  1. The Story mode was a great idea that just fell short in its execution. The fighting was a little bit shallow, but it was still fun.
  2. A lifetime's work of demolition awaits you since nearly everything is destructible in Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects. Camera and detection are sometimes issues, but this was kind of expected due to the gameplay style.
  3. They attempted something risky and for the most part pulled it off well. I would have liked to see bigger levels.

This game should have been left a straight up Characters are fun to play but story mode levels are ridiculous and obviously tacked-on. This game should have been left a straight up fighter. For the inevitable sequel, I hope they concentrate more on versus mode and eliminate story mode entirely. Full Review »
