A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Thorough tutorial, and, if things get too difficult, let the AI take over. 

Violence

Mostly cartoon violence with no blood, though some heroes use guns or projectile weapons. 

Sex

All female characters wear skin-tight costumes and are voluptuous. 

Language
Consumerism

Multiple in-app purchase opportunities help you advance your characters, though they're not aggressively thrust upon the player. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that MARVEL Future Fight is an action/brawler game where players constantly fight their way through waves of enemies, occasionally upgrading their characters or weapons. There are role-playing elements as well, since players can embody their favorite superheroes from the Marvel universe (though at first Captain America, Iron Man, and Black Widow are the only options). Kids will enjoy playing as these heroes, but the game is likely too violent for young players. Also, the developer's lack of an accessible privacy policy and the ability to "friend" strangers and play with them are concerns.

Grind just to grind more. Horrible waste of potential.

I honestly wish I could crap out a game using the hottest commodity in the world with a built-in audience with no fear of losing my job when it sucks. Get ready... Continue reading

Wow, such a great game and so many characters. play now!

What's it about?

In MARVEL FUTURE FIGHT players fight wave after wave of enemies as one of the heroes or heroines from the Marvel superhero universe, one handful at a time. Mostly this involves tapping on the enemies repeatedly to punch them, but characters also have special skills in the lower-right corner, which are special attacks. Players embody one of three heroes, though if they find themselves overwhelmed, they can have the game's AI take over and play for them. Between battles, they're able to upgrade the characters, improving skills with points earned from previous fights and eventually unlocking other characters. Players also can summon help from other players for brief periods of time by touching a module on the right side of the screen. 

Is it any good?

MARVEL Future Fight is one of those games that could split comic fans down the middle: Some of its features will appeal, but it doesn't seem to hit any target age. It's a game that has more depth than it first appears and is much more social than it initially seems, as you can have others help you for short periods. Fortunately, there appears to be no way for kids to talk to strangers. Kids also will appreciate the ability to switch between heroes as they play, giving the game a bit more diversity. The action is good and the role-playing elements scratch that itch, but some players might find the game's core mechanic -- repeatedly tapping -- a bit of a one-note song. And the extensive early hand-holding could irk some veteran players who quickly take to the gameplay. Ultimately, it's too violent for little kids and too simple for older teens, but kids who love the characters likely will have a good time.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about when violence is appropriate and how it's best to try to talk your way out of situations. 

  • Parents also can talk about what makes someone a hero. Is it superpowers or their willingness to put others before themselves? 

  • Set expectations around in-app purchases before downloading.
