Marvel Powers United VR makes me feel like a superhero, but fails to give exciting or varied enough missions to put my skills to the test. While the characters and environment successfully showcase the personality of Earth's mightiest heroes, repetitive gameplay and lackluster rewards stop Powers United short of being marvelous.

I can't stress enough how bombastically arcadey Marvel Powers United VR is. If you're looking for an epic sprawling all-star experience this isn't it, but I hope this fun brawl-focused base eventually leads to that and continues to improve over time with the promised upcoming support. This is the kind of game that needs to be tweaked and sent off to every single VR headset imaginable to grow its audience (so that you can find games in six months), but for now it lives in the Oculus ecosystem.

Marvel Powers United VR feels like a game headed toward greatness, delivering a robust experience mirroring the standards of non-VR gaming. It comes up short, though, and leaves a good bit to be desired. The experience of embodying superheroes is a lot of fun at times, but the lack of variety sets it way back. There's a lot of potential here, so I hope the Sanzaru team fleshes out the game more over time.

For any long time Marvel fan, the sheer experience of being able to step into the shoes of your favorite heroes will be an amazing feeling. It’s clear that a lot of care and consideration went in to making you feel immersed as the character. Sadly, the incredible feeling of being a super hero is weighed down by repetitive and imbalanced gameplay.
