Final Breakdown


The lack of four-player control options really hurt: it's Fantastic FOUR, we should be able to play that way. The rest of the game is your standard beat-em-up adventure.


The graphics are nice, but not 100% perfect. A few graphical glitches go a long way to hurting the game, and since it's using an engine that's old, that hurts as well.

Sound and Music:

Voice acting and music aren't terrific, but not annoying either. Chalk it up to "inoffensive" without adding anything to the experience.


It's your standard beat-em-up title; don't expect too much in the way of difficulty.

Controls and Interface:

The camera controls aren't too bad except for tight spaces; switching characters isn't too difficult either. The most annoying part is working through the mini-game of each character's powers, since they're the inevitable button-mashing/controller-swirling variety that are guaranteed to wear down control sticks and buttons in short order.


Good for younger kids or hardcore FF fans, but not recommended for general gamers.
