Marvel Avengers (2020) game: IT'S NOT WORTH IT

2 posts in this topic

This is my message to those of you that are looking forward to the Avengers game coming in 2 days: 

 

I had played the beta on PS4 for 8+ hours, and here’s what I can say about that experience: At first I thought it’ll be like that Rise of the Imperfects game back on PS2 with the many characters having their own movesets,

but with gear mechanics that's in Destiny or some other looter games. But it’s more deeper than that thankfully. Each characters have their own playstyle so it’s pretty cool to try them out one by one. At first your movesets are really basic, but you get to unlock air moves, combos & new abilities that you can mix up at your own pace. I think I like Black Widow & Iron Man the most because of how fast she is that she's like Bayonetta if Bayonetta has a third-person shooting mode aside from her martial arts, and how Iron Man's playstyle is so damn versatile once you unlock his heavy weapons. And because of this

The problem though is whether or not their playstyle’s gonna carry the entire game because I pretty much know what to expect for the rest of the game. You have 2 kinds of missions: campaign missions that progresses the story, and what I can describe as "do the same thing over and over and over again" missions for leveling your characters up & getting better gears. Even though the story missions might look fun, they get really repetitive really quick because all you do is beat people up, move to the next location while trying to open up locked doors by hitting orange thingies / stepping on platforms, beat even more enemies up, and do it all over again until you beat that mission's boss. If it weren't for the variety of moves each characters can do, you'll get bored so damn easily that it makes the vanilla Destiny 1 look like Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. The original one with the awesome setpieces that is.

 

The most annoying thing about the whole thing is that you have to use a certain character for a mission to get the high level gear for them to use. So if you play a mission as Black Widow, only she gets gears. No gears for Iron Man or Hulk. So you pretty much are expected to play a mission over and over again if you want your certain Avengers up on the level of the other guys & girls, which will inevitably get boring when you do the same missions for the 6th time. They need to make it that you can get gears for other characters when you’re doing a mission as another character.

 

Just by playing the beta, I already had my fill for the game that I don't have to play the full game. it alone lets me know what to expect for the full game. It'll probably be an ok action rpg looter game if it goes right at best, or a repetitive grindfest at worst.

 

And well, thankfully I don't need to wait till the game comes out to get my answer because youtubers have already put a full playthrough of the whole game

I have seen the entire story mode of this game which takes around 10 hours, and I can say with 1000% certainty this:

 

STAY

THE

FUCK

AWAY

FROM 

IT

 

While the intro of the game is pretty damn cool & the whole game's a nice origin story for Kamala Khan, aka the new Ms Marvel, the rest of the game is filled with such......... cliched superhero plot that is so damn predictable & generic that you can pretty much guess what's going to happen from the beginning of the game until the end & you'll be completely right about it. And get this: you get to only use Thor & Captain America in the story IN THE LAST 2 HOURS OF THE DAMN STORY MODE. So if you're looking forward to playing as them, well unfortunately you'll have to play 6 hours beforehand of the various story missions which are 80% the exact same stuff over and over and over again. Oh but don't worry though, after the story missions are complete, you're finally free to do what Avengers are supposed to do: do the same bunch of missions over and over again for 10+ hours with mostly the same mission structures + buildings because apparently this game has become a "life service" game.

Or as I like to call it "generic mobile game".

 

If you want to unlock their cool character abilities, you're gonna have to play through the boring grindfest missions just to level them up. OH COME ON, if you want to learn from mobile games, learn from the ones that are actually really good & actually do it with great care & variety! Learn from Fate Grand Order, Sdorica, Epic Seven, the mobile games that Korea & Japan actually made which has surprisingly great depth & variety, not Raid Shadow Legends or one of your grindfest Marvel mobile games that's the same shit over and over again!

I have not doubt in my mind that this game is going to be like Destiny 1 & 2. It will receive many2 story dlcs that will make the game actually complete. Hell, there's already a dataminer that shows exactly the many more heroes that are going to be playable!

As it stands now, this game is just as I feared: an OK game at best with a lot of grinding, and with a plot that's pretty cliched that you can see how it progresses as if you're a fortune teller, and you'll be right in guessing it. Oh, and the base game without DLC will probably become a free to play game down the line, or at least be so damn cheap that you can get it for $3.

You know it's not good when Fortnite is actually more interesting than this game.

If you want to get the game, wait till all the contents are released with, hopefully, more mission varieties & epic boss battles and set pieces and wait till you can get all of them in the "actually complete edition" for $5. It'll probably take a long wait, but it's for the best.

 

You can save that money to get an actually awesome game coming in September: the Mafia 1 remake, which I am sure as hell am definitely gonna get because I love the original game & this remake is even better than that.
