Beautifully presented, with a really addictive combat system – great fun!
The latest roleplaying game from Playdom, Marvel: Avengers Alliance puts players in the role of a young upstart agent in S.H.I.E.L.D. Marvel: Avengers Alliance reminiscent of classic turn-based role-playing games that players have known and loved for decades.
Avengers Alliance offers up five different classes, and each is strong against one type and weak against another. Think rock paper scissors, or better yet, Pokemon. But rather than simply being stronger and weaker against certain types, when you have the upper hand you’ll benefit from a specific perk.
The game is overflowing with great little touches like these, and once you’ve got a handle on them, it can lead to some really interesting situations. Finding the best course of actions to take ends up feeling like a really satisfying puzzle. At the same time, though, it’s a level of depth that’s only there for people who want it. If you’d rather just mash one of the attack buttons, that’s an option here too.but hey – it’s certainly still playable for those who might be scared off by something a bit deeper.
Avengers Alliance – Official Trailer
While we’ve spent so much time talking about the combat (it really is the meat of the game), there’s a good deal built up around it that manages to shine too. Players will be able to unlock new and useful items and equipment through research, send certain heroes on solo missions to earn money and experience, and even take on the superhero teams of others in a bot-controlled asynchronous PvP mode.
Both your superheroes and your S.H.I.E.L.D. character can be modified by permanently equipping different kinds of the aforementioned ISO-8, but more importantly, your S.H.I.E.L.D. character is highly customizable through the equipping of different weapons and suits. You can pretty much turn your character into any of the classes you want them to be, so long as you tweak them the right way.
Likewise, the game offers a huge selection of superheroes from the Marvel Universe to pick from, each belonging to one of the five main classes. Some of them will join you as the story progresses, but most need to be purchased with “command points.” On the upside, though, you’ll often encounter special fights that let you play with a hero you haven’t unlocked yet, giving you a taste of whether or not you’d want to add them to your collection.
The game offers a single-player narrative, quality artwork, a neat multiple currency system… we could go on and on. What it basically boils down to is this: Marvel: Avengers Alliance offers a lot more substance and depth than you’ve come to expect from a Facebook game. It’s one of those rare Facebook titles that transcends the term “clickfest,” letting players put some real thought into what actions should come next. If there’s even an inkling of superhero or role-playing fandom in you, Marvel: Avengers Alliance is an absolute must-play.
