  1. It's hard to play, but if you like the tabletop version of the game you'll enjoy having this one on the go.

    Marvel Trading Card Game's voluminous stack of cryptic rules, absolutely brutal learning curve, and terrible in-game tutorial make it virtually impossible to play. [Mar. 2007, p.87]

    The problem with Marvel Trading Card Game isn’t the gameplay. Once you’ve figured everything out, it does a decent job mimicking the real thing. But it requires a lot of patience to get comfortable with the game and you’ll be fighting the interface every step of the way.

Instead of adapting a card game to take advantage of a console they tried to replicate the physical card play experience on a console. (Turn cards sideways on the screen to exhaust them? Really?!) Solitaire on Windows did a better job of adapting play mechanics. Stay away. Full Review »

The only major flaw is the terrible tutorial and steep learning curve. if you either love CCG games or the Marvel Universe this is practically a must-buy, others should bump this down to a 6 or 7.
