  1. A solid brawler with a nice selection of new and familiar characters. It sports a great deal of interactivity with the environment, and gives a number of fighting styles to work with.

    A rather straightforward 3D brawler, with enemies materializing in a green haze and fairly begging to be dispatched with prejudice. [Oct 2005, p.55]

    A pretty average beat 'em up. There are some annoying control and camera issues. And the imperfects? Boring! [Nov 2005]
  4. It doesn't have a riveting story, it's easy, the gameplay is stale and shallow – in short, and it offers nothing new.
  5. A good-looking game that should've focused on one thing above all others. It might've been a good four-player arena combat game; it could've done all right as a mission-based beat-'em-up; and it's just barely possible that this might've worked as a 3D platformer starring Marvel's characters. As a game that tries to be all of those things at once, it's about as fun as gargling mayonnaise.
  6. The area where the gameplay lacks is the variety on moves, combos, and just providing ways to keep gamers interested after the smoke and mirrors of the visuals wear off.

    With its horrible looks, non-existent gameplay and shallow controls, every possible effort should be made to avoid this. [Dec 2005, p.111]

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. El mejor juego que ha concebido la industria, ¿motivos?, mera nostalgia, además de eso, contiene mecánicas de combate que no he visto en ningún título reciente (lanzar objetos que estallan, lanzar fuera del escenario a los rivales, desbloquear personajes al compás de tus victorias, escenarios indestructibles, cada personaje posee diferente fuerza (esto influye en los objetos que puede levantar y el impacto de sus golpes) y un gran etcétera,
    definitivamente uno de los títulos de la infancia que más horas de diversión me proporcionó.

Pour ma part je n’ai jouer que une ou deux fois le mode histoire ! La ou le jeux prend vie est vraiment dans les combats versus ! J’adore le fait de pouvoir prendre beaucoup d’objets dans l’arène pour te battre ! Les personnages sont insanes et les attaques spéciales sont juste parfaites ! Je crois avoir passer au moins 50 heures à jouer des versus entre amis ! Je recommande ! Expand

    More than anything, this was a fun and zanny game with most focus on the multiplayer. The physics aren't the best, but seem to work. TheMore than anything, this was a fun and zanny game with most focus on the multiplayer. The physics aren't the best, but seem to work. The characters each have abilities to climb, fly, run, swing, pick up certain objects depending on their strength, etc; and all this blending in the characters attitudes, such as such as the comedy of Spiderman, the Anger of Wolverine, etc. Although, mind you, the sound acting was pretty bad. But, I really enjoyed bashing people up; chucking them of the edge; picking up a car, and exploding it in mid-air; climbing up walls; and even blowing stuff up with inferno.
    So, it is an average game when it comes to graphics, story and gameplay; but i quite enjoyed the overall simple and entertain battle system.

    Nice job EA.. The physics are tp notch with a random punches sending an enemy flying into the air and bouncing off everything and how when Nice job EA.. The physics are tp notch with a random punches sending an enemy flying into the air and bouncing off everything and how when you throw a barrel at someone its totally realistic when they catch it before it gets near them. The characters are great to play as too! I love playing a fighting game where everyone plays like one other character (this case Spiderman) and when ranged attacks dominate you and can get you a cheap win or get a cheap loss because they keep using range attacks is no frustrating whatsoever! Which makes those melee fighters SO MUCH FUN TO USE. Especially Elecktra. The campaign is so dry I love it! And the new characters aren't rip-offs of other Marvel characters! Just becuase Johnny Ohm has the same exact powers as Electro and Solara is the same as Johnny Storm so what? Sure the camera is annoying all the time. Sure the multi-player is only fun for alittle while. Sure its not that fun to begin with and the graphics (especially the enviroments) are kinda bland but in all seriousness EA had a good concept here and they botched it so horribly. Avoid this game at all costs. Expand

    What a piece of crap! Where's the gameplay? I heard Marvel was excited about this deal because they were going to get to keep the IP. What a piece of crap! Where's the gameplay?
