NextGN: Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Review

NextGN writes: "Being the huge fan of Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, that I am, I really had high expectations for the sequel. Especially now, considering all the hard-pressing titles that are flooding our stores. Developers really need to be at their best to even compete with what’s currently available, and what soon will be. I love Marvel, and I love Capcom — so, how could a sequel to what is, in my opinion, one of the greatest fighting games let me down?"

The story is too old to be commented.

I wasn't expecting such a low score, but after reading this review I am very surprised that other writers ignore these very trivial flaws. The game-play may be solid, but it seems like Capcom are taking a piss on their fans. It's 2011 -- if anything, games should be jam-packed with content, at least the basics, and that's what this game is lacking.

Baka-akaB2820d ago

that would be because in the end , what capcom got right is what's truly important . especially in an era where rest is easy to fix via patch and dlcs

Lol casual gamers. Only bitching about shit for the sake of it, lets make capcom waste their time creating a survival and time attack mode even though no one will play it. Oh and lets put items in so I can dress up spider-man as sub-zero. Hey while they are at it, how about they put a horrible 2.5D beat em up adventure game in there also. oh oh
and lets have a crappy marvel themed chess game and go-kart mini game too.

Jeez, its a fighting game, the only thing that matters is online play. The "content" of the game comes from becoming better and challenging yourself by playing an infinite amount of people. Why is this so hard to understand? The Only thing they dropped the ball on is spectator mode and some sort of replay system, other than that this is an excellent game.


I completely agree. You cant review a fighting game anyway as there is so much to be discovered and there is no way you can say you have seen and done it all within a few days of release.

guys you should see the argument I had with the douchebag reviewer at He PM'd me on here and said I was scared to comment on his review of Marvel...So I gave him a beatdown

^worst review ever


People dont get that fighting games are designed for two players first. Nobody complains about singular player in any other versus sport or activity but because this is a "game" it therefore should have a tonne of stuff to do.

Hell, the only reason why they originally let you play the CPU in the first place is so you have something to do whilst waiting for someone to put their money in the machine.

Baka-akaB2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

I wouldnt be so harsh , but yeah , last time i checked , everyone was even pissed the original sf4 unlock things through its various modes such as survival and time attack .

Why ? because only a few cared about those .

Stop putting single player expectations you guys usually dont have for a fps such as cod .

As long as capcom beef up the online with stuff like spectator and replay (already planned it seems) , it's gonna be ok

Im having a hard time getting into Online games ranked.

I play on the 360 so maybe its a 360 problem.

Although my brother plays on ps3 and says he is having the same problem. We live in different city but both use comcast so maybes it us if no one else is having the issue.

PrettyinPurple2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

pfft, online is fine. It's a 1v1 game anyway, and it's pretty solid imo.

MvC3 6.0/10 [Forgettable]; seriously? When you review fighting games this early in you need to explore the available options they have for the players. 38-something characters, over 50,000 different team combinations, each with different strategies?

Man whatever.

Baka-akaB2820d ago

I love the "in the game's defense there is no lag" part , as if it was a throw away , not the most important part for online fighting game , and usually the case with every fighting games .

BlackTar1872820d ago

I have had lag when playing people not in my region unfortunately i have problem getting into same region games.

Sillyace922820d ago

Review is exactly what I thought of the game.

HungryGoku2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

Worst online this gen Capcom played you guys thank god I rented. I swear to god not lieing fanboys. Blockbuster TY for helping me dodge that bullet lol.

Baka-akaB2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

you are full of crap or didnt touch stuff like tekken 6 .

I also notice you love stating you rented the game . Again renting a fighting game is probably in a top 10 of stupid things to do with a game .

Spin away hateboy ... notice the "or" . tekken 6 was unplayable online , and still isnt great after patches .

Along with other games with a far worse online than MVC3 as a documented fact.

I think the game is better off without you either way

Optical_Matrix2820d ago

Online needs a bit of fixing. Also want a Spectator feature and replay options. Apart from that the games an absolute blast. And easy 9/10 from me.
