    Marvel vs Capcom Origins does a fine job of staying true to the originals, while the addition of dynamic challenges provide a new layer of addictiveness that helps to overshadow how much these games have aged in the past two decades.

    This is yet another Capcom collection that pits two similar fighting games together for one cheap price. The good news is that both Marvel vs. Capcom and Marvel Super Heroes are great games that hold up well. Unfortunately, the bad news is that you're going to get stomped online. With its creative use of filtering and goals to complete, Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is a must-buy for anybody with an interest in fighting games!

    I'd argue that Marvel Super Heroes is worth the price of admission here, but like I said, it's one of my childhood favorites and it's possible I'm biased. Marvel vs. Capcom, despite its sequels, isn't anywhere near as good and I could've done without its inclusion.

    Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins offers two great fighting experiences with mechanics that hold up even today. It might stand in the shadows of the sequels, but for those of you who want to see what it looked like the first time Gambit beat up Mega Man, you can't go wrong with this game.

    Fully recommendable for classic fighting games fans, even though those who are new to the genre might find it unbalanced and poor when it comes to the different modes. One way or another, Marvel vs. Origins is a great experience with a lot of care put in it, perfect for getting to know the origin of the series.

    As a compilation, it doesn't break any new ground; however, if you are a fan of classic fighting games and want to excuse to head back down memory lane then Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins is a purchase you likely won't regret.

    One may be annoyed by Capcom's recycling mastery, but it's still hard not to appreciate Marvel vs Capcom Origins, a nice compilation of two must-have titles of versus fighting. On top of those, the quality of this compilation's remastering, with nice menus, lighting fast loadings, and online play really make it interesting.

    A solid port of 2 great arcade classic games into a modern console. Nice graphics settings to remember the old arcade machines and new "challenges" to get yourself entertained again with a great and fun game that never gets old. The price is a bit high for being a port of a game with 15~ years old, but remember, it's Capcom. Expand
