2.0 out of 5 stars I should have known better! I really should! October 20, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
As with the vast majority of licensed titles pitched to the kids this one has major issues. As I am watching my son play I'm realizing that, once again, the camera is a problem. Why oh why can they not get this right? It seems a bit shaky and sometimes slow to react to changes and is frustrating as a result. The combat seems pretty good-my son had little problems picking up most of it. The music is good (theme from the show I think as I recognize it from hearing it on TV) in the theme area and just o.k. as you get into the game. There are missions or goals to accomplish so this makes it not feel exactly like an action oriented game but more almost quest like (keep in mind this is smaller scale made for kids questing). Nothing elaborate--just things you have to accomplish. My son enjoyed playing Hulk alot when Hulk is just fighting. That seems to be the problem--there isn't a lot of tutorials and he's only 9 (I think a good age for the game based on who probably watches the show) and he is a fairly experienced gamer at this point but he shut the game off in frustration twice already and we got it today. That is never a good sign. It was a reward for him so I am very bummed.

The characters are cute though and my son says they are like the show so that is a plus. He loves the show. I'm not an expert on animation and shading and all that so someone else would need to comment on that. My viewpoint is a mom who bought the eagerly anticipated game as a reward for accomplishing several goals for my son.

Along with this I bought my daughter the Bakugan game that came out today. I hope at least I chose well for one of them or I'm going to be very upset. I've already re-affirmed my promise to myself that I would no longer buy any licensed franchise stuff for kids from TV shows or Movies.

I will write 2 reviews: one as my 7-yr-old would describe it, one from me.
If you are <age 10: This game is really cool! You get to play over 21 characters from Marvel Comics and the Super Hero Squad show! The voices and personalities are from the cartoon. Each hero or villian has unique fighting skills and combos. Two people can play in story mode - this mode requires you to play as certain heroes to defeat the bad guys. Battle mode lets up to 4 people pick characters and fight each other in a ring. You can unlock different costumes, so you can be Iron Man or War Machine, Red or Green Hulk, and lots of other great heroes and villians! I got this at Christmas, and I am still playing it 3 months later. It is my favorite PS2 game.
For Adults: Remember when Nintendo and other games first went from 2D scrolling games to 3D, and how bad the 3D was? This game plays like it was designed in the late 1980's. Yes, the characters have unique fighting (Falcon and summon his pet Redwing for ranged attacks, everyone who should fly can fly in the game), but they all die just as easy. Thor should not be as weak as Hawkeye or an Aim agent. Yes, the additional costume unlocks adds to the characters. It makes sense for War Machine to be an alternate costume for Iron Man, and Red Hulk looks meaner, just like in the comics. But Loki is just Thor in a green costume (no Loki horns), and Enchantress is likewise just Storm in green, even though their powers should be completely different.
The camera angle focuses on Player 1, so Player 2 frequently disappears of the screen if you are too far away from each other, even though Player 2 is still fighting and getting hit. After a few seconds, player 2 will reapear at the center of the screen.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This game hates children. It really does. I truly believe the developers chortle with evil laughter whenever some hopeful hero-loving child convinces someone to buy this for them.

How does it hate your child? Well let's count. First of all the camera hates them. The camera flips back and forth randomly, making it almost impossible to fight or navigate (and then your hero dies). Secondly, the platforms hate them too. They disappear while you try to jump on them (and then your hero dies). Save points are far between, goals are ill-defined and poorly explained. Frequently my child thought the game had saved his progress, and it hadn't. You can't choose when to save, the game does it randomly. Did you save? No? Too bad kid, go replay those horrible levels again. It was often over an hour in between saves!

My child was so frustrated with this game he began to rant last night that he wanted to find whoever made this game, yell at them and then punch them in the face. I certainly understand his attitude. It feels like the game has been slapping him in the face every time he's tried to play it.

I'm usually someone who hates all-caps, but it really is warranted in this circumstance.

DON'T BUY THIS GAME!

4.0 out of 5 stars good kid game, needs to be a version for ps3 for my kids February 14, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My kids loved the game and so did I. The PS3 needs 4-player games like this so that families with kids can play. This is the reason I still buy games for the ps2.

3.0 out of 5 stars some fun, the two player is terrible October 27, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
this game is kind of fun, in one player mode. the characters are ok, they could have a wider range of "powers", though, like ultimate alliance. the animation is pretty good, the plot forgiveable, i suppose.

that being said, the two player aspect of this game is absolutely pathetic. the poor sap who is player two is often cut out of the screen and has to wait until player one finds player two, or player two reappers after waiting about seven seconds. then you're out of the picture again and hve to wait again. the way the camera angles work with the characters make it even harder, especially at times when going from one room to another, the switch is so fast you get turned around.

to sum it up, this game totally blows in two player mode. if that's what you're looking for, avoid this game like the friggin' plague.
