- Variety & Replayability: With four distinct villains to defeat, players will find it necessary to continuously adapt their strategies and teamwork efforts, ensuring that no two games are the same.
- Challenge Scaling: Some players have claimed that the game’s difficulty scaling is not as well-tuned as they would like. If you’re searching for an intense, hardcore challenge, this might not be your top pick.
