10 Comic Characters Still Waiting for Video Game Justice
9. Fantastic Four
Offending Games - Fantastic Four (Probe Entertainment Limited),Fantastic Four (7 Studios) Our first look at a game featuring a playable Fantastic Four was ironically nearly unplayable. A terrible beat-em-up that was full of bugs, with controls that made it hard to walk, let alone use any of the team's powers. The second game was based off of the unsatisfying movie, and equally fails to deliver an entertaining game, plodding through the movies storyline and offering mundane missions like slowly moving flowers in space against a ticking clock. While the team was utilised far better in Marvel's Ultimate Alliance games, it still left us wanting more. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwi6ys8cZAY How It Should Play: The Fantastic Four work best as a team, and the game should reflect that. While multiplayer-only games have their pros and cons, a third-person action game that featured four players locked in as the various members of the Fantastic Four would make for an interesting game, and offer the potential for some intense superhero/Halo style deathmatches. With a number of great locales, storylines, and villains to choose from, not to mention a ton of other playable characters using former members of the FF (She-Hulk, Wolverine, Medusa, etc.), the potential for a well done game featuring the Fantastic Four is intriguing, to say the least. Special Move: Flame On with the best of them as your team takes out the opposition with nothing but trash talk and terrible voice acting.
