Fantastic Four

The Thing, Invisible Woman, Human Torch and Mister Fantastic are here to represent in the best F4 game to date that is faithful to both the movie (recently released on DVD) and the comic book. 

Fans of the series should be stoked with how good the game looks and general gamers will be pleased at how easy it is to just get into the title and fight the good fight. The storyline and the way that the game has been developed allows for accurate use of character abilities and the interpretation of them is very faithful to the overall experience. 

You will mainly be on a mission to fight your way through wave after wave of thugs, for some this experience  will be repetitive, however you can always come up with better ways to get the job done.  

One of the main sticking points for me with this title was the awkward control system. During the fighting when you need to really know where you are and what you are doing, the camera asserts itself and you are left a bit in limbo. The controls themselves are imprecise and adversely affect some gameplay. This will get annoying along the course of the game. So even though the learning curve is barely non existent, you never really get the feeling that you are in control. 

Swapping between the characters is another cool bit of the game so you can really take advantage of a particular heroís powers to get the best result out of an encounter. This is assigned to the D pad and easy to do. There are also issues with characters clipping through objects and a pretty non interactive environment. 

This is not a bad movie to game conversion, itís simply not a good one. Better than average but really, there needs to be a bit more playtesting for the next one. 

Give it a rent, then buy if you like.
