I don’t care what anyone says, I had a blast with the single-player of Marvel’s Avengers.
To be honest, I was expecting something grindy, with a random loot system where each new piece ups some sort of useless stat by one. It turns out, the single-player isn’t anything like that. Loot is there, sure, but it’s all manageable, and you don’t spend much time in your inventory at all.
I had a blast smacking up enemies with Kamala Kahn’s stretchy arms and pounding fools into the floor as Hulk. Sometimes you want a gamey game that’s focused on being fun instead of deep.
The story itself I found engaging. It’s not on the same level as Marvel’s Spider-Man or Spider-Man Miles Morales, but it’s enough to keep you entertained. The main villain (I won’t spoil it) was a really solid take on what is a very comic-book-looking character, too.
Plus, like, it’s really cheap now. What have you got to lose?
