Marvel Super Hero Squad
The Super Hero Squad Show is an American superhero animated series produced by Marvel Animation. It is based on the Marvel Super Hero Squad action figure line from Hasbro, which portray the Avengers, the X-Men, and various other characters of the Marvel Universe in a cartoonish super-deformed style.
Marvel Super Hero Squad
The Super Hero Squad is headquartered in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and are frequently aided in their defense of Super Hero City by their boss Captain America, S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Ms. Marvel, rookie "Squaddie" and Wolverine's apprentice Reptil, and many more of their superhero friends.
Marvel Super Hero Squad is a video game developed by Blue Tongue Entertainment, Mass Media, and Halfbrick and published by THQ. It was released in October 2009 for the Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Wii. The game features cartoonish super-deformed versions of the Marvel Comics superhero characters, as seen in the Marvel Super Hero Squad toy line by Hasbro, as well as the television show made by Film Roman and Marvel Animation for Cartoon Network.
Marvel Super Hero Squad is split into two parts: Adventure Mode and Battle Mode. In Adventure Mode, there are 6 chapters for each hero: Iron Man, Silver Surfer, Hulk, Wolverine, Falcon and Thor. In the character selection, and the level players are playing, there is the main character, then the player gets to pick their own superhero, and they have a large amount of choices. In each level, they have to defeat a wave of enemies and achieve their target (Ms. Marvel tells them what to do). If it's a boss level, it is similar to the Battle mode although what the player has to do is either achieve 5 points, 7 points or 10 points in order to defeat him. Battle Mode is a free-for-all fighting mode. The player makes a new profile, then they either have two options: Versus Mode or Squad Mode. If it is Versus Mode, they pick their character they want to play as but if it's Squad Mode, Player 1 picks two characters and Player 2 picks the other two characters. Then in the Options section, the player picks how many points they can achieve in the battle: 5, 10 or more. Then they go and play the battle. Once finished, they can play again with different characters or go back to the main menu.
The Soldiers cover an Infinity Fractal. Doctor Doom plans to get the Infinity Fractal so he can make the Infinity Melder (a small version of the Infinity Sword). Then the Super Hero Squad intervene and destroy the fractal into pieces and one large chunk of it is stuck in MODOK's forehead. Iron Man tells the Super Hero Squad to find all 6 missing pieces of the fractal. Doctor Doom says that he can't let those super heroes get the fractals first. Iron Man introduces to the team a new invention called: The Stark Shard Locator and Monitor (SSLAM for short). So the team get into action and they find the 6 missing pieces of the fractal.
When they've collected all the 6 missing pieces of the fractal, the Mayor of Super Hero City congratulate them for their heroics. The civilians cheer for them then the Mayor reveals the fine works of art of the superheroes. Then Dr. Doom stands in one of them. Iron Man says it's the real Dr. Doom. The people scream. Dr. Doom shock-blasts the superheroes then unleashes his secret army (which is Modokbots). Doctor Doom blames MODOK. The team put on Stark Industries Mind Control Nullifying Belt Buckles and they have to defeat all the Modokbots. Once they've finished defeating Dr. Doom with the Infinity Sword, he's defeated and Ms. Marvel with the helicarrier takes him in. Iron Man congratulates the superheroes for their hard work.
The lives of superheroes are supposed to be the most exciting imaginable. Imbued with the power of flight, tank-tossing strength, or just an obscene amount of patriotism, these lifesaving do-gooders get their jollies from foiling the plans of evil masterminds, concocting elaborate disguises, or just messing around with their many extraordinary abilities. There is no such fun to be had in Marvel Super Hero Squad. Although you do get to take control of a wide variety of colorfully clothed saviors, ranging from the obscure bird-lover Falcon to the aptly named Iron Man, your exploits fall far short of heroic. You spend so much time punching out nondescript robots in forgettable corridors that your actions lose all meaning. Not that you can even see your actions a lot of the time. The camera pans and swoops around the battlefield with no regard to your needs, making it hard to focus on the dull button-mashing combat for long enough to grow tired of it. This uninspired superhero game is not worth your time.
Sadly, once the goofy cutscenes stop rolling and you're stuck actually playing the adventure, things quickly fall apart. This is a boring game, with combat that is so simple and repetitive you may as well be given a win button so you can quickly move to the next scene of the heroic soap opera. You punch with the A button, perform a long distance attack with the B button, string together combos by mashing these buttons, and end with a motion-controlled flourish. It's easy enough to dispatch the waves of attackers, but it's not even remotely fun. You can mash your way to victory without having to exert any thought or mix up your tactics in the slightest. You are accompanied by another superhero at all times, either AI or human controlled, but that doesn't make things any more interesting. The camera is so poorly designed that it is almost impossible to keep the action onscreen when a second player joins, making it all too easy for one player to fall off a cliff or get beaten to a pulp by a robot just offscreen.
Marvel Super Hero Squad never comes close to capturing the thrill of superpowered crime fighting. As you walk down nondescript corridors and through unimaginative evil lairs, repeatedly slamming on the punch button as wave after wave of faceless robots attack you, you'll wonder how such an exciting concept could have been squandered so spectacularly. The ridiculous story isn't nearly entertaining enough to compensate for the monotonous combat, and the simple Battle mode is too imbalanced to provide a good outlet for superpowered rage. Stay far away from this superhero snore fest.
Marvel Super Hero Squad Online. You know, the one based on the kids' TV show. It's coming to computers everywhere at some point next year, and I scored some hands on time with the children's Marvel-based MMO (made by Gazillion) at this year's E3. If you are looking for depth and massive customization, than stop reading right now because this MMO does not offer that. But what it does offer is a fun and safe way to break your kids into online gaming with the help of their favorite Marvel super heroes. 041b061a72
