Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite

Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite comes after the utter disappointment that was Street Fighter V, so I was hoping we would not get the same with the new game, but it seems that Capcom have become very lazy, as of late, with their fighting franchises.

In the story mode, it feels as if you are thrown into the final battle right away where both Videogame and Comic Book universes collide, while each of their worlds meld together into one, as does the big evil of the game from two characters to make one big bad. does this sound familiar? It might do if you ever played Mortal Kombat Vs DC, as yes this is pretty much the exact same story, and that’s not the worst part.

The writing, along with lame one liners, and a stupid twist is bad enough, but watching the terrible graphics, character design and body motion is beyond a joke. It’s like watching someone playing with a bunch of action figures, wait. scratch that. I would enjoy that more.

I know I may sound like I’m being mean, but seriously, playing the story mode is painful and feels like a chore.

The gameplay is terrible. Unlike MVC games of the past, it lacks fun, controls feel stiffer than usual and the 3-character team being reduced to only 2 gives less variety when playing. The only positive I can give the gameplay is that each character has a special ability when they fill up their power bars with some enjoyable animations.

There are a lack of modes to keep replayability at a minimum, but why is the gameplay so bad you are asking? Well, engaging in each battle feels slow and clunky. Special and Super moves feel less effective, fighting Ultron bots again and again is beyond repetitive, the game just straight up lacks the fun that made the previous games great. This one succeeds at one thing, however – making Marvel Vs Capcom 3 look great, when even that entry didn’t please fans as much as MVC 2.

Also the roster size is a joke compared to the previous game and there are on-disc characters coming out as DLC soon. typical Capcom.

The graphics look like a complete downgrade, which is quite the accomplishment when we are on a next-gen console. The backgrounds feel bare and lifeless apart from maybe one or two. Watching the character animations is again painful, I believe that Capcom had a lot of outsourcing on this game instead of working hard on it in house. Occasionally, they are good in parts, but you cannot help but compare games to its previous titles, this is especially when the last title came out on a previous gen system, the graphics have no right to be this unimpressive and level design feeling so lifeless and bleak. I feel like im repeating myself here, but these are gripes I cannot get my head around.

Capcom, please do better next time. Give us what you did with Resident Evil 7, which was a welcome return to form, with new elements that work to make the game better. Effort! MVC deserves true effort!

For the sound, let’s start with the music: generic superhero music that could be swapped with that from a Lego Super Heroes title and you wouldn’t notice. Bland and forgettable. Sound effects don’t match up to those which were enjoyable from previous games, making it really feel like Capcom didn’t even try. a usual day at the office then.

But here’s where the pain really begins with the sound in this game: really REALLY bad voice acting. Not even the ‘Resident Evil’ bad, but enjoyable kind. Voices just don’t suit the characters. Some are over the top like Thor or Arthur. Okay, so Iron man sounds a bit like Robert Downey Jr, but that’s the best I can say about it. Capcom: invest more in your triple-A games that you know the fans love and will buy.

Final Notes: It annoys me knowing the roster is smaller than the previous title, plus there’s the loss of the X-Men characters, most likely due to having to pay Fox for licensing, which is a bad move just to save a few bucks.

It annoys me when they put Megaman X in the front and centre of this title, that it is given as little effort as this game has. We finally have a MVC game where you can team up Megaman X and Zero to go up against Sigma, but nope, I cannot enjoy the sluggish controls and unimpressive art style to enjoy this game.

Your fans deserve better Capcom, don’t become another Konami.

Retro game fan, comic book reader, board game lover and film fanatic. I have loved videogames since I was 5 years old after visiting my first arcade, I have grown up with gaming since having my Atari 2600 then Commodore 64. I ended up building my own career crafting pixelised characters and have had the pleasure of meeting many of my retro gaming heroes who developed some of my absolute favourite games.
