Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds – Reviewed (360, PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: Eleven years after its predecessor a lot of hype and demand has been building for the release of MVC3. Having finally arrived in store shelves, does Capcom fulfil these expectations? And can it match or even surpass its cousin in Super Street Fighter 4?
Excerpt: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is one of the most anticipated games of early 2011 in certain circles. It is a sequel to very popular and highly successful Marvel vs. Capcom 2 from a decade ago (editor: with hardcore gamers).
Excerpt: It looks like the video game industry was not good enough with Marvel vs Capcom 3. So now we have Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on the Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. I used the Xbox 360 version for this review. There are forty-eight characters, a refined fighting system, eight new stages, and new modes.
Excerpt: Capcom made the 3DS sing with Super Street Fighter IV by bringing everything that made the console version great onto the small screen with few sacrifices, and they’ve done an even better job with UMvC3 on the Vita.
Excerpt: There are optional touch screen controls that are implemented perfectly. I knew they’d be optional, but I didn’t think they would be optional AND still allow you to use the regular controls at the same time.
Conclusion: universe: an updated version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom: Fate of Two Worlds Ultimate Marvel v. Capcom 3 on the Xbox 360. As popular as Capcom’s fighting games are, none in the Versus series combine with such a hugely popular non-Capcom universe more than Marvel Comics.
Summary: Those disappointed with
Marvel vs. Capcom 3
will be happy to hear that
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
fixes most of the issues gamers were complaining about. The game is more balanced and the new playable characters are a nice addition to the game.
Pros: 12 new characters, Spectator Mode, Colorful and fun game design
Cons: No way to upgrade your old copy of, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, - you’re paying for it all over again, suckers.
Summary: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a great fighter that was released at an awkward time. With the original Marvel vs. Capcom 3 less than a year old, many players are either still coming to grips with just how to perfect their game or are burned out on the hyperkinetic combat.
