The Completionist Edit
Jirard notes how the story starts out strong, but finds the storytelling and character building thin, due to the large amount of characters. He also criticizes the similarities in attacks and animations between characters he feels a too different from each other, such as The Thing and Spiderman. Despite this, he's glad their personalities are still in tact, and finds their representation strong. He also finds the backgrounds, cutscenes, and somewhat generic soundtrack serviceable. However, he's disappointed with the minimal amount of witty dialogue.
Jirard brings attention to the freedom to experiment and customize with different characters and techniques. He combat satisfying.
Jirard notes how the game's DLC is bugged, making achievements reset certain data, and therefore making the game a nightmare for him to complete. Overall, he finds the game fun, though repetitive and mediocre.
