At times like this, all we want to say is %26ldquo;we hate it%26rdquo; and leave it at that. Then at least we%26rsquo;d be able to get on with the important business of sealing it in a bag and throwing it in the river. Well, we should probably explain why.
It%26rsquo;s a bog-standard brawler %26ndash; actually, make that sub-standard. Enter story mode and you%26rsquo;re plunged into the %26lsquo;thick%26rsquo; of the action, with a woefully unexciting scrap against three robot alien things that you have to defeat through repeated stabs of the A button %26ndash; it doesn%26rsquo;t get much better either. Subsequent levels feature a host of Marvel characters, ranging from the famous to the scraping-the-barrel-no-names, all of which play much the same in the shoddily presented levels. Then there are the EA-created folks, who are alarmingly uncreative. One is a female version of the Human Torch - brilliant! Another seems exactly like Spider-man, but with green goop subbing for web fluid.
