  1. Still, it’s a solid rental and a good way to spend some time having a bit of fun. If you really want to kick ass as the Fantastic 4, go play Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.
  2. It would be nice to play as each character in a Gauntlet-style format, but the lack of distinctive abilities for each of the four characters puts the kibosh on that dream. One could surmise that this game was doomed from the start.
  3. The whole game looks like it was hastily moulded out of plasticine. [Sept 2007, p.70]
  4. The Nintendo DS rendition of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is a short collection of generic levels that hardly relate to the movie at all.
  5. 35
    Apart from the energetic musical score, there's nothing good about the Nintendo DS game. This is simply shelf fodder, the game grandparents will blindly buy for Little Timmy because the parents took him to see the movie.
  6. If you need a comic-book, movie-license game fix look elsewhere. I beg you. [Aug 2007, p.83]
  7. 10
    There's no reason for you to ever play this waste of plastic. Avoid it at all costs.

    This is one of the worst games I've ever played. The story is boring, the graqphics are bad even for the DS but the gameplay isthe worst part of all. You play through a level using one of the four characters where enemies give you a cheap death and the character's abilities are stupid. After dying several times because of the high difficulty (not because of great game design but because enemies are terrible and gameplay is terrible) you get to a boss section when you use a vehicle in the way of a side-scrolling shooter. This adds a whole new meaning to BUTTON MASH and is extremely difficult. Don't ever get this game! Expand

    Very disappointing. Poor graphics, difficult to control-unforgiving. The story line is uninteresting. Just all around, not much fun. Your $ is better spent on a different game. Expand
