UMVC3 is a good game for people a fan of the series, but for the casual fighter, this game doesn't have much to offer. Offline mode has Arcade, but no VS mode, which doesn't make sense bcos most fighting games have a VS mode. Challenge mode is just techinally a mode where you just try to do combos, which is fine for people who like that sort of thing, but I find it boring. Online is just full of try-hards and no-lifes, so don't waste your time. I like the Heroes and Heralds mode, but the thing is, you can't choose simple mode when choosing your characters, so you have to fight against characters of increasing difficulty without help and you have to try to get 100% of an area to conquer, but if you lose you lose some control of that area. This game is good for fans, but if you don't like this game series or fighting games, this game won't make you a fan. I reccomend Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend instead.
