    Although this game is good it does lack moves for character. after playing with all the Characters u eventualy realize that most of them are the same characters with the same move just in diferent skins. the story mode lacks creativity and the verses is great multy playing fun. one thing about the game that most people i think dont like is that it doesent have any origenal characters suchAlthough this game is good it does lack moves for character. after playing with all the Characters u eventualy realize that most of them are the same characters with the same move just in diferent skins. the story mode lacks creativity and the verses is great multy playing fun. one thing about the game that most people i think dont like is that it doesent have any origenal characters such as captian america the hulk the punisher mr fantastic ex.

    More than anything, this was a fun and zanny game with most focus on the multiplayer. The physics aren't the best, but seem to work. The characters each have abilities to climb, fly, run, swing, pick up certain objects depending on their strength, etc; and all this blending in the characters attitudes, such as such as the comedy of Spiderman, the Anger of Wolverine, etc. Although, mindMore than anything, this was a fun and zanny game with most focus on the multiplayer.

But, I really enjoyed bashing people up; chucking them of the edge; picking up a car, and exploding it in mid-air; climbing up walls; and even blowing stuff up with inferno.
    So, it is an average game when it comes to graphics, story and gameplay; but i quite enjoyed the overall simple and entertain battle system.

    When it comes to multiplayer, this game is a lot of fun. The bad part is the so called "story " mode. They really tried hard to make it look like it has a story, but it doesn't.. They did make some story cut-scenes , but its a really poor effort. The missions are simplistic, very random, and laughably stupid. Kill 20 enemies, and destroy 30 objects , and repeating these kind of idioticWhen it comes to multiplayer, this game is a lot of fun. The bad part is the so called "story " mode.

The missions are simplistic, very random, and laughably stupid. Kill 20 enemies, and destroy 30 objects , and repeating these kind of idiotic missions is not fun at all! The missions are played in the same arenas as in multiplayer, so other than unlocking some characters, there's no reason to torture yourself with it. There are some minor control problems, but nothing major, there"s a lot of extra marvel stuff for the fanboys, so altogether its an OK brawler game. Expand

  1. Instead of the epic battles I was looking forward to, I've spent much of my time with Nemesis playing one hero or another against a horde of pretty generic bad guys, most of which either don't pose any challenge (or variety) and a few of which seem fiendishly hard (but still don't offer any variety).
  2. Players who enjoy the lore surrounding the Marvel Universe, as well as those who are looking for something different in terms of beating others into submission should definitely give this game a look.
  3. It doesn't have a riveting story, it's easy, the gameplay is stale and shallow – in short, and it offers nothing new.
