  1. Accessible, with a great cast of villains, Fantastic Four is an entertaining ride into a comic book. The levels are a little short, and the game does have a few clipping problems that color an otherwise fun experience.
  2. Its easy to pick up and control and the bosses are varied and challenging.
  3. Fantastic 4 offers four characters, a repertoire of moves, and compelling level design that culminate in an engaging game. The production values are good, thanks in no small part to the authentic voice acting.
  4. It’s an old-fashioned beat ‘em up done right. The co-op play is excellent and even going solo can make for an entertaining time.
  5. Activision makes full use of the Marvel licence with a heavy dose of superhero action, nifty combos and plenty of unlockable goodies.
  6. A pretty decent game that isn't anything spectacular, but for fans of the movie and people that enjoy bash-em shoot-em type of games involving multiple players will definitely enjoy the game.
  7. A heavy hitter in the button-mashing genre and is well worth the purchase for young adults and children. A more advanced gamer would still get a belly full of enjoyment out of a rental.

    In what seems like a profoundly misguided step, four players can't play as the Fantastic Four. [Sept 2005, p.101]
  9. Fantastic Four didn't rock my world, but it easily avoided auto-sucking and turned out to be a pretty decent day's work.

    Pefect 2 player game that rivals the sports games. Perfect voice overs and looks from the movie itself. Nothing is left out as more then the Pefect 2 player game that rivals the sports games. Perfect voice overs and looks from the movie itself. Nothing is left out as more then the movie is brought to life from the archives of the FANTASTIC 4 and that is why i give it a Fantastic 10!
