4.0 out of 5 stars Imperfect, but still a lot of fun. October 10, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marvel-ous! March 4, 2006
By Beaker
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
(...)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.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Marvel"ous [i know that is a stupid pun] September 30, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.


- Great graphics

- The wide arrange of Charcters to unlock


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

3.0 out of 5 stars Marvel Nemesis certainly is "Imperfect" September 27, 2005
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The Marvel characters have lived in the fighting game genre for some time thanks to Capcom's excellent "versus" games however the rights to Marvel's properties have passed hands to EA who tried their hands at their own Marvel fighter.

And the results are finally in... unfortunately, though they delivered a half decent game they're largely disappointing.

Story: 2/5

The game's store is pretty sparse, and pretty generic an made alien scientist named Roekel has been living on the Earth using humans for genetic experiments and creating super powered beings in the process in attempt to make the ultimate, or in this case "perfect" warrior. These beta versions if you will on the way to creating the perfect warrior are aptly named "The Imperfects." Makes sense I suppose. Anyway Roekel sends out his Imperfects as well as an army of alien warriors to trash New York City in search of his escaped "Perfect" warrior. Though the voice acting is good, the story isn't really thrilling or important or long but it serves its purpose and gives us an explanation of EA's new Imperfect characters which for the most part borrow powers from the Marvel heroes themselves and though some of them are cool they're not very inspired. Their origin movies are probably the most entertaining part of the story mode.

Gameplay: 2/5

Well this is why you're here and unfortunately this is the area of the game with the most issues. First off EA decided to do things a little different from its Capcom predecessors. The game is on a full 3D plain with completely destructible environments. The first problem is the lack of a lock on feature, making targeting and attacking your enemy an annoyance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awesome characters get bastardized October 7, 2005
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This game sucks. I bought it and I only put about two hours into over a two day period and I haven't played it since. If you're a huge Marvel fan (like me), it's fun to be able to play as your fav characters, but please, for the love of god, wait for it to be $20 until you buy it. It's NOT worth $40.
