RANKING THE FANTASTIC FOUR VIDEO GAMES

Through the month of July, I’ve looked at all the Fantastic Four games across several generations of consoles and handhelds. While of the seven games I’ve looked at I would only really recommended you at least try two of them, some are definitely better than the rest. To close out Fantastic Four month, here’s the…

REVIEW: FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER (XBOX 360)

2005’s Fantastic Four was a decent action brawler inspired by a movie that was pretty average to mediocre depending on who you ask. In 2007, both the film and video game received a sequel in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer with the movie sticking at Fox Studios while the game property changed hands from Activision and…

REVIEW: BATGIRL: A MATTER OF FAMILY DLC (PS4)

After the extremely disappointing day one DLC that came with Batman: Arkham Knight, my optimism about the stand alone Batgirl DLC from WB Games Montreal, titled A Matter of Family, was understandably shaken. Both the Harley Quinn and Red Hood expansion packs were pretty pointless and added little to the story of the main game, let alone the Arkham series as…

REVIEW: FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER (PS2/Wii)

In my review of Fantastic Four on the GameCube, I wrote  that while I did enjoy it, I wish that developer Seven Studios copied what fellow Marvel game developer Raven Software did with the X-Men in their X-Men Legends games. As I’ve learned from reviewing games on this site, you sometimes have to be careful of what you…

IS MARVEL’S NEWEST FILM HERO COMING TO DISNEY INFINITY 3.0?

There’s a lot of figures already announced for the third iteration of Disney Infinity, much the same way there was when the Marvel centric 2.0 arrived last fall (someone didn’t spend close to $300 in one day, not anyone whose name rhymes with Flair Barrell…). Of all the figures arriving though, so far they’ve only announced two from…

REVIEW: FANTASTIC FOUR: FLAME ON (GAME BOY ADVANCE)

The first Fantastic Four game for the Game Boy Advance that launched alongside the 2005 film of the same name was one of the more forgettable tie-in games, but its poor quality didn’t stop publisher Activision from enlisting that games developer from trying again later in the year. The second Fantastic Four GBA game of…

BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT AUGUST DLC PREVIEW FOR SEASON PASS HOLDERS

For those who purchased the Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass, August won’t see anything meaty like the Batgirl story DLC that launches today, but it still has some pretty neat stuff for hardcore Batman fans. The most interesting addition is the 1989 Batmobile pack which not only brings two new tracks inspired by Batman Returns, but a skin for…

REVIEW: X-MEN: MUTANT ACADEMY (GAME BOY COLOR)

Fighting games as a genre really took off in the 16-bit era due in no small part to the one, two punch of Capcom’s Street Fighter II and Midway’s Mortal Kombat. Getting games like that to work on 8-Bit devices where the input is limited to really two buttons was never really that good an idea, but it never…
