Marvel’s Avengers reviewed on PlayStation 4 Pro by Tom Marks, also available on Xbox One and PC.
Marvel’s Avengers has a fun and endearing superhero campaign, but it’s tied to a loot-based endgame that’s repetitive and unrewarding. There’s a nugget of something cool here that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix could foster with updates in time, but right now it offers very little reason to keep playing past the credits.
