So Love to did it for me so I thought I would pay it forward and do it for someone else. This is A guest review By Irwin Rathore. Irwin is an amateur film director from Ontario/Canada he has earned a Degree in Digital Films and TV Productions from the Toronto Film School in 2005 and is currently working on a Star Fox Film project you may have heard of it cheak it out.

Here is Irwins Review For Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.

Marvel vs. Capcom, one of the most anticipated crossover fighting games ever made in fighting games history is back again for round three of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. As we'll look back a decade and a few years ago where it a...ll started with Marvel Super Heroes, X-men Children of the Atom, X-men vs. Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2, the franchise has brought forth of unique fighting strategies, game play, and heroic finisher moves that makes you want to throw your controller through your TV screen.

As I take you to the foundations of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, need I remind you that all of my outlook/opinions of the game may differ from your point of views. So first off…..fucking Capcom had to put “I’ll take you for a ride” theme back in the training mode when selecting your fighters, bloody annoying music on the character select screen of Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

When playing the game, I noticed the game play is rather very “easy” to modulate when performing combos/finishers. However, I don’t like the fact they added the “Simple” mode, because you can very easily defeat your opponents, and be very cheap when playing online multiplayer (and trust me, when I first played the online mode I lost 11 games, and I was like “FFUUUUUCCCKKK”, then I realized that the players where indeed using the “Simple” mode, so I started using it and got 7 wins so far, bloody hell.

The character line up in this next chapter is somewhat acceptable, but there’re characters that are very similar to other character moves and characters that really don’t blend in to the roster. There are seventeen characters from the previous games (including the two added characters that was included in the limited edition , but it’ll also be downloadable in March of 2011 for PS3 and 360); also including twenty-one new characters from both Marvel and Capcom universe.

First off, the characters from Devil May Cry, Trish and Dante, I say that Capcom should just have Dante and leave Trish out, it doesn't suite having two or more characters from the same game, where as Capcom can focus on bringing in single, notable characters from the different Capcom games instead of wasting and limiting the variety of character line-ups. Amaterasu from Okami is useless because he does elemental moves just like Strom, Thor and Dante, once again “limiting variety of character line-ups”. Arthur from Ghosts ‘n Goblins has a very, VERY limited of moves, he doesn’t do much at all; he is a favourable icon figure, but doesn’t flow well in a fighting game, sorry Arthur but you can stick with your 2d platform game my friend. When Mike Haggar from Final Fight was introduced into the roster I was like “about fucking time they put him in!”. Since Haggar has similar moves as Zangief, it’s good that they didn’t put Zangief in the game or we'll have the same concept characters. X-23 aka Laura Kinney who was part of the Weapon X experiment along with Wolverine and Deadpool from the X-men universe, she's pretty cool to use, she's like the hyper version of Wolverine, but same character concept and similarities. M.O.D.O.K aka George Tarleton from the Tales of Suspense comic book series, I’m sorry to say, but he has a BIG FUCKING HEAD, and is indeed the MOST SHITIEST FIGHTER I ever used, what drugs were you on Capcom when you came up with the idea on having M.O.D.O.K in the roster?.

Deadpool is amazing, he’s funny, his moves are great and it matches his characteristics, a good fighter they added in. She-Hulk aka Jennifer “Jen” Walters, once again same similarities as The Hulk, so sorry She-Hulk, but I rather have my HULK SMASH! Thor is okay, but he doesn’t have the challenge and essence when performing combinations and fishing moves. Crimson Viper from the Street Fighter IV series was a bad choice to put in, I rather prefer to have Ken or M. Bison over her, so PSYCHO CRUSHER her ass outta the roster!. Having Wesker aka Albert Wesker from Resident Evil is pretty good, but having Chris Redfield was kind of boring, he has similar moves as Jill Valentine. The rest of the rosters from both Capcom and Marvel are pretty good, no complaints, well, Dormammu from the Strange Tales comic book series, I don’t know what to say of him, so no comments.

Now, for Galactus aka Galen from the Fantastic Four saga was an interesting choice for a last boss. It starts off with the random typical fighter clones you fight first, similar to Marvel vs. Capcom when facing the last boss Onslaught (apparently Galactus only sends out Dormammu, Akuma and Wesker clones, none other fighters I’ve seen chosen as of yet. But Galactus is VERY EASY to defeat, even on VERY HARD mode. You can simply block his special moves which doesn’t inflict much damage on your life. When causing amount of extensive combination moves, you can cancel out his final special attack. Bottom line, he wasn’t challenging AT ALL!

Overall, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a fun fighting traditional crossover game of surprising attacks when playing Arcade mode or playing online, brilliant visuals artistry in comic fashionable style, and 3d/cell animated rendering of vibrant backgrounds and characters drawings. The bad fall is that the character line-ups is not that excitable due to some of the same character similarities in the above mentioned character roster descriptions, and for Galactus, good battle, but too predictable, and easy to defeat. As Spider-man would say “Mmmm, I don’t think I need my spider senses for that one!”
