Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Review (TheSixthAxis)

TSA: Even if you only have a passing interest in the genre, this is a game that you shouldn’t miss out on. The intuitive gameplay mechanics provide limitless possibilities and give the player more power and personality than ever before. If you can think of it, it’s most likely possible. While there are some issues with the online multiplayer in terms of functionality and features, these are issues that can be remedied with a patch. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is not only a worthy successor to the legendary MvC2, it easily surpasses it in nearly every way.

good game but seriously destroyed by balance issues. the game needs a barrier like blazblue to stop chip damage because ryu's shinku hadoken from anywhere is cheap and combos from anything he does. on lowest damage setting he still kills dante with 2 combos :/

dark phoenix/Zero or wolverine powered up with X-factor means death to the whole team, and we all know about the spam characters.....bleh game is so good just needs balance!!!

oh and chunli's force field of kicks, u cant do anything about that unless u spam projectiles, so lame lol

i mean i luv playing the game but the balance is what makes this game long term or short term

Actually anybody with xfactor can be death to a whole team. She-hulk's heavy attack grab usually means death anyway as I can get a 12 hit combo off of it. Akuma can do some easy cross-up's and don't get me started on how he can infinite. Everybody is essentially a power house with xfactor it's a typical "deal all in" type of move.

P.S. X-23 can be worse than wolverine.

Balance is really weird in this game. Every character as the potential to destroy and they're even deadlier when placed in a solid team. Of course, it's all up to the player to utilize their character's abilities to max potential as well.

The whole point of x factor combos is to be able to kill at least one character . It even kills Sentinel for that reason .

It's the way to "balance" 1 survivor vs 3 . When you get caught by it , it's usually by your own carelessness and mistake , and you have the same tool .

Everyone is supposed to be godly and overpowered in this crossover and well everyone is . What matter is having a counter for everything , and so far there are actually counters .

Notice how less and less people are crying over sentinel lately ? Some actually played the game , and realized you can do a few counters to sent strategies , like push blocking sentinel ... properly using the various advance guard cancel and x factor cancels , or simply having on the team a character good against him etc etc ..
