This is a fun game, pure and simple. I had a hard time putting it down. However, it does have some shortcomings.

This can easily be compared to Super Smash Brothers in that the controls are very simplistic. Once you know how to control one character, you can control them all. For those who like the easy fighters like Smash Bros, this is ideal. But this may easily turn off the tournament fighter purists who are used to every character being completely different.

The game can play very cheaply. You could be wiping the floors with your opponent. You could have him on the ropes for the entire match, but with a few well-placed background objects being thrown at you, you've lost. This can be very frustrating, especially in story mode.

Story mode can be frustrating at points, but it's the kind of game where if you have any persistence at all, eventually you *will* win. There's not much to do once you do win the story mode and have unlocked everything. It's verses mode from there on out, which really kills replay value.

The new characters, the imperfects, are all well and good. They're a bit too powerful compared to the normal Marvel characters. But once unlocked they can still be a kick to play as. But in any case, they could have easily been dropped in order to include more of the Marvel favorites.

For a Teen rated game, this is rather edgy. Sure there's no blood or gore. But not having blood doesn't mean that some finishing moves aren't severe. Wolverine slashes mercilessly at a prone victim on the ground. That's one of the lighter finishing moves. Paragon actually has an impaling move far worse than that. But because there's no blood, it only receives a Teen.

Language doesn't get downright foul.

(...)I love this game! It's not perfect but it is a heck of a lot of fun. The grapics are really good. The characters are done pretty well (except storm...i hate her in this game). The bonus movies you can unlock are pretty cool . I do agree that some different characters would have been better but hopefully a sequel will come out and blow this one away. All in all...get this game.

Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects is overall a great game for those who have been waiting for a game where you can be a variety of the your favorite superheroes and villains.

Graphics 9/10 Great cut scenes and overall great graphics

Sound 8/10 Good sound featuring voice overs and shocking sound effects

Control 8/10 Once you play the game the controls will come easy too you and are pretty simple

Story 7/10 A little odd..... still new instead of the "Good Guys save the world" storyline

Charcters 10/10 There are tons of playable characters never seen in games before. My favorites are Venom, Iron Man, Daredevil, and the new characters known as the Imperfects.

Pros:

- Great graphics

- The wide arrange of Charcters to unlock

Cons:

-there is not a wide range of new enemies {that aren't characters themselves}

I have to admire two things. One is the dedication to the characters which look great and are fun to play with, though a tad unbalanced. The other thing is the story mode which was a really cool, if flawed, idea.

I'll be first to admit it's not the greatest game play in the world, but it's a fighting game; usually you just beat up all of the other characters in sequence. Here you also fight minions like you would in a normal action title, though there are only a few enemy models and the fights generally just take place in the normal vs fighting arenas. Sometimes the attempt to be two different kinds of game can cause some frustration, for example with camera angles, but as fighting games go, it's one of the best attempts at single player play. They tried something new and it mostly works.

It would score a lot better except for a few problems. One, you basically have to have a memory card installed and beat the game in a certain sequence to get all the characters unlocked on the first try. That's pretty lame, especially if the memory card dies and you have to start over. Another odd thing, mine always saves twice instead of the one time after each match. That seems like a waste of read/writes to flash memory, but probably won't burn the thing out.

The biggest problem is that the fighting, while decent, is flawed. Characters with a projectile nearly always dominate. Also the way the "mutant power" bar and "Rage" are handled struck me as just a bit annoying/odd. They're sort of bonus bars that let you use mutant attacks or get bonuses for getting angry. All in all, it's a kind of sloppy fighter and a not stellar story mode, but if you can find it cheap, it's still a lot of fun. I'd recommend it despite its faults.

Marvel Nemesis was EA's turn to cash in on the Marvel superhero franchise. Spider-Man, Wolverine, Elektra, and many others go up against the Imperfects, a group of genetically-altered superhumans. There's also some kind of thinly scripted alien invasion story involved.

First, the good. Production values are spot on, with stylized artwork for the menus and good voice work. The Imperfects are an interesting bunch and each comes with a movie clip detailing their origin. Character models are nicely sculpted, although the camera is often too far away for you to notice.

Where Marvel Nemesis fails is that it's simply not much fun. This isn't Marvel vs. Capcom, it's a brawler/Powerstone hybrid. That in itself isn't a bad thing, but you have to work through an absolutely tedious story mode to unlock all the characters and extras. You'll waste time fighting wave after wave of generic alien enemies, only to reach ridiculously cheap bosses. The game's biased towards the Imperfects, who generally have wider-reaching and more damaging attacks. The AI isn't afraid to spam you with cheap shots when it gets the chance. Also littered across the stages are explosive background objects like oil drums and cars that can be picked up and thrown. They're useful but way too damaging, and can easily kill you when you're close to finishing a mission. Cue frustration.

Once story mode is finished, 2-player mode is supposed to be where the replay value lies. Only, there's not much to it. Not a lot of options to explore here. Levels aren't that interesting to play in, the simple controls don't hold much depth and strategy. Smash Bros. has strategy. This is closer to button-mashing.

Marvel Nemesis is a flawed game wrapped in very pretty packaging. Rent if you're absolutely curious, but there are better superhero titles to look into.
