    4.50 / 5

Pros

  • Excellent visuals, exciting gameplay, gigantic roster of colourful characters

Cons

  • No quick button for ultra combos, some overpowered fighters can wipe the floor with the rest of the roster

Bottom Line

Few games are still played as regularly (and viciously) as Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is in our office. This re-release of one of the zaniest, craziest and most addicting 2D fighters to date is a welcome treat for every fighter enthusiast.

5 Awesome MvC 2 Team-ups

McKinley put together five three-character teams that are guaranteed to kick major amounts of ass. Check them out and be sure to experiment to find your own ultimate team.

Gambit, Spider-Man, Wolverine Quick, lethal and easy to use, this collection of Marvel Heroes is a good start for people new to MVC2, as well as challenge-seeking seasoned fighters.

Cable, Iceman, Storm Cable's special attacks can set up for flexible and damaging combos, while Storm and Iceman pack plenty of long-range special attacks and ultra combos for chipping away damage.

B.B. Hood, Jill Valentine, Felicia B.B. Hood's explosive attacks make great counters and anti-air surprises, while Jill Valentine excels at cluttering the screen with undead nasties to distract the opponent. Felicia's the fastest of the three, and her support attacks are both quick and flexible.

Dr. Doom, Venom, Magneto Venom's got pretty good speed for such a huge character, but the villains in this terror trio have amazing potential for air combos and chip damage, especially Doctor Von Doom's downward smash attacks and gaunlet ammo.

Tron Bonne, Iron Man, Sentinel Tron Bonne takes damage like a champ, but her real strength comes from her ability to rack up hits and launch devastating combos. Iron Man's armed to the teeth with explosives and bombs galore, while the Sentinel is one of the game's top powerhouses.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
