    With 12 new fighters and tons of extras along with several tweaks to existing fighters Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 is quite a value for $40!

    Capcom might be pushing their luck by releasing a Ultimate edition of a game that was already released early in the same year. However, it is this confidence that helps ease us into this timely update.

    If you skipped out on Marvel vs. Capcom 3 earlier this year or simply heard about the Ultimate version and opted to wait it out, you'll find a lot to love in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

    That's the story of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: This is actually the game that the original should've been. If you've not played MVC3 or traded it in and want another fix, this is absolutely the best route to go. If you bought the original, how much do you love MVC? If you want more, go get it – the newcomers are great fun.

    The visuals are great – as vibrant and colourful as you'd want from a game featuring comic characters – and overall it's tremendous fun to play. Perhaps not an essential upgrade if you already own Fate of Two Worlds, but nevertheless highly recommended.

    Gloriously insane and surprisingly good value, it doesn't pretend to be the deepest fighter around but in the short term at least this is one of the most entertaining.

It' has a great fighting system, strong presentation values, some nice extra modes, and a terrific online component. It's a bit lacking in modes when compared to something like Super Street Fighter IV, but it's still a terrific game all around. Yes the roster is smaller than it was in MvC2, but with that comes better balance. If you can't have fun in this game, you might just be dead inside. Expand

    I bought MVC3 on opening day and was very disappointed with it, mainly because of the online compared to super street fighter4. Well CapcomI bought MVC3 on opening day and was very disappointed with it, mainly because of the online compared to super street fighter4. Well Capcom has brought out UMVC3 and I must admit that this is a solid game all round. Online is allot funner to play because now you can actually spectate matches instead of just waiting around in the lobby for matches to be over. The 12 new characters that they added are extremely cool to play with especially Iron fist who plays like a super hero version of feilong. I have been waiting for a fighting game that could take me from SSF4 for a long time and it looks like Capcom has done that for me with UMVC3. The game controls are easy to learn but UMVC3 gets very difficult when you compete at a competitive level so just be aware of that, definitely a game that makes you spend alot of time in the lab but the results are worth it if you are into fighting games.

    "Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3" is the definitive version of the game. There's no doubt about that. It's just too bad Capcom released it as a"Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3" is the definitive version of the game. There's no doubt about that. It's just too bad Capcom released it as a stand alone title only 9 months after the original. Featuring 12 new fighters, rebalanced gameplay, new arenas and modes, it's what MVC 3 should've been from the very start. Unfortunately, the company did not give the option to purchase the new additions as DLC. Instead, they offered "Ultimate" at a reduced price of $40. It was a disservice to owners of the original game. Overall, this is more of an expansion than a huge improvement. I would rate it with an 8.2 out of 10. Expand

    Was my ultimate favorite game until a little kid beat me just by smashing on the buttons. Visuals, soundtrack, endings, everything is just incredible.
