  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. Feels totally manufactured and formulaic. [Sept 2007, p.76]
  3. Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer could have been way more than it was. Only get this game if you are a true die-hard fan of the Fantastic 4, otherwise go find a used copy of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance to get your superhero fix on.
  4. The bland environments, boring stages, repetitive enemies, and easily exhausted powers make the Fantastic Four feel more like a fantastic chore or just a fantastic bore.
  5. In fact, it’s repetitive and (quickly) becomes boring. Regardless of the enemy, expect a lot of walking around, smashing, taking of elevators to the next floor, more walking around, and more smashing and more … well, you get the picture.
  6. Despite the few things done well in it, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer remains a bland, poorly-done game.
  7. The visuals are pretty lackluster for a 360 title, and while the characters themselves look nice, the environments are pretty bland and uninspired, much like the level design.
