The combat is okay but there it doesn't seem to have a huge amount of depth and there's little in the way of interesting encounters. The Hulk in particular felt horrendously dull to play as. I was also disappointed by the lack of any sort of team-up attacks between the Avengers.


I *think* team up attacks are in - me and a mate seemed to do one when destroying one of the mech walker things on one of the simulation missions where he was Iron Man, I was Hulk and we both destroyed it with me ripping bits off and him slicing it with lasers.. but we're not sure how we did it so it could've even been a weird glitch as we'd both done individual finisher moves at times on weakened enemies but only that one time managed one together but it did look like a proper team up finisher.. We *think* it was from both of us pressing Y&B when prompted at the same time but again, might've been a fluke and we never managed to do another one.

Played the beta for 30 minutes and got to a bit with Hulk in the jungle. After spending five minutes jumping around trying to find a path, I deleted it off my hard drive.

Yeah, I played up until the end of the Hulk section and this pretty much sums up my feelings on it. My son (nearly 7) loved it though, so might be requested from Santa!

Honestly looks like this'll bomb like Anthem, expecting this to be dirt cheap by black Friday.

You say that, but it’ll sell 1m in the North-East of England alone and at least 1.1m worldwide.

No mid mission joining

The each person has their own difficulty sounds odd and hard to balance

So if someone drops out they get replaced with AI and that's that?

Although tbh I’m genuinely wondering if the 4 player missions are even going to get filled by humans. We’ll see, I suppose.
I do like the difficulty scaling mechanic, but not having humans join mid-mission is very odd. Even Anthem had that, I think.

I’m just worried how challenging things can be if AI can take over and Personal difficulty doesn’t screw grouos

From what I’ve seen, the AI is...well, they’re not joining Mensa anytime soon. But if they take the reins of a high level hero then they can still wreck.

Also apparently you can't have duplicate characters in missions, so when a new character comes out and people rush to buy their battle pass, only 1 in 4 will actually be able to play them at any one time. Why? Because strawberry float you, that's why.
