    Marvel’s Avengers is a well accomplished game and a must have for Marvel fans. All the characters are fleshed out in their personality and fighting styles and the campaign is a ride any fans of comic book movies will enjoy. I didn’t fully enjoy the combat in this game but I can get past that in order to enjoy the rest of the experience. I am sure they have left plenty of room to expand the game further with extra characters and missions to extended the longevity of the game.

    Marvel's Avengers is the best game to feel like a real avenger. Its history and gameplay make the game a very enjoyable experience for all superhero lovers.

    After a long time waiting, Marvel's Avengers arrives with a powerful campaign, well-constructed characters and the promise of a constantly evolving future.

    Marvel's Avengers is sprawling and spectacular, messy and bloated all at the same time. There's a surprisingly fun and lengthy campaign here, excellent writing and acting and some of the best superhero brawling in the business. It excels at allowing you to really feel like you're fighting alongside your favourite superheroes as you decimate enemies and destroy scenery, but it loses some of that swagger as it enters its online endgame. There's a half-baked gear system, convoluted menus and questlines and some technical issues that make fighting online feel a little rough around the edges at this point in time. However, with a couple of patches, with the right support down the line in terms of new heroes, costumes, bad guys and story beats, Crystal Dynamics could be on to a winner here. This is a properly solid start and a pleasant surprise.

    If Marvel's Avengers were an MCU movie, it'd be Age of Ultron. It's perfectly entertaining and well put together, with some great set-pieces, but it isn't necessarily one you're going to return to again and again.

    As a whole, the game is interesting, thanks to a (too?) complete customization system and complementary superheroes. On the other hand, the player often finds himself confronted with awkward choices and great redundancy synonymous with repetitive missions... Although Crystal Dynamics has, unlike BioWare with Anthem, avoided the trap of unbalanced loot, the game remains, as it is, simply attractive if not essential.

    Avengers would have been a great story-driven title but its Games as a Service elements completely destroy it. Steer well clear, at least until Achievements and progression are fixed. To date, Square and Crystal Dynamics haven’t even bothered to officially acknowledge the issues the game is facing. For shame.

The level of detail with how much is happening on screen at the same time is a technical feat. The campaign is the best story experienced I've ever played through ever. Most people complain about story when it comes to games, but I doubt any one can genuinely complain about this story. And the graphics are the best on console thus far even beating out Division, Anthem, and Red Dead. It seems that people didn't want to give this a chance because it's a live game, but people should get it for the story at least. If you enjoyed "Rise of the Tomb Raider", you will definitely more than enjoy The Avengers guaranteed. Expand

    Avengers delivers what it promises. The Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and what the uninitiated will see as aAvengers delivers what it promises. The Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and what the uninitiated will see as a tacked on new addition, Ms. Marvel.

    With excellent combat that is both rewarding and at times frustrating, even multiple attempts on failed sections can be fun as players learn the best way to handle a situation.

    The UI is clunky at times and slow loading, but the ability to play as ones favorite Avenger makes these quirks easy to overlook.
    The voice acting shines as some of the top names in the industry fill the shoes of well know and loved established voices. Travis Willingham, Laura Bailey, Nolan North and Troy Baker bring their best to the table.

    Fans of the MCU will return again and again even as the "End Game" becomes slightly repetitive. Think Destiny or Anthem Both great in their own right, but ideas are certainly borrowed from those two, and it's not hidden very well.

    Predictable plot and repetitive gameplay all tied together with bugs and glitches GALORE. It just seems they've copied the model from DestinyPredictable plot and repetitive gameplay all tied together with bugs and glitches GALORE. It just seems they've copied the model from Destiny and slapped an avengers skin on it. It just feels rushed and not true to the Avengers at all. And to top it all off there's no power differential between any of the characters.. I mean this as it doesn't matter who you play as it still takes the same number of hit to take down enemies regardless of who you play as. That's right, the Hulk has the same strength level of a 16 year old girl. Just disappointing Expand

    Don’t buy this trash. It’s just a lazy cash grab that is contributing to the downfall of gaming.
