I enjoyed the single player campaign for the most part, even though I whinged all the way through it. However, the lacking roster, annoying sound, unimpressive graphics and visual aesthetic, crappy boss fight design, auto combo problem, and power of Infinity Stone spamming mean I doubt I'll ever choose to bust this out to play with my mates when I have them over for a game night. Most of the Capcom characters left me cold (except Dante, sigh, you handsome rogue, you) and even the Marvel characters have some weird choices. All of the style and humorous panache of MVC3 are absent, and in general this was a solid 'meh' of a game.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is more complete than Street Fighter V, and its accessible bouts fare favourably – even though they're likely to divide long-time franchise fans. But this package lacks the polish that you'd expect from such a high-profile title, and even accounting for its forgettable story, it still winds up feeling light.

MvC: I has a lot going for it, but part of where it struggles to continually impress is in its presentation. From the boring menus to the good, but not great, character animations, it's a little underwhelming in this regard, but still fun and I have not experienced any framerate issues. These gripes aside, I'm having a lot of fun with the game and it feels like a more accessible entry than others in the series.

It ultimately doesn't matter if you're upset with the roster, because at the end of the day Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a great way to spend a night with friends. The combat feels smooth, the depth is there for dedicated players, and it's a much more feature-complete offering when compared to the launch version of Street Fighter V. There's a ton here to like, and those who dismiss it will only be missing out on one of Capcom's finest fighting games.

Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite is one of the best fighters of the year on a pure gameplay standpoint, the Story Mode may be utter guff and the visuals are incredibly mediocre but when it comes down to it, the core combat and online component are so addictive that you can sink hours into the characters and stones and still be finding new combos and set-ups.

With this new episode, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite retains its core elements while drastically modifying certain gameplay features in order to seduce as many newcomers as possible. While it might lose some of its core identity, the series gains however in a boost of accessibility, but I wish more work was done on the visual side of the game, especially when it comes to its roster which can be considered a little weak in comparison to previous entries in the franchise.

For the moment, I'm confident in saying that Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite plays well, which is good, because everything that surrounds that base game is a hot mess. It deserves a lot of the initial terrible buzz it received because unless you have your hands on it, Infinite just looks like refried hell. The Vs. series has never exactly been known for its high production values, but for a major fighting game release in 2017, this borders on embarrassing. It's a fun game that's often difficult to look at, and more so than any balance patches or DLC, it could use a fresh coat of paint.

Will Marvel vs Capcom Infinite be the bad student who will be laughed at for hours? No. Yes, developers have simplified things to make it more accessible than before, but at least they have never lied about their intentions. It is undeniable that it is easier to play, especially by the presence of "Super" almost automated, but this episode has still things to offer if you want to dig a little more. Indeed, The Stones of Infinity bring the game to another level, offering a more strategic side. Unfortunately, the graphics are a bit disapointing, especially with the competition which can be tough at this level. A good game to enjoy your evenings with your friends, failing to convince the most demanding players.

The game's shortcomings in regards to presentation and roster can largely be ignored. A bigger issue, and one that wouldn't be able to be fixed in a patch, would be if the game was just plain rubbish – and Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite is far from that. Much like Street Fighter V, when you're sat next to an opponent of similar skill, it's brilliant. That's what fighting games are all about.

For decades Capcom has been at the forefront of making compelling and high-quality 2D fighters. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that despite how polished the game feels, with its newly revamped audio tracks, revitalized roster and extemporaneous movement abilities, that I still long for the days where the X-Men filled the ranks of playable characters. While that is a hot button point of contention with the game and its fans, Marvel Versus Capcom: Infinite is by far and large the highest quality and, not to mention, most fun 2D fighting game to come out in years.

I'm going to be playing Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite quite a bit over the next few years, but that doesn't change the fact that its feature set is less impressive than every other AAA fighter on the market. Capcom has said that they will be treating MVCI like a service so in a few years we might see it flesh out into the fighter we all wanted to begin with. I'd still recommend a purchase for fighting game fans or fans of the VS. series in general, but just know you aren't getting much outside of the core gameplay.

Hopefully the novel I just wrote offers some perspective on where I came from going into Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. As a set of fighting game mechanics, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is hovering somewhere around brilliance, with a fascinating set of mechanics that respect the appeal of the series while dialing back on complexity for complexity's sake. At the same time, it feels like half the appeal of this series, the bright, colorful visuals, and high-energy, sometimes experimental soundtrack have all gone out the window in favor of a more generic, brand-friendly Marvel house style. Smooshed in-between is the game's story mode, which still managed to make me smile as a lifelong Capcom nerd. Despite the Marvel vs. Capcom brand power, the Capcom portion is absolutely the most important, but this time feels like it's fetching Marvel's coffee. But this isn't a kitschy mobile game, it's a Capcom fighter, and that Means Something – and I can't shake the feeling that the Marvel Machine doesn't care.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite reuses a lot of old content and doesn’t keep up with modern day fighting games. The mission mode is great, the story and arcade are not. The character designs are the ugliest I have ever seen in a fighting game. They look nothing like the original characters. It’s as if Capcom intentionally tried to make them as ugly as possible. It’s an okay fighting game for younger audiences, easy to learn due to simple move lists, but hard to master due to countless combo possibilities. If you’re a fan of the series it’s worth a look, otherwise stick with more modern fighting games.

