7 games to prepare you for Avengers Infinity War

Avengers Infinity War is finally on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K today! As Thanos finally shows us all what he can do with his shiny Infinity Gauntlet, we’re taking a look at the games that are perfect for getting you in the mood for a superhero smash-up.

So whether you’re a Spider-Man fan or a Thanos fiend, these Marvel-ous experiences will scratch your superhero itch!

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2

This adaption of the Civil War comic storyline gives you the chance to decide whether you’ll fight for Tony Stark’s pro-registration agenda or Captain America’s anti-reg stance. Whichever side you pick, the huge cast of Marvel heroes and villains makes this isometric RPG a must for fans of superhero showdowns.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series

Mixing Telltale’s flair for storytelling with the style of the film universe, this 5 episode collection sees you learning about each of the Guardians past, while they bicker their way through another adventure. Getting to make decisions as Star-Lord was as nerve-wracking as you would expect.

Captain America: Super Soldier

This sojourn through one of Captain America’s WWII missions is a literal blast from the past. Our hero is on the hunt for Hydra villains in a Bruvian castle in 1944, and Cap’s game plays a lot like Arkham Asylum. Castle Hydra can be explored at your own pace, and the combat focuses on timing instead of button-mashing, making for a cracking superhero adventure.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

What’s better than one Spider-Man? How about four of them, all from different universes! Shattered Dimensions lets you play as the original Spidey, Spider-Man 2099, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Noir Spider-Man. Each offers their own unique abilities and styles of play, and the game’s jam-packed with Peter Parker fan service.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

This Marvel mash-up might also have Capcom characters getting in on the action, but there’s plenty of superhero scraps to satisfy any fan. Whether it’s stepping into the golden boots of Thanos to deliver beatdowns, or sharpening Black Panther’s claws on the faces of your foes, your fight needs will be met.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2

The Marvel heroes are no strangers to LEGO games, but their latest outing takes things to another level. Nearly every Marvel hero and world collides in this blocky beauty, and there’s even a DLC pack that lets you play as a Lego-ified Thanos!

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

What do you want from a Hulk game? The clue is in the title, and this smash-em-up makes good on that promise. Whether you’re clambering up buildings as the angry, green fellow or pulverising anyone daft enough to be in your vicinity, few games have ever made you feel as powerful as this does!
