4.0 out of 5 stars Fun fighting game 21 July 2011
By Nick D
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Have not had this game very long but immediately on starting it up you are impressed by the flashy visuals and over the top characters. It's a very appealing game visually and the music and sound effects are just as good. There is a simple control option for people who are new to the game, like me. Which makes pulling off special moves very easy with one button press. There is no real story as in Mortal Kombat, so the game can seem a bit bare bones. This game shines and was made to be played with other people. There is offline and online modes for multiplayer. Online I found myself losing to very good players which is to be expected so you might want to practice quite a lot before challenging people online.

Just a heads up, Capcom are releasing a new version of this game in Novemeber called Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, which includes 12 new characters and 8 new stages and a few other things and it's releasing at a lower price than this game did at launch, and this new version is only going to be available to buy on disk, you can't download the characters, so you might want to wait for that instead of buying this version. But this is good if you want to get in some practice before that game comes out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A True Fan Service 18 Feb 2011
By Adam D
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll cut to the chase - fans of the Marvel Vs. Capcom series are unlikely to be disappointed by this offering. The action is as over the top as it has ever been, the roster is varied and characters once again have their own individual theme songs and endings. Galactus also acts as an impressive final boss - seemingly daunting, challenging, yet satisfying all in equal measure.

When an early version of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 was shown for the first time last year, many fans were worried that the game wasn't looking as good as they'd hoped - at least graphically. It's safe to say these fears can be put to rest upon playing the final product. Both the characters themselves and the stages you fight in have been brought to life spectacularly - with vivid colours, slick animation and fantastic screen-filling special effects.

The problem is that in many ways the game does it's best to alienate newcomers. The training option is limited (to say the least) and provides no true introduction to the basic fighting mechanics. This seems a particular shame because it'd be great to have the series open up to a whole legion of new fans. I sincerly hope new players are not instantly put off through sheer bewilderment.

To make matters worse, it took a couple of fights before I realised that to tag your partners, you need to hold down the assist button instead of simply tapping it (a tap brings your partner in for an assist momentarily). It would have been nice if Capcom had actually explained this basic aspect of the game - at least in the manual.

There's another grating issue that reviews have already commented on - the issue of downloadable content.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hadouken! 29 May 2014
By Mark
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Ok, first of all I love Street Fighter and Marvel, so together it's got to be amazing right? Right! It is amazing. You get (have) to choose three characters to play with and you can change them whilst your fighting to preserve energy and health etc. It's full of amazing combos and the animation is excellent. The only PROBLEM with this game is that Ryu and Chun Li are the only characters that you get from Street Fighter. The rest from Capcom are useless. So, after about 2 weeks of playing I have now got bored with this and cannot be bothered with it unless friends come over to play and we take the mick and use the little Knight guy or the girl with the robot!

Great idea, shame about the lack of Street Fighter characters!!!! Real shame!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best fighters going 20 May 2014
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
This is the definitive tag fighter, with excellent characters, unique and awe inspiring ultra moves and a balanced and fresh approach to a somewhat basic genre.

The first thing that you'll notice upon getting into the character select screen that there was a lack of characters you can choose from, but the hidden characters will have to be unlocked after playing a few rounds of arcade mode.

The training mode is good for the beginner to take a crash course in basic combos / Air Combos (This game THRIVES on Air combos..Capcom have come a long way from Xmen COTA, back in the 90's)

I personally didn't like the art direction it was going for. I really loved the art style of the 1st two games (and ESPECIALLY the 2nd game, of which sadly Capcom have pulled from the digital Shelves of PSN, though if you hunt around for it, you might find it available online to play through an emulator or better YET get a 2nd hand Dreamcast system, which was arguably one of the best consoles Sega ever made)

The music and sound Effects are fantastic & DEADPOOL was the biggest surprise of all..I've NEVER been exposed to Deadpool before and I've heard so much about him, he's the most hilarious character put into a video game..Nolan Norths Voice just gives him that extra dimension with wacky personality & he WILL break the fourth wall with anyone that plays as him. (He sounds & LOOKS like he's talking to YOU, the player the whole time)

As I said before the soundtrack of this game is fantastic for a Beat 'em up (stick around for the first half of the end credit roll)

I've seen combos done by experts for the EVO fighting championships (They were playing the' Ultimate' version) and I think it will be awhile before i'm able to string together 100+ Combos yet.

And on the note of 'Ultimate' Why oh WHY does Capcom keep doing this to fans??
