Marvel’s Avengers May Need Some Saving - OnlySP

Marvel’s Avengers looks like it has more problems than just lackluster visuals. Hopefully a strong foundation will be enough for Crystal Dynamics to turn things around. Check out OnlySP’s thoughts on the game’s E3 demo.

I just hate how much this clearly apes the MCU. If they were going for the original 5 Avengers with the addition of Captain America that would’ve been fine, but Wasp is nowhere to be seen while Black Widow is prominently featured.

Of all the characters they could’ve chosen to be one of the first faces audiences see when this was unveiled, it just had to be a character who wasn’t even that big a member of the team in the comics but definitely was so in the movies.

I’d have more faith in it if it tried to go for its own style. I’m not against shoutouts here and there, but this clearly looks as close to a movie-tie in game as you could get without actually being one.

Yeah they should have went for the comic for more inspiration yet they are clearly influenced by the MCU despite them saying it's the games own thing.

They look like cheap knock offs of the MCU actors playing them in the films, I want them to look more like their comic counter parts. Like I saw Hank Pym in a trailer and he's old, like in the films, but in the comics he came before Scott Lang so why not have the original Avenger team but with Captain America since he didn't come until a few issues later

Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Ant Man, The Wasp

Then add Black Widow, Hawkeye, Quick Silver, Scarlet Witch, Hercules, Black Panther, Vision and Black Knight later

I hear what you are saying but I got two thoughts:

a) Ant Man and The Wasp would technically be really difficult. If they were in their own game, you could justify spending the development costs on it.

b) There's a whole generation that aren't even that aware of the comics. However, Captain America and Iron man, Thor and Hulk would be enough to bring the crowds.

Unfortunately, for me, I really dislike the way most of them look. Ironman and Hulk look fine, but the rest look awful. That does make an impact.

Making a game like this requires a massive budget and needs to meet massive expectations so I don't envy the developers.

I agree and would've preferred a more comic inspired interpretation but with how popular thd MCU movies are with the general public they are probably hoping to bring in some of those with recognition.

The character skins look dull and drab because, we get to buy the shiny fancy colourful ones on release, for the special price of a years worth of dlc. Come on nothing is free in the gaming multiverse. Fornite is free too guys. Lol. Tell that to the poor parents hows back accounts got emptied. What kind of games put enough micro transactions, to not just lower your bank balance, but clear it out. Free game for the win.

Should give it to Insomniac

One of the Directors of Uncharted Lost Legacy is directing this game. I have every trust in him that he will do right by this IP.

AshleeEmerson1807d ago

I guess I'm the outcast here because I love what I seen on the gameplay. The fighting seems fluid, the way they switch seems awesome and the scenes themselves seem constantly cinematic. Maybe I'll know for sure when they show direct footage but as of now even from the off screen for this, it looks pretty awesome me. Perhaps a bit shallow but...

PitbullMonster18h ago

Metin 1&2 and the Mount and Blade Series are the most known ones.

Crytek says hi.. learn before posting

Zeke6814h ago

"Crytek was founded by the Turkish-German brothers Cevat, Avni and Faruk Yerli in September 1999 in Coburg, Germany."

So he's right, Crysis games are not made IN Turkey... ;)

Terry_B10h ago

Just as Zeke mentioned..Crytek is a German developer, created by a turkish guy who lives there, was probably born there.

What I meant are games completely made in the country

What is turkish mythology? They don't have a mythology of their own. Unless we are going to rewrite history? Can someone fill us in on what mythology turkey has.

Eonjay8h ago(Edited 8h ago)

It could mean folklore, proverb, or even fairytale like Jack and the magic beanstalk. It could even just be lore about historical figures like you even see in American culture like Jonny Appleseed (a real person whose life story was mythologized).

S2Killinit8h ago

I see. I was thinking in terms of actual deities. But that makes sense.

You know that thing called google. (Or DuckDuckGo, depending on preference 😏)

Have a go at it sometime. It’s good

Time for a change. Football games haven't evolved much.

Cacabunga1d 18h ago

It’s tough when there is no competition

Abear211d 12h ago

There’s PES and now we’ll have FC25 and FIFA so yes, but it is no longer true, shit is about to get real!

Now if we only had two viable options for Basketball and American football we’d be on to something.
