Love Marvel? Play These Games

Whatever you’re into, there’s a game for that.

In this regular series, our editors recommend a handful of games perfect for fans of a specific theme.

This time, it’s Marvel. If you’re into Spider-Man, Black Panther, or just love wearing tight-fitting costumes, we’ve got something for you.

Superheroes: Fight!
Undoubtedly, Marvel Contest of Champions is the game to play if you're ready to rumble as your favourite superhero.

The controls are simple, so it’s easy to get going straight away. And there are so many characters, scenarios, challenges, settings, and live events to enjoy that it’ll keep you playing for weeks, months, or maybe even years.

This is as comprehensive as it gets for Marvel fans. Oh, and it’s a great fighting game too.

Something for Younger Players
For straight-up comedy larks, you can’t go wrong with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. It’s exactly the kind of 3D puzzle-platform adventure that UK gamemaker Traveller’s Tales has perfected over the years—and the way it pokes fun at comicbook tropes is genuinely funny.

SMASH! The LEGO games are a great option for Marvel-loving younglings.

The Strategic One
Big casts of characters having equally big fights sounds like the ideal setup for a turn-based squad battle game. And that’s exactly what Marvel Strike Force is.

Like Contest of Champions, the sheer scale of the roster, number of things to see and do, and live events and constant updates will give Marvel fans plenty to sink their teeth into.

This one’s a more tactical affair; you pick which hero attacks next and which attack they should use.
