Marvel Executive Vice President of Global Digital Media Group Ira Rubenstein has a promise for worried gamers: No more crappy Marvel-based video games.
Based on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I'm inclined to believe Rubenstein -- while that game had its issues and problems, it would be hard to call it "crappy," especially in comparison to every other Wolverine game. On the other hand, based on just about every movie-based game in the history of video gaming, I'm inclined to not believe him. Remember, Iron-Man was a Marvel game.
Marvel movie tie-in games Iron Man 2 and Thor are on the way when their respective summer blockbusters hit theaters, so we'll all be able to judge the relative crap-it-tude of these titles, and Mr. Rubenstein will be proven either a liar or the white knight of gamers everywhere who just want decent games based on their movie heroes.
What do you think? Is it possible that future Marvel tie-in games won't be crappy? Or am I just an optimist here?
