From SpiderMan to X-Men Legends we have mentioned Best Marvel Video Games of all time for PS3, PS4. We are all fans of comic book characters or movies in some shape or form, but being also gamers, it is sad that most comic book games or movie games have a notorious reputation for being usually mediocre. But some games break free from movies or comics entirely and tell their own story, and there are even games that do a great job of recreating great movies.
Best PS4 Marvel Video Games of All Time
One of the biggest comic book companies is undoubtedly Marvel. With nearly 80 years of existence and dozens of heroes and villains, Marvel trademarked a lot of cinema and game adaptations. Today, we compiled our favorite, the best Marvel video games of all time.
1. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows
The 2008 Spider-Man game Web of Shadows was the game that finally broke free from the cinema adaptations and told its own, original story and it was pretty good. Treyarch did a great job on really making you feel like Spider-Man; swinging around the city was designed really well and the combat is still fun and varied for even 2018. You can switch between normal Spider-Man and symbiote Spider-Man anytime you want and they both have different moves. You also make a few moral choices during the story which affect the ending. Web of Shadows is still fun to play even 10 years later.

2. The Punisher
The Punisher was a hidden gem of its time and it still is. Like the title suggests, you control The Punisher, a guy who lost his family and wants to kill all criminals the way he sees fit. It is a Max Payne-like 3rd person shooter; you can dodge sideways, to your back or to your front but the game doesn’t go into bullet time. You can use enemies as shields and go into a berserk mode where you can kill every enemy with one hit with your knife. You can also interrogate enemies with brutal tactics to crucial information. It is a great game in even 2018, especially for its comic fans.
Platforms: PlayStation 2, Xbox, Microsoft Windows, Java, Windows Mobile
3. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
The fact that X-Men Origins: Wolverine’s movie was terrible should not trick you since the game was surprisingly awesome. It expands the movie’s storyline and you play sections from the past, present and future. The game truly makes you feel like Wolverine; you can lunge at your enemies and tear them apart with beautiful combos and executions, you can see the character’s wounds heal and the game truly doesn’t hold back on the gore aspect, which how a Wolverine should be. It is a proof that not every movie’s game will suck.
Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Wii, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo DS, Windows Mobile
- Cinema quality action sequences with jaw-dropping graphics and detail
- Over 100 custom moves, reflex quick-kills, and long-range lunge attacks
- Rage abilities to unlock special moves and powers
- Utilize Wolverine's Feral Senses for tactical advantages over the enemy
- Real-time regeneration powers to mend bones and tissues for non-stop combat action
Deadpool’s game is everything you expect from a Deadpool game: vulgar, goofy, funny and highly sexual. Just like in the comics, there is not a fourth wall here, so he knows that he is in a video game and that opens various ways to a lot of funny cutscenes. The writing and the voice acting for Deadpool is absolutely brilliant. The combat is simple, you always have a melee weapon and a ranged weapon and can use them to chain-combo groups of enemies. You can also unlock new weapons or upgrade the existing ones. Though the combat is a little bit repetitive and the campaign is short, the witty humor is worth it, especially for the Deadpool fans like me.
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

5. Spider-Man (2018)
The PS4 exclusive we’ve all been waiting for, Spider-Man, is finally here, and it is beautiful. The game nails almost everything a Spider-Man game should nail. The web-swinging around the city feels absolutely astonishing with the well-designed New York city and the spectacular musical score. The combat is deep and fun with dozens of different gadgets and attacks you can use while dodging. The story discovers both Peter Parker and Spider-Man and every single character you will see in the game is voice acted and modeled perfectly, giving them a true sense of character. It is a game that every action, Spider-Man and comic book fan should play.

6. Spider-Man 2
2004’s legendary Spider-Man game taught us that not all movie games should be bad. It was one of the first games to nail the Spidey’s crucial swinging around the city. For its time, the game held up pretty well on the visuals department considering the size of the New York map. The characters and the story stayed loyal to the movie. The gameplay was a little shallow but the upgrades, combos and dodges you can perform still kept the gameplay fresh and enemies could easily overcome you in large numbers. If you still have a PS2 hanging around, maybe you should revisit Spider-Man 2 for some nostalgic time.
Platforms: Game Boy Advance, GameCube, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, Xbox, N-Gage, Mac OS X, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable
7. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
The legendary fighting series Marvel vs. Capcom returned on 2011, but the fans were disappointed on the character roster. So Capcom released Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 just 9 months later and added 12 more characters. It is probably the most colorful and flashy fighting game you can play. Every super move fills the screen with over-the-top moves and effects. Every character feels distinct and fun-to-play and if you are a fan of Capcom and Marvel, there is a lot of fan service. Although the combos and the general gameplay is a little bit simple and far from competitive, it is still a blast to play and gorgeous to look at while waiting for the 4th installment.
Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita, Microsoft Windows
- Go to battle with the ultimate roster of 50 Capcom and Marvel heroes and villains, including every character from the original game and 12 new fighters

- Newly rebalanced gameplay provides more depth and accessibility for both newcomers and experienced gamers

8. The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction
Inarguably the best Hulk game to ever come out, Ultimate Destruction hit the shelves in 2005 and except for the graphics, the game still holds up, especially on the gameplay department, with its smart, creative and fun design choices. There is a lot of stuff you can do as the green giant; you can pick up and hurl anything you see, you can hold helicopters and jets and drag them to the ground, you can put a truck over your and sneak your way through certain sections, you can traverse the world map easily etc. Gameplay is varied and fun and is coupled with really tough and smart enemies; also the boss fights are extraordinary and hard. If you are a Hulk fan and want to smash everything you see, it is still one of the best action games of all time.

9. X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse
The addictiveness of action-RPGs really show itself on the X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse. You control a 4-man team to stop the evil plans of Apocalypse and for that, X-Men and the Brotherhood are forced to work together. It is actually a very brilliant idea and the tension this causes on the cutscenes is pretty well-done. The gameplay takes the highlight, though. The endless combinations you can make from the 15-or-so mutants really keeps things fresh and you can upgrade each one of them to ridiculous degrees. If you don’t mind the obviously-dated graphics and the rather-simple gameplay, it is still addictive to play.
Platforms: PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Xbox, GameCube, Microsoft Windows, N-Gage, Java, IBM PC compatible

10. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
If you ever get bored from the normal Spider-Man, Shattered Dimensions can spice things up a bit for you since it features 4 entirely different Spider variations. The normal Spider-Man plays how you expect him to, the Ultimate Spider-Man is powerful and punish enemies way better, the Noir Spider-Man relies heavily on stealth and the Spider-Man 2099 can slow down time. Each have their unique moves and game worlds and this breaks the repetitiveness a lot of comic book games suffer from. None of the world is open, though, instead they are well-designed, condensed and linear missions but are packed with more note-worthy moments.
Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS, Microsoft Windows

Whether you want to experience a true next-generation Spider-Man or want to smash stuff with Hulk, we compiled a list of the best Marvel video games of all time for every Marvel and action game fan.
