With a continuous success in cinematic adventures, Marvel is currently at an all-time high. But what about Marvel video games. In this article we are going to count down some of the most successful marvel video games.
X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse
Building on the solid action RPG gameplay of the 1st edition, X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse has everything the original had and more. The epic storyline takes the usual battle between the X-Men and Brotherhood of Mutants and flips around it, with two groups forming an uneasy alliance in order to defeat a super villain – The Apocalypses. With appearances of many characters from the comics and an addictive gameplay, X-Men Legends II is a great entry in the X-Men franchise.
X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse
Along with the animated X-Men TV show, X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse was the favorite among young marvel fans in 90s. The game featured great graphics and challenging gameplay with plenty of action. The game’s most unique and memorable feature was the ability to choose from 5 characters – Wolverine, Cyclops, Psylocke, Gambit and Beast. Since it was made by Capcom, the influence of the widely popular Street Fighter 2 was clearly present in the game’s design.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Three X-Men game in a row might seem a lot, but it’s a franchise that lands itself perfectly in the video games. Plus origin’s Wolverine is just plain bad ass. You play as Wolverine as we hacks and slashes his way around the globe leaving bloody trails where every he goes; the game is gory as heck. One of the few cases the game seems better than the movie are the plots taken from the movie itself in which the movie actors’ voices are being used for the characters, including Hugh Jackman.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Like other Lego video games adaptations Lego Marvel Super Heroes takes the marvel franchise and puts it in the Lego world. In this game however, you get to play a 150 Marvel characters, each with their own character specific moves and abilities. With an open world featuring many of the Marvel’s iconic locations, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is Marvel’s fan service at its finest with dozens of gameplay hours to soak in.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Once again proving how to make an excellent game, Raven Software released Marvel Ultimate Alliance starring a wide array of superheroes and super villains from marvel comics. The game is a spiritual successor to the X-Men Legends game and features much of the same action RPG game that made those games great, but with vastly improved graphics and presentations as well as an insanely deep cast of characters. If you love Marvel and Action RPGs, this is a must play.
Spiderman 2 truly encapsulates the feeling of being the Spiderman by letting players actually swing around rather than just throwing webs in the sky as had been the case with previous Spiderman entries. The gameplay feels fantastic and this game’s version of the New York City is a blast to explore.
At a time when arcades were beginning to show signs of their demise, the X-Men arcade realty stood out. Although there are different versions of this game the best had to be the biggest one, which can be enjoyed with upto 6 players at once. Playing this game with 5 of your friends is a blast as the gameplay is solid and the graphics are great.
Marvel vs Capcom 2
Although the 3rd editon of the popular fighting series is already out, our favorite is still Marvel vs Capcom 2 based on its huge character roster. Boasting stunning 2D characters with colorful 3D backgrounds, the game’s visuals are incredible. With fast combos and a wide variety from both the Marvel and Capcom universe, Marvel vs Capcom still holds up as tip tier fighting game and is our choice for the best Marvel game.
