Powerup Heroes

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Like many, I have had my share of superhero fantasies. It seems like a lot of effort to try and save the world, however, and I have been more than happy to enjoy the fantasy through my gaming experiences. Ubisoft's PowerUp Heroes tries to get the player a little more involved in these fantasies, casting you in the role of Earth's savior and giving you an awesome array of powers to do it. It looks like a game made for kids and, in a lot of ways, it definitely is.

PowerUp Heroes

True achievements

  • Conclusion: Pros: Great Kinect Implementation Fun Powers and Gestures Tons of Unlockable Costumes / Powers Cons: Way too short for a full retail title Multiplayer Community is Dead XP System poorly implemeted Summary: PowerUp Heroes is a great title you'll have a lot of fun with, but be aware that it's a bright flame that burns quickly. This would have been an awesome XBLA title, but I can't recommend it at full retail price.

PowerUp Heroes Review

VideoGamer.com
7 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Super heroes are cool. That's one of the things that makes films like Iron Man and Thor so much fun - it's great to have a character who's so powerful yet at the same time incredibly charismatic. Ubisoft's Power Up Heroes for Kinect might give the impression that it turns you (well, your Xbox 360 Avatar) into someone on a par with Tony Stark, but the clumsy and broken fighting on offer ends up making you feel like the broken Samuel L Jackson from Unbreakable.

Kinect fighter has players mimick aggressive motions.

Common Sense Media
6 February 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that PowerUp Heroes is a relatively mild fighting game for kids that requires the Xbox 360 Kinect sensor. Battles see players kicking, punching, and moving their arms and bodies in specific ways to carry out fantastical energy attacks. The bloodless action is tame compared to fighting games geared for older audiences, but the act of physically striking out creates a more immersive experience and could make some players feel more aggressive.

PowerUp Heroes

BluRay Authority
8 January 2012
  • Excerpt: So you want to be a superhero? All you need is PowerUp Heroes, as this is the closest you can get to superpowers without a cape. You step into the shoes of…yourself to battle the forces of darkness. That’s right, you play as yourself or at least as the X-Box Live avatar you created to represent yourself. You are tasked with carrying on an alien legacy of justice, doling out beatings to the bad guys one after another.

PowerUp Heroes Review

DailyGame
13 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The premise of PowerUp Heroes is simple: your Xbox Avatar is an unassuming warrior chosen Green Lantern-style by a dying guardian. After giving you a gem that allows you to absorb the “power suits” worn by enemies you defeat, you’re tasked with saving Earth from an evil army led by the robot Malignance.

  • Excerpt: The best way I can think of describing PowerUp Heroes is a Street Fighter game mixed with Mega-Man on the Kinect. You might be wondering what I am talking about. So let me try and untangled all of that. This is a fighting game where your Xbox 360 Avatar gets amazing powers. You fight other people or computer controlled characters. Many of the moves remind me of Street Fighter. After you defeat an opponent you get the powers from their suit.

Power-Up Heroes Review

GameZone
12 November 2011
  • Excerpt: There’s a certain fascination to being a superhero.  Hell, when I was a kid, I know that’s all I was thinking of, gaining electrical powers or the ability to fly at top speeds (with a skull made out of metal, so I wouldn’t damage my head, obviously).  In fact, to this day and age, I still daydream about kicking someone’s ass with special powers, especially if they do something like cutting me off in traffic or whatever.
