What To Play After Marvel's Spider-man 2? A Selection Of Superhero Games

If you have already played Sony's new superhero exclusive, Marvel's Spider-Man, and it didn't seem enough to you, or on the contrary, you didn't like it; then this material is for you! Here, we have collected ten games and game series that will help fans of superheroes plunge into their favorite genre.

The Batman Arkham Trilogy

Developers from Rocksteady Studios have made a real revolution in the superhero action genre by releasing Batman: Arkham Asylum. Everything was great in this game: the plot, the characters, the atmosphere, but the main thing was the combat system.

Combinations of punches dodges, and various gadgets put the player in a state of flow, not only allowing him to feel the character but also revealing him — the Dark Knight in the hands of the players became a truly terrible weapon, inspiring fear throughout the underworld of Gotham.

The sequel Batman: Arkham City consolidated the success of the original, becoming better at everything. The Batman: Arkham Knight prequel, although inferior to the first two games, was still an excellent conclusion to the trilogy, despite the problems of the release version.

inFAMOUS Series

In addition to the Spider—Man franchise, Sony has another superhero series, inFAMOUS. Its main feature was the possibility of wagering. The player was free to choose the path his character would follow — good or evil. Because of this, difficult issues often arise in games, on the verge of gray morality.

Prototype Series

An alternative to Infamous is the Prototype dilogy created by Radical Entertainment. In the story, we play as antiheroes and also choose the path we will follow. But not plot—wise, but gameplay — this is a kind of "villainous" sandbox, where the player is free to act as carefully as possible, fighting only with opponents, and to cause real chaos - without sparing the civilians of New York.

And for this, the games have everything you need — a good set of abilities, a good degree of destructibility of the world, and a complete absence of deterrent elements.

But being so unique and successful among gamers, the games could not provide the creators — the Radical studio closed, and the brand sank into oblivion. But today, after the transfer of rights to the franchise to Microsoft, there is a possibility of its revival — there is a demand for such projects.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

Released last year, the game about "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is a classic beat'em up (from English "beat them all") sidescroller, stylized as comics, games, and a cartoon of the 80s and 90s about teenage mutants. The project is made in a 16-bit style and plunges into a sea of nostalgia — the game is created as if it came out in those distant days of Dendy and Sega but is played as a modern product.

"Shredder's Revenge" takes place in just a couple of hours, but the game has something to keep your attention on — different modes, challenges, and collecting collectibles. There are seven playable characters available at once, with different skills, and the gameplay for them is completely different — some open only after re-passing the plot.

The game also has a local and online cooperative that allows you to collect up to 6 players on one screen. This reveals the project from the other side — a mess of allies and enemies begins to happen on the screen, turning the gameplay into a hurricane of fun.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

In 2009, the premiere of the film "X-Men: The Beginning. Wolverine" took place, and with it came the game with the same name. And if the movie failed, then the game gathered a loyal audience around it.

The project turned out to be a cheerful action game in which Wolverine brutally tears enemies apart, cuts them into leather belts, and gestures without brakes. Although the combat system seems simple, it feels full—fledged and thoughtful - the very case when a couple of buttons are enough to feel the character.

The plot repeats the script of the film but closes many of its gaps with additional scenes — it will take about 10 hours to complete the game, which allows X-Men Origins: Wolverine to open up to the player and saturate him.
