One of the most anticipated Switch games this year has to be Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. It’s an exclusive game that features some of the most famous superheroes and villains ever depicted in movies and comics.

It officially came out today and the reviews are in. Almost everyone is in agreement: It’s a satisfying game. Now, this isn’t a Marvel game with some grand adventure or emotional plot like what’s been shown in the Marvel movies as of late. It has a different appeal. That is playing with your favorite superheroes as a team.

You have the ability to mix and match so many different characters, including the Hulk, Captain America, Spider-Man, Black Widow, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel just to name a few. Chances are you’re favorite superhero from Marvel is a playable character in this game.

Each one has unique abilities and style of combat, giving you plenty of opportunity to test them out to find what works best for your preferences. Now, the combat isn’t the most realistic. Instead, it has a very arcade-like feel to it. That’s not a bad thing, either. It makes the game really accessible to gamers, even those who’re not familiar with these sort of fighting games.

Reviewers agree that its addicting combat can be attributed to its flowing design. Moving from one enemy to the next feels so good, as if you’re unstoppable at times. Testing out each character’s special set of moves also will have you hooked.

There are so many possibilities, especially how you configure your team. You can include a brasher like Hulk with the swiftness of Spider-Man. There’s no telling what perfect combination of characters you’ll discover.

Since squads are heavily involved in the action, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is the perfect multiplayer experience. You can join a session with a group of friends and go ham on famous villains together. The action never seems to stop.

Critics are raving about the ability to unlock new characters as you progress through the story. It keeps you interested to see who you’ll unlock next. There are plenty of DLC characters on the way, too, including Moon Knight, Morbius, Punisher, and Blad. Yes, the vampire slayer is coming to this incredible fighting game.

If you’re a fan of comics and superheroes, this is the perfect game to get for the Switch. It hasn’t been out a day, and already, people are loving every bit of it.
