Is Marvel vs Capcom a real fighting game?


Not trolling, serious. I downloaded MvC2 last night, it was fun enough when I was drunk. This morning I played, and wow. Coming from playing every iteration of Street Fighter (even the movie, the game, yeah that one), a dozen king of fighters titles, darkstalkers and the whole nine yards. I had no idea what was going on here. Is there a foundation of fundamentals here as deep as the titles I named earlier? The series at a glance appears gimicky. I’m only asking because I’m trying to decide if it will be as rewarding to learn.
