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.

This is one of the best strategy guides I've ever seen. It's well organized and written by people that clearly know and love the game. It doesn't just list the moves and frame data, it gives in-depth strategies and commentary on each character and their playstyle. Outside of the character sections, there is a lot of helpful general-knowledge fighting game information for new players, along with definitions for common fighting game terminology. Everyone should own this.

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 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.

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.

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

This guide is made by the player for the player! Amazing work! tons of info for the beginner or advanced player. You want to learn how to play the game right? Its here. You want to learn that nifty fighting game lingo you read on SRK? Its here. You want combos for your character? You want the battle plan for your character? You want FRAME DATA? Its all here. Best guide I have ever purchased the Vanilla MVC3 guide was amazing and this has stepped it up ten fold! Don't hesitate, buy this guide its a necessity not a luxury! Beautiful pictures easy to understand. It won't make you Justin Wong or Combofiend but will help you start to see the game the way they do!
