Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Overview
MVC3: The Next Generation of Fighting Games
Unless you've been living under a rock or not a video game fan for the last couple of months, the words of Marvel Versus Capcom 3 has been abuzz on the lips of gamers everywhere. The latest installment in the epic fighting game series by Capcom and the first to be released after a decade of waiting. Most fans after playing the game at several gaming conventions can agree that it was worth the wait.
Capturing the classic feel of its predecessor, Marvel Versus Capcom 2, while incorporating new gameplay elements has made this a game not only beautiful to look at, but also smooth to play. The design team has put in a lot of work making sure each character was balanced and accurate to his/her abilities from their title games or comic books, so Ryu fans can enjoy giving their opponent a Shoryuken to the chin while others will enjoy the zany antics of Deadpool whether he uses his katanas or guns to take down his opponent.
Unlike MVC2, this game has an actual story that players follow and each character has his/her own ending to the game, making worthwhile to try characters that veteran gamers aren't familiar with. The overall story is that Victor Von Doom has assembled the greatest villains of the Marvel Universe as well as conspiring with Albert Wesker from the Resident Evil Series and the villains of Capcom's Universe for some nefarious purpose. However these actions lead to an even greater evil being awakened, one of which has yet to be revealed to the world.
With new gameplay modes, returning favorites like Captain America and Wolverine, welcomed newcomers such as Dante from the Devil May Cry Series and Zero from the Megaman X Series, transitioning from 2D Sprites to 3D Models, and gameplay balancing; Capcom has pulled out all the stops to ensure that this title sets the new standard for fighting games everywhere. The only thing gamers are wishing for is they don't have to wait another decade for the next installment to be released.
