    There are issues to be ironed out, the Auto Combo being a huge one right out of the gate, but none of the issues I have with the game can’t be fixed with patches or updates in the future. The core of Marvel vs Capcom Infinite shines like the Infinity Stones it features, and there are Infinite possibilities of where the game can go from here. It’s Mahvel baby, and it’s back in a big way.

    Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite introduces some twists to the formula that will likely be divisive for the hardcore fans of the series. However, a compelling story mode and the balanced introduction of the Infinity Stones will satisfy new and old players alike.

    Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite offers one of best iterations of the series's gameplay, but its weak presentation and lacking roster prevent it from achieving excellence.

    Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is sterile on the surface, but a functional as hell fighter. I'm fine with that. Are you?

    It’s always nice to see Marvel and Capcom working together on a fighting game and Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is still a great fighting game with neat ideas. Infinity Stones are a breath of fresh air, and going back to a less chaotic 2v2 format makes it more playable at a lower level, but ultimately some of the silliness and wonder has been sucked out of its DNA. For the hardcore audience, it’ll still play wonderfully and I had fun, but casual players will find little to sing and dance about.

    I’m no expert at fighting games. I like them, but I’m terrible at them, and tend to judge them on how well they do when both players are blindfolded. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite passes that test well, making for a great party game. Most of my issues with the roster comes down to personal preference, but it’s safe to say you shouldn’t pick it up for the story mode alone.

    For the first time since Capcom dared to show Cyclops and Ryu shaking hands in X-Men vs. Street Fighter, the Marvel vs. Capcom series offers up a fight that nobody really needs to see.

The game play is fresh and interesting. The graphics look tip top. Infinity stones are dynamic additions. Glad Capcom listened to the fans-significant improvements to Chun Li's face. She no longer looks like Chuckie's bride. This is the kind of game that you can just kick back and relax and play with your friends for hours. The game is appropriate for all levels from a causal player to a pro player. Expand

    The Marvel Vs Capcom series in my opinion has always been one of the funnest fighting game series out there with its flashy and responsive tagThe Marvel Vs Capcom series in my opinion has always been one of the funnest fighting game series out there with its flashy and responsive tag team combat and with this iteration that still stands true but sadly the game is let down by it's roster and lack of polish. Although the roster is not bad by any means it lacks Marvel's usual X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises as well as any Capcom characters that ooze that classic Capcom charm (such as Viewtiful Joe, Phoenix Wright, Amaterasu, Tron Bonne, etc.). On top of that the game doesn't really feature that many newcomers. What I can say though that the characters available are incredibly fun to play as and there will at least be two of your favourites to choose from especially if you are a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    The game itself feels a little undone, graphics are fine but nothing spectacular to today's standards (especially when comparing it to Injustice 2 which released a few months ago), what I think this game lacks compared to its predecessors is a decent art direction. Half of the stages present in this game feels rather bland and lifeless compared to previous entries in this series or just Capcom fighting games in general, most stages have been made with the Story mode in mind but some such as A.I.M.Brella, Knowmoon, New Metro City and Valkanda are pretty appealing. The UI also lacks any style and you will find yourself navigating through dull menus and keeping an eye on boring health bars in the midst of battle, it all just lacks that old Marvel Vs Capcom charm that we are used too. The music is pretty standard of remixes of classic character themes and the voice acting is pretty good for the most part.

    The game includes a Story mode which is a first for the MvC series, I found myself enjoying it once you get past the first 10-30 minutes after awkward and eye rolling character introductions and interactions are done, I just wouldn't take it too seriously. Moaning aside the game includes your standard affair or Arcade, Mission and Online modes which all work really well, online plays pretty smoothly considering the craziness happening on screen.

    As I put earlier the gameplay is just as great as past games in the series, although some changes have been made for this 2D fighter. Rather than teams of 3 on 3 which was introduced in Marvel Vs Capcom 2 the series has returned to its roots of 2 on 2 (that of Marvel Vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes), despite a missing character from the team the gameplay is still as frantic as ever with the inclusion of Infinity Stones, which all have game changing effects which adds another layer of depth into the game. You will be spending a lot of time trying to perfect the mix of tag team combat, timing and use of Infinity Stones.

    Despite its flaws which I am able to overlook for now and in hope that Capcom takes feedback from fans and critics aside there is a really deep, decent and incredibly fun fighting game at its core resulting in one of the most fun fighting games I've played this generation, and as gamers isn't that what gaming is really about? Hopefully it will be even better once new characters are released and improvements are made from Capcom.

