Adam Dolge of PSU.com writes, "Some games are all flash and no meat. For Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, the flash is nearly blinding, but the meat is so tender it’s practically falling off the bone. It’s a trusted concept that worked wonders in its predecessor, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and the refined gameplay and new characters are enough to spark the interest of even the most modest fighter fans. A monstrous mash-up of two hugely popular brands — Marvel comics and Capcom video games — the game offers heart-pounding, adrenaline pumping gameplay with an easy-to-learn, challenging to master style. This is sit-on-the-couch-for-two-weeks -and-forget-all-responsibilitie s addiction at its finest. Initially this is a fantastic offering, but the lack of game modes, both offline and online, may make those modest fighter fans detach themselves from the couch after a few weeks."
