  1. Marvel Super Hero Squad’s popular source material, cute story, charming cut scenes, and fun personality will likely put the game into the hands of many young gamers and super hero fans. Most of those kids, however, will quickly tire of the game’s dreary gameplay, shoddy camera, unreliable controls and overall lack of depth and polish.
  2. A soulless advert for a crummy toyline. [Dec 2009, p.85]
  3. This simple superhero game is a super bore.
  4. Repetitive, clunky and predictable, Marvel Super Hero Squad is a button-mashing mess.
  5. 45
    Super Hero Squad does a lot of the small things right, sacrificing some larger issues that should have been addressed. It is backwards game design in that regard since mechanics like combat and super powers needed to be adjusted along with fixing the camera trailing the heroes.
  6. By-the-book cartoon tie-in, which ticks every box on the list of obvious mistakes. Some of them twice.
  7. Bitten by a radioactive librarian, MSHS developed a superhuman ability to suck the life from the room. [Winter 2009, p.63]
  8. The developer for Marvel Super Hero Squad is Blue Tongue Entertainment, who masterminded the superb Wii title de Blob. That pedigree makes the failure of Super Hero Squad all the more disappointing.
