Its the only good recent Lego game. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the lego games. But recently they seem to be being very lazy with their games. But this one is actually original. They've done their own story and audio rather than choosing a film, making the scenes lego and cutting the audio straight from the film which takes away all that glorious lego comedy. So good I actually 100% it. If you're after a lego game that still have some of the OG style than this is the one for you... Stay clear of Lego Jurassic World.

Great game
I reccomend it to people who liked the other lego games
My only complaint is that the gameplay is kind of repetitive
It's a lot like the other lego games.
But if you are new to the lego franchise then I definitly recomend it.

Sort of OK, but the timed racing games are terrible - I have 5 gold bricks left to get - one is in the dockyard and the other is between two tall towers, not sure on the others yet, Controlling a flying character with a controller is fecking useless, when you make one mistake, or turn in the wrong direction, really pisses me off,ggggggrrrrrrrr. other than that not a bad game, music's ok, va can be funny at times. Can't believe it, 5 more gold bricks to collect :( got everything sodding else.

Just 100%ed this game. Personally, I absolutely loved it. Great game, like most LEGO games in my opinion.

If you're contemplating getting the game, however are turned off by the reviews telling you that you need a controller, well I played the entire game without one and honestly it worked competely fine. I just mapped WASD to movement, space to jump, and num keys 8, 4, 5, and 6 to tag, attack, map, and special ability respectively. Sure it's not as smooth as a controller would be, but it gets the job done.

If you like LEGO games and Marvel, get the game.

This game is like a double edged sword. For one the the game is well optimized for my potato PC and the voice acting is good. The gameplay is a Lego game so don't expect Dark Souls difficulty but it is still fun. If you are a completionist this game is well worth it because there are so many charecters and such to collect. Overall I give this game a 8/10.
Good if you like Lego or Marvel and good if you have younger siblings or kids.

I found this game to be quite enjoyable. I played this game co-op with my sister and we had a blast. There's a crazy amount of Marvel characters to unlock in this game. What you need to do to progress is not always apparent. Look for things to build or switches to push/pull if you get stuck. There's some light QTE stuff, but they don't require you to mash your brains out or anything just a little light repetition there. If you like same screen co-op and you have a buddy or kids around it's a good game to play. Just pop in a couple of usb xbox 360 controllers and have fun.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes probably ticks all of the boxes when it comes to gameplay:
- Well designed levels
- A unique storyline
- Mild Humour
- Excellent Replayability
- Numerous characters and collectables
- A vast open world
- Spiderman (Of Course)

Absolutely 11/10 would hero again.

Okay fun.

Okay VERY fun.

Okay VERY VERY fun.

Make sure you have a controller. I can't stress that enough.

There's nothing deep or compelling in the story but you aren't playing for that, are you? It's silly enjoyment "HULK SMASH", flying around as Iron Man and wiggling your bottom over obstacles as Black Widow. And Venom, Ah yes, the nefarious joy of Venom.

If you're looking for some simple child-like comic book joy... this game is it. The visuals are pretty stunning too considering they're made up of Lego bits. Asgaard was surpisingly beautiful. And have fun in New York running over everything like you're playing GTA without the bloodshed.

Go have some fun :D

This game is so much fun I got this for my xbox and unlocked all characters and played so much of it. I now prefer playing games on my computer so I got this game yesterday I love this game the free roam is so much fun this game is like grand theft auto for kids or lego grand theft auto either one works. Also for my xbox i got all dlcs the only one that is worth it is the super one not the asgard that one is not worth it. Overall I rate this game a 9.5/10 and the only reason i didn't give it 10 was because you can't kill civilians which sucks.

Let me start by saying that this is a fantastic game. I want to get that out of the way, as I'm sure that my review will have several negative points in it. That being said, this game does much more right than it does wrong. If you've played a LEGO game before, you know what to expect from this title. It follows the formula laid out by previous LEGO games, but does it so much better due to the expanded amount of content available in the Marvel universe. The story is much longer and much more diverse than previous titles, and the number of characters and playstyles available to the user is amazing. That being said, a game this large is bound to be hampered by technical difficulties. In my time playing this game, I experienced the following: the game crashing, players getting physically stuck and the game requiring a reboot, items/events on the New York map not appearing and requiring a reboot, etc. All of these experiences detracted from the overall product, but I think it's telling that they served to only take away from the overall experience and not define it. The last point that needs to be made is that if you play this single player, your AI partner will be incredibly dumb and basically useless. Seriously, if you play single player the enemy AI will be better than your partner AI and your partner will constantly get their ♥♥♥ kicked. It's embarrassing to watch a random trash mob kick the crap out of a brand name super hero, but that's a reality in this game. This is a great game and I would rank it an 8.5. That being said, if you're planning on playing it solo I would give it an 8.0; and if you have a comic book loving friend who is willing to play through coop with you, I would give it a 9.0.

Short Review
Great game. Fun Open World, Cool Charcters most of us will know, fun levels and worth the money. Better than the Avengers edition of the game. Voice actors are good, but not the same as the ones in the movies. Controlls can be wierd and has a some bugs .Save system is wonky, but you figure ot out eventually. Great game.

