    Default Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

    OneLargePrawn brings you the latest game review to date.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is not a game to be reviewed lightly: it is probably one of the most anticipated fighting games of the year (Ed – right up there with Mortal Kombat 9!), and at the top in terms of genre. When Marvel vs. Capcom debuted on the Playstation and Dreamcast in 1999/2000, it revolutionised the fighter genre with its flashy combos, fast pace, and fan-favourite characters. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 took this model and advanced it: 56 playable characters, 3 vs. 3 match-ups, hyper combos the size of your screen, and the unique feature of making me hear Ringo Starr scream “I got blisters on me fingers!” in the background.

    Marvel vs. Capcom 3—amidst much hype—needed to not only match the expectations of the die-hard fans, but also accommodate fans new to the series and genre. It did this perfectly and in style.

    You can easily pick up a controller, jump into Arcade mode, and mash some buttons together to pull of some awesome hyper-combos with little practice. This is not the extent of the depth of this fighting game, however. MvC3 will go as far as you can, all the way to the 3-teamed hyper combo finish line.

    MvC3 boasts a unique line up of characters from both worlds. Though it is quite a drastic drop from MvC2’s database of 56 playable characters, the 36 available on MvC3 (2 extra on DLC) will keep you entertained for days trying to master each character. The drop in playable characters is because, in MvC2, the sprites (character artwork) were simply dragged and dropped into the game from previous titles. MvC3 is far from that: each fighter was painstakingly modelled and animated as cel-shaded three-dimensional characters. If they can make the character of M.O.D.O.K. press different keys on his pad every time he executes an attack, then in my books, they did perfectly well with the roster. On an awesome note, I am sure a new lineup of characters will become available through DLC in the future.


    There has been some controversy regarding the actual roster. Old fan favourites have been excluded while newer, unpopular characters have emerged. For example, Mega-Man and Venom are yet to show up after countless community uproars, while characters such as X-23, M.O.D.O.K., and Spencer (from Bionic Commando), who are relatively unknown, made the list. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because if there were no new characters, a commotion would have been made about that instead. Also, my main fighters included X-23, who I think is way more effective than Wolverine; I enjoy her style and would rate her higher than most popular characters. Change is good.
