What then is my conclusion? If you are a serious fan of card battle games, this is an excellent game to look into buying, as it likely has everything you would look for in such a game. If you are not a serious fan of card battle games, I’d start out with something simpler, such as the aforementioned DragonballZ: Harukanaru Densetsu, or just avoid the genre altogether. If you aren’t sure how you’d feel about a game like this, rent it or borrow it from somebody who has it before laying down too much money to buy it.

If there is one thing Marvel Trading Card Game does really well with, it is in giving gamers and Marvel fans their full money’s worth. Considering each battle can stretch out to a half-hour or more, rabid card battlers can find hours upon hours of gameplay within the palm-sized cartridge. And that’s just the single player mode. Add in the online head-to-head, and the game has almost infinite replay value.

With its good implementation of the well-known Vs. System, Marvel Trading Card Game will make those who've already got a taste for TCGs quite happy, and it makes pretty good use of the Marvel license on top of that. It's a step up in sophistication from the Yu-Gi-Oh! games that Konami has been churning out for years. Still, it's a shame that the game's depth gets in the way of its accessibility to a wider audience.

There is something here for the real fan of collectible card games, to be sure, and hardcore Marvel maniacs will enjoy seeing everyone from Spider-Man to Super Skrull in card form. Everyone else should probably stay clear.

Konami avait toutes les cartes en main pour assurer un jeu à la hauteur de son sujet. Mais les règles confuses (qui reprennent celles du vrai jeu de cartes) et la jouabilité totalement à l'ouest suffisent pour dégoûter les joueurs. Je demande une minute de silence pour le pauvre gamin à qui la grand-mère vient d'acheter la cartouche après avoir vu Spider-Man sur la jaquette.
