- Buggy as hell. Several times I got physically stuck or a boss fight trigger never happened and I couldn't continue. Starting the level over sucks.
- Confusing at first. There are a few standard interactive points that certain classes of character must hit. Until you learn what those are it is maddening. Furthermore, there are a some obvious interactive points that you CANT hit in story mode because you don't have the right character. Those are intended to be done later in free play mode with different characters.
- Help text sometimes is helpful, most of the time not. Always distracting, and is laid out badly on my ultrawide monitor (props for supporting that res though)
- If there are two players and only two characters in a level, you can't switch. I spent a bunch of time at first swapping controls for players 1 and 2.

+ TONS of classic Marvel characters, each with fun dialog and powers.
+ Cartoony violence and the fact that you can't actually die or lose any progress makes this game perfect for young gamers.
+ The main story line is a good length and spans many locations and playable characters.
+ There is lots extended play through side quests in New York City and replaying levels in free play mode to collect all the secrets.

This game was lots of fun to play with my young son, and I would recommend it for kids. There were a few areas that were confusing and I wouldn't expect a less experienced gamer to figure out on their own.

I'll probably buy other Lego games, but full price is too high for these. Wait for a sale.

-Individualized movesets for the characters, plenty of wink-nods at the comics and movies
-Lots of attention to detail
-Impossibly huge roster
-Huge open world, relatively fast loading screens

-Weird glitches here and there, character select is quirky
-Game-breaking glitch at the end of the Lady Liberty level, cross your fingers
-Car controls are not great; toy car controls are Hulk rage-inducing
-Flying is awesome but also controls like a shopping cart
-No Aya from GLTAS

That said I was able to drive down the sidewalk in an ambulance as Captain America.

10/10 would simulate American health care system again.

Lego Marvel Superheroes was my dream come true lego game. I always wished that there were a lego game about Lord of The Rings and a Marvel lego game after playing Lego Star Wars, because I really liked the relaxed and easy-to-access gameplay style. And then, multiple Lego games later, including Lord of The Rings, it is finally here. After multiple iterations, has the gameplay changed enough to justify the purchase?
Let's start with the controls. This is my first time playing a Lego game on a keyboard(I do not own a gamepad, sadface). The Lego franchise was definently made for controllers, which I definently noted playing this game. The default controls for moving and doing actions worked fine on a keyboard. My only problems with moving were with the flying in the free-roam section. The flyinf races were just plain annoying to do and caused lots of frustration. I accidentaly kept dropping out of the flying mode while trying to adjust my flight course. But the biggest problem with the controls were the camera controls. The default camera controls were really awkward to use, especially while fighting. I pretty much had to stop either moving or fighting to adjust my camera. This problem is resolved by using a controller, so it's not that big of a deal, but it's still not nice.
The gameplay is the same as in the previous Lego games. You control multiple characters do solve light puzzles and fight goons and villains. Which there is alot. I mean a lot, since there is a 100+ characters to play as. Many of the characters have special abilities to solve puzzles, such as Iron Mans rockets to blow up silver legos, Spider-Mans spider-sense to find hidden stuff and the list goes on. The game captures the feel of the characters through different animations and abilities, which is awesome. Mr. Fantastics animations are a definite plus. This game also includes the new Big-Figs, which include Hulk, Juggernaut, The Thing etc. They have their own things only they can do, which is indicated by green handles. They are a nice inclusion, and fit nicely to the regular sized figures.
The game ofcourse has a ton of collectibles, which are fun to collect. You could say it's addictive. Those are going to take most of your time, since the campaign isn't all that long if you turbo through that, like I did.
In the end, the game is lots of fun to play. I didn't notice any bugs or glitches, which I cannot say for the previous lego game, Lord of The Rings. Experienced a lot of bugs with that game, so it was nice to have a smooth experience with this game. The game doesn't require that much to run smoothly, so pretty much everyone can play this excellent game. It is just pure fun.
The game is really solid, and you should buy it, especially if you like Lego games, or the Marvel license.
PS. This is my first review ever, so apologies if there is any rambling or repetition, for I wrote off the top of my head. Thank you for reading :)

I originally got this game for my children. And then I shoved them aside and played through the game myself, cause I was hooked. I grew up loving both Legos and Marvel. This is a fantastic merger of both.

