I don't know where Hulk: Ultimate Destruction fits into your marvel's game list, but I thought that one was great.

Don't entirely disagree with you, though I liked THOR and DAREDEVIL a lot more than you did.

Personally I'd come up with a 4th level, b/c SPIDEY 3 even with all the hate it receives from fans (I don't think it's that bad myself) is infinitely better than the '90s Captain America, the Dolph Lundgren Punisher and Ghost Rider.


What system did the Daredevil game your talking about come out on? I thought they canceled the PS2 version. So which system?

I think I'd have to disagree on your opinion of the Thomas Jane Punisher. Otherwise, carry on.

The extended edition of it was better imo.

It didn't. They're talking about the movies.

Just because Walmart is the number #1 retail store in America doesn't mean I'm going to shop there and not expect to get shit. Frankly anyone that bases their buying power solely off reviews is an idiot. Try it out and form your own opinion of it. I've played and enjoyed plenty of games that the high and mighty IGN has rated lower.

And I'll note this again, I'm not saying this game is going to be good but basing a preorder cancellation on IGN is just stupid.

It's a shame that the game isn't just unabashedly awesome, but anyone who was already excited for the game and had realistic expectations shouldn't be dissuaded. Despite the big 5.0 and some whining about trashing art pieces (who cares?), it still looks fun and easy to me.


This. The Arkham Asylum like combat intrigues me and I can't believe the game is getting bashed for destroying art work. I guess if you are a HARDCORE Cap fan, maybe that's out of character for him. But come on, it's a video game!

i don't really care for reviews much, but the gameplay looks right up my alley...arkham assylum style combat, buch of flippy platforming, and shield throwing...i've spent $40 on worse

ordered it today, going to see if the release date shipping will happen this late into the preorders, amazon says "want it tomorrow? order it now!" so we'll see how that works

This quote from the IGN review in interesting:

"But Captain America is passable, and the combat is surprisingly varied and well executed."

As I understand it, the combat is the vast majority of the game and the platforming no more guided than games like Enslaved or Uncharted.

Also, Wayforward is a great developer. While I expect this game will garner lukewarm reviews, I'm willing to bet it'll be pretty good, especially for those who like brawlers.

I've got credit so I'm in.

I played through about halfway through my review copy last night. It definitely has a charm to it and the combat is decent enough. There's a bit more variety than I was expecting, but I'm at the point where it's starting to drag for me. A 5 is definitely underselling the experience, especially for IGN's 7 (or is it 8 now?) to 10 scoring range.

The platforming stuff is pretty decent, though it's more like an extension of walking than anything else. I've spent more time picking up collectibles than anything else, which has a weird allure for me. I've enjoyed exploring the areas collecting everything in sight.

The graphics are definitely getting a bad shake from IGN too, but they're decent enough. Really, they're just uneven - some parts look great, others terrible. The particle effects in particular look pretty poor, and there's some slowdown when a bunch of guys are on the screen, so that's the worst of it.

Overall, it's just a mindless game. It has a certain charm to it, but there's been nothing special about the experience thus far. IGN is right about one thing - the game is short. Like I said, I'm about halfway and I've probably played for around 3 hours. I believe there are some extra modes outside of the story, plus extra difficulty levels that alter your life bar (no more auto-recharge) and such, but I still need to check back in on that stuff because my memory is a bit fuzzy.

As for the topic at hand, waiting on a price drop wouldn't be the worst idea in the world, especially if you have a backlog.
