The super hero bubble really does not look like it is going to burst any time soon. So we can expect to see many more games based on our favourite heroes.
Personally I think that the majority of super hero games the last few generations have been decent. There have been a few stinkers, but for the most part they have done what they set out to do. Let you play as your favorite super hero. Do many of these games push the envelope in terms of game play and presentation? No they do not, but at the end of the day if you are a fan of the super hero you are playing as then you are bound to have a good time.
Today I am going to list the five super hero games I want to see on the Xbox One. This Next Xbox console really will have the power to make these super heroes really super. (sorry for that cheesy line) Anyway we would love to hear what you guys have to say about the next generation of super heroes games in the comments below.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
There actually was a great scrolling beat em up released in 2003 that despite the terrible reviews I found to be a ton of fun. It felt like the two sequels and each TMNT game after that just got worse and worse. I say its time for a total reboot.
With a new TV show on Nickelodeon and a movie supposedly still in the works the timing could not be better for a new Ninja Turtles game. It needs to be a scrolling beat em up and its vitally important it has four player support. In a ideal world I would love a game set in the 1980’s animated series kind of like what was done with the last two Transformers games.
While Blade has had a couple of video games and featured in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance game. I really hope that on the Next Xbox that they really let Blade cut loose. Blade actually is a very complex character, but he has a pure hack and slash fighting style. So to me this makes this a game that could be very interesting.
I could easily see Blade in a video game very similar to God of War. Where you just need to kill vampire after vampire and upgrade all of Blades various cool gadgets.
I have a feeling that this one wont actually be that far off. I loved Lego Batman 2 its free roaming and cinematic presentation eclipsed anything that had been in the Lego series prior. With that being said I really think that a Lego Avengers would be an even bigger success.
There already is many different Lego Avengers toy sets in the stores so I really hope someone green lights this project soon. I would really love to see them come up with an original story for this similar to what Lego Batman 2 did. And of course with the power of the Xbox One I am sure that the presentation will be a kick in the pants. Also this may very well be the time for a four player Lego adventure.
Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction on the GameCube, PS2 and Xbox was a fantastic game it really did make you feel like you were the Hulk. Also I feel that the game based on the Incredible Hulk Movie from a game play point of view was good, but the story was boring as hell.
I think that with the power of the Next Xbox we would be able to see Hulk really cause some major damage in a huge free roaming world. After all Bruce Banner many times just wonders the earth stumbling into these situations. I feel that this is something that would be really cool in a video game.
The fact that Dare Devil is blind is what I think has put many developers off making a real Dare Devil game. I am not saying that they have a problem with blind people of course. Its just how do you incorporate that into a video game?
Well this may sound a little out there, but I think Dare Devil could very well work from a first person perspective. I think if the visuals were similar to like what Rocksteady did with the detective mode in Batman Arkham City. I know that playing a whole game in this perspective may be a little off putting, but perhaps they would mix it up with some 3rd person action scenes as well.
So these are my top five what about you guys? Do you think my picks suck and think there should be other games made before these? Then let us know in the comments below what super hero games you are anticipating on the Xbox One.
