All your heroes (and villains) in a single game! Pick your team and prepare to pull off some crazy moves! Check out the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 game review.

After more than a decade since Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Capcom has finally produced a sequel. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 continues the tradition of easy to learn gameplay and insane, off-the-hook combos and special attacks.

The Next Generation

There are 36 characters to choose from in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which is 20 less than in the previous game. Four characters are locked at the start as well. However, no two characters are alike, even if they seem that way. Each one plays different and the whole game is well balanced. Since you have to make a three person team, mixing and matching your favorite characters is a lot of fun.

Easy to Learn, Hard to Master

There are four main attack buttons in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: light, medium, heavy, and special. There is also a button for assist that you can use to call on your partners to add to your combo or to switch with your main fighter. The new button lay out makes the game a lot easier to learn and play.

However, every team has three characters that you will need to learn. There are also tricks, like learning how to juggle your opponent into the air and using the new X Factor mechanic to cancel hyper combos. These things add a lot of depth to the game and makes it very interesting to play, but hard to master.

Not in the Mode to Fight

Unlike the Wii game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, there aren't that many interesting modes. There is training mode and simple mode to help you learn the game better, online modes that are wonderfully lag free, and missiong mode and arcade mode to enjoy by yourself. Missing are things like Survival mode, Spectator mode, and Bonus games.

If you love fighting games, or are interested in trying one out, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is an excellent choice. It is easy to learn and offers a lot to keep you going. However, aside from the fights, there is little much else in the game.
