Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

New control schematic and less raw edge for classic follow up.

If you know of the Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 then this will give you the context of hyper stylized free for all way over the top mish mosh of 3 on 3 tag team fighting (via 1 or 2 players controlling either one or the other team) starring Marvel Comics and Capcom game charecters. Yes, as the 'kids' mention in their reviews that there aren't sexualized charecters,...but there are, such as Felicia the cat woman who wears essentially tape on her bikini area as well as Morrigan the vampire woman who bears it just barely from view on top. These aren't done as distastefully as some but as a parent YOU at least will notice.The button layout is no longer top buttons punch, lower buttons kick but a combination of just attacks low to high and then an 'uppercut' button. This scheme does not feel as accesable as it's predecessor but some may be able to adjust to it or not be a problem to those not familiar with the old game. The additions of Rocket Racoon, Spiderman, Wolverine, Strider, Ryu, Dante and 36 other charecters has something for everyone.With the new controls and more streamlined graphics it doesn't feel as fun and raw as MVC2 did but younger players will adapt to it much easier.

I'm confused CS

Don't you guys normally base your scores of games off of how fun they are and not off of their content? You gave the original MvC3 a positive score and this is an improvement of it, so what's the deal?

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
