Story and Gameplay

The Super Hero Squad is back for an all new adventure alongside Season 2 of the hit TV series.

My Take on the GameYes, I will admit it, I am a Marvel Fan and this game just allows me to continue my love of comics and superheroes! The graphics are very similar to what you will find on the Superhero Squad cartoon. There is some pixelation, but all in all, the characters are very lifelike and you are able to fight supervillians just like in the cartoon itself.

I really liked the variety in the game and the ability that it provides you in trying different superheroes and mastering their powers.

I had my eldest try this out as I have been trying to get her to start loving comics as much as I have... I think this game is definitely a start in the right direction.

I have truly enjoyed this game and I am really looking forward to getting further on the different levels on this game and I know that you will also!
