Excerpt: I am what you would call a recovering CCG (Collectible Card Game) addict. What began with a few games of Magic: The Gathering soon exploded into an addiction to nearly every CCG on the market, from big names like Legend of the Five Rings and Star Wars CCG to smaller ones like Rage . While I’ve managed to kick that habit, it was replaced with an even more expensive one, video games.
Summary: Marvel Trading Card Game lets players assemble their own decks and take on different challenges to gain more cards based on legendary Marvel characters such as Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider and more.
Excerpt: There have been a lot of collectible card games (CCG) in the past 14 years and the ones most people are familiar with are franchises such as Pokemon, Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh!. These and other TCGs all have similar mechanics in how they are played, but are also different from each other in regards to things such as their relative levels of complexity and gameplay features. A relative new comer to the block of trading card games is the VS.
Conclusion: With its good implementation of the well-known Vs. System, Marvel Trading Card Game will make those who've already got a taste for TCGs quite happy, and it makes pretty good use of the Marvel license on top of that. It's a step up in sophistication from the Yu-Gi-Oh! games that Konami has been churning out for years, and the online component is surprisingly solid. Still, it's a shame that the game's depth gets in the way of its accessibility to a wider audience.
Pros: Good execution of vs system trading card game, Loads of great online options.
Cons: Not friendly to trading card game newcomers, Interface a challenge to decrypt.
Conclusion: Outnyttjad potential i alla snygga teckningar. Segt och inte helt användarvänligt, men stundtals spännande. Långa kampanjer och dessutom rejäla multiplayerlägen. Verkligen inte ett spel för alla och en rejäl inlärningströskel, men sedan ett kul strategiskt kortspel som är svårt att lägga ifrån sig.
Conclusion: “Marvel Trading Card Game” è una buona trasposizione videoludica dell’omonimo gioco di carte dedicato ai supereroi Marvel. Con maggiore cura nel comparto tecnico (caricamenti e sistemazione dei parametri delle carte a schermo) avrebbe potuto eccellere. Così, invece, resta “solo” un buon gioco. Esclusivamente per appassionati del genere.