- This game has a lighthearted storyline that doesn't take itself too seriously.
- The antics and quips made by the characters are humorous and satiristically appropriate.
- Kid appropriate means that I can sit down with my children for an hour or two to 'bond.'
- Marvel.

- Gameplay is typical of most lego games; get coins, find gold/red bricks, unlock characters.

- It does get a bit repetative sometimes; gameplay and 'flavor' dialogue.
- There are a few bugs still in the game. Though they don't crop up all that often, it is annoying to have to quit a level simply because the bug prevented your advance.
- Flight controls were terrible (or I'm old, and just don't get it).

Definitely not what I was expecting. I got this game for my 5 yr old, It's the first video game I've bought with him in mind, he has not shown any interest in any of the games I play, so i decided to buy something for him specifically. I played the first few missions to see if it would be something he'd be able to figure out easily.

I finished the first 3 stages and thought the game was pretty good and my son might enjoy it. Little did i know that the first 3 levels were just appetizers and was barely getting into the main course. The game becomes an open world game with plenty of things to do. The city (New York) is pretty big, and tons of things to do and characters to collect (Seriously, there are a tons of characters to collect). You can go through out the city and complete mini missions to help out citizens, you get driving time trials and help out Stan Lee a bunch of times!

After seeing how the game opened up, I had no doubt my kid would enjoy the game. So i handed him the controller and let him fly around as Iron Man, he immediately loved it, he was having fun. He got the hang of it pretty quick, figured out he had to double jump to start flying, and once he was flying how to ascend and descend, still needs some work with shooting targets, but he was managing. I then let him try the Hulk, he showed little interest and switched back to Iron Man. Can't blame him, because the Hulk is a lame-o. lol. Then I switched him over to Spider Man, he loved it more than Iron Man. He played for an hour straight before I cut him off...... because it was MY TURN. lol.

So far i am 13 hrs deep and have not even proceeded to start level 4. Highly recommended even if you don't have kids.

When someone mentions the word LEGO in a game title, I'm sure most people will think this is a game just for little kids. They could not be further from the truth. The LEGO games are actually fun for pretty much all ages, due to the reference material they use. We've had LEGO games ranging from Star Wars to Harry Potter to Batman, and more. And now we move on to something odd. Marvel Super Heroes. I say odd, because this is a WB game. WB which owns the rights to publish DC related stuff. DC which is a rival company of Marvel. And Marvel, which is now owned by Disney. So this is indeed an dd pairing. Traveler's Tales are just such big fans of Marvel (and who can blame them) that they wanted this to be made. And here it is. And here is probably the best LEGO game to date. A labor of love from fans of Marvel, made for fans of Marvel.

LMSH is a completely original story in the Marvel universe, which borrows characters from the Marvel movie universe and also the comic universe. In fact, it has a roster so massive, it is the biggest roster of any LEGO game to date. You'll find all of your favorites, ranging from the Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Blade, Daredevil, Spider-Man, and more, and even an assortment of odd picks like Howard the Duck (who even has his own achievement) and more. Of course what's a superhero game without supervillains. So yes, you can play as a number of baddies as well. Normal sized characters have normal LEGO scaling, and the big bruisers like The Incredible Hulk, Colossus, and others have been turrned into bigger LEGO characters called "big figs". And your larger than life characters like Galactus have been given the normal mini fig versions when you want to play as them.

LMSH features a msssive hub world recreation of comic and real world fused Manhattan, complete with a wide assortment of side missions, challenges, and unlockables to discover along the way. You can run, jump, fly, or ride vehicles to get around the city at your own leisure. and when not tackling main story missions, there is a ton of things to do. Even after tackling the main story, you will find so many things to unlock, from characters to vehicles and new mission. Some things will warrant replays through missions with different characters, shooting replayability through the roof.

