  1. Still, it’s a solid rental and a good way to spend some time having a bit of fun. If you really want to kick ass as the Fantastic 4, go play Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.
  2. The game follows a simple beat 'em up formula that will keep you entertained for awhile, but it lacks so much of the depth and creativity that we expect from the comics and movies.
  3. If you would like to play as the Fantastic Four but in a good game, play Marvel's Ultimate Alliance.
  4. Really, with the Wii controller and nunchuck the game becomes even more tedious.
  5. A poorly put-together game that suffers from incompetent AI, terrible graphics, mistimed sound effects, repetitive level design, and button-smashing combat.
  6. It borrows so heavily from the format of "Marvel Ultimate Alliance" that you’ll likely be hard pressed to find anyone who won’t tell you to simply play that game instead. Considering all the bad movie games we’ve seen in the past year, saying that this is one of the worst should really mean something.

    There is a special level of Video Game Hell reserved for ROTSS. Simply by existing, it has made the world that much less fun. It's the videogame equivalent of watching your dog being run over, with worse production values.

    Passable graphics, strong effects, clunky interface. Will keep the young ones happy, group attacks are fun.

    Nice effects, but the game is really boring. Enemies come, you kill them, you move on until more enemies come.

    You guys below don't know how to rate a game. This was the most repetitive game i've ever played. Each level is identical! No new details or anything. The whole game is hurting endless waves of enemies. I mean they should've added a chase level with the surfer or something but nope! This was an awful game with even worse graphics! It was short too! It lasted like an hour! Expand
