WARNING: Do Not Buy Until You Read This
, July 23, 2011
This review is from: Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Capcom has scheduled to release on 15 Nov 2011 a new disc-only version called: ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 (UMVC3 as follows), which will have:
- 12 New Characters
- 8 new stages
- Improvement in online versus such as spectator mode
The new version will be completely REBALANCED such as X-factor being nerfed. There will also be new moves for characters. Therefore you may need to learn from scratch again for your favorite characters.
The exact and complete changes are not fully announced at the moment. But the retail price is already set at US$39.99. You will get more value for your money if you can wait for November release.
And most importantly...THERE WILL NOT BE A DOWNLOADABLE VERSION FOR UMVC3! You cannot enjoy an improved version without buying ANOTHER MVC3 on disc.
In accordance with Capcom usual tradition, this inferior version will be left obsolete with no more updates. Just like street fighter 4 being abandoned when the super version comes out. In fact, the developers have expressed that a downloadable version is not feasible to incorporate so many changes to the core. A new disc release is the only to go.
With all these being said, you may want to rent this game for the time being and see if the game is worth your money. You can refer to other detailed reviews for the game itself. And remember when the UMVC3 comes out, there could be yet another upgraded version in the future (similar to arcade edition for super street fighter IV).
P.S. I have never written a review on Amazon before. But the disgusted act by Capcom to abuse fans' loyalty is irritating, and this forces me push a review now.
P.P.S. This inferior version may be preferred if you want to take advantage of the unbalanced aspect of the game.
