Fantastic Four (2005 video game)

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Fantastic Four is a 2005 action video game based on the film of the same name. It had Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis and Julian McMahon returning to voice their characters in the game. While the game got mixed reviews, fans considered it better than the film for being more adventurous and having more elements from the comics.

Tropes used in Fantastic Four (2005 video game) include:
  • Big Bad: Doctor Doom.
  • Bonus Level: Levels set in Latveria with retro skins can be unlocked by progressing the game.
  • Co-Op Multiplayer: The game lets up to two players play as the Fantastic Four.

  • How We Got Here: The game starts off with Ben at the cosmic storm machine and goes to the story's true beginning.

  • Truer to the Text: The game is more in line with the comics than the Storyverse itself.
