Age of Ultron – Is It Still The Same Master Plan As The First Avengers Game?

The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is an online role-playing game based on the hit movie franchise of the same name. You play as both the Hulk and Iron Man in this fun online game. You can also reenact famous scenes from the films and build your own team of characters to fight the villains. Is Marvel Avengers game worth buying?

 

This game’s story revolves around two unlikely heroes – Rhodey and Sam Wilson, who have been chosen by the United States government to join the Future Foundation, a secret organization which handles international threats and attacks from various corners of the globe. Together, they will face crises, rescue fugitives and learn about their own future in the future of the Marvel Universe. What type of game is Marvel Avengers? Is it worth buying? What kind of technical issues does it have?

 

It’s based on the future of the Marvel Universe, set some five decades after the events of the films. The game starts with a mysterious man called the “Taskmaster” attempting to control the comic book superhero team the Avengers. The only way to do this is by training each of your four heroes, namely Iron Man, Thor, Spiderman, and Hawkeye, in special moves and combat moves. Once you have all these fully trained heroes in the game, you are then tasked to do a single task which usually involves defending the base or dealing out a few assaults on the villains.

 

The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes features two games in its single-player campaign. The first game is the Story Campaign, which takes place within the main arc of the game and gives more of an introduction to your heroes and their skills. It also introduces the concept of the Taskmaster and gives you more background on the villains you will have to face off against. The second is the Multiplayer mode, which pits your team of Avengers against various aliens from the future and their attack plans and goals on your behalf.

 

The story behind the story includes a plot that throws modern-day America into turmoil when a group of convicts headed by the villain called the “inhuman entity,” reactivate an team called the Invaders. The Avengers’ charter is to protect humanity from the invasion’s negative effects. During the course of the game you’ll learn that the Invaders aren’t the only threat to mankind, as the Kang Dynasty is out to colonize Earth using various biological weapons. Once the humans fight and thwart the Kang Dynasty, however, the invaders return…and Earth is once again at risk.

 

The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes does an excellent job of recreating the early days of the comic book world and tying-up loose ends. Early on in the game you learn that Dr. Curt Connor, a scientist working for S.H.I.D.A., has uncovered some interesting information about the alien race known as the Kang Dynasty. It turns out the Kangs are planning an attack on Earth on an a-day called “holidays” for all the human civilizations.

 

While the game provides substantial background for the events of the film, it often neglects to tie-in the story to the events in the comics. That’s a shame because it would be a more complete experience if the story told by the game matched the continuity found in the Marvel comics. There is an element of surprise when the player arrives on a future earth where the Civil War has happened (as seen in the Civil War: Special Forces). If the game had tied-in this information to the events found in Civil War: Special Forces the experience would’ve been much richer and more enjoyable. That’s a small nitpick I can see about a franchise that started with such promise.

 

What I most enjoyed about the Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was the avatar system, which allows players to customise their favourite characters and play as them in split-screen online modes. For example, Iron Man can be played as an iron man and Vision can be an android but not both. It’s a neat idea and I wish it had more scope. The Infinity War games also tie-in well to the upcoming movies so it’s important for any fan to get up to date on what’s happening within the MCU.
