Some have claimed it’s a little too dumbed down, and some have replied ‘shut up you big stupid elitist game hipster’, but Marvel vs. Capcom is now in the wild, and it’s your turn to let us know your opinion on the game.
I haven’t spent too much time with it, but liked what I saw. It’s the kind of game where every button push seems to make you do something amazing, which creates very little genuine sense of scale, but makes the game fun in short burst with casual fighting fans. On some level I can understand the whinging of hardcore players, but in my mind it falls into the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom category of eliminating a lower level of raw technique in favour of a higher level of strategy – sort of like Smash Bros.
Yeah, a weird comparison, but there you have it.
But what do you guys think? Too niche or not niche enough?
