Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (PS3) - Review
21 February 2011
Excerpt: 2011 seems to be the year for ending the long hiatus. Duke Nukem Forever is finally dropping in May, Kid Icarus is seeing its first Western release in a decade, and Marvel vs. Capcom returns after eleven years without a new game. It seems that after such a long time, the Marvel vs. Capcom team has learned a few things about making a balanced fighting game while still keeping the chaos and fun at unrivaled highs.
Summary: Marvel vs. Capcom 2 answers the prayers of many 2D fighter fans everywhere with the addition of an online mode, but that is pretty much it for this bargain priced (1200 MS Points) fighter. The online mode itself is lackluster, and the lack of any truly good visual updates such as boosting the visuals to HD is a little disappointing. Still for the summer drought, and for those that have played Street Fighter IV from top to bottom should have a great time.
Pros: Good selection of characters, online mode, super flashy
Cons: Unsavory for newcomers, online mode, showing a bit of it's age.
Summary: Undoubtedly some people may consider " Marvel v Capcom 2 " to be on the expensive side for 1200ms points but it will certainly offer a lot of replay ability and prove to be very rewarding if the players give it the time and effort it deserves.
Conclusion: Ignore what it doesn't have and embrace what it does: excellent gameplay that anyone can enjoy, but a very deep game that can frustrate many. A fighting classic that is truly worthy of your hard-earned cash!
Excerpt: Marvel vs Capcom 2 has got to be one of the most popular fighting games ever released. Featuring a slew of popular characters from the both the Marvel and Capcom universe, a tightly designed and mostly balanced combat system and an enormous competitive scene that still rages on today, it’s really a surprise when a fighting fan hasn’t heard of the mammoth title.
Excerpt: Fighting games that mix characters from different universes are extremely popular right now, with Smash Brothers still going strong and the likes of Dissidia 012 on the horizon. Following the success of Tatsunoko vs Capcom and the PSN/Live re-release of Marvel VS. Capcom 2, a new contender takes the stage.
