The best Avengers games arrive just in time to save the Earth. The group of Marvel superheroes made up of Captain America, Ironman, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Mercury, Scarlet Witch, Vision and, after Civil War, Spider-Man, did not want to miss the opportunity to kick ass also in a good number of video games.
Avengers this, Avengers that… With so many movies, the Avengers are even in the soup! But what are the best Avengers games?

And if you have your room papered with Captain America posters and you sleep in Ironman pajamas… Get together and enjoy the best Avengers games!
12. AVENGERS INITIATIVE (iOS, Android)
Avengers Initiative is basically Avengers copying the Infinity Blade formula. It’s an entertaining game that, due to the scarcity of characters and little variation in development, ends up getting boring after two or three games. But just by participating in the Hulk vs. Hulkbuster that we saw in Age of Ultron is worth a look.
11. MARVEL BATTLE OF SUPERHEROES (iOS, Android)
One of the latest Marvel games to reach mobile devices is Marvel Battle of Champions, and invites us to participate in combats between practically all the characters in the House of Ideas, with the excuse that the Collector has organized a tournament to put test the greatest champions on Earth. Large number of characters, PvP, spectacular combats… A pity that the development is spoiled by the ever-present (in free to play game) stamina.
10. MARVEL: AVENGERS ALLIANCE (PC, iOS, Android)
Marvel Avengers Alliance started as a Facebook game, but its huge success has brought it to mobile devices. And it is not for less, because we are facing a kind of mixture between the Marvel universe and the turn-based combat of the Final Fantasy saga .
9. THE AVENGERS: BATTLE FOR EARTH (Xbox 360, Wii U)
The fights in Avengers: Battle for Earth were created with Kinect in mind , and it actually managed to make very good use of the Xbox 360 device. Unfortunately, the lack of variety in the fights ends up making them repetitive sooner than usual. that we would like… But they look spectacular, everything is said.
8. DISNEY INFINITY 2.0: MARVEL SUPER HEROES (PS3, PS4, 360, One, Wii U, PC, Vita, iOS)
Although many raised their hands to their heads when they found out that Disney had bought Marvel, the truth is that the agreement is giving all superhero fans a lot of joy.
7. AVENGERS IN GALACTIC STORM (Arcade)
The Avengers have loved to fight each other since time immemorial, and a good proof of this is Avengers in Galactic Storm, a game for arcade machines from 1995. It will not go down in history as the best fighting game with Marvel characters (Marvel vs. Capcom ahem…), but it was the first to include ‘assistants’, something that has been copied over and over again ever since.
6. MARVEL SUPER HEROES: WAR OF THE GEMS (Super Nintendo)
A year later, in 1996, he reached Super Nintendo Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems , which, as its name suggests, is based on the events of The Infinity Gauntlet (the same ones we will see in Avengers: Infinity War). Using Spider-Man, Cap, Ironman, Hulk or Wolverine, we must fight our way through legions of enemies until we reach Thanos and prevent him from using the Infinity Stones to dominate the universe.
5. MARVEL HEROES 2015 (PC)
When Marvel Heroes hit the market, it failed to convince Marvel fans, let alone fans of online A-RPGs. However, last year it was completely revamped, adding the tagline 2015 to the end of the title, and it became one of the best online games the Marvel universe has ever known.
4. CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE AVENGERS (Arcade, Super Nintendo, Mega Drive, NES, Game Boy, Game Gear)
Classic among classics! This beat ’em up (with the occasional shooting phase) that allowed us to put ourselves in the shoes of Captain America, Ironman, Hawkeye and the Vision is still as fun as before. As usual, the arcade version is the best of all those made (the NES version, specifically, was a completely different game), but there were two different ones: one for two players and another for four.
3. MARVEL SUPER HEROES (Arcade, Saturn, PlayStation, PSN/XBLA)
And we made it to the podium! And what better way to do that than with Marvel Super Heroes, the sequel to X-Men: Children of the Atom and the precursor to none other than Marvel vs. Capcom. However, this title focuses solely on characters from the House of Ideas and uses the Infinity Gauntlet story as its premise.
2. LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES (PS3, PS4, 360, One, Wii U, PC, Vita, DS, 3DS, iOS, Android)
A giant New York to roam freely. More than a hundred characters recreated with an attention to detail that borders on the sick. And LEGO pieces. LEGO pieces everywhere. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is everything a Marvel fan could want from a video game based on the comics/movies and much, much more. Even if you hate LEGO bricks, give it a try, we guarantee you won’t regret it.
1. MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE (All)
Wow, yes, Marvel Ultimate Alliance also took first place in Best Marvel Games , but it is SO good that we have no choice but to repeat. We are talking about the game that has probably made the best use of the license to date, full of nods to comic book fans and with a quantity of content that kept us glued to the screen for months and months.
