    Overall this is a book that I urge many readers out there to pick up. Never mind who will die or who you might never see again. Care for those that get that treatment and chance to prove who they really are when the opportunity presents itself. The layout of the story remains arcade-like, the art makes you feel that emotion poured into the story, and in the end it keeps you engaged which is what counts most. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Jun 28, 2013

    This issue is very character focused, center on Hazmat and Reptil and how they're responding to their situation, and it very much underlines how well Hopeless understands these characters. Add in some excellent art from Burchielli " I really enjoyed how he handled Reptil vs. the Great Whites in the open " and this issue is one that keeps its forward momentum going while unifying some of the disparate parts of the book.

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Jun 26, 2013

    This issue is more of a set up for the conclusion of the 'Game On!' arc, yet it still manages to whip a little character development in there before the last page. Previews for the next issue reveal Nico's still alive in one way or another so it'll be interesting to see how her return effects everyone. And Chris Powell is still M.I.A. so I'm expecting him to come back and shake things up as well. Lots to look forward to in the conclusion to this arc. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jun 26, 2013

    This is somewhat of a "catch your breath" issue where the regrouped characters pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and assess the situation. They have a true villain amongst themselves in Apex, so the complexity of both their relationship with each other and with Arcade gets a new dynamic. This all forms around Hazmat's breakdown, which allows us to see these teens actually acting like heroes more so than we've seen thus far. Not in the saving someone from a burning building sense, but in the way that inspires others to do good by helping each other. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Ciaran Flanagan Jun 28, 2013

    The pace is slowed right down in comparison with recent issues so this issue is not up to the excellent standard that we've come to expect, but what is here is well written allowing Denis Hopeless to flesh out two of the most vanilla characters in The Marvel Universe. The stylised art is perfect for the storyline's vibe and there are enough dangling plot threads and unanswered questions left to ensure that this will remain on my pull list for the foreseeable future. Additionally the idea of Chase from Runaways as the new Darkhawk is such an awesome idea that I refuse to believe that it's not going to be taken away from me sooner rather than later.
