The screen grabs can be found at the end of this article along with a fact sheet on the game provided by the publisher. "Fantastic Four" will be released this Sumemr for the Playstation 2, XBox, Game Cube and on the PC and is rated "T" for Teen (mild language and violence).

The only game based on 20th Century Fox's upcoming feature film, Fantastic Four is a team based action adventure in which players harness the Marvel superheroes' unique and amazing powers through a compelling single-player mode or two-player co-operative gameplay experience. Authored by Zak Penn, the writer of the movie X2: X-Men United, the game's storyline follows the Fantastic Four movie plot and expands the adventures by letting players stretch, control fire and use invisibility and brute force to defeat evil super-villains in new environments and familiar comic book locales. Challenged to master each super hero's individual powers and combine them to level even more devastating attacks, players must battle the never-before-seen enemies and the ultimate evil - Doctor Doom -- to save the human race from disaster.
