Marvel’s Avengers Review

Plenty of games in the action-adventure scene have been fun, but only a few could boast of more engaging and endearing content as Marvel’s Avengers.

The game is filled with superhero flavor that meets the expectations of fans of the comic.

The single-player story mode is an interesting mix of emotion and thoughtful experience that brings a player into the most powerful character on the planet.

Yet, basking in all that power levels them to a human perspective.

The multiplayer mode is a non-stop action filled with various enemies to punch through without any questionable reason.

No doubt, both modes of the game work their way in spinning exciting gameplay; however, they don’t quite blend in plot and thus results in erratic gameplay, nonetheless fun.

The main menu presents gamers with the “Reassemble” campaign and its “Avengers Initiative” multiplayer mode.

While the former is much engaging and will require a player getting through to the final phase of the game to unlock all six heroes in the game, the latter is an unsatisfying repetitive and unrewarding campaign, although fun.

Not to be critical, one might as well just get on with the single-player mode, which has more depth in content and ignore the multiplayer altogether.

Down the Reassemble campaign, it proves to be fun superhero combat nourish with a great story plot, closely linked with co-op multiplayer that poorly effectuate satisfying game progression filled with needles missions that tend to serve merely as a medium of gaming indulgence.

Marvel’s Avenger combat is excellent. Its superhero power fantasy really would get a player hooked on.

Each character in the game possesses a unique style of attacks and abilities, and the switch between them is a nice perspective touch.

Stepping into the shoes of a new hero feels relatively intuitive; however, despite the difference in the various superhero character featured in the game, control functionality is similar, meaning a gamer, notwithstanding the hero character in his control, can immediately make effective use of the character.

The fights are a beauty light scenery clash, and players would have to be smart in combat, knowing when to dodge, break-in enemy guards, and plying on the character’s well crafted defensive ability.

Enemies in the game are mostly similar; players will, for most of their playing time, Knockdown hundreds of robots.

Marvel’s Avengers combat has depth, but sadly its missions don’t necessitate a player to take advantage of it.

For most of the run, a gamer can achieve mission tasks done with little use of combat skills.

At the end of the single-player campaign, the game transition players to its multiplayer-Avengers post-game Operation.

Players would be given a new mission, a reason to keep fighting A.I.M, and would be loaded with a series of tasks to complete.

Most of these missions, while been fun, becomes repetitive and wears thin on players as they too frequent are similar to each other.

These missions are required to be played online with three more players; however, the time to pair up with other players can be frustrating and worse as there isn’t any form of system communication to co-ordinate with the other players aside voice-chat.

Its open Threat Sector mission, which centers around players chasing down with optional waypoints for resources, does not indicate a particular gear the players should focus on, thus resulting in a mediocre teamwork play.

Even if there were better coordination to strengthen teamwork play, the game’s several missions still are below par as it is repetitive and content lacking.

Solace in the multiplayer mode is the gaming fun of going in a squad with friends and smashing waves of A.I.M antagonist.

Also, there is the constant reuse of scenario content and activities, which becomes an eyesore to players as you begin recognizing the same set of buildings, layouts in a supposedly different scene and mission.

Once you’ve seen one generic facility of the A.I.M automatically, you’ve seen all.

This can become exhausting and bore a player out overtime.

The game has technical snafus that interfere during gameplay.

Aside from graphic lag and unnecessary frame rate slowdowns, especially during combats, there are jerky cutscenes, wrong attack animation, and several bug related issues that can be meaninglessly distracting.

In a particular cutscene, Kamala’s hair was missing.

Some characters float around when they ought to be walking or flying; in other scenarios, the dialogue goes on repeatedly or cutouts suddenly out of the blue.

Marvel’s Avengers is a fun game despite its little stumbles.

Marvel’s Avengers Verdict

Marvel’s Avengers has an endearing superhero campaign.

Its combat system has a lot of depth with a blend of superhero flavor.

Storyplot is engaging and fits perfectly with the gameplay.

Characters are distinct.

However, its loot system is disappointing, and the game mission is often recycled.

Technical issues and bugs occur throughout the game and interfere with the fun.

Aside from these, Marvel’s Avenger is an entertaining action game.

It is disappointing that Crystal Dynamics squanders the potential of what could have been an excellent action-adventure game hits.
