I started playing Marvel Strike Force shortly after going to see Avengers: Infinity Wars because I was craving some super hero action. The game starts off fun and interesting, with slick animations and nice graphics as you watch your newly acquired Spider-Man beat up some baddies. Good graphics are nice to look at, but they don’t seem to be very nice to my phone’s battery (just complaining about good things, I guess).
As far as a free game goes, it’s everything that you would come to expect these days, Energy System? Check. Outrageously priced In-App Purchases? Check. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all bad. It’s actually pretty fun, and collecting new heroes to upgrade is a fun way to pass some time. I’m not even fully against Energy Systems in games because they keep me productive by limiting my play-time.
But It Can be Pay-to-Play
As far as in-app purchases go for Marvel Strike Force, I went into a bit more detail in the video, but the bottom-line is this: I don’t like them, I’ll probably never purchase any. I almost feel bad about this due to the absence of ads, but they’re far too overpriced, and don’t seem to add any additional value to the experience other than a hero with a different skin and moveset. I guess if you really enjoy the game, and your favorite hero is locked behind a paywall, then go for it!
Tons of Characters and Features
While there are tons of characters like The Punisher, Iron Man, Deadpool and others a lot of them either require a lot of work and effort to unlock, or just flat out cost money. The daily goals keep the game fun and interesting and the overall reward is to slowly unlock Wolverine. It took a little over a week worth of completing all the daily tasks. When I finally got Wolverine, it was a highlight of my experience with Marvel Strike Force so far. Wolverine is one my all time favorite heroes and I’m pretty biased towards the X-Men in general.
Worth Checking Out
Overall, it’s a fun game, with a lot of awesome action! If you haven’t checked it out already, you can play it on PC using Bluestacks, which makes the whole experience a lot better since your laptop or desktop probably has a bigger, nicer screen than your phone! Stay tuned for next week’s post/video – I look forward to playing more free games and sharing my experience.
See ya next time!
