Marvel Future Fight Review

2:38 PM

Probably the only time I'm outside the house is when I run errands for my Mom or when I come up with project proposals to my unemployed friends. The proposals are mostly film-related so yeah I'm still serious about pursuing a career in filmmaking. Anyway, for most of the time I'm either in bed ready for an ephemeral slumber or still on my bed facing the laptop or my phone and mindlessly scrolling my social media feeds. On productive days I open Photoshop and Blogger.

Recently, I got myself to play this game called "Marvel Future Fight". It's an interesting game I downloaded after a marathon of all Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films. It came to a point where I realized everyday is just like the other and I thought I needed something different in my life. My mom's been hinting that I go find work because duh? I've been a bed burrito for months. So I started thinking about the future, my future. And I never thought saving storage space to play Future Fight would be that or at least a part of it.

I'm not really the gamer type but I'm a sucker for really good graphics and that's mainly the reason why I downloaded Marvel Future Fight. Upon browsing Google Play for Marvel themed android applications I thought the Future Fight characters closely resembled the characters we've seen fight on MCU. The game is developed by Netmarble who are mostly known for their Korean android applications so I like to think it's tailor-made for Samsung devices. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S4 by the way and so far I've had no problem running the application.

Marvel Future Fight is a role-playing game where you assemble your own team with a maximum of 3 heroes and go on missions and do 3v3 Battles. There are four types of mission in the Single Player Campaign which are the Normal Missions, Elite Missions, Daily Missions and the Villain Siege. It will take time to unlock the last three so I suggest you explore the normal mission first. The Normal mission is where you get items you need to upgrade your armors by the way. The moment you unlock the other three, make it your target to play via the Elite in search for Character biometrics, Norm stones and even clearance tickets.

My team! 

All the other Marvel characters on this game are unlocked except for your first three characters and you need these character biometrics to unlock and 'recruit' them. So keep on collecting biometrics as they're also used to rank up your heroes. As for the Daily Missions and Villag Siege, both are quite hard if you're level is under 30 but you can try the first few missions in search for ISO-8, EXP Chips and Villain Biometrics. ISO-8 is also an important stuff, if you followed the storyline it's an enhanced material that will increase all of your stats. It's quite expensive combining and enhancing ISO-8 but they're a big help during battles.

I'm not quite sure on this but I think the default characters are Captain America, Ironman and Black Widow. But don't worry! During the practice gameplay you can use Thor or any hero you like. What a tease! The most exciting part of this game is actually collecting the characters and going against the boss as you near the end of a mission. Once you get used to doing the missions, especially when you've already unlocked the 3-star autoplay option the game kind of wears on you. It's not boring. It still kind of gives you some adrenaline but we really could use a change of environment and more accessible characters.

So far I have 12 characters namely Captain America, Ironman, Black Widow, Ghost Rider, Blade, Daredevil, War Machine,
Falcon, Vision, Winter Soldier, the Hulkbuster and unfortunately M.O.D.O.K. I hate that guy!

Perhaps the most tedious part of playing this game is repeating the missions you've already accomplished just to get more materials, biometrics and above all, leveling up your newly unlocked heroes. But what the hell, if you got a hero like Spiderman, Hulk or Thor or Captain Marvel or the inhuman Black Bolt you just can't help but want to level or rank them up. I still don't know how to unlock characters from Guardians of the Galaxy on this game but it was announced that Netmarble has already released them. Maybe on a special event called "Dimension Rift"?

Anyway before this sort of Marvel Future Fight Review gets long let me just say that of all the games I've downloaded this game will hold a space in my storage. I mean despite all the repetitive and long adventures it does give some adrenaline keeps you on the edge during fight with the bosses. The strongest opponents I've had so far are Ironman, Cap, Spidey and Goblin but who knows when I'll get to Chapter 8 entitled "The Apocalpyse" where the multiverse is expected to collide. For the meantime, I'll enjoy the free time I have in playing this game because so far it's better than other android games out there and there's nothing Marvel a Marvel fan wouldn't enjoy. Well, except maybe for the first Daredevil movie and in my opinion, Ghost Rider. Let's forget those two ever happened, shall we?

Rating: 3.5/5
