Fun fighting game, could've been better with more options
I have not played a fighting game in years, but I have been so into comic films as of late I got this one and Injustice I & II for my birthday. I have played through the story modes of each now and I have played through the arcade mode a couple of times on Injustice and this one and so I feel I can give it a score and review it now. This one was good, I thought the story mode was pretty good, the fighting really good; however, the arcade mode was lacking. This is why I give the first Injustice game the edge, while that one has stiffer fighting controls, overall I enjoy the fact there is so much more to do with each individual character and they each have an ending. Here, you play through the arcade and it is fun and the fighting easier for me to do combos, but no matter who you choose, you get the same credit scroll.
The story has Capcom's world and Marvel's combining as Ultron and Sigmund have united (literally) to try and remove the flesh from the universe. It is up to many of the Capcom and Marvel heroes to fight to stop him, collect the infinity stones and save the united realms from Ultron Sigma. They will also have trouble from the mad titan and Jedha as well.
The story mode was good, but could have been longer as I wouldn't of minded more pairings just taking out Ultron's thugs. The fighting in this one is a bit unbalanced, in that there are characters stronger so some match ups are a bit more difficult to get past. The arcade mode though is lacking as they don't even save your stats as you battle through seven battles and then you fight the boss at the end of the story mode and no individual endings for any characters so no matter who you win the game with, same thing. The mission mode is not as good as Injustice's either as all the missions are comprised of here are doing insanely hard combos to a CPU enemy who does not fight you back, but does block, throwing off your combo...
It is a good game, as I really thought the fighting and special moves in this one was very cool. I played arcade mode with Chun Li and Ryu teaming up and I was able to do some amazing combos with them. I do like the tag battle too, but I also thought there should be a single vs mode in arcade so I could do one on one battles. The roster is fairly large; however, they are still charging 30 bucks for extra character packs which features five characters...paid 19.98 for the entire game and without individual endings I see no reason to purchase them anyways. They made a fun fighting game, but during this day and age, there should be more to do in a fighter and more to see to keep one playing.
