Forums - Gaming Discussion - Jim Sterling about Marvels Avengers

KLXVER said:
It looks like Ultimate Alliance 3 with a bigger budget. Pretty bland and repetitive combat.

Actually, aside from the obvious difference in graphics, UA3 looks like the best game ever made next to Marvel Avengers xD

Lol all people i follow on Twitter is praising the game saying they first impressions didnt Gave game justice, people like Jim Sterling needs to please his fanbase , i Will never listen to angry youtubers ever again.


Seems about in line with my expectations. From the moment it was announced, it looked like they ripped a 6/10 licensed game for the PS2, slapped a fresh coat of paint on it and called it a day...

While I'm not the biggest Jim Sterling fan, he is 100% right about this one. It's hard to imagine a more shallow game, it's designed with one intent only, to milk money out of people. The fact that it is costing us both Tomb Raider and Deus Ex games as well, really pisses me off.

Honestly, I love Marvel but this game has always felt a bit off. I got a little hyped but it never really hit me the right way. I might get it depending on Spider-Man or other characters I want to play as are added. But who knows? Some games manage to redeem themselves over time (FFXIV, No Man's Sky, etc.)

This game looks like it could be fun for an hour or two at best. I also agree it doesn't look particularly good. I don't think it's going to last too long as a live service.

Signature goes here!

He's very cynical recently but then kind of understandable as thousands of workers are being made redundant while the CEOs get richer and not just in games. It's a game as service, that's obvious a mile off but it may well be a good game, as long as you are playing and having a laugh with mates but not willing to pay £50 for that, especially when it lacks certain things. Like Black Widow with a russian accent...wait, that's paid DLC isn't it?

I think he's always been that way, but can you honestly blame him?. I've felt that way for a long time now, since we've been witness to large companies trying to constantly nickel & dime us time and time again, and it's gotten so very old and stale now, that our favourite hobby has become nothing more than a means for profiting share holders, who don't even care about our hobby. it just sours the whole experience.

Like whatever happened to having 100% faith in your own product, making it a full one and not having to rip it into pieces, make some shoddy exclusive deal with another company, and trying to control the entire gaming experience from afar (always online GAAS model)?

Well I'll probably save money on it

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Yes, see games like Path of Exile, and Warframe for reference.
