Marvel's Avengers Review in Progress

After spending more than a dozen hours beating up A.I.M. goons in the beta for Marvel’s Avengers (available last weekend to pre-order customers on PlayStation 4), I’m strangely equally as excited to play the full game as I am worried about its long-term prospects. The early slice available here is, of course, vastly different from the final game in a number of ways, including its progression, mission structure, and the amount of content available, but it’s also robust enough to finally provide a good sense of what kind of game Avengers actually is. The answer, at least so far, appears to be a fun and charming single-player superhero campaign that’s grafted onto a far less entertaining multiplayer looter with a potentially troubling combination of problems.

We’ll update this article with further impressions and, eventually, the final review. The first story mission available is the same Golden Gate Bridge scene we’d seen in past demos – essentially a bombastic and entertaining way to dress up a tutorial. The second, however, is what really gave me a sense of optimism for the campaign. Starting simple, with Bruce Banner and Kamala Khan trudging through the woods together, this mission trades in cinematic spectacle for funny and genuine character moments that felt far more like Crystal Dynamics’ recent Tomb Raider games than the Destiny-style loot systems that have defined Avengers in the lead-up to…
