They models look better too. The game is still a while away so things will only improve. I'll be honest though I'm more interested in how long the single player will be and how good it'll be than character models.

The issue I think is the costumes. There's this uncanny valley problem where we've looked at Downey Jr., Hemsworth and the rest for 11 years so when suddenly the faces are changed, our brains reject it. Especially when they're wearing movie accurate costumes. They should have made the default costumes different from the movies. Total redesigns from the films, not just the faces, everything.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 did it right in going for a very comic book style. Some of the costumes have an MCU influence sure but they still feel very much their own thing. This Square game is trying too hard to look realistic and no matter what they do, it looks like people cosplaying as the MCU as you say.

Tedakin48d ago

Yeah as someone hilariously said a while back. It's like that scene in Spaceballs where they capture the stunt doubles. "These are not them!"

The issue is they’ve tried to look like films without going fully into it design wise

They shouldn’t have done it at all, but more their classic looks in the comics

Nitrowolf248d ago (Edited 48d ago )

Agreed. They tried to make to too close to the MCU versions when they could have gone more comic accurate. Though I feel the engine they are using may also be playing a part in how bad some of them look.
Either way, I'm not fond of the MCU look that they are going with.

At least they are offering Alternative skins that i'll probably prefer more

Happens when you read a book after watching the TV or movie version of it. I mean, who here has read The Witcher after playing the games, and when they visualize Geralt, they picture him from the game? I currently reading the Expanse novels and the descriptions of the characters are often different very different than the show, but i still see the actors who play them.

It isn't that the faces don't match the movie actors... it is that most characters don't even match the comic character portrayal. They come across as B-Movie actor roles simply pulling someone off the street and throwing them into a costume.

They still look generic. They look like one of the default create a character options. They just have a terrible lead artist

It's an easy fix, just run a mission 100 times to get that rare skin to unlock the good one OR buy some chests to open and unlock it sooner!

Watch them sell the previous designs as alternate costumes. Lol

Generic, poorly realized characters are one of Crystal Dynamics's biggest problems so I'm not surprised that this issue is carrying over to the Avenger's game.

I said this as its own comment, but this kinda ties into what you are saying I think. For me the characters don't have enough texture detail, they look too smooth, especially their faces.

There is something lacking in the game engine itself
