the guys a massive waste of a character slot. Could have put in a fan favourite in but they opted for the cheapest player in the last game... idiots

He was overpowered in MvC2 too.

That was because he was a unbalanced character from X-Men: Children of the Atom. They should have balanced he MvC3 so I really think its the case of a good player for now. Capcom pretty much had to balance people as the new engine made them remake everyone and the fact that only 6 people could own everyone else in MvC2.

One thing to note also is that the damage is increase in every single promo video. In the final game no one will hit that hit unless you increase it.

If I remember correctly, the actual Sentinels were meant to be formidable soldiers (or Magneto's minions?). In the comics a single Sentinel could be sent out to capture a mutant; they were kinda like the Dementors (Harry Potter) of Marvel. Any mutant who saw a Sentinel knew their azz was grass, but elite mutants could usually defeat/escape them. In the comics Sentinels were bad news, especially since there was an army of them. So did they dumb the character down the 1st time, or do it a better justice this time around?

Then again Juggernaut and the Hulk should produce 2 to 3 hit kills given their power on the grid, Magneto should be pretty much untouchable... so it is a game.

Besides, almost every fighting game I've played has at least one "cheese" character, so we could argue that it fits nostalgia-wise.

Have you guys not ever played the Sentinal in previous X-Men: Next Dimension fighting game????? He was powerful but not in the least bit unbeatable. Why is this news? Not like the character has never been used in the fighting game before.

They even mention games in the past that used the Sentinal... did they not play those games??? Sentinal was not over powered in the least bit. Now Psylock though...! She could over power me any day!
