This game is I dare say the best comic book and Marvel game ever made. Not only is there a variety of heroes to play as, the variety of villains are actually my favorite part of the game. The game itself looks beautifully designed, the gameplay and controls are really easy and are very fluint. There could of been more combos added but I still think its close to perfect for a marvel game. For those who enjoyed playing X-Men Legends, Spider-man, Marvel's Nemesis, any marvel game made, this one takes the cake. The absolute best part of the game in my opinion has to be when you see the cinematic scenes. The cinemas in this game are the best of quality I've ever seen on a comic game. The profound detail you can see on the characters and there costumes is amazing. In fact if they wanted to make a movie the same way the cinemas looked in this game, I could finally rest. They are that good. Although there are not alot of them, they are the pay off in this game.
But much like my favorite movie, I can watch it over and over. The amped up graphics and plethora of heroes makes up for the generic uninspired levels. I spent hours (of fun) alone just unlocking the 3 main costumes for all of the characters (save Nick Fury, and Black Panther; haven't unlocked them yet). Of the 25 characters only a few leave you wanting more (Elektra I expected to be lack luster, but Blade?) but all and all it's the most euphoria I think a comic fan can have in gaming. Captain America alone is worth the price of admission. Between leveling up and searching for training discs and discovering the advantages of each character, I can see many many more days (months, years..pretty much when ever the next one is released) of finger blistering fun. The ONLY setback of the game is the uninspired levels, but what do you want from a dungeon crawler? And quite frankly, who the heck cares?
