Ranking 5 Best Fantastic Four Games

People think of the Fantastic Four as Marvel’s First Family. They’ve been in some of the best Marvel games, and we hope to see more of them in the future.

Even though the Fantastic Four has been around for a long time in books and is one of the oldest well-known Marvel character teams (predating even the Avengers), it had a hard time making its way into other types of media. In contrast to their Avengers peers, the Fantastic Four movies mostly got average to below-average reviews.

In the world of computer games, things stayed the same. Since the mid-1980s, the wonderful Four have been in a few games. However, only a few of those games have received good reviews from both reviewers and players, and they are sure to please all fans of the wonderful superhero team/family.

Questprobe Featuring Human Torch And The Thing

When you get past the fact that its name is a word, one interesting thing about Questprobe featuring Human Torch and the Thing is that it’s the oldest game ever made about the Fantastic Four. It came out in 1985. The reviewers mostly said that the game moves too slowly and that some players might have trouble finding the clues and answers they need to move on with the playing.

The good things about the game are its high-quality images, especially given when it came out, and the fact that it takes players on a journey with the heroes, which will keep them interested. The game probably won’t appeal to people who play now, but it’s fun to give it a try and see how superhero games have changed since then.

Fantastic Four (2005)

The game was based on the same-named 2005 movie. It got average scores of about 60%, but it’s still one of the best choices for people who want to play a game about the Fantastic Four and not other Marvel heroes. It’s interesting how the hero’s skills change over time. In real life and in the movies, each member of the Fantastic Four can do different things based on their superpowers.

Fans of the movie will be glad to hear that the stars voiced the figures and played the same parts again. Some players later said that the game set the tone for the future, better-reviewed Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series, which showed that it was worth it in the end.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2

Reviews for the second game in the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series were mostly good, though not as high as those for the third game. The story is based on two well-known Marvel plots, Civil War (not the same as the American Civil War) and Secret Invasion, so it will be interesting to both MCU and comic book fans. This time, the superheroes are fighting both each other and a new enemy.

Similar to before, players can put together a team of four heroes, like the Fantastic Four (who are split up during the Civil War), or they can mix the skills of two different heroes to make new and exciting teams. The reviewers liked how the skills worked together, how Drive Mad looked, and how many heroes were offered. On different platforms, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 got ratings that ranged from about 60% for Nintendo DS and Wii to over 70% for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes

Both LEGO and Marvel are very famous, so it makes business sense to combine the two. Marvel games usually have a lot of superheroes, and the 2013 action-adventure game is no different. Fighting action scenes and puzzles are both part of the game. The Marvel heroes work together to stop Doctor Doom and Loki, who have also gotten other bad guys to work for them. As with most superhero stories, there is a lot at stake, and the heroes have a tough job to do if they want to win.

Even though the game isn’t really about the Fantastic Four, one of the two main bad guys is Doctor Doom, and there are nods to other famous Fantastic Four characters, like the Silver Surfer. Both reviewers and players liked how funny the game was, how it had heroes and enemies, how it had a lot of tasks, and how it had open-world gameplay that let players feel free to move around.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

As you can see, Marvel Comics has a huge cast of characters, both good and bad. When you mix it with the popular RPG type, you can get a good game, like the 2006 game that works on all the major systems. Fans of the Fantastic Four have to play this game because the main bad guy is Doctor Doom, who is the team’s most famous enemy. Doctor Doom and the Masters of Evil combine their powers once more to take over the world, and it’s up to the superheroes to stop him.

You can pick from more than twenty active characters, which is a great feature of the game. Plus, the person gets extra points if they can put together the Fantastic Four or another character team. As with many great RPGs, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance can be played over and over because there are different ways to finish the story. The game got mostly good reviews; on average, it got over 80% on big game sites like Metacritic and GameRankings.
