12 January 2012
Excerpt: A long time ago, early in 2011, a fighting game was released that was the continuation of every comic book gamer’s dream come true. Marvel VS Capcom 3 featured 36 fighters from two of the most loved universes, with Marvel characters like Spider-man, Wolverine, The Hulk, Thor and Iron Man – what a...
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...
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 .
Excerpt: When Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 was originally announced, many of us here at Diehard GameFAN were super excited. It had been well over a decade since the original Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 was released and we were all big fans of it.
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: 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.
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.
Excerpt: It's difficult to discuss franchise mash-ups without so much as a reference towards the Marvel vs. Capcom series of fighting games. And rightly so; it's one of the most well-executed crossovers in the gaming world.
Excerpt: It's early days yet, but the opening screen of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a strong contender for Understatement of the Year. "This game contains sequences with rapidly flashing images," it reads, as if the visual hysteria were limited to one or two select occasions. It's not.
