If you are a Marvel fan or a fan of the X-men legelnds 1 or 2, then this is a no brainer. Its good old pick up and play type of fun. Switch characters on the go, type fun, beat 'em up and level up type of fun. Its a "find everything scattered through the levels" type of fun. It's also an "unlock everything" type of fun.

Pick your four-some and get to work. Its a very good game with solid visuals. The best system to play it on. It does suffer just a little from having to rotate the camera and stuff, but its minor. The other thing you will notice is that you really can't narrow it down to 4 characters at a time, especially when the roster of superstars is so HUGE. Play it through, then play it again with 4 other characters, etc.

Stop reading, buy it or rent it and start playing!

As most of you probably knew, there are unlockable characters, and there are unlockable outfits for each, I'll say an average of about 3, some have more, some have less. In my opinion, the default costumes you start out with (the Legend costumes) are the worst looking of the bunch. When I think of Thor, I wanna see what I remember reading when I was a kid, not some goofy looking guy with a shabby beard and a hammer it looks like he stole off a bob the builder display, LUCKILY, it was pretty easy to unlock the Classic Thor, so I have what I wanted.

Gameplay is pretty fun, all the characters have a variety of unique moves you can unlock as you level up. The camera angle is easily the worst aspect of the game IMO, as well as what most I have played online with said, seems everyone loves the game, cept the camera angles could be better, it is hard to see at times other than an almost overhead view, which doesn't leave much room to see what's coming.

Starting characters i was suprised to see you didn't have to unlock:
Deadpool
Colossus
Moon Knight
Marvel Girl
Spider GIRL

If you are a fan of Marvel comics, you'll have no problems enjoying this game

Most fun I have had playing a game in years. Limitless list of characters and powers...killer story line and customizable characters awesome. Loved this game.
