So after looking at OfficialMvC3 Channel on youtube I'm quit surprised to see that that they really are making a ULTIMATE Marvel vs Capcom 3 and that they are making this game even more "broken". Arial X-factor made this game an up and a down being able to get away from chip damage while blocking in the air (i assume). Even more characters such as Hawkeye, Firebrad, Ghostrider even Strider (yessss) made my day and they even added more moves to the current case move list. This opens up more options and MAYBE balances the game a bit.

I was excited to see that they were releasing this game because I thought it would just be some DLC of the 12 characters I heard about then realized it was a completely new CD. I was upset because I bought a game, that is basically now useless, for $20 dollars more. I am not going to get it because 12 characters aren't even all that. I would be willing to trade in MvC3 to lighten the blow a liiiittle bit but that was if it was bringing back characters that I missed like Cyclops or Venom but the only truly interesting ones to me are Nemesis and maybe Nova and Ghost Rider. The rest are pretty bleh and the other updates aren't worth the $40 dollars. Now if you don't have the original MvC3 there should be no doubt in your mind that you should get it! By the way, here are the 12 characters: (Marvel) Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, Hawkeye, Iron Fist, Nova, Rocket Raccoon (Capcom) Firebrand, Frank West, Nemesis T-Type,Phoenix Wright, Strider Hiryu, Vergil

This version is DLC on disc , similar to the Super version of SF4 ,but dont worry ,the DLC included here makes this game definately better then the 1st versiion with 12 new charactersto the game like Ghost Rider , Iron Fist , Nemesis , Firebrand ,Hawkeye ,Rocket Racoon , Vergil and other more, the characters are great but some of them like Rocket Racoon ,well , i wouldreally likeif they included Venom , Cyclops ,or other character more know , but its Ok , Online mode gets better on the 8 player lobby , now you can spectate the match when you are not playing it , and its fun , but the game needs time to really dominate iton everything , also Heroes & Heralds Mode is Ok , but its nothing really interesting, the Problem with this game is then its morelike Tatsunoko vs Capcom and not like Marvel vs Capcom original gameplay , but i dont really care alotof that because the game is good on a lot of aspects
Rated 9 out of 10 by Electronaut72 Not quite ultimate, but a respectable update
It may be a shameless cash-in on it's predecessor, but Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 packs just enough new features to be substantial. Most importantly, there's 12 new fighters: Strider, Firebrand, Ghost Rider, Hawkeye, Vergil, Phoenix Wright, Nemesis, Frank West, Doctor Strange, Rocket Raccoon, Nova, and Iron Fist. The entire interface has been redone, character endings are different (or at least modified), the original stages have alternate versions, X-factor can now be performed mid-air, and many of the returning characters have been overhauled in the form of tweaks and new special moves. Even so, some aspects about this release still feel lazy. The opening cinematic is stylish, but it's really just 5 minutes of freeze-frame 3D models. Also, several beloved characters on both the Capcom and Marvel side are inexplicably absent in favor of lesser-knowns (How could they leave out Mega Man, Captain Commando, Cyclops, Venom, Blade, ect?). Looking past these things, UMVC3 is a superb 2 fighter--I dare say the best there is right now. If you liked the first edition, you'll love this one.

9 months after the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3, comes Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. A more balanced version with 12 additional new characters and 8 new/revamped stages. The character changes will only be noticed by the hardcore players while the rest will see this as the exact same game that came out 9 months ago. You can now spectate matches in the Online mode but sadly, the game is still lacking a replay function/channel found in Super Street Fighter 4.
The new characters added in UMvC3 add a lot of depth and different strategies to the already massive character roster. This game is worth picking up if you're a hardcore fighting game fan. People that want a chaotic and fun game will also enjoy this. If you already owned the previous MvC3 and didn't like it, then it may be best to stay away from this. Overall, it's a good improvement over the original.

I would like to inform everyone on these boards/preview buzz posts that this 'new' game is the result of the earthquake/tsunami that hit Japan at the beginning of the year. ALL of the 'new' stuff that is on this new disc (upgrades, patches, characters, modes, etc.) was intended to be DLC before the tsunami/earthquake. That is why it is at a discounted price of $39.99, which is WAY cheaper than buying all the DLC it was originally supposed to be. With that being said....this franchise is just awesome!!! I cannot wait to pick up this game!!! I have played the other incarnations when they came out, years past, and I could never get too much into them. When I picked up the original MvC3, I was blown away! Yes, the gameplay is 'simplistic' compared to most, but it is NOT broken or 'cheap'. It's simply more accessable to ALL players and casual gamers alike! Yes, it could get boring after a while, but it just sooo fun to play with the whole family! The characters are amazing!! My wife and kids and I all have a weekly tournament! Getting UMvC3 is just gonna be awesome for all the new characters and play modes!! Cannot wait!!!!
Rated 0 out of 10 by MyKell Good game but has gotten far too technical
It's like the baseball season.. nothing really matters in the beginning of the season (or round) until the playoffs (or once your super meter is charged) And this new Ultimate MvC game is more of the same with some added characters. So then the original mvc3 game will go ignored. for shame. Now say what you will about the Mortal Kombat series. They were obviously made for the more casual fighting game fan and once some of the broken mechanics were found and exploited by the more hardcore fans, and exposed the games as being broken and unbalanced. The die hard fighting game community turned away laughing at the franchise. BUT, this new MK, and future ones to come, will eventually be just as significant as MvC and the Street Fighter series in the tournament scene. Before you buy another game of the same, I'd check out the MK re-boot for the same price.
Rated 0 out of 10 by placecoolnicknamehere Not the best idea in the world
Regardless of the fact that the game is 20 dollars cheaper than the original game, its not necessarily practical to assume that so soon after the first game to release a disc-based update because its too expensive on consumer and producer. They would have been wiser to not make this disc based content because it would be cheaper and it would be alot more accessible than, say another friggin disc. They could probably take the idea from Street Fighter and do both like Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade edition being 15 bucks DLC. That made it easier for players who already own the game. All in all i'm not looking forward to this because i am under the impression that insted of releasing characters their fans want to see they're gonna give us 3-4 characters fans are excited about and a few more that fans dont care for. Prime example: MODOK. "'nuff said"

I played MvC3 at a friend's house and absolutely loved it. I didn't and don't have money at the time to buy it, but now that this has been announced I'm getting this instead! I will have money by November to get this and I will certainly get it, I thought when play MvC3 that Ghost Rider should be in it, he is one of my favorite Marvel characters, now that he is I am super excited about this game. Capcom makes the best fighting games and I love comic books so this is perfect for me. It was a great idea to release this edition instead of just adding so much more DLC, that would be a lot of DLC to release. But when this comes out I think they should release more DLC, because Venom isn't a character yet, maybe he will end up being one of the 12, but I'm not sure. I hope so, this game will rock!
