Welcome, true believers to our “spectacular” collection of Marvel games. From Ant-Man to Zabu, we have something for everyone here no matter who or what their favorite Marvel character, team, or movie is! There have been Marvel games dating all the way back to the days of the Atari 2600! It is crazy just how many games there are based on these iconic characters and here we have a few fun suggestions of games for you to check out from our incredible collection.
We have to start with Spider-Man! You cannot talk about Marvel games and not talk about our favorite webhead. There are two fantastic 16-but beat 'em ups in Spider-Man and Venom - Maximum Carnage and its sequel, Spider-Man, and Venom in Separation Anxiety. These are games in the same kind of style as Final Fight. Originally released on the original PlayStation, Spider-Man brought Spidey to the world of 3D gaming and this game still holds up very well to this day. If you want a modern Spidey game then the phenomenal Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is like you are playing through a movie!
If you want Marvel games where a bunch of heroes gets to team up then we have some great suggestions for you. If you are a younger gamer, like to play with a child or a younger sibling, or if you just want something light hearted, Lego Marvel Avengers is perfect. This features iconic moments from a handful of movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet is another great team up game and this one is based on the popular animated series. It has a great sense of humor and it looks like the cartoon too!
For those that are looking for Marvel games where things are a bit more mature, check out Marvel Ultimate Alliance. This game is great in that it is a dungeon crawler that allows you to create a team of four heroes. It also has a tremendous 2 player arcade mode as well. Its sequel, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is cool in that it ties into the epic Civil War storyline. We even have the third game in the series, the Nintendo Switch exclusive Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order.
For you fight fans we have more flying fists than even Hulk could deal with. Marvel Super Heroes is a fantastic Capcom beat-em-up that features a great selection of Marvel Super Heroes and a clever use of the Infinity Stones. We will stick with Capcom as you cannot talk about Marvel games and not bring up their great range of VS games. We of course have Marvel vs Capcom 2 and the other two MVC games. However, we also have what came before it in Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter.
This is just a small taste of what we have to offer when it comes to Marvel games. From fighting, to action, to RPGs and even shooters and platformers. We have games that are based on the comic books, the classic animated TV shows from the 90s, and even some of the movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe too.
