As with the original MVC3, there is little to no plot in the game apart from knowing both universes of Marvel and Capcom collide and awaken Galactus, leaving it up to the heroes of both sides to take him down and save the earth. In Ultimate MVC3, the game does begin with a short prologue this time which uses the comic that came with the special edition of the game in USA. It's a nice touch even if there is hardly any story to be had. There is really no need for a story in this kind of game as the gameplay is why you'd want to buy this.
The gameplay is exactly like last time. You have a team of 3 characters and you fight your opposing teams to win. The fighting system remains the same but with some balances to already existing characters as well as giving some of them new moves. The X Factor ability which increased your strength and speed has been balanced out this time to be not so overpowered and you can now activate it in the air. The game remains highly accessible to newcomers and hardcore fighting game fans alike with two different control styles. There's the Normal setup which has the many button combinations of past fighting games and the Simple mode for those who are new to fighting games with simple button presses to perform the flashy and powerful moves.Read more ›
Important note: If you've decided to get this game, then do so quickly! Sooner or later the disc copies that are circulating in the market will eventually go extinct (as in a similar manner with Marvel vs Capcom 2). Not to mention, the digital version of this game (along with all it's DLC content) has been removed permanently from PlayStation Network & XBOX live since December 19th 2013. So you won't be able to get any DLCs for this game!
For all the lack of bells and whistles, underneath it all is a seriously well made game. As someone who is more on the hardcore side of fighting gaming, I do not even dare to mention the amount of hours spent in training mode, trying out extended combos and team combinations to then take online and test myself against others. Whilst there are certain characters and comeback mechanics which in my opinion cater to the lazy and sloppy, you sort of have to just take it or leave it. When this game clicks in your head it is one of the most wonderfully stimulating fighting games in recent memory but if your not on the ball be prepared to be SERIOUSLY frustrated.
Although I think Capcom did a good job of creating a game that appeals to all skill levels, If you are a casual gamer just wanting to play this for fun online, you will loose, and loose very badly. A lot of the time you will be annihilated and not even understand why. The difference between skilled players and beginner has never been so apparent. If you decide to take the plunge on this game be ready to put some work in or you will be relegated to playing the frankly sparse single player content.
The Argument of this simply being a DLC is very wishy washy.Read more ›
