    "This game has awesome graphics, however the story mode of about 3 hours seems to me like a chore. Yet I like the added element of infinity stones which can be used to improve the gaming. So yeah I'm sticking on the battle mode."

    "Powerful combos are the trademark of this game. Honestly when I first tried playing this with my friends, I was so helpless while they continuously combo'ed me to bits. It takes practice to master any of that. The beauty in this game is that once you learn it, you can fight back ."

    "I'm so addicted that I keep on coming back and play this game. What's best about this installment are the matchup tutorials and tips on how to play against a certain type of character. I've never seen anything such as this feature in other fighting games."
