Due to the new direction of MVC 3, I wondered what the goal of this game was. (is this actually a sequel to MVC 2) and answer is no. And here is why
For a game to be sequel, the core of the game must be intact. The absences of Punch and Kick commands severely limits players to very few combos when compared to MVC2, not to mention the lack of control players had before. When making a sequel to a fighting game, it?s not a good idea to change everything that made it good. This is not MVC it?s a new entity entirely: Think of this as the first ?Capcom vs. Marvel?, or CVM. Then MVC 4 would really be CVM 2.
Niitsuma refuses to listen to anyone who wants to make this game better, he thinks his ideas are superior and that he knows what we want more than we do, and that his vision of MVC is better than the original.
You know, it?s this same way of thinking that brought us ?Legend of Chun-Li?, ?Resident Evil: Extinction?, and coming in theaters ?Resident Evil: Afterlife?. Those films were the result of people getting too creative with something that was already made.
Despite all this, I still think it?s going to be a descent game, the graphics are amazing. And the combos look enticing. I just wish it could be MVC.
