I have heard nothing but bad reviews of this game. They range
from worst game of all time to worst game of the year. Curious as to just
how bad this game was I foolishly went to Blockbuster to rent it. Well I
must say the guys were right. This game really sucks.
First off the graphics are grainy, very 2D, animateD poorly,
and use a small amount of colors. It's hard to see exactly where to go and
what to hit sometimes. The sounds sound like a bunch of bats screeching their
heads off. Sad, sad, sad.
The control is so bad it's a wonder that you're even controlling
the guys at all. Slippery movement beyond comprehension. Bad response time
= lots of game overs. And the punches should clearly hit the bad guys miss
because of a bad target zone (although it seems to be the opposite with the
bad guys hitting you from a mile away).
The bad guys are dumb. They fall for all the tricks in the
book like walking up and down. The Fantastic Four are straight from Marvel
comics. They each have their own unique personality yet play virtually the
Acclaim, you're on the edge of becoming a non-insulting games
company again. Don't go back to the old days of licenses and bad games. Don't
bring out sucky games like this.
