Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 (PS3)
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 line-up! – and Capcom characters like Dante, Ryu and Viewtiful Joe.
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.
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
Summary: I've been anticipating Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 for almost ten years. While it was great for Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 (released in 2000) to get a semi-follow up in the form of Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom last year, it felt a little anti-climactic. Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom is an incredible game, but I think it's fair to say that Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is the title that fans have really been waiting for. Sadly, I've had reason to feel that Marvel Vs.
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.
