Day two of three has arrived and it answers this important question:
Which 2011 games did I find shockingly good and shockingly not-so-good?
Well read on, friend. The answer awaits you!
Most Disappointing Game of 2011
Winner: Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (PS3)
Capcom vs SNK 2 is my favorite of the VS series of Capcom fighting games. I never appreciated any of the other VS games like it. The original Marvel vs Capcom was close though.
I thought Marvel vs Capcom 3 was going to be less frantic than it ended up being and I was hoping there was going to be more effort put forth in the other modes surrounding it — like in Super Street Fighter IV or Mortal Kombat.
All hardcore fighting game fans only really care about the core game, but I’m not a hardcore fighting game player. I need a bit more than just the mechanics.
I also couldn’t believe Capcom would release a revision of the game at $39.99 in the same calendar year. That move alone sours me on Capcom fighting games in the foreseeable future. Sorry, Street Fighter X Tekken.
Runner-up: L.A Noire
