The first moment I opened up this book, I know it will be more than just a guide. It is informative, teach you more than what you should know, and encourage you to do better than what they can offer. They writers of this guide did a great job in creating a very detailed and thorough guide for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

First, the introductions. I know most of us will skip the intro and go straight to the characters that we want to learn more. But believe me, take your time to read the introductions. They talked about the cultures in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, like how people started to play as Sentinel, how Phoenix gains popularity in the gaming community, brief but useful insight about some famous fighters and more. You'll learn some thing about the gaming culture, especially in fighting games community. It's too interesting for you to skip it.

Then come the system and gameplay. It talks about the modes that you can play (arcade, training, mission, ranked match etc). It also explains in depth about the system in the game like guarding, X-Factor, advanced guard, team aerial combo, team hyper combo, frames, crossover counter and more. If you are new, you should definitely read these first, as it will improve your knowledge about the gameplay a lot. Even if you are already good in MvC3, I suggest you read it too, because there might be some information that you never knew before. There's never a downside on knowing more.

The part that most people are looking for will probably be the individual character guides. The characters are divided into the new, old, and DLC, and in each grouping they are arranged in alphabetical order, with Marvel characters first then Capcom's side. I don't know why I explain this, as you can always check the index -_- but never mind!

The Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Guide from Brady Games is absolutely wonderful. This 600 page monster has so much great information, I would recommend it to any person, of any skill level, amateur to tournament level player, to improve their understanding of this game, and really take their fighting prowess to the next level. The character specific strategies, in particular, have really helped me grasp the intricacies of fighting with my favorite team (Ryu, Iron Man, Ghost Rider) and I have been winning many more games online since picking this guide up. Everyone who plays Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 needs to get this guide.

If you want to get good at this game this guide will get you there. Extremely detailed profiles of all of the character moves, combos and specials. The size of it is a little intimidating as a beginner but everything you need to become an expert is in there.

The holy bible of umvc3, thats it... over 550 pages of in depth character strategy and frame data, as well as optimal combos for each, including dlc characters... Get this guide before it becomes rare, like the game because no more digital copies are being sold on psn or xbox live

As with every fighting game, there will be patches and this will become obsolete. Along with that, technology with tinkering with game mechanics doesn't come full circle until a few years that the game has been played by millions for hours per individual so eventually this will become even more incomplete.

BUT I do love supporting a franchise and this is one way to do that. It covers the basics quite well and it is made by pro gamers so it's not just by people who make the game but by others who play it at the highest level (Cl0ckw0rk!!!). The pictures are great for visual help but keep in mind that a Youtube video will be better in the long run to teach mechanics and combos.

Physical guidebooks are a dying breed, let's be real. They are a novelty for a fan, so purchase and be happy.

P.S. This is a fat guide (not Skyrim fat) since it covers 50 or so characters in great depth. Quality is there guys :)

I didn't expect much from a fighting game strategy guide, but the authors of this book went all out to include absolutely every bit of minutiae they could possibly cram into this book. Granted, it doesn't include some of the newer tech discovered by hardcore players in more recent months, but if you're looking for a handy, aesthetically-pleasing repository of all information available on Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 at the time of its release, this is the book for you.

AND, thanks to the aforementioned aesthetics, this strategy guide makes a not unwelcome addition to your coffee table (even if your significant other -- like mine -- generally abhors stuff like this).

If you want to improve your gameplay for casuals or thinking about competitive gaming, this guide has your back, it has a lot of technology that is only seeing play right now, even with a game like this that changes constantly, the fundamentals will be the same.

Great buy for fans of the game and even comic book fans.
