Video Game of the Week – Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

At first glance, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, the new super-hero fighting game from Capcom, is everything you wouldn’t want your teen to be playing. After all it’s a fighting game – the whole point of the action is to punch, kick, shoot, and blast your opponents to oblivion. Plus, some of the dialogue is more than a little suggestive; and to describe the handful of female characters as full-figured would be a considerable understatement.

And yet there is something about Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that quickly gets you beyond those superficial observations, and instead reminds you why this latest addition to the classic Marvel vs. Capcom franchise has been one of the most eagerly awaited games of the last ten years.

As followers of the series know, Marvel vs. Capcom features characters from earlier Capcom games against characters from the classic Marvel Comics series. Thus, Akuma, Dante, and Ryu share the stage with Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Wolverine. There are 38 characters in all, each one possessing their own unique set of fighting skills.

In this latest edition, up to two players compete in battle using a tag team of three characters that can be swapped out at any time during the match. The aim is to destroy your opponents, or at least drain their health so you are declared the winner when time runs out.

Like many other established video game titles, Capcom has simplified the controls of this latest offering to make it more accessible to newcomers. Combat still takes place with white-knuckle intensity, but many of the characters and moves are relatively easy to master. That leaves more time for strategy – it’s not just how you fight but what you learn along the way. There is a constant sense of progression, as you experiment and add various tricks to your repertoire.

That Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is an intense fighting game is undeniable, but there is none of the cruelty and gratuitous blood-letting that you see in some M-rated games. Here, the violence is true to its comic book origins, and the overall content is much milder than the average PG-13 movie.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 definitely earn its “T” for Teen rating, but it also earns two E’s for excellent entertainment!

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is rated “T” for Teen (mild language, partial nudity, sexual themes, violence) by the ESRB. Check out the ESRB video game ratings and content descriptors at ESRB.org
