    Ok guys, I need your opinions on this game...is it good as in enjoyable? I've heard pretty decent stuff about this game and truthfully, its been ages since I played a console or cpu game...so I most definately need opinions on this game. For example, should I buy the PS2 version or the CPU version etc. Thanks in advance! :D

    I think a lot of how much you are going to like it is based on how much you like the Marvel characters. If you have a lot of history with Marvel it help you look past the weaker points of the game.

    Got the 360 version and I really dig it, it looks like it will have a lot of replay value due to all of the stuff to unlock. I recommend picking it up if you are even remotely intruiged :)

    I too have it for the 360. I enjoy it but I think that is in part due to my love of the Marvel universe. I used to be a fairly avid 'x' comic reader and was familiar with the universe as a whole.

    Yes, the combat is a bit shallow but it is still a lot of fun if you enjoy smashing on things.

    It's gonna go on sale for the PS2 for $19.99 during the week of Jan. 14-20 at Circuit City, according to this thread at DVDTalk:

    I would also expect it to become Greatest Hits in the near future as well.

    So what type of genre is it? RPG? Beat-them-up? I'm kinda disappointed the Hulk's not included...

    It's a fun game, but much like Xmen legends, it has the poroblem with the bruiser characters being too good not to use. Basically if you have two people, and you're playing as Captain America and Wolverine, you don;t stand much chance of having too much difficulty in beating the game.

    The end is anticlimactic as well, Doom is far too easy to beat.

    Still, loads of fun.

    You must be playing on a console.
