Marvel Snap packs bold ideas, deep gameplay, a punchy presentation and lots of love for Marvel. Its approach to building a collection and randomness in gameplay won't be for everyone, but it's still well worth playing.

"Marvel Snap is designed for a generation of players too distracted to keep track of an overly complicated metagame"

The version that exists now out on app stores of all kinds feels blessedly free of heavy-handed monetization, but apparently, this wasn't always the case during the game's beta period. The resulting change feels good, really; I've played a couple of Japanese mobile gachas for years and Marvel Snap is a (Tony?) stark contrast to what goes on in that particular corner of game design.

The best thing about Marvel Snap is that it requires so little effort to play yet has brilliant strategic depth. Matches are so quick that you'll rarely feel the sting of disappointment upon defeat, while each win pushes you towards the next card reveal. Like any live service game, it's constantly evolving with balance patches a roadmap teasing new content and features. Let's just hope we'll see the developers lessen the grind and give players more ways to unlock their favourite Marvel heroes and villains in future.

In spite of some growing pains, Marvel Snap is fantastic and a marvelous first effort from the folks at Second Dinner. Like Marvel itself, it should be fun to see how it grows going forward.

Marvel has become a juggernaut because it delivers a simple, good time with just enough twists and eye candy to hold your attention for a couple of hours. Marvel Snap is exactly that in the form of a mobile game.

Marvel Snap is a highly polished and impeccably designed game that is going to grow and flourish for years to come. It feels early access in a lot of ways thanks to some missing and underbaked features, but the core is rock solid. Collecting cards is fun, building decks is easy, and matches only last a couple of minutes. It’s the perfect on-the-go game, and my favorite CCG right now.

With accessible gameplay and addictive mechanics, Marvel Snap is one of those free-to-play gems on smartphones and PCs. Other qualities of this great card game include the beautiful visuals and effects, all creatively inspired by the Marvel comics universe. It's a shame that we only have one way to enjoy the games, but there's nothing to fear: with a very solid foundation, the future is promising and the sky is the limit for this great game.

With simple rules that you only need a few minutes to understand, Marvel Snap successfully delivers a compact, but full of fun deck-building experience. Though it seems many aspects of the game is based on randomness, that would not bother you that much since you can finish each game in about 3-minutes.

I’m surprised a mobile game can be this good, without reaching for the wallet. I have concerns about the battle pass, but those can wait for another day. Marvel Snap is out now, and the reality is, it’s stellar. Play it on iOS or Android, or try an early access version for PC via Steam (widescreen support is coming soon). Thanos might be bad, but this snap is damn good.
