Great Marvel game, bad PS3 game

As far as playing your favorite Hero characters, this game is great and this is the only reason I played it all the way through.

As a PS3 game, this was kind of a disappointment for me. It feels too much like playing a regular PS2 game. Another bad idea was the way the motion sensing feature is used in most areas of the game. Some of the motion sensing is good such as using it to fight a weapon from an enemy or to move something heavy, but whats with shaking the controller to make your powers stronger?

Anyway, in closing if you like playing a game with your favorite heros, this is a good game to play simply for the story etc. But if you are wanting to play a great PS3 game, pick another title.

This game is worth a once through, Getting to play with four of your friends, each with your own favorite super hero is just incredible. Leveling up your heroes powers is very rewarding and doesn't really get old either. You can pick from just about every major Marvel Comic hero created, all have their own unique powers. The Graphics are the only part of this game that prevents it from getting much higher ratings.

Childhood heros come to life but still feel 2D :(

As button mashing games go this one is probably best of the worst. I think when I was 12 years old I would have loved the game play. Now in my late twenties, the only thing to hold my interest was getting to play comic book characters I’ve known and loved for years. I probably should have played this game for longer than elevn hours but knowing I could just rent another game in a few days made the nagging feeling of boredom set in all the more quickly.

Don’t get me wrong the game looks great and the few places that have puzzles (all be it painfully easy to figure out) can hold one’s attention from time to time. I consider myself a reasonably hard core gamer but this one’s game play is isn’t up to the high-intensity, adrenaline-inducing game play you’d expect from future mega-hit PlayStation 3 game.
