That’s what the reviews said
Marvel’s Avengers produces mutually iconic heroes in one of the most passionate genres – Shacknews.
Marvel’s Avengers impresses with a healthy-written, dramatic campaign with drawing ideas. From a gameplay viewpoint, the battle is as exciting and gratifying as required from a title based on the superhero team.
Although the online live service aspect is overwhelmed by overly complex menus, systems, and matchmaking issues, there is still an enjoyable experience behind it. Crystal Dynamics, Square Enix, and Marvel’s Avengers deliver a perfect enough adaptation of an iconic world.
Marvel’s Avengers showed too much heart – and too much trouble – GameStar in testing
The rest of me thinks Marvel’s Avengers is a tedious mainstream product – even beyond microtransactions. It takes me as a player for a full sorst, hose level pose as a show and pushes my nose with affected enthusiasm to all the shops and spiral activation.
But where both sides agree: Marvel’s Avengers could be a better game if Crystal Dynamics relied more on its strengths rather than emulating significant trends.
The War Table is the place where you start various missions, either alone or with fellow players.
Decent multiplayer built into a great campaign – Polygon
Marvel’s Avengers performs an outstanding player action-adventure. If that’s all you’re watching for, particularly if you’re previously a fan of Ms.Marvel. I see the value in using it just for him. I was hesitant about whether the live service aspect could still take me to grind after loot or later story missions after reaching cover level. But now that I’ve overcome this initial hurdle is fun with friends to kill waves of enemies.
On a fine day, Marvel’s Avengers is a Marvel-style multiplayer game of a Dynasty Warrior, and if you’re in a good mood, it would be a decent way to spend some time, and we don’t know how that Team will proceed from here. It was a solid single-player outing for one of my favorite underrated superheroes on a good day.
