Don’t let the simple control schemes or family friendly nature of the Amazing Society’s upcoming Marvel Super Hero Squad Online fool you. As one of the titles that left us genuinely impressed after our hands-on time at E3 2010, this deceptively simple game certainly packs a solid punch in the fun department. We put the game through its paces including a quick run though a group combat mission, zipping around in the social areas of the game and much more. Read on to discover why this is one title we’ll be keeping a close eye on in the coming months.
As you travel around the city, you’ll have the chance to participate in a number of shorter mini-games as well as socialize with other players. On the socialization front, Super Hero Squad Online aims to make emotes a more prominent aspect of gameplay, essentially allowing you to use them to communicate with other players with a single key press. One emote that was particularly awesome was the Thing creating a snow angel… in concrete.
