Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Problems: Is Sentinel Overpowered or Not?

If you have had a good chance to sit down and spend some time with the recently released Marvel Vs Capcom 3 game on either the Xbox 360 or PS3, some of you may be getting frustrated at the growing trend of some online players using one character all the time.

If you have the game, you won’t need us to tell you that the character we’re talking about is Sentinel. We too have heard the complaints that the giant robot seems to have extra vitality compared to other characters, and his selection of moves being overused are starting to take its toll on the hardcore following that lurk in the online servers.

For a little proof on the ‘Sentinel is overpowered’ claim, check out a user video we’ve found on YouTube, which gives you an idea of how easy it is to deplete an opponents lifebar with Sent using an easy ground/air/hyper combo.

Of course there’s always going to be two sides of the story and we bet theres a lot of you who think Sentinel is just fine. One notable person who disagrees with that claim though is professional gamer Justin Wong, just check out his angry Tweet about the game and more importantly, about Sent:

”If you want to win in MVC3, just learn how to play sentinel in 1 minute and your skills will improve dramatically… Time to go back to MVC2.”

So where do you lie on the Sentinel debate in Marvel Vs Capcom 3, is he overpowered or not? One things for sure though, if the heat continues, don’t be surprised if Capcom step in and tweak him in the first update.

You’ll find complete move lists for each character here.
