Review: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (Sony Playstation Vita)
23 March 2012
Summary: : Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for the Vita is an excellent port of an excellent game, and if you’re looking for a portable fighting experience on the Vita it’s a fine one… but being the third time the game has been released in twelve months, it’s also hard to recommend based on that. The plot and gameplay modes from the console releases are here and as fine as ever, and the game does include some Vita specific options that are cute and fun to play with.
Conclusion: If the idea of pitting two incredibly strong universes of characters together in an ultimate battle doesn’t excite you then the promise of fast paced action gameplay and stunning visuals should draw you in. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is perfectly represented on the Vita and having a portable fighter is always good to have because it is something you can easily drop in and drop out of.
Excerpt: With almost the same graphics as its big brother console counterparts and same sturdy gameplay, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has made the leap to portable gaming. More specifically the PS Vita as THQ successfully launches the franchise on this brand new console. At its core, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is still a faux 2D fighter that brings together two popular franchises, that of Marvel Comics and the colourful characters of the Capcom gaming universe.
Excerpt: Though Capcom was on call with Street Fighter for the launch of the 3DS, this time it’s all about Marvel as Sony’s latest handheld disembarks on store shelves. Of all the terms accumulating on Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s ever expanding list of descriptors, ‘portable’ is the one sure to give many fighting game fans pause. Does this miniaturized version of last year’s celebrated slugfest deliver on the hype?
