The latest installment of Marvel vs. Capcom may be the best yet, as IGN gave the game an 8.5 out of 10.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 delivers a great amount of depth with the same frenetic fighting style and memorable characters. Although the previous titles had 56 playable characters, MvC 3 has 36, with 4 locked to begin the game, but offers many new twists that enhance the gaming experience.
The all new X-Factor allows characters to become stronger and faster for a brief amount of time, with each character being affected in a different way.
“If you’re eager to cast fireballs the size of your HDTV, this is the game for you. The basic elements of tagging in partners or summoning them for brief attacks is still here, as is the notion of building up a special meter to execute particularly devastating moves,” according to IGN. “Ultimately the alterations help mature the franchise, removing needless complexity – the game has enough depth as it is.”
