Guardians of the Galaxy: Episode 4 - Who Needs You Review
Penultimate episodes, when executed well, can be the unsung heroes of an inconsistent season. Their job is to lead into the season finale, and manage to keep the excitement high yet manageable, all without prematurely ending all the individual story threads that the season was busy weaving together.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Episode 2 - Under Pressure Review
Hopefully, Under Pressure is just a momentary blip in a great series rather than a signal of rocky storytelling to come. Given their reign as the all around favorites of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would be a shame for other stories featuring this dynamic cast to simply be regulated to “just ok” status.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Lego Marvel Super Heroes may not only be the best Lego game, but one of the best super hero games. With an insanely large cast of characters and some of the funniest writing I’ve seen this year, Lego Marvel is incredibly entertaining and some of the most fun I’ve had with a game this year. I’ve never played a game that consistently made me feel good as I played it and never left me bored after the ten hour story. This is a game that I just want to keep diving into and absorb as much out of it as I can. I had a feeling I would enjoy this game, and maybe it just came at the right time of the year, but I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to. With an industry full of dark and brooding violent games, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is an amazing palette cleanser and an extremely fun time.
If it can hold your interest long enough, and if you are enough of a fan of the action RPG to overlook its low points, there is an enormous amount of free content to take advantage of. With up to three characters earned through the game, and a story that took me about 14 hours to play, there is enough to keep you busy but necessarily entertained the whole way through.
Marvel vs. Capcom Origins
Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is an acceptable package. While Iron Galaxy did a decent job updating these games in terms of visuals and online play, they couldn’t change the basic gameplay. One of the games included in this package is fun to play and the other is pretty poor. It’s not the worst HD remake you could buy, but there are just too many other ones to make this a must buy.
The Hulk is a game that definitely does a better job of recreating a summer blockbuster into a pretty good game. There are just some problems in the game that holds it back from being anything special. The game does look great and it plays good too, but there is just nothing in this game that excites me. I would definitely recommend this as a rental and a purchase for fans of the comic books!
