Marvel Heroes thoughts after first play through

Ok so I admit it. I'm not finished with the play through. I still haven't killed Doctor Doom. It's worth doing that run a few times it's pretty spectacular. I've done it solo and I've done it in a group. Group wins hands down every time. This game is all about the spectacle!

Playing solo the game feels a bit shallow and repetitive. It's at it's best when you are surrounded by other heroes and the combined power of your team allows you all to decimate entire regiments of Goons in a the opening volley of the battle!

Cyclops blasts with eye lasers
Storm shocks with lightning
Deadpool rains bullets
Ironman launches missiles
Hulk... Smashes.

The over the top visual effects and smoke clears, you look around and everything is dead. There's just enough time for your Spirit (mana) to regen before you hit the next formation of Goons and your group collectively one-shots them all.

And on and on and on it goes.

It doesn't take long to figure out that this game is not focused on fine tuned encounters or complex ability rotations. It's about fast paced action, spamming your foes into the ground with your most OP abilities and the more of the that happening around you the merrier it is for everyone, unless you are one of the poor hapless Goons on the receiving end. I don't think that would be fun at all. Why they insist on charging in and attacking the tidal wave of super-powered destruction I have no idea. Guess you don't have to be smart to be a Goon.

For now it feels exciting and fun, not sure what the end game is going be like once we're through the story and the initial infatuation wears off. I just know that if I'm feeling the urge for the joy that comes with unrepentant, destructive, mayhem; Marvel Heroes is the place to be!
