When it comes to games MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 3 is one of the best video games I have played in a while. The play is simply amazing. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is an flashy and fun and has significant character development. With some new and old characters MvC3 is truly an impressive gaming experience. The game modes aren’t so impressive but it has a cool arcade mode, an online mode. Up to eight players around the country can team up on a lobby to gather some of the best fighters the player will meet online. Players will then be able choose whether to seek a match on either ranked or unranked.
You can swap out characters during mid-air combos and adjusting the basic control scheme, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 also introduces the X-Factor mechanic, which boosts the speed and strength of characters.
