  1. The Story mode was a great idea that just fell short in its execution. The fighting was a little bit shallow, but it was still fun.
  2. A rather straightforward 3D brawler, with enemies materializing in a green haze and fairly begging to be dispatched with prejudice. [Oct 2005, p.55]
  3. Keep your expectations in check, and there's some fun in the mayhem. [Oct 2005, p.126]
  4. Faceless-cyborg-smashing melee battles are repetitive, uninspired, and glitchy. And with each story line presented in a series of minimissions averaging 3 to 4 minutes apiece, you spend a lot of your time switching characters and saving and loading instead of just playing the darn game. [Nov 2005, p.138]
  5. A fighting game that had all the makings of a truly stellar fighter but with so many flaws it manages to knock itself out before the fight even ends.
  6. A weak in the knees one button beat-em-up that has absolutely no teeth. The fighting engine is so watered down that only geeking Marvel fanboys will elicit any enjoyment out of spending any time with it.
  7. An odd visual style tops off a very poor title in a suitably poor manner, jumping between looking halfway decent and just plain nasty. An unbalanced and sorely broken mess. [Dec 2005, p.106]
