Tag-Team Gameplay

Although Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds features a single player story mode in which you can play the Fate of Two Worlds storyline out in the role of each of the playable characters, the game is primarily a one-on-one crossover fighting game featuring heroes and villains from the Marvel Comics and Capcom video game universes. In this, action is team-based as players, either fighting against AI or a human opponent select three characters to stand against their opponent's three characters. Battles are essentially tag-team events, as at any time players can choose to switch characters as they look to string together combos that will do the most damage against opponents. All characters have special moves. In addition, special combos can be unleashed by each character after filling their power gauge while playing. Team combos can also be unleashed by switching between certain characters at specific times during fights.

The respective arch villains of the Marvel and Capcom universes, Doctor Doom, nemesis to the Fantastic Four and Albert Wesker, STARS turncoat and flunky for the Umbrella Corporation in the Resident Evil franchise, have joined forces in a quest for overall conquest in both worlds.

For some people, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is perhaps the greatest arcade fighter ever made.  It had such a strong following that finding a used copy of the game would easily run you around seventy bucks.  And for eleven years fans clamored and demanded a Marvel vs. Capcom 3... something that for the longest time didn't seem like it would happen.  In February of 2011 the impossible became a reality when Marvel vs. Capcom 3 dropped down.  For as much fun as it is... there are certain …

The Fate of Two Worlds has been 11 years in the making.
The original Marvel Vs Capcom debuted in 1999 and it's superior sequel came out a year later.  Teaming up with popular Marvel comic's characters with Capcom video games biggest heroes and villians in a fighting game environment was awesome fun.  It took ELEVEN YEARS for a new installment to come out but was it worth it?  You bet.      The game is largely unchanged with you picking three characters to go up against a friend or the computers 3 man team to …

An incredibly fun fighter, and (imo) improves upon everything that was in the last one, with the exception of a smaller character roster with some being released DLC i hope to see more down the line.

Worth the money and worth the wait, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 brings fun in fighting to the next gen consoles. For those who just started, make sure to view Shoryuken.com's Hyper Guides. Trust me, you'll be happy to see these.    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzQ5EwkndhU    Now if only they could fix the online component and add even more characters.
Quick Tip by . February 20, 2011
The heroes and villains from the world of Capcom's video games and Marvel's Comic Books team up to save both worlds from Galactus. Long awaited follow up to the mammothly popular fighting game from 2000 keeps what works, improves what didn't and it's just as much fun.
