If you are interested in the genre this game looks like it might be good to pass a few hours. The coverart looks pretty good but we all know you can’t judge a game by its cover. Still I think this should at least be worth checking out and it should be good for all ages. Enjoy!

This game looks like it might be an okay game for kids, so feel free to pass this on to your little brother or sister to try out, however I wouldn’t expect much if I were to play it myself. I haven’t hear much about this game good or bad so give it a try for yourself if you think it is your style.

This game looks a little more promising than some of the other releases we have been seeing recently. It’s been getting good reviews from some people but dont expect to be blown away, the game looks okay but is far from a must play. Give it a shot though, its hard not to like the MARVEL characters.

Marvel Super Hero Squad is an immersive, single and multiplayer game filled with dramatic, interactive environments where players are given extraordinary powers to fight for good or evil, depending on which Super Hero Squad character they chose to play as.
Not a bad looking little game, but not a terribly good looking one either. I think I will give this one a pass but if you’ve got some spare time on your hands you might as well give it a whirl.
