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.
Excerpt: The Marvel Trading Card Game is great. When you first start out, you can choose to play as either the villains or the heroes. Depending on your choice, you get to play through a different story. When you enter battle, you go through different phases. There’s the phase where you obtain resources by sacrificing a card to the resource pit, there’s the recruit phase, where you can recruit character cards, and the formation, battle, and recovery phases.
Excerpt: Upper Deck Entertainment, one of the more prominent purveyors of collectible trading-card games today, has teamed up with Konami to bring Upper Deck's Marvel-licensed TCG to the PlayStation Portable with the succinctly, if dryly, named Marvel Trading Card Game. It seems like a solid representation of Upper Deck's robust, flexible, and rather popular Vs. System Trading Card Game, and it packs a feature-rich online element that's already teeming with activity.
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
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: Questo Marvel Trading Card Game riesce a portare sulla vostra PSP i giochi di carte stile Versus System, comprendendo il fascino del mondo Marvel e tutte le funzionalità possibili per un gioco di carte (dallo scambio di elementi all'acquisto di altri e così via), ma risente di una realizzazione tecnica ingiustificatamente insufficiente e di caricamenti troppo frequenti e lunghi.
