Before you read this review know this is coming from someone with little history playing fighting games. I've just started to pick up this genre of games and LOVE it. I come from mostly a fps cod/halo background like most other gamers. I rented this game hoping to get more of a variety of characters to play as than SF IV, and thats exactly what I got, but not much else. this game plays fantastic and I love the over the top special moves, but the whole package was lacking in content. Lack of survival mode in particular was my biggest upset, but that doesn't hurt the game to the point where I wouldn't want to buy it. For right now its going to have to wait, but when this game drops 10/20 bucks, I'm not hesitating to get it. Great job overall.
Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is very fun. It builds off of the second one and ropes in newbies as well. I'm in the middle and felt the game was perfect.
Graphics : Very nice. Cel-shaded. Everthing pops. Comic book art style.
Game's life: You can beat the game in under an hour. But there are plenty of characters to see every ending. Throw in multi-player and special missions and you got a medium size game. There is even a customizable player profile.
Entertaiment: Very fun. Throw in friends and the night will fly by. Online can be competitive though. Be ready to strap on those puching gloves.
Gameplay: The controls are nice and responsive. Fluid movements through-out the whole fight. No sore thumbs here.
Negativites: Some moves were hard to pull off for the first time but practice makes perfect. I was also disappointed that the ending cutscenes aren't cutscenes but a comic book style with no movements. And lastly, I seemed to enjoy Marvel vs. Capcom 2's roster more than this one.

When I rented this game it is purely to use for my cosplaying. I was looking at the costumes of all the characters and trying to decided who to pick to go as at Comic Con. Then I started playing and really started to enjoy this. It had a lot of favorite characters in it, like Captain America and Thor. Then I saw that there was so many choices. Then I found my new favorite character She Hulk! She is green, tall, and wears a one piece spandex leotard. As a man I truly love this character and might go to Comic Con as She Hulk. I also was a little disappointed when some of the characters that I heard weren't going to be in the game. I heard there was going to be Yu gi oh, Staypuff Marshmallow man, Scooby Doo, and Papa Smurf in this game. The game really has a in your face fighting style. The moves are done so effortlessly. This is a really good game and should really check it out.
