This game had been released only NINE MONTHS after the original Marvel vs Capcom 3. In other words, consumers paid full price for a game that was to become both obsolete and completely redundant in under a year. It gets worse.
Consumers also paid full price for a partial game, too. Existing content already on the disc and therefore already in the game - including so-called 'extra' characters - was hidden, and could only be accessed in the guise of paying to 'download' them as fake DLC. This content can't be 'DownLoadable Content' if it isn't actually downloaded. Proof can be found in the fact that upon release, hackers were able to access and play the so-called 'DLC only' characters without actually having to download them. It still gets worse.
The release of this 'Ultimate' version was a result of the many, many complaints made about the original. It had a tiny character roster, especially when compared to Marvel vs Capcom 2. It had only minimal content, lacking even the basic on-line modes that were expected, including the bog-standard ability to spectate on-line player matches while waiting for your turn to fight. Gamers were instead literally treated to watching cards wobble about on the screen!
It also had horrific character balancing issues, and completely broken fighting mechanics, which re-defined the phrase 'all flash and no substance'. Some characters were vastly overpowered compared to others, resulting in their constant presence in on-line matches. Powerful 'Hyper Combos' for each character were generally overpowered and even easier to pull off than regular special moves. The 'X factor' power up ability to strengthen a character's attack and defence was *vastly* overpowered and commonly exploited in matches. In fact, within hours of the game's release, it was found that just about every character was capable of easy one-combo knockouts, resulting in matches essentially being won by the first player to land a hit. Hell, with the X factor ability, matches could also be easily won even if the opponent continued to block. At this point, it may not be necessary to also go into the many exploits and the game-crashing glitches found, too.
To sum up Marvel vs Capcom 3. Consumers paid top dollar for an incomplete game, and were expected to pay up extra money to access existing content, marketed as fake DLC. The actual content available was minimal, and well below expected standards. The game itself was marred by massive problems with character balancing issues and broken fighting mechanics. Upon finding this out for myself, I am not sure if I felt more angry, cheated, or disappointed.
And now for the cherry on top. Not only did I and others pay full retail price for this nonsense, it turned out to be a complete waste of money altogether given that the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 upgrade was released as a full retail title less than a year later. I don't care that it is being sold for less than the usual retail price. This is what should either have been released the first time, or provided as free DLC as way of an apology.
Shame on Capcom for this. And shame on the so-called 'professional' reviewers who ignored all of these problems to lavish praise and high scores on both titles. Little wonder gamers are increasingly becoming suspicious of the honesty and integrity of all those concerned.
