4.0 out of 5 stars Kids game only October 30, 2009
By K.hang
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay I see alot of bad reviews from adults who expect this game to be good, but this is a kids game, and any kid who played this game loves it. I bought it for my 5 year old son and it's one of his favorite game on the Wii. If you're an adult who's buying this game and are expecting a mature story/gameplay, than you should not buy this game, it's made for kids and should only be played by kids. I play this with my son and my only issue is the camera needs work, other than that it's an average kids game

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Kids Game! November 18, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My girls never really were big gamers, but my 2 1/2 year old son has become obsessed with gaming over the past month and a half. It is such a challenge to find games that he loves because he feels he needs to play what "daddy plays". As you can probably guess, him wanting to play mature games just isn't cutting it.

We had tried the typical cute games that were age appropriate for him and he was simply getting bored with them and showing no interest at all. He apparently was wanting something that fast paced and if they could shoot or had a sword then that was all the better.

About two weeks ago I heard about the Wii game, Marvel Super Hero Squad. Let me say that this game has went nonstop in our house for the past two weeks. My two year old loves every second of this game. Ofcouse he is just learning all the Super Hero's names. He already knew the typical: Batman, Spiderman, and Hulk but this has introduced him to a wide range of characters.

His favorite for battles is Magneto. It really isn't a great feeling when a 2 1/2 year old can kick you butt at a game. If you are wondering why he likes Magneto, well it is simply because he shoots and flies. So my son never lands his man on the ground and shoots at me non-stop until my character is defeated.

This is a fantastic, action packed game for any kid. With that being said, this is not a game that my husband would purchase for himself, but our son loves it! My 14 year old daughter did get a little bored with the ds version of this game but the layout is completely different. The Wii version has been a big hit!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game but you have to read the instructions October 22, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Good game but you have to read the instructions.
While I'm not the biggest fan of the subject matter, the game was a lot of fun and I was able to see past it. The story in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 or 2 was better .. but the game play was a little more fun in this.

The hardest part is learning the controls. Once you learn the basic structure of them, you can figure stuff out.

But you should learn the controls BEFORE you start game play. So practice in Battle mode first. Initially in Training mode of Battle mode, I was horrible. And I would rate myself as a pretty good Super Smash player. A is regular attack, B is ranged/other attack.

Here's the tricky part that I didn't get at first. Tapping forward (the direction you're facing) and hitting A or B does something completely different. Tapping away and hitting A or B does something completely different etc..

Example:
Iron Man
A is Punch
B is Repulsors. Both are pretty weak.
A and Tap Forward is charge/dash attack
A and Tap Backward is uppercut
B and Tap Forward is chest Beam attack... I forget what back does.

There's a combo attack. This part is a little annoying because involves nunchuck or wii-mote movement. And they're different for each character.

Iron Man
A, A, A, Nunchuck move = firing rockets from his chest
B, B, B, Wii-mote move = firing super beam
Other things happen if you do the punch combo and a wii-mote and vice versa.

Some characters require a different combo to activate things.. mainly because their moves take too long I think. This is all in the instructions, it just doesn't give a lot of details.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 3 year old LOVES it! (and so do I!) October 16, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is actually easy enough for my 3 year old! Thank goodness, since the Super Hero Squad is his favorite ANYTHING right now! In fact, he was unfortunately playing for 4 hours today, along with his dad! They go back and forth between the adventure mode and the battle mode. I have to admit that I've been known to play it as well, alone. =)
The adventure mode can be a little tricky, my 3 year old wouldn't have been able to figure it out on his own, but it has a 2 player option. just make sure to be player 1 when playing with a little one, player 1 has the power of where you go. The battle mode makes him laugh like crazy, since it's just hitting and shooting the other player like crazy! Oh, and some characters can fly, so that adds to the fun! I highly reccomend this game!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, fun for the kids but could be much better December 12, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Read some of the reviews on this game before buying [...], they pretty much nail it. This is a kids game that is a bit too tough for the 6-8 year old crowd. And probably a bit boring for the average >10 year old gamer. The one negative feature that I've read several times and now completely agree with is the camera movement during the Story portion. The camera seemingly acts on its own and changes the point of view in a very disruptive way making it difficult to follow your characters sometimes. I imagine this is even more difficult on a young gamer.

With that said, it is not a complete waste of time. There is a 4 person battle mode (a la Mortal Kombat) where Super Heroes beat up bad guys, bad guys beat bad guys or whatever you want. This can be very fun and each Super Hero has several outfits with different strengths.

In short, this game can't compare with the Lego franchise for young gamers. It does do a great job of introducing these characters to a whole new generation and my kids enjoy it when they finally get it in the console. Unfortunately, it is rarely their first choice.
