The release of this port of the arcade fighting classic "Marvel vs. Capcom 2" for iPhone/iPad has been cleverly timed to this week's release of "The Avengers" movie. On one hand, it's unbelievable that the $2.99 game comes compete with the entire 56-character roster, including Thor, Spider-Man, Iron Man and video-game characters such as Mega Man and Strider. The downside, however, is that playing a complicated fighting game with touchscreen controls is kind of like listening to music with your head underwater. The experience just ain't the same.
