New Characters Pile Into The Fight
2 January 2012
Excerpt: Why Capcom? Didn't you learn anything from Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Didn't you see what I said about the game in my half-year special of the worst games of the year? Apparently not, because you went out, acting like the previous game was a beta, just adding elements that should have been in the original game to begin with, like new characters and stages, and made it a full retail package.
Excerpt: “Hang on”, you say, in a confused daze, “didn’t this game come out already?” Well, it did see its original release in February, so you would be right. However, Capcom has added much more content to the previous release and has now re-released it as an ultimate package, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 . Between the new characters, new stages, new gameplay modes, and Heroes and Heralds, Capcom has certainly made this re-release worthwhile.
Excerpt: Capcom has struck again with its latest fighting entry, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. While basically serving as an update for February's super hero and game icon throwdown, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 manages to feel like an entirely new experience. With an updated engine, twelve additional brawlers and a few added game modes, this is a hard title to miss for its $40 price tag.
Excerpt: Capcom really put themselves in a nasty situation. After releasing the highly anticipated Marvel vs Capcom 3 earlier this spring, they announced this summer the release of an updated version of the game with twelve new characters, patching, and updates for the returning cast, all wrapped up in a $40 bundle.
Conclusion: Ultimately, Ultimate is still a monster hiding under an attractive coat of flashy combos and familiar characters. It may feel inviting at first, but sink a little deeper, and you discover a game in which victory and defeat hinge on a fine line. It's a high-risk, high-reward system that buries you in a brightly colored light show on the slightest misstep. Ultimate Marvel vs.
Pros: New characters feel distinct from the rest, Spectator mode for online play a welcomed addition, Retains superb style and animation from the original.
Cons: Lack of gameplay mode diversity, Replay support is still absent, Mission mode still lacks key training tools.
Summary: In true Capcom fashion, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 graces us with its presence not even a year after the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, causing many an eyebrow to raise. Does this sequel of a sequel live up to the hype?
Pros: All-star cast of characters, Simple, yet deep gameplay, Improved online features
Cons: Confusing Heads Up Display (HUD), No Mega Man X
Conclusion: Pile that on top of the great offline multiplayer experience, the depth of the character line-up, some superb music, great-looking comic book style presentation in gameplay and menus and plenty of self-referential and depreciative humour and there’s an awful lot to like here. Some of the mistakes Capcom have made are very disappointing, but even then there’s no denying that this is a great game.
