Best Marvel Video Games of All Time

- Advertisement -

Just like Star Wars, DC Comics, and other enterprises with tons of licensed properties, Marvel has had a bit of a mixed relationship with the world of video games. From arcade smash-hits to a host of hastily made movie tie-ins, some games were certainly a lot more fun and memorable than others. Online casino slots such as Mr Green slot games are very popular without a doubt, but comics tend to inspire game developers to make video games that will never stop being popular. So, here is our list of the best Marvel video games of all time.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows 

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows begins with an apocalyptic event caused by a symbiote infection. The player is then thrown into a flashback that shows how it all happened and introduces a few other familiar Marvel characters. The combat is fast and fluid and the ability to string together seemingly infinite combos using web-zip attacks is a sheer joy. Overall, a great video game.

The Punisher

Most of the Marvel games are great at incorporating lots of superhero cameos and comic book plots into their storylines, but you won’t find too much of that stuff in The Punisher. As you take on the role of vigilante Frank Castle, it’s your sole duty to track down criminals and then kill them in the most violent way imaginable.

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

This was the first game that really captured the whole “Hulk Smash!” vibe of the Incredible Hulk. Players are given an open world environment where they can explore and destroy pretty much everything using a devastating set of moves that let you run up walls, flatten entire buildings, and drop kick a tank five blocks down the road. Hulk’s combat abilities also become more destructive as his power increases.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes

It’s true that the Lego games are intended for kids, but their designs are so universally appealing, they can be enjoyed by pretty much anyone. A big part of the appeal is the excellent mix of action and humor. The developers always do a great job of adapting movies and comic books into fun and interesting stories that jive with the Lego aesthetic.

X-Men: Arcade 

X-Men: Arcade

At a time when arcades were just starting to feel the ramifications from the rise of console gaming, the X-Men: Arcade cabinet was still devouring kid’s quarters like a mutant-powered middle school bully. For many people, this game was and still remains the pinnacle of side-scrolling beat ‘em ups. Players can choose from one of six X-Men from the early 90’s roster including Cyclops, Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Dazzler, and everyone’s favorite, Wolverine. The objective is to fight your way through hordes of enemy Sentinels, Reavers, and super villains on your way to stopping Magneto from imposing his will on human civilization.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance

Marvel Ultimate Alliance

Like the X-Men Legends games, Marvel Ultimate Alliance is an action RPG featuring Diablo style gameplay. However, the number of playable characters in Ultimate Alliance is staggering. From fan favorites like Daredevil and Doctor Strange to relative unknowns like Gladiator and Grey Gargoyle, it feels as if every Marvel character makes an appearance in this game. Best of all, when you assemble certain teams of heroes, such as the Fantastic Four or the Avengers, you gain special battle bonuses.
