Critic Reviews for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (HD Edition)
In one major way, UMvC3 beats out the current fighting game king Street Fighter V: accessibility to newcomers. Solo players can play successive matches in Arcade Mode, or tackle the slightly more complex Heroes vs Heralds mode, using ability-enhancing cards for some added variety.
Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is an excellent fighting game with an amazing pool of characters and finely-tuned gameplay. Its original release in 2011 is a critical and commercial darling still enjoyed by fans and pros around the world, but there isn’t enough new content or technical upgrades in this edition to justify a purchase for anyone that isn’t already a devoted fan.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 remains a superb fighter, and one that is at the peak of its power in terms of performance. Beyond that there’s nothing much for the pre-existing audience, but anyone curious about the series heading into next year’s Marvel vs Capcom Infinite may well be tempted to start here.
