I'll be Frank on this one. ^_____^ Yeah yeah, we know... he's covered wars.... The first Dead Rising was an incredibly successful game, so it's understandable why Capcom put Frank in TVC & MVC3. I just don't see how this bloke fits in with the rest of the roster, besides being blatant comic relief (which I personally don't find that funny). His TVC fighting style is reminiscent of Jill's in the way that he uses zombies, but notably more goofy (and less cool). Overall, I think classic Jill's more serious "zombie-based" fighting style was done far better. That version of Jill would've been a cleaner and better character for the rosters of TVC and MVC3 / MVC: Infinite. Missed opportunities Capcom. -___-

Visually, he's not much to look at... he's just the "average joe". *Yaaaawn* He even resembles Nico Belic from GTA4 in TVC gameplay. IMO, Frank West is a pretty boring FG character overall. Other Capcom favorites like Strider, Captain Commando, or Jin Saotome all would've been better choices for a crossover game. His voice is also very... very annoying. In TVC, he says "Ohh my gosh" about 10 times a match.... dumb. They changed up his fighting style in UMVC3 for the better, but all the same issues persist. Meh.
