Marvel Heroes, by Gazillion Entertainment is shaping up quite nicely. Here’s the debut gameplay trailer for your viewing pleasure.
Now let’s analyze the trailer with what we already know. This is clearly an action RPG, and will include randomized loot, and dungeon/combat areas. The action will be viewed with an overhead camera, and from the trailer it sure looks like Doctor Doom is going to be the main antagonist. The story will obviously feature the Cosmic Cube in some fashion, and playable characters we know of thus far include Captain America, Spider-Man, Deadpool, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, Black Widow, Wolverine, Magneto, Hulk, and Colossus. I’m sure I might have missed some others in the trailer, so let me know who that is by leaving a comment.
Normally I’m not too into these sorts of games with comic properties because I find it very hard to capture the essence of what makes these characters to appealing in a limited group game. If the Scarlet Witch is present shouldn’t she be able to simply utter the words “finish the game” and that’s it, it ends?
Given the free-to-play nature I might check this out once my lovely new computer arrives. Until that time though, what are your thoughts on this? Just another lame action RPG, or does this have potential to become something special?
