With the recent release of the hugely popular Avengers movie, it is no surprise that many people are looking to infuse some exciting superhero action into their lives. While it would be pretty easy to go outside and find the nearest barrel of radioactive material and try to get superpowers, it is a lot easier/safer to stay inside and play some comic-themed video games. We will compare two different video games here - Arkham City and Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is loaded with pretty much any superhero that you could imagine. Some of the highlights representing the Marvel side include Wolverine, Captain America, Spider-man, and She-hulk. Representing the Capcom side is a variety of superheroes including Ryu, Viewtiful Joe, Zero, and Frank West.
Admittedly, these games are far different in terms of gameplay. Arkham City is an action-adventure game with elements of stealth, and beat-em-up adventure. The story is more in-depth and complex than Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a no-frills, hands-on fighting action. You want action and immediate results? Plug in your controls and start beating the crap out of your opponents.
The stages in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 are also extremely varied. Locations include Kattelox Island from Megaman, the Daily Bugle from Spiderman, Demon Village from Ghost n' Goblins], and Metro City from Final Fight.
It comes as no surprise that a superhero game would be loaded with tons of weaponry, and when it comes to weaponry we know that billionaire Bruce Wayne is always going to have a huge arsenal. In Arkham City, the selection of weapons includes the Batarang, the Batclaw, Fear Gas, the Smylex, and the Lazarus Pit.
In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, each superhero has their own special set of weaponry. Wolverine of course uses his claws, Spider-man uses his webs, Captain America uses his shield, etc.
