This brawler takes you to different areas of the Marvel Universe where you battle evil alternate universe versions of your favorite Marvel heroes.
I didn’t really expect much from Marvel Future Fight when it first came out. I wasn’t really a fan of the graphics, and there’s the free to play aspect that I really hated. But Collectiboss erm… boss Baddie recommended it so much that I just had to download it.
Free To Play, But You’ll Live
Other free-to-play mobile games just make you play the same damn thing over and over again, with no regard to story. They try to hook you with the promise of free coins or some other power up and make you grind so much you’ll lose your patience and end up purchasing the damn McGuffin.
Sure, Marvel Future Fight is still very free to play, but at least you won’t feel compelled to drop a huge amount of real-life money so you can get that Hulkbuster. The game may skimp a bit when it comes to the currency, but I feel like everything can be affordable with a little grinding.
Auto-Play is a Nice Touch
Speaking of grinding, there’s a nice Auto-Play option when you hit 3 stars on a level. So if you need to level up a newly acquired character or you just need to rack up on experience, just hit the Auto-Play button on a level that you’ve already mastered before and you can easily level up without the need to slog through those opponents you’ve already beat before.
I Think We’ve Seen This Before
And unlike other free-to-play games, there’s actually an effort to make a coherent story here. Penned by fan-favorite comic book scribe Peter David, here’s the storyline, taken from the app description itself:
The Avengers…Spider-Man…the Guardians of the Galaxy! You can unite the greatest heroes from all corners of the Marvel Universe for the epic battle that will decide the fate of all realities – MARVEL Future Fight!
S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury has sent a dire call from the future: The multiple dimensions of the multiverse are collapsing upon each other – and it’s up to you to ensure humanity survives! Gather the mightiest Super Heroes and Super Villains, assemble your team, and protect the universe at all costs!
Wait, a message from the future so the characters living in the present can turn things around and win? Isn’t that the exact plot of the Mortal Kombat reboot?
What About The Gameplay?
It’s nothing to write home about. It’s a 3D beat ’em up. If you’ve played any of the Dungeon Hunter games, you know exactly what you’re getting. The controls are okay, but the camera tends to end up in weird angles that I can barely see what I’m playing at times. I am annoyed at the need to be online all the time, though. I really don’t understand why companies are dictating that their games should be constantly pinging their servers. Since my internet providers haven’t been the most reliable things lately, it just ends up being a huge hassle.
