So it’s been a trip for this game but the beta is finally out and over the weekend I got to sit down and try it. We get to play the opening we see during all the trailers, which gives us a nice round test and feel for our classic heroes abilities while getting an additional chapter where we get to experiment with Ms. Marvel’s gameplay. The beta consists also of 2 boss fights and some co-op gameplay.
First, I’m not spoiling the story but I can say it’s pretty decent from what I’ve seen and doesn’t feel too much like any of the movies. Not the greatest of stories, but enough to stand on it’s own. As many I’m sure have heard, Hulk steals the show and was by far the most fun character we got to play as; I’m going as far to say as it’s the best feeling Hulk I’ve played in a game. I was really disappointed in Iron Man’s gameplay which felt bland and limited amongst a roster of diverse heroes. Boss combat is solid and even epic at key points with some surprising villains to fight.
The voice actors are really good and visually the game looks damn good although there were a few glitches later on. Honestly, A-Day ran as fine as a Swiss Watch (pardon the old expression) but the jungle section I was hit with a few visual glitches and some really lag pitfalls that got me killed. There are loot crates that have gear to make you stronger but so far all that seems available for microtransaction is purely cosmetic, although the threat is certainly there.
In the end, the beta was fun and the game was fun but there was nothing outright spectacular to me. There’s plenty to hook a comic fan and the game offers plenty of fun fights but I can see the game feeling rather repetitive quickly and unless the story is of Marvel’s Spider-man (PS4) caliber, I can’t seeing it be more than solid or good at the best. I’m still glad I got to enjoy it and I recommend giving it a try. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