Long Review
Great game. The Open World is by far the strongest feature. NYC is full of hidden places to explore and has so many things to do, find, and enjoy. I cannot stress this ebough. If you like open world games, this game is great for that. Compared to games like Skyrim of the Witcher 3, the world is a little small, but it still decent size on its own and is jam packed full of stiff to do and characters to unlock. Even if you beat the game, the open world is a fun place to run around, destroy things, ride cars of bikes, and just have fun. The storyline is OK, albeit a bit short (15 levels), but the levels are long, and you can save at specific parts in the level. It is a bit buggy and the controls can be a bit goofy and cramped. The best way to play is with a controller, or spacing out the WASD movement keys from the action keys. Otherwise, it feels like your hands are cramped together. If you are not a Marvel nerd and dont know all the heros and villians, dont worry. The game isn't really full of random heros. If you have seen any modern day Avengers or X men movies, you will be mostly fine. There will be some characters you do not know, but it doesnt detract from the game. The game does a really nice job of blancing heros and villains in the story, and playble ones. The more common ones are used in the storyline, and the more obscure ones are used in free play annd are unlockable. And if you are a Marvel Superfan, it does have easter eggs, hints, and other things you will enjoy as well. Extra levels and usage of the gold brick make this game have even more replayability. Deadpool and Stan Lee cameo a lot, adding to the funny atmostphere of the game. The chrarcters, while not voiced by the actors from the modern day movies, still are well voiced, and drop a lot of puns and jokes, customary to all lego games. The fact that it is a Lego game makes it even better. Definetly worth the money and better than the Avengers edition of the game.

If you've ever played a Lego game before, you know what to expect. Fight enemies, break stuff, build stuff, solve minor puzzles, beat level, repeat. It's simple but addictive, especially with all the hidden stuff in every level. There's a large "overworld" where you can basically play Lego GTA in New York only without the lego cops coming after you for smashing things, attacking people or stealing cars. The characterizations are cartoony and a bit tongue in cheek but still spot on for the personalities of the characters and combat... Oh my god, how on Earth did they manage to make combat in a Lego game feel closer to how the characters would actually fight than in ANY other comic based game I've ever played? Hulk flings people around, Spider-Man does web slinging antics, Black Widow does ridiculously cool moves... Excellent job. The graphics aren't going to blow anyone away but what impressed me was how amazingly well this game plays with the graphics settings cranked all the way up on my graphics card that has a hard time playing newer games AT ALL. As always, the button mapping on keyboard is really weird. This game was clearly made for consoles as you can't type anything when you'd expect to. You also have to use unusual buttons for confirming and cancelling selections. Definitely play with a controller and not a keyboard. Overall, fun game if you like Marvel and the Lego games at all.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes is an action adventure game developed by TT games and published by Warner Brothers, releasing in 2013 on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One, and of course, PC and Mac.

Game play is similar to that of other Lego titles, you are able to take control of around 150 characters straight out of the Marvel Universe, and each of them have their own abilities. Each of the game’s levels consist of a series of puzzles which use specific characters special abilities, as well as breaking objects to them build other items to help you traverse the environment. In between each level, you enter a free roam type area around the streets of New York. The free roam contains opportunities to complete small side missions which are narrated by none other than Deadpool. When in the main missions, there are a few side actives to complete too as well, which include Marvel co-creator, Stan Lee; this segment of the game is called “Stan Lee in Peril”.

The graphics in Marvel Super Heroes is very much the same as other Lego games, you will find it very hard to fault the visual department of this game; it looks colourful, animated to perfection, everything in the game is made out of Lego, so it has that childish charm that is just gorgeous. There is a wide range of resolution options, but a lack of any other graphical choices, other than texture quality which still only has two levels, high and low.

There is really no difficulty in the game, there is no penalty for dying, since you just respawn straight away, you will be stumped for ideas on a few of the puzzles and you will just have to experiment with your characters in order to progress. The boss fights are all uniquely challenging and offer various different waves of battle for you to learn.

The game’s level design is perfect; there is an in game “brick counter” which you can fill up by breaking other Lego objects in game for other smaller bricks. I played the game with my partner and we made it our aim to fill this counter on each level, this adds another challenge to the game, and lets you have the satisfaction of breaking tons of Lego and collecting thousands of smaller bricks. On top of this, there are also plenty of small Easter eggs too, which the odd appearance from Deadpool (who doesn’t appear as a main character in the story).

We finished the game in just under nine hours on co-op mode with collecting 100% of the bricks on each stage. What makes the Lego games repayable is that after you complete a level, you have the free play option unlocked – this means you can play as any character on that stage to unlock special areas for more side missions and collectables. Whilst on the subject of collectables, there are so many to find! On top of the regular cast of characters, there are over 100 more to find and discover whilst completing side quests, achievements, and finding items. Complentionists will have a field day with this game.

Sadly we did run into a few technical problems during our play through. The main one being one of the levels just freezes all of the time; this is a known bug and the only way you can progress is purely by restarting the level and hoping you are lucky – thankfully this bug is right at the start of the stage, so you don’t lose much progress. Another issue we ran into was fairly annoying, in that characters can sometimes get stuck in the environment, this isn’t too bad if you are able to kill the character with another player, but sometimes this isn’t possible so the only way you can get around the issue is by restarting the level; this can sometimes be painstakingly annoying if you are right at the end of a stage. We did have a positive experience both using a 360 controller and the Steam controller to play though. I would strongly recommend anyone picking this game up to use either of the two controller options.

I have come to the conclusion that Lego really make fantastic games; and Marvel Super Heroes is no different. You have two of the biggest franchises in the world today and combined them; you have a recipe for success straight away. We had such a blast whilst playing and I would strongly recommend Lego Marvel Super Heroes to any fans of Marvel or Lego out there. The regular price of £14, 99 is spot on as well. If you can get it any cheaper, do not hesitate to pick it up, you won’t be disappointed.

Tom's Score Card
1) Stay away
2) Not Recommended
3) Only recommended when on sale
4) Recommended
5) Highly recommended
6) This is a must play
