Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth

Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth (Nintendo Wii U) Video Game

Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth on the Nintendo Wii U is a re-jigged version of the same game that was produced for Microsoft's Kinect system on the Xbox 360.


5Some of you may or may not have seen pre-alpha footage for an Avengers game that surfaced around the time the movie was released in theatres. It was only a few minutes worth, but the concept looked great. It showed off a four-player cooperative game played from the first person perspective, where you could play as Thor, Iron Man, Captain America or the Hulk. Sadly the project was ditched for whatever the reason and Ubisoft took on the mantle and changed the game entirely. Originally released as a Kinect title, Avengers: Battle for Earth has been re-released for the Wii U. The game completely ditched the first-person idea in favour of a third-person brawler and while it has its moments, Avengers: Battle for Earth ultimately feels like a missed opportunity.
