Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins (Xbox 360) Review
17 October 2012
Summary: is an odd game to consider. While Marvel Vs. Capcom 1 is still a classic, Marvel Super Heroes has less going for it. You can have fun with both games, but MvsC 1 is the clear winner, between both games. The inexplicable omissions of the other “Vs.” games confuses me, but still, for 15$, this is worth a look. It’s especially good if you have fond memories of playing it in the arcade.
Conclusion: Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is an acceptable package. While Iron Galaxy did a decent job updating these games in terms of visuals and online play, they couldn’t change the basic gameplay. One of the games included in this package is fun to play and the other is pretty poor. It’s not the worst HD remake you could buy, but there are just too many other ones to make this a must buy.
Excerpt: Capcom’s been offering bits of its old fighter catalog on XBLA since the service’s inception, with mixed results. Their latest, Origins , is a double-pack of two late-’90s titles: Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom . Most of the effort here went into the presentation. The options include multiple display settings to accurately replicate the look of older 2D games running on CRT monitors — even re-creating an over-the-shoulder spectator view.
Pros: + Excellent visual presentation., + Accurate reproduction of the coin-op originals, down to some of their craziest bugs.
Excerpt: The more things change, the more they stay the same. This statement more than any other reflects my time with Marvel vs Capcom Origins . As a kid, I frequented a local skating rink here in Florida that had Marvel Super Heroes. Now, I was barely tall enough to mash on the buttons, but I remember thinking how cool it was to use Spider Man and the like in battle in the same way I could in Street Fighter at home.
Summary: This is yet another Capcom collection that pits two similar fighting games together for one cheap price. The good news is that both Marvel vs. Capcom and Marvel Super Heroes are great games that hold up well. Unfortunately, the bad news is that you're going to get stomped online. With its creative use of filtering and goals to complete, Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is a must-buy for anybody with an interest in fighting games!
Marvel vs. Capcom Origins Review: Hitting the arcade
28 September 2012
Excerpt: If you spent plenty of hours at the arcades, chances are you might have spent a few quarters playing Marvel Vs. Capcom and Marvel Super Heroes. Aside from the Street Fighter titles, these two games were Capcom’s most popular titles in the 90s and have been now rereleased with added online functionality and unlockables. Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins is a seamless port of both games and brings back all of the nostalgia of victories, and even defeats.
Excerpt: If you grew up in the years of arcades, chances are you spent a few quarters on a Marvel Vs “something” game. Whether it was one of the many spin-offs or a numbered entry in the series, MVC has always been a haven for fighters who enjoy frantic action alongside a roster packed to the brim with characters. Now we get two of those games – Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel Vs. Capcom – bundled together, and the result makes me glad these games haven’t been lost to Father Time.
Conclusion: Ho scaricato Marvel VS Capcom Origins su PlayStation 3 grazie ad un codice fornito dal distributore italiano. Ho giocato sia in single player che in due, forte dei ricordi accumulati in sala giochi, su Sega Saturn e su Dreamcast. Ho anche provato il supporto online in svariate partite, notando un buon funzionamento.
