Like many, I have had my share of superhero fantasies. It seems like a lot of effort to try and save the world, however, and I have been more than happy to enjoy the fantasy through my gaming experiences. Ubisoft's PowerUp Heroes tries to get the player a little more involved in these fantasies, casting you in the role of Earth's savior and giving you an awesome array of powers to do it.
It looks like a game made for kids and, in a lot of ways, it definitely is. But PowerUp Heroes is also a rather capable -- if casual -- fighting game that deserves some attention.
