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: 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.

The second Fantastic Four GBA game of…

That’s not always the case though: X2: Wolverine’s Revenge, Thor: God of Thunder and Batman: The Brave and the Bold are easily…

REVIEW: FANTASTIC FOUR (2005) (GAMECUBE)

Back in 2005, I don’t think that many people had high hopes for the Fantastic Four video game. Sure, it was a movie game and yes, the movie it was based on was received tepidly at best, but in hindsight there was a reason to be optimistic somewhat about it, and I can’t believe I’m going to…

REVIEW: FANTASTIC FOUR (PSONE)

Fantastic Four on the PSOne wouldn’t be the first time that members of the group would get their own game, that honour would go to the PC graphical adventure title Questrobe featuring Human Torch and the Thing, but it marked the first time the Four would be together in their own video game and on a console…
