Lost the appeal of MvC2

I may be a jaded reviewer... I used to love fighting games. I just don't see the point anymore. Maybe because I remember arcades to vividly. Console fighters aren't the same, even with online.

Anyway, its not an awful game. I'm sure fighting fans will love it. For me, it's to simplified. Three attack buttons and a dedicated launch attack button? Where's the skill and strategy there?

This doesn't feel like a MvC2 followup, it feels like a SF4 expansion game. MvC never felt like SF, so why the change?

Graphics are beautiful, character animations are nice. Gameplay options are limited, and endings suck. SF4 got full animated endings. Its is an upgrade from mvc2 endings, but still feels rushed.

Anyway, I was disappointed. However, playing as Taskmaster and Deadpool was fun while it lasted.

The novelty of pitting your favorite video characters against some of the Marvel heroes in an epic battle of supper powers wares of really fast when,

-lacking in playable heroes
-unbalanced heroes small vs large will favor the smaller hero.
-simple control scheme that promotes cheesing over skill
-really fast game play witch allows any button smashing combination to be considered a combo if the attack lands
-a small amount of attacks and specials to pull off.
- you have to pay for the addition of characters wt! capcom !

i was a huge fan of marvel vs capcom 2 and taking into consideration that certain things are supposed to improve over time marvel vs capcom 3 is far from it. marvel vs capcom 3 is less than half the game 2 was.

The Good points of this game are, anyone can pick this game up learn the simple button scheme and have fun. the effects are enjoyable and the house music sound track gives the game a better feel than the last.

When I played Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, I never got bored of it. From the first hour of playing this game I knew I would never get bored. The game play is extraordinary. Has very smooth character designs and the characters themselves are cool. Competitive Multi-player. The combos that you can link together will leave you in your seat screaming WOAH! One of the greatest fighting games to hit the consoles. Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is a great rent and buy.
