Yeah yeah, he's covered wars... I know. Dead Rising was no doubt an incredibly successful game, so it's understandable why Capcom put Frank in TVC & MVC3. I just don't see how he fits in with the rest of the roster besides being a comic relief character (but I personally don't find him funny). His fighting style is reminiscent of Jill's in the way he uses zombies, but notably more goofy. Overall, Jill's "zombie-based" fighting style was done much better and I would've much rather seen her cross over to TVC.

Visually, he's not much to look at... he's just the average joe. He even resembles Nico Belic from GTA4 in gameplay. *yawn* In all honesty, Frank West kinda bores me as a fighting game character. Other Capcom favorites like Strider, Captain Commando, or Jin Saotome would have fit in eons better with the cast. Ohh, and his voice is also incredibly annoying. On average, he says "Ohh my gosh" about 10 times a match (in TVC).... Lame. And no, I wasn't pleasantly surprised of his appearance in UMVC3. They changed up his fighting style for the better in UMVC3, but he's still a goof and really doesn't make sense in the game if you ask me.
