    Very much potential, but Ben 10 Omniverse didn't manage to deliver. Exploration as well as combat is boring, and the plot is not relevant at all.

    It feels as though all creativity and imagination has been shunned during development, and the result is a load of lethargic combat with too many flaws and complete lack of the details and polish that define the best games of the genre.

    Has its charm, but is mainly plain boring.

    Ben 10: Omniverse is first and foremost a disappointing game, with a developer apparently afraid to take any gameplay or story risks with one of Cartoon Network's most popular franchises. The fun and colourful visual design does little to make up for the uninspired, brawler based gameplay and wholly uninteresting story.

    Ben 10: Omniverse falls into a lot of the same traps that lesser games in this genre do — lots of repetitive button-mashing gameplay, uninspired level design and clunky controls.
  6. A dull game that makes no use of the Wii U functionality. [Jan 2013, p.102]

    The combat is mind-numbing. [Feb 2013, p.77]

    Have people forgotten what a good game is? Have people forgotten the real definitions of words like "boring" and "bad"? Because Ben 10 Omniverse certainly isn't a bad game.

    You know what's an attribute people don't like to talk about this game? The visuals. They look pretty darn swell on an HD TV, and the decision to make it shaded makes it stand out and only helps the cartoony characters look even better than they really deserve to.

    If you are a fan of the Ben 10 series, there is plenty here. The combat, often called boring and repetitive, is fun. It's enjoyable to defeat Malaware's robot henchmen time after time because of the ensemble of aliens to play from. and each of Ben's aliens play completely differently with each containing at least 2 special attacks unique to that alien that has them doing something like sending a beam of electricity or speeding through multiple enemies in one shot

    Is this game perfect? No. But does it deserve all the hate it's getting? Certainly not. Ben 10 Omniverse did exactly what you expected a licensed cartoon network video game for the wii, xbox, ps3, etc to be, while also containing an element of fun and charm to it that makes it stand out a heck of a lot more than a lot of other games.

    If you like Ben 10 and/or simplistic yet fun brawlers, this title certainly is worth the time
