    While this incarnation of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 doesn’t add any major content, it does result in the definitive version of one of the best fighting games of the modern-era. Despite time passing, it remains an outstanding game and an absolute must-buy for those who love the series and want to enjoy it on modern-day hardware.

    Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 nailed it in 2011 with great gameplay and all of it still stays relevant and fun five years removed. I wish more fighting games took heavy notes from this title and started to craft their own experience after it because this is how you make a fighting game.

    Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 on PlayStation 4 is the very game you either love or hate upscaled to 1080p and 60 frames per second.

    The PS4 version of Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is a great news for the fighting game community. Marvel’s community is still alive, and now every player can get his complete copy of the game for a good price.

    Honestly, all you need to know to determine whether the PS4 version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is for you, is that it's still Marvel vs Capcom 3. The strengths and flaws are well documented, and nothing has really changed from the HD re-release. If you're eager to get back into the fray and take Doom, Wesker and Zero for a ride, then you're going to enjoy this port. If you were hoping for any major changes to the gameplay, then you won't find them here. Those new to the game might want to be warned that they're jumping into a deep pool. If you're looking to get a feel for the franchise before the upcoming Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, there's no better place to start than UMvC3.

    Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is a funny and spectacular fighting game: a huge mix of explosions, superheroes and terrifying villains, more sparkling than ever in this PS4 version.

    There's no denying that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a fighting game with a lot of content, charismatic characters, and tons of special moves and skills. The main problem here is that it's basically a sloppy porting of the original PS Vita version, sealed and delivered as quickly as possible, to benefit from the recent announcement of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite.

    I played this before on Ps3, and I can assure that this version is much better, smoother graphics and locked 60fps if you love fighting games,I played this before on Ps3, and I can assure that this version is much better, smoother graphics and locked 60fps if you love fighting games, and if you consider how much it costs to own the less performing version, this is a must have.

    Easily describing this game as a huge mess. In that meaning of having a broken fighting system with cheap character moves that ruins the game.Easily describing this game as a huge mess. In that meaning of having a broken fighting system with cheap character moves that ruins the game. Some characters projectile moves are a nuisance to get through like wesker,vergil and deadpool. You'll never find a decent player online GOOD LUCK with that, spamming same moves over and over again. I really thought this game was going to be awesome back in 2011 but being Capcom I was dead wrong. Now this garbage is on PS4 I just gotta save people from wasting $40 on this, Expand
