Sean Smith: "Despite the flaws, this remains an oddly thrilling experience at times, and one which does make you wish to persevere through the cel-shaded Silver-Age comics romp that underpins the sometimes-misfiring action. There is so much to love. A terrific, quick-fire multiplayer mode will give extra playability after the main campaign is dusted. The art style is so striking, the opening theme tune perhaps the jolliest, most kick-ass I have tapped a toe to since the legendary Dragon’s Dogma rock extravaganza. This is a highly entertaining new IP for Nintendo who should look to improve on its premise and the best and most satisfying moments for a sequel. Until then, enjoy and appreciate all that is good about this unique romp."
