Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is an example of a game made great by an enormous amount of love and attention to detail. It’s a worthy sequel to one of the most beloved fighting games of all time, brought to a current-gen level. Expect this one to be in heavy rotation among fans of fighting games for a long time coming.

This pugilistic prize mimics the polished, accessible reinvention of Street Fighter IV, forming another strong leg for the resurrected fighting genre to stand on.

Capcom has provided players with a package that rivals any other fighter on the market and surpasses the best of them in terms of presentation. Whether the prospective player is a Capcom devotee or a Marvel maniac there is something for everyone. Hardcore players and casuals alike will find a team of character that suits them and the amount of unlockables really expands the amount of re-playability. Fans have waited over ten years for this game and it delivers on every front.

These are just a tiny fraction of what’s possible for each character in Marvel vs Capcom 3, and even after over a month of playing, I still manage to find new techniques every single day.

Marvel Versus Capcom 3 is a fantastic game and in a market that is deprived of good fighting games- fighting genre fans should not have second thoughts about picking MvC 3 up. It does not revolutionize the fighting genre and employs a simple and a sweet strategy. With 33 of your favourite characters from the boot and more to come from future DLCs, this is a game that should be in your gaming library.

Admittedly the characters aren’t as balanced as they could be. The likes of M.O.D.O.K can easily perform a few cheap combos and win. It doesn’t really matter, though. You’re having too much fun to notice the flaws in the system. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 isn’t a game that needs to be technically perfect – it’s just fantastic fun.

Capcom 3 relishes in crazy moments and is all the better for it. In the end, it tries its damnedest to be a game that everyone could enjoy. You’d have to be saltier than the Dead Sea to not plug in, have fun, and enjoy the ride.

In terms of visual fidelity MvC 3 is a splendid tour de force of colour, funky sound effects drenched in a downpour of artistic licence. It’s certainly a game for fans of the series and the characters from both camps. In terms of an accessible game, Capcom has tried to accommodate newcomers to a degree, but really there’s not enough tutorial or explanation for those who would like to participate beyond button mashing.

You improve by practicing, watching the great players, and getting beaten – a lot – and if you’re not interested in doing that, then perhaps fighting games are simply not for you. I’m not sure that all of this really has to be this way, but no one yet has really bothered to show us otherwise.

Speaking of online, there is also a real issue with pairing up players at the moment. I’m not sure of the math involved, but I was stuck today with many highly ranked players (maybe two ranks above me) that simply killed me. As of right now when the game says it’s trying to find you a ‘ranked opponent’ don’t take that as it’s trying to find you an evenly ranked opponent. You could find someone who is equally as fighting challenged as you, or you could find someone who is going to use you as a punching bag. Either way, there absolutely has to be more consistency when it comes to being placed in a ranked match. Right now, it’s not cutting it or I’m just one of the worst players of all-time.

I know a few months back I wrote an article bemoaning the fact the art style is different in comparison to Marvel vs Capcom 2. I admit, I still wish there was a little less black and a bit more neon. But having now spent hours with it in action, I understand the very good reason for the change.

That said, it’s time to see growth in the category. Perhaps the lack of competition or the exclusive licenses stymie burgeoning features—whatever the reason, maybe there is, in fact, reason to the over-saturation and popularity of first-person shooters besides big guns and explosions.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a blast to play, despite losing some of the high-level intricacies found in its predecessor. It’s an exceptional synthesis of cohesion and chaos, and shows real improvement over its predecessor

The other issue is the likelihood that a mountain of downloadable content is about to be dropped upon the game. We already know there are two extra characters on their way (Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath) but there’s a suspicious lack of any other unlockables or extras beyond some character bios and gallery images.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a fantastic fighting game, full of flashy moves, fast action, and heaps of sincerity for the franchises and the genre as a whole. It’s approachable enough for newcomers and deep enough for hardcore fans but it doesn’t help the new guys out enough

No doubt, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will continue to sell for weeks on end regardless of what one person says, but there will likely be a handful of returns and rentals. Its approachable, eye-catching flair matches most of the hype and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, though veterans may feel slighted by the simplified control scheme. While the roster and the overall features are competent, there is deliberately plenty of room to grow with DLC and patches for not just the upcoming Shadow Mode, but more characters, modes, and features that are supposed to be available at launch. Given a few months, this ‘B’ will likely become a solid ‘B+’. Until then, the riotous excitement for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is smeared by a thin but visible layer of disappointment.
