    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.

    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.

You will love the story if you are a Marvel fan. Great characters, and they are well written. Co-op is also very fun (play it with friends if you can, it will be a better experience). Gameplay feels great with every hero. I can't wait to play as Clint Burton (A.K.A Hawkeye). Expand

My advice? Ignore it and try the game for yourself!
    As a long time Marvel fan, I was excited when I heard Square Enix & Crystal Dynamics were teaming up to make this game, but slightly nervous as to what they would create. But, after the beta I was blown away at how much fun I had! And ever since the midnight release, I have not been able to put the game down!
    The story is fantastic, the multiplayer experience has been great apart from sometimes taking a few minutes to assemble a team w/ randoms but they're already working on that, each hero is unique and FUN to play. I went in planning to main Iron Man, but have found myself playing each character equally with plans to max them all instead! And as for the MTX, It's all cosmetic, and all easily earned in-game without the need to spend actual money, so why people are complaining (other than being mis-informed or making assumptions), I'll never understand. My real only complaint with this is the gear pieces do not change the appearance at all, but with all the different cosmetic items there are, I became less bothered by it.
    I'd also like to give a huge shoutout to the Crystal Dynamics team for not only listening to their players, but jumping on any issues found and communicating with everyone. It's a great thing to see these days!
    While I am not done with the story yet, I am already looking forward to the future of this game, the heroes we will see, and the villains we will face!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I had high hopes for this game, I really did. I was a big fan of Marvels Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2. The gameplay is boring and repetitive. You fight the same enemy type all the time and sometimes cant even hit them. The Loot system makes no sense. This is not like Destiny Borderlands or Diablo. You only get to fight three bosses, Wow. what a shame. I do think in time this game can be better but not now. It was clearly pushed out the door. You could have given us so many characters and interesting lore. Don't waste your time on this one. At least not now. Expand
