GAME REVIEWS: Fantastic Four

Activision (all consoles)
Game •• Graphics/Sound ••½
At least the game is better than the movie. Marginally better. Sure, it's cool to let players geek out with all four members of Marvel's first family: malleable Mr. F, see-through Sue Storm, her blazing bro Johnny, and dermatological disaster The Thing. But the action isn't balanced, with levels that hardly play to the strengths and weaknesses of each character. However, if you get giddy beating up bad guys over and over again, level after level, to the drone of hopelessly flat zips and bangs in passable 480p, then by all means ... lame on!.
