GamesBeat: Avengers Initiative review

GamesBeat's Giancarlo Valdes: Avengers Initiative marks a new era of games based on Marvel Comics’ iconic brand of superheroes. Taking place in the same universe as the Avengers Alliance Facebook title, the episodic mobile series is a part of the company’s aggressive “push for quality.”

Heavily inspired by Chair Entertainment’s Infinity Blade, both in terms of one-on-one combat and branching exploration, the first chapter in Avengers Initiative features the Hulk, the always angry Mr. Hyde to Dr. Bruce Banner’s mild-mannered Jekyll. Unfortunately, not even the green-skinned hero is big enough to save this first chapter from mediocrity.

Just don’t tell him I said that. (Android, Avengers Initiative, iPad, iPhone) 67/100

Iron Hulk is the worst idea. And dumbest thing.

I played it, and was actually really sad that 2 minutes in it's so plainly a copy of Infinity Blade.
