This is a freemium game review, in which we give our impressions immediately after booting a game up, again after three days, and finally after seven days. That's what the strange sub-headings are all about.
When I was growing up, I didn't have many friends. I'll just pause for your sympathetic "awww"s to quieten down.
Everything's fine now, but those were dark times. I attribute getting through my early teenage years to two things: playing lots of video games, and reading Marvel's comic books.
They were - and still are - filled with troubled youngsters finding their way in the world, coping with the new responsibilities that come with maturity and new-found powers. Peter Parker and Peter Willington were rarely separated.
If you know your Stan Lee from your Stanley Carter, there's a lot to like in the collection of these beautiful cards, and the math grinding will appeal to the Excel-obsessed. But those looking for an accessible battler will be best served elsewhere
