Weak

MVC3 is not MVC2

This is a review for MVC3 for people who actually played MVC2.

This is a review for fighting game fan's.

Lets start on the Pro's
-Visuals are great
-New characters to play with ex. Zero, Phoenix, Wesker (from Resident Evil)
-If you are not good at fighting games this game will make you feel good about yourself.
-End Boss is cool, but cheap.

Cons

-Every move is the same for all characters which is a con for people who actually like a diverse move list.
- Limited moves since there are only two combinations either quarter circle forward or back and a attack button.
-Super moves are cheap since they take up the whole screen and sometimes the camera singles on the character who uses it. This leaves the opponent open for an attack.
-The end boss, is very cheap you will die a lot.
- Attack buttons have been streamlined into 3 buttons L, M, H attack and special which launches the opponent into the air.
- Endings are not worth it because they are only a single slide describing nothing because there is no story.
-Roster has been reduced from MVC2 which will probably be sold to the consumer at 5 dollars.

This review is for the hardcore MVC and fighting game fan, if you are new to fighting games or just want to fight Marvel characters vs Capcom characters then this games for you. If you are not you will probably be disappointed, don't slam me if you don't like my opinion since that is what it is.

Marvel vs Capcom 3..I waited this long for this??

First off, let me say that I absolutely loved MCV2!! This one, not so much. Let me explain why...
First, the pros...
Easy to play...even if not an advent fighter for fighting games.
Combos are really simple to pull off.
The new characters are interesting.
Visual effects are cool!
Now for the cons...
Lousy voice over.
Same moves for almost every character it seems.
The last boss is cheap!!
The endings for each character are drab and lame!
Playability is so simple, it is boring.
Not enough characters
After all this time, I waited for them to finally make a stunning sequel with the capabilities of the PS3 and all I see is some slightly polished PS2 graphics and an even less thrilling combat system. I am a huge fan of both Capcom and Marvel characters, but this game seriously lacked the umph that should have been thrown into what could've been a masterpiece at hand. I am glad that I rented it instead of forking over $64 at Gamestop to buy it. This game should have had more invested technology involved into it instead of rushing an unpolished product just to make sales. Come on Capcom and Marvel...you need to step it up. The PS3 has alot more capabilities than you allowed it to utilize. Hope this helps. I know that this is just my opinion, so you can take it or try the game out for yourself...either way, I hope you like it better than I did.

I would have been happier with a Marvel Vs Capcom 2 HD remix similar to how streetfighter 2 HD remix was done. I would have had my 56 characters and the better 2d animation and better voicework than what was delivered.

The wolverine voice sounds horrible. Why could they not have reused the voices from MVC2? Wolverine doesn't even sound like the one from the cartoon series anymore.

They had 10 years to work on this. They could have put every single character from part 2 in here and then some.

Instead they are gonna stretch it out with DLC every month and charge people an extra 50 dollars by the time its over with just to get the amount of characters already provided in MVC2.

They wont get another dime from me. Im going back to playing the marvel vs capcom 2 15 dollar downloadable game from PS3 network.

Much better value.
