Great multiplayer, dull single player
on 3 October 2007
What more could you want from a videogame than dozens of superheroes from the Marvel universe getting together in one game to save the world(s)?! Most of the best are here including Spiderman, Captain America, X-Men, Ironman, Fantastic 4, Thor, Ghost Rider, Silver Surfer, Blade, Elecktra and many more, but unfortunately some of my favourites such as The Punisher, Dare Devil and The Incredible Hulk are missing for some reason.
That aside, it is a fantastic game where you run around literally bashing everything in sight, so it is not much of a thinking game at all. One of the best things about this game is the end of level bosses which are huge. Also, in one of the levels about halfway through there is an arcade machine section where your superhero is sucked into the cabinet and then has to play through a level of the classic 80's game "Pitfall" to progress.
On single player this game unfortunately gets very repetitive very quickly, but on multiplayer this game is great fun where between 2 and 4 players can team up and go through the main story together.
As a bonus to the main story there are various comic book missions where a selected hero plays out some of their most famous stories from the comics.
Overall this is a good game that is fun while it lasts but there is not really any replay value in it at all.
