Preview: Exclusive Hands-on with Marvel VS Capcom 3
Gouki.com got to play Marvel VS Capcom 3 all day. Check out our thoughts and these exclusive gameplay videos.
After playing Marverl VS Capcom 3 all day long yesterday. I sit here today only wanting to play more. MvC3 is one of the most spectacular looking video games I've seen in years. The colors and effects on screen are simply amazing. Capcom, Marvel have out done themselves. Marvel VS Capcom 3 is the sequel fans have wanted for over 10 years.
The character selection is great, there's a ton of classic characters you can use like Magneto and Captain America. The new characters are strange, but I'm really glad that both companies did some reaching. For example The Dog and the Bionic Commando Jimmy from Capcom and M.O.D.O.K. and TaskMaster from the depths of Marvels character catalog. Really cool stuff.
DLC characters in the future also have tons of potential, unless Shuma and Jill are the disc. If they are on the disc we could be screwed, but if not well then that opens the door for more characters to be downloadable content. There was rumor of M. Bison being in the game, but that could have been Photoshoped right? MvC2 had over 50 characters, I expect this roster to grow too.
Something I didn't like for instance were the stages, there's only like 6-7 stages to do battle on. You can't do versus on Galactus' stage, which doesn't make sense to me. No spectator mode is a really bad idea. I think that not haveing a spectator mode turns the game into more of a party game with friends in house, other than playing online. I'm not gonna sit on a blank screen while I wait for others to fight. Why does Capcom go backwards with some of these designs. It's odd to me that you can't do versus against the computer, practicing in training mode and doing the trials will only take you so far. Although the best experience you're probably going to get is online. Get ready for that Dante, Wolverine and Deadpool match up every time. Don't be a Jimmy!
