The Best Superhero Video Games of All Time

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes


These creative little plastic bricks have certainly had quite the comeback in recent years. Now they spawn popular video games and even number one box office movies. One such gaming effort from the LEGO realm is ‘LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes’. The action-adventure game was praised very highly by gamers and critics alike and takes place in an open world environment. The game allows you to play as the caped crusader as well as other popular DC Comic characters. There have been many Batman-based games released such as the the Dark Knight Rises slot game, and LEGO Batman 2 is definitely amongst the very best.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance


Theatrically the Marvel universe has swarmed cinemas over the last few years with a constant flow of Marvel-based releases. And with each release comes the opportunity for a video game spin-off. However in ‘Marvel: Ultimate Alliance’ a whole host of famous faces come together to give us one heck of a showdown. The game features over 140 Marvel comic book characters and allows players to pick a team of 4 offering total team customisation. Players can also control the fate of the Marvel universe with the decisions they make.

Batman: Arkham City


The Batman makes it on to our list once more with the incomparable sequel to 2009’s thrilling ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’. Arkham City from Rocksteady Studios picked up a number of awards for its gameplay, music and action all brilliantly honed to give players a real intense gaming experience. In this all new storyline more Gotham-based characters come out of the woodwork for the Dark Knight to tackle. The incredible FreeFlow combat aspect as well as the typically atmospheric environments and characterisations help make this stand out above the rest.

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction


Ultimate Destruction is an often overlooked superhero classic that was perfect for those wishing to cause a bit of virtual mayhem. In this open world environment the green Hulk was able to break away from his particular missions, if the player so wished, and was able to go off and quite literally smash things to smithereens. You could even break things in order to then use the leftover pieces to batter your enemies long the way. The storyline is engaging enough but it’s the freedom of rage and destruction that makes this effort stand out, and is the perfect solution for letting off a little steam.
