It's okay but... I wouldn't recommend the story mode
This is probably the first fighting game I've played where the "2 characters in a ring fight each other" is better than going through the story of the thing. This is a nice idea and some of the gameplay is fun but I'd be lying if I said this doesn't have problems.
Why is the story mode bad you may ask? Well I like the idea of Marvel Heroes going against other people they don't know who they are let alone the extent of their powers but I don't like it because of the standard missions. I played through until the Paragon missions and only picked the game up last night. There is no fighting situation where all the bots you see in the beginning of the area would be how many you fight. Let me explain, The developers put in something where if you beat up enough enemies, more will appear literally out of nowhere in the exact same area. What bugged me about that is if they want to add in more enemies, do it with rhyme or reason please.
The Versus mode is actually pretty fun. There is only one complaint I have with that and it's if you play a character that uses a long distance attack (such as Spiderman with his webs) if you want to hit someone with it while in the air, sometimes it will comply other times it won't. Aside from that I had a lot of fun playing it and actually kind of makes me wonder why they didn't just make it a Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat style game where a Marvel character goes up against an Imperfect. That would have been so much more fun.
So if you have a gaming console old enough to play this game on then I'd say the only reason why you should do the story mode is so you can get more characters to play as/fight on Versus mode. So all in all I liked the idea of the game, the versus mode is fun but - again, only play the story if you want more characters to fight as on Versus.
