2.0 out of 5 stars Certainly got the 'Imperfect' part right... October 6, 2005
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a long time Marvel Comics fan, and I must admit that I was definitely caught up in the hype surrounding Marvel Nemesis. After buying it on impulse and playing it for 2 days, I can sum the game up in one sentence:

Marven Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects is little more than a frustrating, unbalanced, and completely mindless button-masher.

Now, I'm not one of those people that gives a bad review because I fail to beat the game or a level a few times in a row. After slogging through most of the game's extremely frustrating story mode, I found little reason to continue near the end. The Story Mode starts out easily enough, putting you in the role of The Thing. Out of nowhere, alien ships attack and the Thing finds himself stuck on a completely destroyed bridge, with alien cyborgs teleporting in all around. And there's where the...'fun'...begins.

Marvel Nemesis has little going for it in terms of the fighting engine. With merely one attack button, your attacks are VERY limited, and hence the game is reduced to a simple button masher right off the bat. Every character has the same, generic 3-hit combo that launches the enemy either in the air or straight back, or nowhere as is the case with most of the battles. The other buttons are used for jumping, blocking, and for a grab technique that rarely connects. There are two modifier buttons, which are the Momentum button and Super button. The Momentum button allows your character to make use of their powers to move, whether it be through teleporting, flying, web-slinging, running or whatever the case may be. The momentum button used in conjunction with the attack button can sometimes produce a powerful attack.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
When the word came out about Marvel Nemesis I couldn't help to feel this could be a very promising Marvel game. Who wouldn't? The press release (yeah I should know better) made it look great: 15 or more playable heros from several camps not just one: Avengers, X men, Spiderman and the Thing. So far so good. The team EA put together to produce this game looked good on paper also.

Could this be the game that put some of my favorite Marvel comic heros to life on the screen with a good story line, clean graphics and player models, good sound and a great combat/fighting engine? NO. NO. NO. This is nothing but a brilliant marketing plan that made a few investors some money before the word got out that this game is terrible.

I honestly tried to give this game a chance. I tried it for several hours and it was the biggest disappointment in something that had all the potential to be a great title. If you feel like making a few snickering rich guys richer buy this game so they can take even more more money with them all the way to Switzerland while laughing that they duped you bad.

DO TRUST the reviews out there online. Most of them tell the truth about this game. But before bought it I found ONE review from what appeared to be an old schooler like me. He like me didn't want to spend countless hours memorizing key combos and moves. He wanted to get in the game to play as quickly as possible. He like me didn't want to comb through a player's guide for hours before starting. It made sense.

But heres the truth:

Graphics are horrible. What are these people smoking that give the graphics for this game 4.5 out of 5? From even the online mainstream reviewers.

Sound: Not bad

Playability: Worthless. Repeated scenes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not anywhere near as good as it should be October 11, 2005
By Jackal
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
There are so many reasons to dislike this game it's hard to pick just one.

I have to say up front how disappointed I was in this game, given that I'm a Marvel fan. What you've read in the other reviews is basically correct.

If you are a power gamer and are used to having combo moves in your fighting games you will hate this game. If you don't like combos and like a more simple fighting game with amazing graphics, you will like this game.

The divide I think from the reviews comes fromt he different kind of gamers out we have out there.

The things that annoyed me most about this game:

1- When you use your super power attack it does virtually no damage to the opponent. For example, as Storm I hit the computer with 6 lightning bolts in a row and barely did any damage at all. Yet if I go and pick up a barrel and throw it, it does 1/4th bar in a damage. That's broken.

2- One of the maps was bugged. It was the Human Torch defeat 20 enemies in 3minutes 30 seconds map. I defeated 20 enemies with over a minute left in time. The count read 20/20. Yet it didn't give a Victory for the defeat. Luckily there's more than one path to the end of the game, so I closed the Human Torch storyline first chance I got.

3- The game wouldn't be so bad if there were stamina power ups. If you use your super powers 6 times in a row you've used up all your stamina. Stamina comes back extremely slowly. So if you use up your super powers at the start, that's it for the match. It's horribly annoying to have an amazingly powerful super hero like Iron Man or Magneto and be forced to run around punching and throwing like any other fighting game. It's lame and could easily have been fixed by putting Stamina Powerups in the game.
