    It’s a great-looking and sounding game, but one that definitely needs some fine-tuning with the loading and quality of life issues that hamper the experience. Still, the good far outweighs the bad, and Marvel’s Avengers ends up being one of the best superhero experiences ever put in a video game.

    It would be hard to recommend Marvel’s Avengers to anybody who is looking for a rich multiplayer experience. Despite being a live-service game, this is no Destiny. But Destiny was also pretty sparse when it first came out. There could be a lot of quality content in the game’s future, and it does seem that the developers want players to stick around for a while. There is a slew of post-launch content planned, after all. Spider-Man, who will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, isn’t even due out until 2021. It is difficult to imagine what is meant to keep players grinding from now until then. The game is amazing for a weekend, but for several months? For the moment, it seems unlikely. Hopefully that will change.

    For all of my criticisms, Marvel’s Avengers is still a game I can’t wait to get back to playing. While there’s a lot of work to do, it gets one main thing right: it’s fun to be an Avenger. Crystal Dynamics captured this incredible feeling of being a superhero and distilled it into a digital environment. Combat is deep and nuanced, with far more complexities and character than your traditional superhero brawler. Right now, Marvel’s Avengers is a bit rough around the edges, but “good isn’t a thing you are. It’s a thing you do.” If Crystal Dynamics can smooth performance and squash bugs, as well as build out a more compelling endgame experience, it has a lot of potential to be one of the most memorable and replayable loot brawlers of this generation and next.

    Marvel’s Avengers is both a fantastic story and a dead-average grind for meaningless loot. When everything comes together, it’s a brilliant power fantasy with heart and a true passion for its source material. Those moments are fleeting though, held back by a range of technical issues, shockingly sloppy design, and no solid idea of what kind of game it really wants to be. Some assembly, definitely required.

    As it stands now, the campaign is great, and playing as each of the Avengers is fun, but the game just offers too little post-campaign content to warrant continued play. The performance issues are just unacceptable for a AAA game of this caliber. It's clear that this game should have released later in the year or delayed for another year. It really feels like this is yet another game shoved out the door while saying, "We'll fix it later."

    Marvel's Avengers' campaign is fun and endearing, but the loot-based post-game meant to be the meat of this meal is unrewarding and overly repetitive.

    There is nothing heroic in Marvel’s Avengers, a game that gives the feeling of a mobile title that invades our living room under the "AAA" budget hood. The thing that saddens the most is the sacrifice of Deus Ex’s third installment in order for this microtransaction fest to be released.

Lots of hate for cosmetic optional microtransactions that can all be earned in game and because the first trailer had character models that looked off. Who cares if the gear doesn't change your appearance. It didn't in Marvel Heroes Omega and it won't in Godfall either. Story is great, gameplay is solid and a lot more in depth than the haters say. This game has potential to do well for years to come. Expand

    Spectacular graphics and awesome combat are weighed against a complicated menu system and questionable micro-transactions. Still, Avengers isSpectacular graphics and awesome combat are weighed against a complicated menu system and questionable micro-transactions. Still, Avengers is mostly a joy for any true Marvel fan, with a terrific campaign and potentially exciting online aspects - although tbh I was only able to play with another person once in my week of having the game in hand. With regard to the haters, I truly went into this game with neutral expectations, and honestly the hate this game is generating is entirely unfounded. Like, for real - Avengers is a feast for the eyes and a big challenge for even the most diehard gamer. Yes, it gets repetitive. So does Destiny. Yes, it is quite hard at times. So is Dark Souls. Yes, it is not for gaming novices who are only able to master a single character at a time - if you don’t know your controller like the back of your hand, Avengers will make you want to put a hole through your TV. It is often very DIFFICULT. But when you find yourself looking at the too-long load screen too often, it’s simply a matter of having to change your strategy rather than cause for crying the game is broken. Occasional bugs are no big deal (I guess I’m not that nitpicky) with a game this size (there is A LOT to do), and nothing that made it unplayable or that can’t be fixed with a patch. If you love breathtaking graphics and stellar, lightning fast combat - Avengers is a solid addition to your catalog. Not mad about it. Expand

Just think if they had made this a linear game with hub areas like another Square product FFVII Remake, or say they decided to go open world like Insomniac’s Spider-Man.
    The Avengers deserved a better game than the bad level design, repetitive mission slogs, unsatisfying loot, loose and boring gameplay, and a bevy of micro-transactions. I mean hardly any bosses in the entire 12 hour-ish campaign? Maybe they find a way to make this game better in 2 years after adding a ton of content and refining their systems, but right now this is a shining example of the worst AAA video games has to offer in 2020.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Le doy 1 por no darle un 0 a MARVEL. Es un despropósito y un juego muy normal tirando malo. Menos mal que lo han dejado antes. Siendo muy fan de MARVEL como soy la experiencia de juego no me ha gustado nada. Expand
