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.
If you are a hardcore fan of the series..you will be let down

Summary: in short. the game does not offer much. mvc2 had 56 characters and 3 has 36 characters. some of them are useless. like modok. garbage. i loved the series and air combo, but now its just button smashing time. counter attacks are retarded. you can just fire your proton canon for example and the opponent blocks, but trying to counter the attack isnt as swift as mvc2. it feels very slow. the sound is also a bit off. i liked mvc2 feedback system.
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.
Two great companies clash again. But is it for the best?

Excerpt: After over 10 years a brand new installment of Marvel vs Capcom is released! Although it may sound like I'm commending it, which I am it also does have a lot of problems. The game has very little when it comes to the story other than you are basically fighting against two major villains who have fused the worlds together in worlds together in order to create world domination later resulting in your team of fighters going against them and Galactus who is from Marvel who...
Pros: Great multiplayer, good range of characters (maybe not enough), fun in general
Cons: Not for the faint hearted, can be beaten easily, game is slightly broken
A fun but broken game with strange character choices!

Excerpt: Well here it is, the latest installment in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise! Guaranteed to get both comic book and video game fans alike to get their game on and say who is better! Storylinewise, there is none. You do fight some major villains of the series and get some cutscenes (comic book style) at the end of the game. The graphics are very beautiful and there truly is a comic book style feel to the game.
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.
