New ‘Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet’ Video Game Screens

As Marvel’s most kid-friendly license, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I tried out “Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet” yesterday at Marvel’s NYCC booth. What I found (during my admittedly brief trail run) was that the expectedly kid-friendly adventure game that was unexpectedly varied and fun. Judging from the game’s newly-released screen shots, I have a feeling the portions beyond what I was able to sample are going to follow suit throughout the title when it drops November.

THQ’s initial 2009 SHS offering was a more in line with a “Super Smash Bros.” – style fighting game with an adventure mode, but the new adventure title mirrors the show much more closely with a storyline that jibes with the second season of its animated series source material with an expanded adventure mode, plus four other game modes and at least 15 playable characters throughout the game.

I played as Iron Man and the Hulk on the Wii version of the game (which looked a little less polished than its Xbox 360 and PS3 counterparts) and adventured through a Thanos spaceship that varied combat, puzzle-solving and boss battle gameplay before cutting to a more race-like segment.

Starring the same voice cast as the show, the game really tapped into the show’s sense of humor with a cutscene that proved even a mad titan can be clueless from time to time. It would have been nice to have played long enough to catch up to Asteroid M or square off against Annihilus’ bugs playing as another character combo as shown in the game’s newly unveiled screen shots, but its really just nice to know that younger fans will have a varied adventure game on their hands next month should they choose to “Hero Up.”
