (WHILE IM STILL HOLDING BLOCK) back up into the air into another combo, its ridiculous, makes you not want to p...
