Summary: I really have very little good to say about this game accept that it's an altogether effective distraction when there's nothing else to do. It can, in fact, be downright addictive, due to a desire to improve one's game. The graphics are pretty nice, as are the music and sound effects; unfortunately, this is all I can say about the game's appeal. There are several drawbacks to this game.
Summary: This is a great game, however Capcom decided to release a special version within months of this release with more characters which is crap Ghost Rider should have been in the original release or as DLC paying another $60 for the same game with a few more characters is bad business.
Summary: This game is fun to play with friends or other players online for a short period of time, but it gets old very fast and is repetitive. I've ended up playing it many times when entertaining, but I rarely play the game when I'm alone.
Summary: I'm going to get this out of the way first: Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is an excellent game. The character roster is expanded, the fighting engine is fine tuned to achieve a better balance, and online play is enhanced significantly from the previous incarnation. If you have friends at your palce often (or even if you don't, since you can play online), Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a great game to occupy yourself with.
Summary: Marvel VS. Capcom 3 is a great game, but for once, can Capcom NOT pull a fast one on their customers? I'm tired of buying a new Capcom fighting game when it comes out, and then watching as an UPGRADED version comes out no more than 4 months later and for a discounted price! Why should I fork over 60 bucks for Street Fighter 4 if SUPER street fighter 4 comes out in 3 months and cost me 40??? Same with Marvel vs Capcom.
Summary: Bought this game to add to my fighting game collection. I like the details of each stage and the use of missions for specific characters. Didn't like the graphic detail of each character. They could have done better in detailing the characters more. Also didn't like the use of only three hit buttons. That means a little kid could press one button and beat the game (Or you). I'll prefer Marvel vs Capcom 2 over this game.
Buy this game for fun. To take it seriously would be a waste of time.

Summary: Coming from someone who is/was heavily invested in competitive fighting games, MvC3 is a bit silly. The combos are fun and technical at times but the gameplay isn't worth mastering because of how unbalanced the entire roster is. Literally they decided to balance the game by making every character overpowered. It's...silly. X-Factor puts a damper on the fun as well.
