Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 

 

It looks like the video game industry was not good enough with Marvel vs Capcom 3. So now we have Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on the Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. I used the Xbox 360 version for this review. There are forty-eight characters, a refined fighting system, eight new stages, and new modes. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 takes the Marvel universe, the Capcom universe, and combines them all in one massive fighting game.

Don't know what a fighting game is? You pick a team of three characters and battle a team of three characters. It is one at a time. When one characters is knocked out, they automatically jump over to another characters. The match is won when one team has no characters left to battle with. The battles involve punching, kicking, and using all kinds of super powers.

Expect the entire screen to light up when the player launches a mega powerful attack. These can decide a match. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is one of those exclusive games. Sort of like getting into a certain club. Only certain people are allowed in. This is the opposite of how families are. Families are more inclusive. The content in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is so adult only that I would not recommend letting a child watch you play this game.

Almost every female character in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 are exposing themselves in bedroom only ways. It really is time the video game industry moves past treating women as sex objects. There are also images of zombies in this home console title. The violence is way over the top. The one saving grace to the violence is the super powered attacks hide most of it. They last for short periods of time, but it was a nice respite.

I understand there are some characters with bad attitudes, but did we really need the profanity? The narrators voice made me feel like I was at the arcade. But some of the characters language made me want to lose and get a different one. The music in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is strong, and adds to the overall presentation.

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 contains a dizzying amount of unlockable content. Two players can bash each others faces in locally, or go online to do it with up to eight players. There are leaderboards so you can see where you stack up. Adults who can handle the content issues with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 can achieve many hours of replay.

There are two kinds of players when it comes to Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Those that mash the buttons, and those that have a degree in the controls. You think I am kidding? These characters have an arsenal of moves. Add in the varying degrees of super powered attacks, and you could literally spend a week studying it all. Let alone being able to master it. Then try and devise a strategy that works for that situation. I am a button masher, and won most of the time. Which irritates those that take the time to comprehend the fighting system in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

I would say that Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is an adults only game. The lessons about violence and women are not healthy for any of us in the real world. The characters in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 are trying to stop Galactus from eating the earth. But honestly after beating him a few times, I started to wonder if that was really the point. I felt like I was fighting for the sake of fighting. And I have matured past that point. I would rather do good, and help others.

Parents need to be extremely careful with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. This is the kind of a game that will increase aggression as scientific studies have shown. Does your child need to be more aggressive? Do you want them looking at women as their very exposed chests bounce around? Do you think they can handle that kind of content?
