MTB - Marvel Heroes Review

MTB - Marvel Heroes doesn’t give you the feeling of being a Marvel hero until about half-way through the game. After several stages of tearing through minions with your heroic powers, the moment will come when the endlessly respawning mobs seem like their numbers might actually overpower you. As your energy drains and it seems like you might have to pop a health-pack, that’s when Iron Man, Spider-Man, or the Hulk shows up and together you plow through the masses arrayed against you. Finally, you feels like a member of the Marvel Universe, where heroes are tested and ally together for the greater good. Those moments when you and actual Marvel heroes like Captain America, Wolverine, or Rocket Raccoon are able to work together to defeat a group of henchmen or rampaging supervillain are when you understand what it means to be part of the Avengers or the X-Men. The problem is that those moments are fleeting, and don’t happen organically until you’ve played for a while. (Marvel Heroes, PC) 3.5/5
