    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.

    Capcom has done a remarkable job in presenting these beloved classics in their original state while adding just enough extra content like CRT Mode, The Vault and the slew of filters that allow you to recreate the game to look exactly like the last time you played it during the '90s.

    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!

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. Full Review »

On Jan 1 2015, this game will no longer be available for download, which is sad as the original MvC, while not as good as its sequels, was a very good game to play back in the day and it holds its own fairly well here. The port is good as it includes two games, the original Marvel Superheroes and MvC 1. MvC 1 is the star of the show here as it sets the stage nicely for MvC 2, one of the best fighting games of all time. This is a good way to see this fabulous series' roots and for people to get a better understand of where these types of fighting games came from. While we will probably be forever waiting for things like Marvel v. Street Fighter because of licensing issues, this will be your last hope to experience a time where 2D fighting games were king. But you better hurry before it's taken away forever Full Review »
