    Crystal Dynamics could have done a few things better, but an impressive campaign and a lot of fan love make the title a successful adventure in the world of Marvel that I don't want to do without.

    Marvel's Avengers could have been a much better game if Crystal Dynamics had relied more on its own strengths instead of emulating mainstream trends.

    An excellent campaign diminished by the intrusion of the game’s multiplayer elements. Some peculiar bugs and sloppy proof-reading can pull you out of the experience but enjoyable combat and an excellent take on some Marvel staples make for an overall fun but grindy core gameplay loop.

    Every looter struggles in the early days, and it would be naive think a studio that's never made a game of this type before would nail it right out of the gate. That being said, it's already in way better shape than I ever expected it to be at launch, and, most critically, the combat — particularly in multiplayer — is an absolute blast. I'm hopeful, and I'll be sticking around to see where things go from here.

    A range of technical issues are holding it back at launch, but a combination of satisfying combat and likable characters has delivered the foundation of an excellent superhero game.

    As a standalone, single player adventure, Marvel’s Avengers is a great experience that is well worth it for major fans of the Marvel universe, Movies and all. However, the majority of endgame content suffers from repetitive and uninspired missions, making the progress from vigilante to superhero a boring task. Though the promise of free post-launch content for 2 years is enticing for even the most hardcore and dedicated Marvel fans.

    Avengers is aimed at the most naive Marvel fans willing to absolve their idols of all their sins for a chance to stand next to Captain America or Iron Man — even for just a minute. So yes, fans like Kamala Khan are the perfect target audience for this sort of drivel. Ironically, she’s also the central character of the story.

After 6 months it's still crashing on pc to desktop about once an hour even though my system can run 1080 on high rec specs. Lip syncing is an issue constantly which breaks immersion and often sound over laps causing audio chaos. Most game pads don't work with it but it's a gamepad game. The game is full of microtransactions. Loot boxes everywhere and crates with zero explanation. Very little makes sense. The story is often confusing and has holes. Everyone is ugly for no reason. The lead calls her father by his name and mentions she has a mother but never mentions her again like she doesn't matter but claims family is the most important thing so a mess. The game steals from every superior game including Spider-Man. The controls are sloppy and tank like and have no way to change in options. The game is made for consoles. Overall the story is trash. The menu system is clunky and janky and glitchy and busywork. You can't equip your upgrades so nothing matters. Same few robot enemies and the worse villains. No Spider-Man!!! Lots of static environments and walking sims. All combat is identical and revolves around smashing buttons. The weakest enemy can 1 shot hulk. Super repetitive.

    The good: the lead character Khan is fun. The campaign is fun enough and has some high points. It plays a little like a poor man's mass effect. When it runs it looks good but the environments / maps are shallow and often on rails and small. Sounds ok. Can be fun to play.

    Summary: The single player should have been a polished 20 paid game with free to play mp. Overall def play it if you like aaa and to a much lesser extent the avengers as at times it seems like that franchise but like a cheap knock off. If you pay 10 it's good value. The worse part is we won't get another games becasue of this. These wonderful characters deserved so much better. It's all just so disappointing and insidious. 5/10 for fans. A missed opportunity. 4/10 for all others as it's a bad game pretending to be average.
