I received Marvel Nemesis: Rise Of The Imperfects (PSP) for Christmas and it is one of my favourite games. The game is an arena game where you fight in an area and have to win 2 rounds to go on to the next opponent. You may play as either a villain or hero which determines if you will fight heroes or villains. There are 10 characters to defeat until you have completed the campaign mode with that character and you unlock either a villain if you played a hero or a villain if you played as a hero. I found the arena style much enjoyable than some of my other games which are the classic run around and fight enemies. I found the game is enjoyable but it is repetitive and once you have unlocked all the characters you have nothing really to aim for. However the game makes up for this with a quick play mode where you can select a character you have unlocked and fight any other characters you have unlocked in an arena of your choice allowing you to fight the fights you want. If you have read this far down and want to know if you should buy this game then i would say that if you like games without much story where you just fight your enemies one on one then buy it! If you want to play as a super hero/villain game with just one goal, to defeat your enemy and fight the next one then buy this game! I'm not saying this game is perfect because its not. It's repetitive but it's still good. I think my money was well spent and hope this longer than I intended review helps.
I have this for the PS2 and thought it would make a great game for the PSP. Sadly however this is quite different from the PS2 version. Whereas the PS2 version does have some element of variation with different levels with different goals to achieve, this is just a straight forward three round fighting game. Its pretty good in small doses, but I can see it getting boring.
