I have just finished this fairly old game twice so that I could play both the Anti-Reg and the Pro-Reg stories (which, truth be told, are very similar). On the first run of the game, I chose Anti-Reg (Captain America's team), and uncovered every character except the Hulk which is a special character.
There are three special characters which can only be obtained by finding special tokens:
- For Thor you have to find 5 of the 10 Asgardian Runes to play as him.
- For Jean Grey you have to find 5 of the 10 M'Kraan Crystals to play as her.
- And for Hulk, you have to find 5 of the 10 Gamma Regulator to play as him.
Most characters (with the exception of Nick Fury) have a different costume which can be obtained after defeating 50 characters. Some of the characters' costumes are obtained through choosing either Anti-reg or Pro-reg: like choosing Anti-reg and getting a new suit for Captain America, or choosing Pro-reg and getting a new suit for Iron man.
The characters that you can get new suits for if you choose Pro-reg:
- Iron man
- Mr Fantastic
- Ms. Marvel
The characters that you can get new suits for if you choose Anti-reg:
- Captain America
- Invisible Woman
- Human Torch
- Iron Fist
- Luke Cage
The rest of the characters' suits (as seen below) can be unlocked at any time after choosing either side of the Civil War:
- The Thing
- Jean Grey
- Green Goblin
Overall, I think that this game is one of my favourite games that I have ever played, nearly as good as the original game (which I played with my brother and Old Man Geek when I was younger) as this game closely followed the Secret Wars and Civil War story (except for the-SPOILER ALERT- Nanite control attack) whereas the first game didn't really follow a story and just had a load of different Boss battles. I would highly recommend this game as it has some amazing gameplay and a fascinating story line.
