  • Summary: Marvel Nemesis delivers the definitive Super Hero videogame allowing gamers to play as and against the world's greatest Super Heroes. The game features Super Heroes from the Marvel Universe as well as a new set of characters created through collaboration with EA and top comic book industry talent. EA has called on the talent of top comic book writers and concept artists, such as Jae Lee, for Marvel character and game design as well as renowned artist, Paul Catling, among other industry talents, to create a new family of Super Heroes that will go face to face with an all-star line-up of Marvel characters for the ultimate showdown. Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects features more than a dozen fighters in fully interactive and destructible environments. Gamers have full control over the individual characters with each fighter having unique attributes and super powers that are true to their background adding more depth and fighting strategy to the game.

  1. Quotation forthcoming. [Dec 2005]
  2. The game doesn’t take advantage of the Nintendo DS hardware’s unique capabilities at all. It lacks presentable visuals and a decent combat engine as well.
  3. The unfortunates who decide to rent or buy this game will be stuck with nothing more than a filthy, horribly buggy port of an already middling game.
  4. 30
    Easily one of the worst Nintendo DS games released yet. It's extraordinarily hard to see any good in all this bad, and honestly I can't imagine any DS owner working their way through the progression because they're enjoying the clumsy, clunky, chunky, buggy, and most likely unfinished gameplay.
  5. I am sure there are some Gameboy Advance fighters out there that would earn a higher rating when compared side-by-side with this one. As it stands, this game is exactly what its title states, and nothing more: Imperfect.

    The game literally falls apart on gameplay. A flurry of punches, kicks, and concentrated moves are lost within the game's miserable reaction time and balance.