I really wanted to like this game. The small roster was disappointing, but I was willing to wait to play it to judge it at all. The graphics look worse than any of the previous iterations including the sprites of the first and second game, but again I was willing to play the final product and judge it then. After playing it, I was incredibly let down. Each character looks dreadful and the voice acting is unprofessional. Instead of being able to lean on the strength of the now robust MCU, each character seems like an insult to their movie AND comic book equivalent. The story mode is an embarrassment. As an out of box experience, it did not feel like i was playing a real Capcom release. It looks like a mobile game, even in the horrid User Interfaces and health bars and the look of a lot of the moves.

    That being said, there is a game here. Underneath the wreckage of this dumpster fire there is actually a really fun game. The training mode is fun and I like a lot of the new characters and new mechanics of the game which seem like they're going to be fairly deep and exciting.

    So, maybe my score should be lower but I'm holding out hope that maybe I will like the wreckage underneath as I start to play it a bit more and see it played competitively. Still, with Street Fighter V suffering from a lot of the same problems, i can't help but worry for the future of Fighting Games for Capcom. Lots of the hardcore fans seem to actually like this title too, so maybe there's a bright future for this ugly game.

It has all the right elements. The movesets and controls are varied enough for skilled players while accessible enough for newcomers. The problem is that this game was made to be TOO accessible for newcomers. The Auto Combo system has absolutely ruined this game. Plus the easy Hyper Combos are just way too EASY to pull off. There are so many times when I accidentally wasted a Hyper Combo while caught in the midst of battle, only to have my opponent telegraph and block the entire move. You would also think Capcom might realize that it just isn't fun to be corner-raped for an entire match. Once people know how to string together the most basic combos there's just no way to block or avoid it most of the time and newbies can simply Auto Combo their way to victory. Not very much fun and there's little to no skill involved. The Infinity Stones are a nice touch but it gets annoying when people kill off your 1st character then use their Soul Stone before you can use yours to take an easy win. Again, not fun at all, just an aggravating design choice.

    Removing the X-Men and Fantastic Four didn't help this game's chances but we can blame Marvel for this since those properties were sold to Fox. Some of the character choices on Capcom's side were very questionable as well. Haggar? Nemesis? Firebrand? A lot of recognizable characters are on the roster but these obscure choices weren't even necessary. Overall the game feels like a giant advertisement for all of the upcoming Marvel movies. The 2 vs 2 combat is fine because it makes matches much quicker but the Auto Combos and easy Hypers should've been completely scrapped.

The roster is weak and less than week in, casual matches are already near pro levels. So beginners to this game will not enjoy it. Story mode is just like the beta, its weak. From the small roster only five to six players are good to play online. When characters move on screen they feel "sticky" and stiff. This changes when combos get started. Heavy characters are trash, go with speed or "Keep Away" characters like Dante, Jedah, Zero, Spider-Man, etc. If you are concerned with X-Men characters they're in the game, only disguised as MCU characters. (Example: Gamora is Deadpool/Wolverine). If you have a chance to change the Capcom Asian characters (like Ryu) to native language I recommend it. The English voices are bad dubs. If you go against players online that has "Easy Combo" activated, expect "one button" supers. Not a good time. Presentation is great when the action is going, but idle characters and hair animations are bad. The DLC packs are not worth the wait also, besides the brokenness of the new characters will introduce to the already weak roster (like Killer Instinct did on season 2 on Xbox one). If you played older MVC titles its very lack luster. (Example: Venom is not a new character to the series if he came out on MVC2). Last but not least, if you still want this game do combo research on YOUTUBE before going online. Youtubers like Maximilian Dood (who are paid to promote the game for EVO) has broken down the game and exploited the combos and flaws (destroying any learning curves). No joke, Zero/Strider has an infinite combo without using stones. Oh, almost forgot about the infinity stones, its Capcom's lazy attempt to have an assist characters in the game without having another character on the screen. That's what I call lazy programming from Capcom. Like i said before, rent the game on GameFly or Redbox first to determine if you like it. But for 60 dollars, i will be waiting for DBZ fighters. Or buy MVC3, Injustice 2, or the new Tekken instead. (Fun fact: I bought the PS4 for MVCI. Well, that sucked). If you stayed for the end of the review, I commend you and hopefully this review helped.

    bad: This game is a very low effort fighter. A cheap cash grab for the MCU.
