Square Enix revealed the first look of the PS5 / PS4 version limited character ” Spider-Man ” for the action game ” Marvel’s Avengers “. The game is now ready to play. The purchase option is given below.
Spidey joins the fray as part of the “With Great Power” hero event, which is available for free. It’s difficult to say how large of an event this will be because it’s neither an operation (like Kate Bishop/Hawkeye) nor an expansion (like War for Wakanda). The plot follows Peter Parker as he discovers a new threat and joins the Avengers to prevent AIM from obtaining hazardous and unknown technology. Pete, who is used to flying solo, struggles with the dynamics of operating as part of a team, and we’ll see if he joins the Avengers full-time or continues to fly solo towards the conclusion.
Ms. Marvel grabs onto ledges, tumbles when platforms crumble beneath her feet, and barely makes it through every big leap – all of which are reminiscent of Crystal Dynamics’ previous work on the Tomb Raider series. In a few sequences, Kamala is even forced to use stealth to get past AIM robots serving MODOK, another character who is fully realized and developed from beginning to end.
At this stage in the game, Kamala Khan’s story is still going strong, with mini-arcs for each of the Avengers thrown in for good measure. Crystal Dynamics did an excellent job tailoring circumstances to these heroes’ special talents.
Watch the trailer below.
The Hulk is the unstoppable beast you’d expect, annihilating foes and destroying landscapes. Mjölnir, Thor’s hammer, completely annihilates his foes, and each strike seems like it was given by a deity. I really appreciated Captain America’s shield shenanigans (although he doesn’t get much screen time for legitimate narrative reasons) and Black Widow’s acrobatics. All of these characters have fantastic cinematic moments that are accompanied by massive gaming setpieces. I won’t say too much about them since I don’t want to give anything away, but one great sequence has you frantically sprinting as the landscape revolves around you.
Iron Man is the only character that did not captivate me. His gameplay isn’t horrible, but it’s repetitive; his distant attacks aren’t as exciting as the other heroes’, and his close-quarters combat isn’t as stunning. The acting of Nolan North as Tony Stark is superb — his voice and delivery are excellent – but the jokes are overdone, seeming like a broken one-liner machine.
When it comes to battle and manoeuvres, all of the characters have identical button mapping, yet they feel different. Each hero has a variety of light and heavy combinations that are fun to utilize. For distant or aerial targets, each character has a good solution. Almost every AIM enemy type is exploited via the dodge, block, and parry tactics, yet your opponents aren’t particularly diverse.
Avengers, assemble! You have a great game to play!
