Marvel’s Avengers Review: Heroic Treasure Hunt

Real Talk By: Cmack The Don

The Avengers from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix is better than the movie tie-in video games of the 90s and early 00s, but not nearly on the level of Rocksteady’s Arkham series or Insomniac’s Spidey installment on the PS4 (shaking my fist like J.Jonah Jameson at the fact that one isn’t all-platform).

We’ve been spoiled in recent years by single-player superhero games that are so high quality that we forget that something like The Avengers (2020), would’ve been considered well above average if not great in the not-too recent past.

Real Talk By: Cmack Tha Don

Gamers have been forced to put up with many horrible film adaptations of video games, many so bad I won’t even mention them here so that readers won’t be reminded of the trauma.

Real Talk By: The AX

Whenever I play Injustice: Gods Among Us, I tend to use Aquaman. Not because he’s cool or even remotely powerful, but because of the absolute shame it brings upon those whom I conquer. It’s a known fact that Aquaman has been a laughing-stock of the comic industry for years. Continue reading “Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis Review (GCN, Xbox)”
