This review is from: Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Even though it hasn't been that long since Capcom released Marvel VS Capcom 3, here we are already with Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3; an update that gives us a handful of new fighters, new modes, and a more balanced fighting engine to boot. Essentially what Super Street Fighter IV is to Street Fighter IV, UMvC3 throws in some additional fighters like Ghost Rider, Phoenix Wright, Frank West, Nemesis, Doctor Strange, Nova, and more besides (plus the two downloadable content characters, Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine). There's also the ability to play as Galactus in Arcade mode, some new special moves, backgrounds, and extras. The real star here besides the new fighter additions is that there have been some slight revamps to the fighting engine. Things just feel and play more balanced than they did the last time around (i.e., no more getting slaughtered everytime Phoenix turns into "Dark" Phoenix), even though the option between "Simple" and "Normal" controls still feels overly cheap. All in all, Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 is as much of a blast as it was the last time around, but whether or not its worth laying down the cash for is entirely up to you in the end.
