Decided to try the Avengers beta. It's not great. Out of the 6 playable characters, only 3 of them seemed to play well, the other 3 felt clunky combat wise. Traversal also felt too slow for some of the characters. Game looks like it will be very microtransaction heavy, seemed like all of the cosmetics are locked behind a store. Tutorial level felt way too cinematic and linear with QTE's and such, but the first actual mission with Hulk and Ms. Marvel was much better in that regard. Graphics are the main high point I'd say, Crystal Dynamics are still top notch on that front, Avengers graphics do seem better than what we saw of Gotham Knights today, and we still haven't seen the PS5 or Series X graphical updates for Avengers, whereas I'm assuming that what we saw of Gotham Knights today was the next-gen version.
I could maybe see myself playing it some later on once more characters are added in the free DLC updates, but I can't say that I'm all that excited to play it. Gotham Knights still looks much better.Last edited by shikamaru317 - on 22 August 2020
