Regardless of what anyone says about this game having "RPG" elements, I have to say that's rubbish. Yes, you can pick and choose what powers you upgrade. Yes, you can take some side collections quests. It's still a button-mashing beat 'em up. That's not a bad thing, either.
The game is by no means boring if for no other reason than the obscene amounts of Marvel characters and cameos that are in the game. If you're a Marvel comics fan you're doing yourself a grave disservice by not picking this title up.
You have the standard mashing game combo system, leveling logic, and special powers. If your characters can fly in the comics they will also have the ability to fly in the game. Playing as the Silver Surfer and scooting around on your board is ridiculously fun. Combat is simply a matter of deciding if you're going to grapple, punch, or fire off a super power. The combat controls are easy, fluid, and intuitive with NO LAG OR MOVE QUEUES like some masher games.
The villain boss fights are all fantastic and no villain or hero appearance ever strays from character. The story is actually pretty decent from a "didn't see that coming" feel.
All in all a great drooling fan-boy experience for all of us comic nerds. Pick it up. Rent it. Buy it. Whatever. Just play it in some way and enjoy. One of my favorites for the PSP to this date.
This is a game you can pop in and start playing. For the PSP there are more special things in the game. I have the game on many systems and on the PSP offers the most without paying extra. You have a hardcore setting and many other ways to play through the game. If you are able to get some friends together this is an awsome game. This is one of the games which really is not hard, but not always easy. There is not a point in the game which I just got mad and had to set it down. This is one of the games which is just fun to get on and play.