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite succeeds as a superlative fighting game, it's just a pity that everything moulded around it doesn't quite reach those heights. The Story Mode is abysmal and the roster is uninspired. Despite that, it's still a blast to play.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite it's too much fun to simply advise people to ignore, it's a good fighting game surrounded by the unpolished presentation, but it does enough to be able to recommend it to fighting fans, but less so for the Marvel comic/film fanatics.

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite isn't the massive step back that was feared, but it's not exactly kept up with the frontrunners of the genre either. There's lots of fanservice in the daft melodrama of it's story, and the fighting itself is still flashy and as punchy as before. Just don't go in expecting an evolution of the series.

As somebody who's played each entry in the series, I couldn't help but feel a little slighted by Marvel. Despite this, I still really enjoyed the game. It's mechanically sound, and performs incredibly well online. At the time I sat down for this review, the game had almost completely overcome my objections. While it may not be my favorite fighter, it still has me reaching for the controller for more matches.

The only thing Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite has going for it is solid gameplay. The artstyle unfortunately suffers from cringe-worthy character design, and there isn't much replayability after players have finished the story and mastered every character via the mission mode.

Despite some creditable gameplay changes Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite doesn't really offer something that stands out from their competitors. Hardcore Fans will still find some of their fan favorites in the upcoming DLCs but in it's current form we can't recommend this game.

After Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite released, many critics blamed and some admired it. Newly added features and changing battle system to 2 vs 2 tag team fighting helped the game to present decent gameplay and amazed all of its followers. On the other hand, some reviewers criticized the game for its poor and unacceptable visuals. Yet, in my opinion, Marvel vs Capcom: infinite is still a valuable game carrying its unique charms.

Just like its predecessors, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has a very entertaining & addictive gameplay which is even more refined than before. But problems like poor presentation, lackluster roster and mediocre story mode & voice acting not only dragged down the experience, but also it's hard to ignore them and enjoy the game as it .should

The game offers a different experience than we used to have and experience that we can say with ease that it is lite and beautiful and help you relieve the nervous pressure that you will feel as a result of some other games or other life concerns, there was too much space for development and a large space to add other play stages and more uses For the stones of strength and combat arenas but as they say what could have been better than it would have been and this game will remain one of the games that you can you play with your children or your little brothers without fear of inappropriate content, of course, after you take into account it's a fighting game in the first place.

Ultimately, we'll have to see how Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite develops as far as expanding its character roster with its (forthcoming) DLC, and how the hardcore community takes to the game after spending more time with it and learning its deeper mechanics. While it may not quite match the blend of style and substance that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 provided in the last generation, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite still provides an enjoyable romp with Earth's (and video gaming's) mightiest heroes, warts and all.

Fighting game players who are into the genre for the sake of going toe-to-toe with other players will have far more to look forward to than those who are attracted to game's overall presentation or alternative game modes. So in the midst of quite a few missteps and mediocrity, you can't deny that at its very base Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite did at least offer some solid improvements to gameplay while still keeping the overall pace and feel of the franchise.

For some hardcore fans and for some casual players, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will do the job. The online and training modes are there for the former, whilst the arcade and accessible gameplay is there for the latter, but it doesn't make an effort to go all out and do all it can for both sets of players. Add to this the inexcusable locking out of characters as DLC, the weak overall roster, and rubbish presentation, and it is clear Capcom didn't want to put the effort into what could have been a great revival for the series. No doubt Infinite will still have appeal when it comes to the esports scene, but in the face of stiff competition, this one is likely to fall by the wayside before too long.

Overall I can’t help but feel disappointed in this game. It may never live up to the legend status of MvC3. Its definitely making waves and people are enjoying the game competitively but the ugly characters, shitty story, lack of any longevity and downright awful roster won’t keep my attention for long. I don’t even find joy in saying, “WHEN’S MAHVEL?” because now it’ll bring back memories of this game.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has perfectly competent core gameplay, with some welcome touches to make things more accessible to newcomers, but is let down by everything around that gameplay loop. Character designs, voice acting, writing, and just about everything about the story mode are all well below what one of the year's biggest fighting games should be offering, and that's enough to ruin even the simple joy of watching Thor pick a fight with Ryu.

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite tried so hard to be Marvel vs Capcom 2, one of the best entries into the franchise, but ends up falling short in terms of roster, character depth and gameplay. A lot of interference by Marvel's overlord: The Mouse; leading to a lot of fan favorites and X-Men characters being left out of the line up. The story, for what it is, isn't anything near the depth and interest that other games like Tekken 7 and Injustice 2 have done this year. Capcom was once the innovator and leading name in fighting games. While the Fighting Game Community might get some mileage out of the title, the casual player has already moved onto the game that does the Marvel vs Capcom formula right: Dragon Ball FighterZ
