I've played other recent fighing games before, but was put off by the sheer hardness of pulling of any kind of attack.
Then I heard MVC3 had a simple mode and was finally relieved. After having played through the Arcade mode several times, and having tried some online play (which im rubbish at), I can say the simple mode is a breath of fresh air.
I'm not a massive fighting game person, but i've always wanted one I could get into easily and pretty much everyone I know is playing this.
MVC3 offers that. Admittadly I havent tried it in normal yet, but I know that will take more training and practice, but tbh... simple mode does me.
The Arcard (storymode) isnt much of a story mind. Its just 6 tounds and then you fight the end boss, who on easy is easy to take down.
There are lots of unlock using PP (Player points) which are easy to earn from fights, such as different endings for the characters who lay the fnal blow on Galactus, character models, bios, etc etc.
I also found the existing character selection pretty good. Id never played MVC2 so I dont see any issues there. The only gripe i'm annoyed with is that (right now) it seems its around -3.99 EACH to download ONE new DLC character. Thats a rip off tbh.
Graphics wise... it looks awesome. It not amazing and the character animations arent astounding, but it does look very nice. The areas you fight in arent that varied, but there are enough to break up the choice.
The Online, from what I can tell, is stop on and easy to get into.
You also have a character card where it shows all your wins, looses, displays an icon and badge (which you cna change a you unlock moe) etc etc.
All round, a nice package and easy to play.
