    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.

    The Ms.-Marvel-centric campaign is almost worth the cover price alone. Deep hero customisation sets the stage for a strong online mode with plenty more to come. [Issue#180, p.67]

    Marvel’s Avengers is basically a high production value Marvel Ultimate Alliance style action RPG, built around the structure of a game like Destiny. This is a powerful combination, featuring spectacular action and endless possibilities, but developer Crystal Dynamics stumbles in their ambition. Therefore the game’s stability is horrendous (although the performance mode might help) and navigating its many options is unnecessarily convoluted. The future of Marvel’s Avengers does seem to shine bright though.

    Marvel’s Avengers has buried in it an excellent story and single-player experience. But all the good it does is overshadowed by technical issues and corporate greed. In its current state is more similar to a beta, rather than a fully polished AAA game. The main campaign of the game is truly delicious and is worth experiencing by every fan of action games. The several climaxes masterfully weaved into it manage to make you feel like a part of the Avengers. But even these moments cannot make me forget about the technical issues, and the sacrifices made to turn the game into a live service.

    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."

    While I enjoyed my time with the single-player campaign in Marvel’s Avengers–which surprised me with its warmth, fun, and energy–its multiplayer components haven’t quite come together just yet. As a game that revolves around assembling its team of iconic heroes, Marvel’s Avengers at this time still feels a bit at odds with itself. Granted, Crystal Dynamics clearly is planning to make this experience evolve over time with the introduction of new heroes and storylines into its online modes, so the Marvel’s Avengers a year from now may look very different than today. For now, we’ll have to see if these heroes can find a way to regroup to face the challenges ahead.

    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.

I cannot wait until moreI’m not super far into the campaign but I love what I’ve played up to this point. This game looks and feels amazing. I cannot wait until more characters are added, hopefully more missions in campaign too. Don’t listen to the negative feedback, check this game out. There is only one drawback and that keeps me from giving it a 10, and that is micro transactions. Now it appears so far that it’s only for cosmetic effects so that is at least better than what EA and 2K do. Expand

That isIt's a very fun game to play alone or with friends, but it's nowhere near "similar" games like Arkham Series or the newest Spiderman. That is because it's NOT a similar game. Avengers is a linear game with no open world and a bunch of bugs (which I'm not taking into account because they are fixable). It has no replayability and the story is barely there. Expand

    Avengers has a decent single player campaign but a couple hours in you start to see where the games as a service idea hurts it. Throughout theAvengers has a decent single player campaign but a couple hours in you start to see where the games as a service idea hurts it. Throughout the campaign there are glimpses of how great this game could of been but each time it is quickly overshadowed by the cut and paste boring mission structure. It seems as if they started making a story driven action game and midway through were mandated to change to a games a service. This game is book ended by some great missions but in the middle of the campaign it gets pretty bad. Avengers is also very buggy and has terrible frame rate for most of the game. I played on a pro with performance mode and it didn't seem to help. Expand

    Story is okay but moment to moment gameplay is very bland. Would rather play Anthem

    Bugs, bugs and more bugs! This game is unplayable sometimes! I don’t think it worth full price for now
