    Like it or not, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is the penultimate version of the game available. The gameplay has been refined, the roster is bigger and even more diverse than before, and everything else has been tightened and streamlined for online play. If you are a fan of the series, this is the version that you must own.

    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.

    This is an incremental update with a lot of fresh paint.

    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.

    With this extended cast of highly viable characters, the only thing holding you back from picking a group of characters you enjoy is your imagination. While this hastily released upgrade definitely has some room for improvement, there is absolutely enough new content to warrant the purchase.

    If you skipped MvC3 back in February (perhaps because you weren't in a rush and knew this version would come), then for $40, you're getting a very solid fighter with a huge cast and lots of attention to detail.

    Although it's a good fighting game the learning curve is steep and there are not enough news in Ultimate to make it worth your money.

It's also the only fighting game I've ever played where it's really easy to pull off huge combos, I can pull off combos of around 40-100 hits, which is hugely fun and impressive. The achievements on this game are challenging and fun to recieve, and the game features Marvel and Capcom favourites such as Zero, Spiderman, Rocket raccoon and many many more. Overall this game is very fun and has cartoony, crisp visuals. Buy this game if you want to be impressed by it's epicness! Expand

I find myself in the latter category- I had both MvC3 and UMvC3 on preorder. This game does add a good roster to the MvC3 group. They are advertising that the game is more balanced, and it definitely feels that way. Overall, this game is very fun. If you don't own MvC4, this is a steal at $40. If you do, then I'd probably only recommend this game if you are really a hardcore player- there is a lot of new stuff, but it may not be worth $40 more dollars for someone who already has MvC3.

    Im a bit of a Streetfighter fan (20 years ) . I own MVC 2 but didnt buy MVC 3 because I was still getting and still am getting a lot of playIm a bit of a Streetfighter fan (20 years ) . I own MVC 2 but didnt buy MVC 3 because I was still getting and still am getting a lot of play out of SSF4 AE . I really dig this game its even got a simple mode for non fighters . I played for an hour today with my 6 year old nephew and we had a lot of fun. The simple mode means any one can pick up and play and win. I understand peoples problem with Capcom releasing this so soon but the RRP is a bargain compared to some of the other recently released titles . Expand

(The last part assumes the player knows the backstories as well) Also, there HAS to be something said for playing s Galactus!

    Bad: If you had MVC3, you'r buying almost the same game again. The AI can get really "Cheap". The money grab for DLC costumes (when they are already in the game they just want your $20 to unlock them). Some of these characters can be retired and have new ones bought in. I'm looking at you Morrigan.

    Summary: If you like the "versus" games (and a extra $40 in case you have MVC3) you can't go wrong here. The game does need some tweaks and re working, but it's a graphically fun button masher with just enough skill needed to play and enjoy for months.
