The control scheme is way too complicated for the average gamer to just pick up and play. Characters are too limited. And there is no mode to teach you how to play the game, it leaves you to just fend for yourself. Definitely disappointed.

I guess the first word that comes to my mind is confusion. In order to make more money, Capcom has simply added a few new characters and the word 'ultimate' to MVC3 and repackaged it all over again. I can't recall when a dev has done that in the past... This is the EXACT SAME game as MVC3, but with a FEW?? new characters to play with. They may have tweaked the moves and claimed to adjust the balance, but when it comes to online play it doesn’t make any difference. I would've liked to see Capcom offer this as DLC; it makes no sense to do this other than to improve their bottom line.
All new guys except Hawkeye were simply hot garbage in my opinion. Guys like Nemesis, Firebrand, Rocket Raccoon, and Phoenix Wright were a joke. Their abilities are useless and don’t stand a chance against the cheapest online fighters in the world. I feel bad for people who bought MVC3, not realizing the game would be ‘out of date’ months later.
The difficulty in arcade mode against the CPU is now diabolically impossible on high difficulty, and the 3 second character endings are all the same, and online fighting is too cheap to even explain, but I'll try anyways!
My biggest problem is the lack of balance in the commands of certain characters. If you try to jump into online play, you’ll likely throw the controller against the wall in less than 3 fights. There are only 2 types of players online: Those who have simply mastered the arcade fighting genre and will brutally massacre you in no time at all with unblockable combos and cheap tricks OR those who sit in the corner and do nothing but button mash ranged attacks over and over and over. They will keep jumping in the corner and do nothing but the same shooting move over and over again. It’s no fun at all. Even if that’s me doing the button mashing I wouldn’t possibly have any fun.
Basically think of this as DLC for Marvel vs Capcom 3 and nothing more, nothing more at all whatsoever. Capcom did nobody a favor h
