Kotaku Plays: Marvel's Avengers Academy

99 ratings | 12233 views
Marvel and developer TinyCo put together an awesome re-imagining of Avengers heroes and villains as college students. They recruited top notch voice talent like Alison Brie, Colton Haynes and John Cena. All that talent for a glorified Simpsons: Tapped Out clone.

I feel like I'll just get some cheats to get a lot of shards to just basically get everything in the game instead of waiting hours upon hours in-game, anyone know any good places to do that?

I think there's a problem with the Marvel empire at large that contributes a bit to this game's supposed "mediocrity." Ever since the MCU cranked into high gear, the Avengers characters have become somewhat overexposed. There's just way too many comics, books, cartoons, and other media appearances of these characters, almost all with the same bland, cookie-cutter tropes. True, that's sort of what happens with every set of popular characters these days, but it's particularly disappointing with Marvel's merry non-mutants. In the original comics, the Avengers eventually matured, developed new characteristics, and the writers found ways to evoke the old tropes in exciting new configurations. However, the base models are currently being dittoed way too much these days, and this game is, sad to say, continuing that trend. Nice art style, the writing and voices are on point, and I am interested in seeing if these guys have been somehow affected by Hydra, but still, super-sameness!

I recently finished binge-watching EMH before Netflix took it off, and wow, that's one of the best translations of comic to screen I've ever seen! It had the best of everything these characters have ever been part of while building off the solid foundations and character drama of the Lee/Kirby years. I was kinda hoping Academy would follow that trend as well (Wasp's a big part of the story!), but no such luck so far. Still, better than Assemble TV.

My opinion on Academy has slightly improved after playing it for a little over a week, but yeah, the female to male character ratio is way off kilter. It is nice to see characters like Spider-Woman and Wasp play prominent roles, and I cannot wait to play with Kamala Kahn when her unlock arrives.

+Benjamin Kellog yeah, I agree. what's worse is the fact that they scrapped the Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon which was doing very well in being quite true to the comics and building it's own likeable iterations of the characters in favour of making one more like the movies. Plus there's tons of avengers that aren't getting spotlighted(especially the female ones).

As a game developer i feel bad for all the guys who studied for years to make this game

I remember running this treadmill back in that Simpsons game.

+SilverShion I was thinking the same thing. Games might be these peoples' passion, they worked hard and studied, and then they ended up at some low-end "job" making "games." Mike says "but the gameplay is well... it's just clicking and waiting." This is not a game. It's a cutesy interactive watch-the-paint-dry simulator. I can't imagine how the developers must feel, working hard to make this as good as possible, but then end up being shackled by corporate saying "it needs to be this and that, naught but this and that."
