In our Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite review-in-progress, critic Tamoor Hussain said the game's underlying mechanics make it an "outstanding fighting game."
He wrote: "Capcom has understood what caused the stagnation of Marvel vs. Capcom 3's competitive scene and, to some extent, the issues Street Fighter V currently faces. In response it has created a fighting game focused on individuality and expression, with deep systems that reward studious players but also accommodate casuals. As someone who both plays and watches fighting games, I am excited to see what the future holds for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite."
