Yes, I still have it for the Sega Saturn( USA & JPN versions ) and PS1

Shame it isn't a part of Capcom's Marvel Origins collection as I liked it over the MSH game

Oh yeah! I loved this game more than Marvel Super Heroes since I loved seeing the backgrounds change whenever the characters win.

I could only beat Juggernaut with Storm.

I definitely would love to pick up this game on Sega Saturn someday, if I have the money to buy me a Sega Saturn.

Yeah! I have never seen a game at the time where the scenery changes and that always made this game more interesting!

I LOVE this game! I could go on for a while about the game mechanics, this games' contributions to Capcoms' future crossover series, and just learning every character on the roster, however, I'll simply reply with how this game cemented my love for the X-Men as a whole!

I loved the crashing floor on the Mojoworld screen, so cool. Almost always played as either Psylocke or Iceman :)

Yep - I always chose Spiral. Unfortunately, I was not able to locate a copy of the game for my home use and the emulator I used didn't work so well with fighting games. It's apparently very rare.

@jhazzroucher typhoon to keep him away and then hail storm. I may have beat him a few times with Wolverine and Psylocke, but Storm was the easy go to.

No, it's not available on Sega Genesis. I actually still have my Sega Saturn from when it launched. But the memory unit died on it so I can't save any games which kinda sucks.

If you really want to play it, download the rom for the arcade version.

Just make sure you get the right emulator and pay attention to the instructions. If you get the wrong one it won't work. It can get kinda confusing to use. www.cool-rom.com has a ton of games. With the Nintendo 64 games and older all have emulators and roms that are easy to use.

Me too. I always spam typhoon so Sentinel wouldn't be able to get near Storm.

But I kinda find Colossus to be the most difficult to beat.

yes. when is is able to get near, he would dash or jump to hit you.

That's why the only way to win is to keep away from him by spamming typhoon on air and on the ground.

Magneto is very very difficult to beat. He is definitely the toughest boss in marvel vs capcom series.

I can only beat him when i use Storm.

for me, my least favorite was Magneto's stage because it's not like other stages that really moves or the ground breaks and puts you to another stage.

my favorite is the danger room, it scene changes from time to time.

I wonder why UMVC3 didn't make stages similar to the xcota stages which were done well.

I've wondered about that too. It's like the same things keep happening in the backgrounds while in X-men Children of the Atom, the stage changes depending on whether or not the character wins.

I never played this game as it was a little before my time, but it seems the movesets are nearly identical to MvC 2. Colossus, Thanos and Juggernaut! I dominated with this team until the online version came to the playstation store. Then I met a combo called Magneto, Storm and Psylocke. I lost 80 billion times in a row.

and eventhough Storm seems to be a good character to use, she was tagged as a low tier character, one of the weakest actually for this game.

I loved Children of the Atom! I remember when I was a kid I would kick ass with Storm and thought I was so awesome at the game lol. Turned out she was just high tier. I used Colossus, Iceman, and Psylocke alot too.

She had a lot of moves that were slow and underpowered. You'd end up spending more time chaining them than removing parts of the enemies' health bar. Technically, Silver Samurai and Spiral were in the lowest tier, too, but Spiral's moveset just clicked for me. Storm, Spiral and Psylocke didn't weigh that much, so would get knocked around a lot and more easily stunned even though Spiral and Storm could safe fall and escape from certain moves. The real bad thing about Storm was that certain characters could completely ignore many of her attacks and hit her for big damage (Colossus' shoulder charge was a big issue even though in certain levels she could keep on spamming lightning and typhoon without him getting close). I chalk it up to their having no idea what she was capable of because a lot of her moves, while they fit the character, didn't resemble the comic version at all. I mean, a lightning ball versus bolt?

I see. Yeah. Storm's typhoon is the most useful by spamming but most of her attacks are weaker and less useful. Good thing lightning attack is good in umvc3 but the typhooon is very very slow, making it useless. I really don't find lightning ball useful since xcota to umvc3
