UMVC3 doesn't really feel... ultimate.
There are several new characters from both the Marvel and Capcom universes, some of which are extremely obscure (Rocket Raccoon, for instance). They're entertaining to fool around with, but other than a few standout moves from Frank West and Nova, there's nothing to write home about.
When I read about Capcom's balancing of this game from the original MVC3, I thought they meant that it was no longer possible to get steamrolled online from one combo. I was wrong. If you don't know what you're doing, you might as well not even play online. If you're okay with a short single-player mode with the same basic arcade-y ending as the first (Galactus is out to destroy the world. Stop him. There's your story.), then this is for you.
