Ubisoft Announces Avengers Game for Kinect… In Other Words Another Game We Won’t Play

Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will join forces on the and with in a game based on the iconic “Secret Invasion” storyline. Yes that means that this is not a movie tie in game, but it’s still a game that involves motion controls and the . With the game also coming for Wii U there is a genuine chance that the game could be good on one of it’s two platforms, but the has failed to impress when it comes to action oriented titles.

Tony Key, the US senior vice president of sales and marketing at states “We are excited to team up with Entertainment to bring some of the most iconic comic book characters from the line-up to life in motion-gaming… Fans of the universe and superhero games are going to love the extensive combinations of characters, motion-controlled moves and competitive gameplay.”

While I can’t deny the idea of being able to get my SMASH on as the the big mean green Incredible Hulk sounds appealing, I’m still not sold.

Andreea Enache-Thune added ““For the last few years, Marvel has positioned itself to deliver the absolute best in entertainment, be it in film, animation, comics or games… Partnering with Ubisoft is a big part of that ongoing movement. We are confident that Ubisoft’s talent matches Marvel’s own commitment to making : the best in the motion-controlled gaming category.”

While I can’t deny part of that statement with the massive success marvel has had as a brand over the past decade, the fact remains that Marvel hasn’t been putting out the highest quality products in gaming for quite a while. The last Spider-Man game left something to be desired, as did the tie ins with Thor and Captain America. The last Incredible Hulk game was a gigantic mess and looked like it was from the last generation of systems and both Iron Man film games were god awful and cheap. Yes, those games are from multiple developers and there have been some strange stand outs like Spider-Man’s Shattered Dimensions, this generation of consoles would have to look back to 2007 when Ultimate Alliance hit to find a truly fun and engaging game, and even that has it’s issues and looks dated.

Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earthfeatures 20 different characters, including Avengers such as Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, as well as other fan-favorite Super Heroes and Super Villains from the Marvel Universe.
