You know a game is bad when playing as Iron Man is boring and Thor's Mjolnir is a basic hammer.

It broke my heart to see how frustrating and bad this game is. This game had so much potential and could have started a parallel MCU like universe for Marvel games. The only good part of the game was the first mission where the game switches all the avengers one by one and was actually well done. After that it was like Thanos snapped all the fun out of this game. The game is filled with generic robots, boring missions, 2-3 super-villains and similar looking labs and maps over and over again. The gameplay mainly involves punching stationary robots, standing in an area until Jarvis hacks the door or clearing the area out of the enemies. The dodge in this game is infuriating and doesn't work. The worst thing is the microtransaction and loot. The gear changes stat which you do not feel during gameplay, it doesn't changes how you look making it pretty useless since there is a button to just pick the best mods in your inventory, so you don't even bother checking what it does. The skill tree is so passive that you don't even care. All the costumes need to be paid with real cash. I am glad this kind of MTX filled game failed badly. I hope the rights to Marvel games are handed over to Insomniac or some other studio who will do the characters justice and truly open up a gaming Marvel Universe like Rocksteady did to Batman.

I don't really get the hate this game is getting. Probably because of its microtransactions and the fact that it is being grindy. But for me, from a point of view of a superhero fan, I enjoyed this game a lot. I only played the campaign mode and still trying to grind to unlock its abilities for each character. Yes, it's a bit grindy. But that's what a game is. A superhero game is. Although how I wish they added a split-screen multiplayer mode for this one. Overall, I love the characters, especially the campaign story.

Story wise it is interesting. You can only keep a limited amount of gear with most of it being the same rank and specs. Maps are repetitive unless the mission is character specific in the main storyline. I use a GEFORCE GTX 1050Ti however I still have to run the game graphics either on medium or low so that it can run smoothly. the loading screen sometimes takes up to 15 mins or more before I can access the main menu. If you'd like alternate skins you have to completing challenges until you have the required amount of resources to unlock what you want which could take forever.

The story is great. BUt the looter system should have not to be added.Just a story-driven game would have made it a huge sucess
