Given the focus on appealing to a larger audience, MvC3 could’ve gone horribly wrong. Fortunately it still retains the same level of depth and integrity that the previous games went by. If anything it’s deceptively difficult. Anybody unfamiliar with fighting games should be warned that, MvC3 will seem enticing – and it’ll create no end of smiles when the shell’s finally cracked open – but it’ll also take a lot of patience, a lot of time and a lot of effort. Spend some time practising in mission mode and get over that hump, and Marvel vs Capcom 3 will provide months, if not years of entertainment.
