Game lacks dimension and breaks fundamental gaming rules

Summary: Ultimately when asked I would recommend my friends spend their gaming dollars some where else. As for me, I already spent them so I will have to milk every ounce of fun out of the game. The game breaks a fundamental rule of games.
Summary: I'm not big on comic books. Not even when I was a kid did I enjoy any of the old Marvel superheroes, so this review will be purely on the game itself, rather than any ties I have to the comic book characters in it. Let me start by saying that I did not get this by choice.
Summary: Ive played all of the X-Men Legend games and loved those. But for some reason I cannot get into this one. Ive tried playing it about 5 times and get about 20 mins. into it and get so bored I have to turn it off.
Summary: If you've played X-Men Legends, then you already know exactly how you'll feel about this game, as it is basically the same with a new coat of paint. That is, if playing with all these Marvel characters is exciting for you, then go for it--but frankly, this is basically a glorified platform or arcade...
Summary: I'm both a big gamer and a comics geek, so I was pretty excited to play this game. It's not the worst thing I've ever played, but it's got several factors dragging it down into mediocrity. The gameplay itself is probably the worst.
Summary: I returned this after a night of play. This is a button-masher and the Marvel characters are really just skins for what are basically two character types: distance and melee. Playing as wolverine feels exactly like playing as the Thing. Playing as Iron Man feels exactly like playing as Spiderman.