As for gameplay, LMSH offers the most refined combat of any lego game to date, mixed with the usual puzzle solving based on character powers. It's fun, varied, and easily the most satisfying in the series. The game also puts a huge emphasis on combat more than any LEGO game to date.

My only complaints on this game are the unispired soundtrack, which pales in comparison to previous LEGO games. And also the character creator. It's sloppy. It lacks full customization. And unless you want to unlock a couple of achievements, is completely unnecessary.

- Biggest roster to date
- Best moveset to date for individual characters
- Big fig characters!
- So much content packed in. Even after completing the game, there is so much to do.

- Boring soundtrack
- Character creator is not good

I got super hyped for this game when was announced, and I first got it on the X-Box 360. I was a big fan of Marvel and I still am now. But I didn't make much progress and eventually, I played it less and less and forgot about it. Recently, I thought about picking the game back up, but I couldn't find it. Fortunately, I noticed that this game was on Steam, and I bought it with both the DLC'S, and I got 100% in 8 days.

Plot... (I'm trying to remember the story, so I might not get everything correct)
The story of the game is that Dr. Doom captures the Silver Surfer and wants to use pieces his broken board to build his Doom Ray of Doom. Unfortunately for him, the pieces are scattered across NYC. Many different supervillains are on Doom's side as they try to collect the pieces, but SHIELD and its heroes are trying to stop him. In the end, Loki turns on Doom and uses mind control to make Galactus devour Earth. He is quickly stopped by a large group of superheroes (and villains) as Loki and Galactus are sent through a portal to deep space.

The Lego games have a distinct style of gameplay. You play a level the first time only as specific characters, but replaying the levels as anyone can help you find secrets. This is because some areas can only be accessible as certain types of characters, which might not be in the level the first time. I kind of like this, as it has more replay value to it. The graphics are also nice and it is cool seeing famous Marvel icons in Lego form. The vast selection of playable heroes and villains makes a Marvel fan like me very happy. In the other Lego games, nobody talks. This is because in something like Lego Star Wars, the plot of the game is the same as the movies. However, in this game, (since they are not basing the plot on a specific movie or book) the characters talk. The voices are pretty good as well, but I'll talk more about that in a second. One of my favorite things about the game is Stan Lee. He appears all over the game and needs to be rescued around NYC and all the levels, and if you save him from everything, you unlock him.

Cons... (Mostly just nitpicking)
-Repeated voices in the NYC map can be really annoying at times
-Deadpool is annoying and his voice does not match his character (Marvel Ultimate Alliance Deadpool is funny and his voice matches perfectly)
-The web-swinging as Spider-Man, Venom, ect is difficult and frustrating
-Having to get all the gold bricks can easily become boring
-When I first got this game, my biggest problem was that Nightcrawler was not included, and he was my favorite Marvel character (mostly because I like his design)
-My biggest problem with the game now, is that some of the characters either do the exact same thing as other characters, or do absolutely nothing, (Mary Jane Watson, Gwen Stacy, Destroyer Minifig, Aunt May, Mini Sentinel, ect.)
-Sometimes, the game will stump you by being unbelievably cryptic, (or maybe I'm just an idiot)

Overall, it has its flaws it could improve on, but I still found it fun. 8/10

This is a game that will throw in all sorts of dumb comedy going back to the 60s Fantastic Four cartoon, made by clear fans who are willing to get tongue in cheek with the silliness of Marvel and Legos.

But it's still a Lego game, so if you hate those, ignore this, it won't change your mind.

As much as I wanted to enjoy this game it was just too child-like. It's like a child's game and I only recommend it for kids up to the age of about thirteen. Having said that it looks quite well made and the gameplay feels o.k. I'm just too old for it (I'm an adult). Nonetheless I will give it a positive rating because it is a good game for kids.
