Average.......and a let down
on 12 November 2006
I love the Marvel comic universe and was looking forward to this game coming out.It isn't everyday you get to play as Spider-man,Wolverine,Captain America and Thor.
Sadly the game doesn't live up to the expectations i had.The look of the games is really poor.The playstation 2 is nearing the end of its life and yet this looks like a game that came out when the console first came out.
The screen is too busy with characters getting in each others' way, and i found it frustrating.The combat is nothing special and i feel that the game developers had ambition with this game but couldn't deliver their ideas.I love co-operative games, but this was not a fun experience.The management side of the team is almost unneccessary and feels like it was bolted on to the main game.Some of the conversations between the good guys and bad guys are dire - the dialogue boxes feel like they have come from the playstation 1.
This could have been so much better, and i hope that Justice League Heroes is better than this, which comes out later in November.
I would suggest playing this before buying - preferrably a demo if you can.
If you are looking for a co-operative game that works,is fun and addictive pick either of the Lego Star Wars games, or either of the Baldurs Gate games.They are ten times better than this attempt.
Sorry!I really wanted to like this game...........
