Missing way to many features that are standard for a fighting game, and terrible Disc Locked Content.

Summary: Now the game itself is fun, but it has way to many flaws that could have been fixed with a little more effort. The game has three modes. Story Mode Online Mission "Story mode" has basically no story whatsoever, yet Capcom overhyped the story to death, and delivered a weak and empty "story" if you can even call it a story. Online doesn't even have spectator mode, what is the point on having an 8 person lobby, if you can't even see the other matches.
Summary: Having grown up with all the versus games in the arcades (and even before that when Marvel and Street Fighter were separate Capcom fighters), this game has a lot of pedigree to live up to and it doesn't quite make it. I know this review is especially early to write, but I do it now for those looking for a "commoners review" and who are trying to avoid the hysteria of this games release that's only getting the repeated "It's great!" reviews from typical gaming websites.
Summary: i was expecting old marvel vs. capcom characters with same fighting techniques. didnt get it! whew man what a flop. not to mention that there is no balance among characters, wolverine completely outperforms all other characters by far while others hardly even compare. hardly like any part of this game.
Summary: No balance at all in this game. about 8 characters are so much completely better then all the others, theres no point even trying to play a tournament with them. But, I guess if you are into the Marvel series of fighters, and love a huge roster, pick this one up. Practicing endless super combos can be amusing... not a bad game in all.
Looks and plays like Tatsunoko and nothing like the original two classics.

Summary: This was always gonna be a really hard game to review as up until a couple of years ago in my mind anyway capcom were the greatest at fighting games, indeed to this day i have all my old classics which i still play all the time, But after streetfighter 4 in my opinion at least they seem to have really lost their way as the last few big name games they have put out have been really disappointing and when this was announced a while back i was excited because the first two...
Excerpt: Marvel vs Capcom 2 améliore en tout point le premier épisode. Les graphismes sont toujours aussi hallucinants, les personnages sont nombreux et possedent chacun de nombreux coups. Mais un Versus de Capcom restera toujours ce qu'il est : bourrin. Le principe n'a en rien évolué ; il faut appuyer comme un dingue, sans réfléchir, pour déclencher les coups les plus dévastateurs possible.
