    I can't wait.  I want to be Thor or Captain America, I can't decide which, I have a ton of comics from both of them, and some others, but they were the best comics imho.  X-men, spiderman, etc were good, but I just liked Thor and Captain America comics :D

    Good. This is how the actual game should launch as.

    Imagine how pissed off everyone will be when they play the game when it launches that they have to pony up real money to play their favorite Avenger in this "free" game when they were enjoying them in the open beta.

    Not to mention the fact that several heroes aren't even available with their own starter pack any more. You have to buy a $60 pack to get them now...

    Just when you think the PS2 graphics, mostly horrid voice acting, kiddie aesthetics, boring gameplay, uninspired powers, and absurd pricing model couldn't possibly fill this game with any more liquid failure, Gazillion manages to shove in another couple gallons.

    Edit: Lego Marvel Super Heroes, if it follows suit with the other LEGO games, will be a hundred times better than this turd. Plus it'll cost less than 1/3rd of the price!

    is it just me or did they make this game for the ipad or something, it looks horribly simple and unfun.

    well considering that Hellgate London was the last game their lead guy brought out, the under delivery is not too surprising

    at least it manages to be somewhat better than HG:L

    Sure when the game launches u'll have limited heroes to choose from as free player but as stated all heroes and 90% of the costumes can be unlocked in game without spending a penny. So please remember to mention that when saying players will have to pay to play as their fav heroes, it simply isnt true. 

     

    Also lets not forget that those starter packs which arnt available now were for several months up untill recently and upon official launch wll be purchasable once more.

     

    Finally this games not claiming to be the next big thing. It simply is a game which allows you to play as marvel heroes along side friends, to recreate some Avenger/Fantastic 4/X-Men fun for free.

    Its a game to play along side  more engossing and deeper games, when u need a break or jus a bit of silly fun smashing things up. So base the game on what it is and be fair when you criticise it. Its not half as bad as many make it out to be.
