I rented this game after not ever playing any other Marvel game before and I was pleasantly surprised. It pretty much is a hack and slash rpg but I didn't find myself getting bored. I think this is due to the fact you have soooo many different characters you can use and that different combination's of each character give you different attacks to use on the enemies. Mildly challenging as with any hack and slash game but FULL of Marvel content, I actually learned quite a bit about some of my fav marvel characters playing this game. Just a few hours into the game you have the option to split off into different story lines, this leaves a whole unplayed game to go back and play after you finish the first. All in all the graphics weren't amazing and the game-play was basic but I found myself coming back for more and more till the very end. Great game for a long weekend my friends!!

Cons:
Gameplay gets monotonous as wave after wave of identical baddies charge your group
Camera controls are often removed entirely, such that you can be stuck behind a pillar, swarmed by 8 enemies and not be able to see anything
Combat becomes so chaotic it's difficult to distinguish characters
Basic (non-fusion) combat amounts to button-mashing

Pros:
Colorful character line-up, even among the unplayable heroes & bosses
Excellent graphics
Good level design
Fusion attacks are unique and inspired
Solid plot line along the Marvel Civil War series
Deadpool makes everything better

This game play is fun, but there are some quirks that need to be worked out. I am stuck on one part of the game and it will not let me advance to the next part, it just has a loading screen up indefinitely. Sometimes the dialogue skips over and over.
Also, the inability to play the different sides on separate saved games is frustrating.
