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

For a long time, whenever someone would ask which Traveller's Tales Lego game they should guess. I couldn't give them an answer. They were all about equal in quality, just pick one that is an ip you like. No longer, I can definitively say that Lego Marvel Super Heroes is the best Lego game Traveller's Tales has made to date.

It has the greatest variety of useful characters, the most activities, the largest world to explore, and just the best looking visuals and writing. It is also more challenging than most Lego games. Especially if you are going for 100% completion. There are some collectibles (and rescuables) that are quite the head scratcher. This is enhanced by the open world. Easily one of the best looking open worlds in this type of game. Clearly Traveller's Tales best most detailed open world. People on the street will often respond to whatever character you are controlling. Every place is properly detailed. It must have cost a lot to create it since they are reusing it for Lego Marvel Avengers. Lego City for the WiiU is a close second.

The game shows the staff at Traveller's Tales that worked on this game really loved Marvel comics. There were many deep references that casual fans, and Cinematic fans would miss but would delight long time fans. Not that you would need to be a long time fan. The entire game has plenty of clever writing, humor and sight gags to entertain fans and non fans a like.

Let me stress this isn't a perfect game. There are some glitches that happen from time to time. There is one area inside the Statue of Liberty where characters will often slide off platforms and to there deaths for no apparent reason. The driving and flying controls in the open world are particularly frustrating in race events. Nothing that kills the general game play or fun, but if you are trying for 100%, you will get frustrated sometimes.

Also if you are suffering from Lego game burnout, you might want to take a long break before playing this game because its easily the most Lego of all Traveller's Tales games. If you are ready for one, this is the one to get. At least until Lego Marvel Avengers or Lego Dimensions comes out.

As a big fan of the Lego Star Wars games, when I saw "Lego Marvel Superheroes" I was like "On snap, I'm about to get IN THERE." Since then, I've wrecked this game 100%, and now I'm here to talk about it.
Here are some of the things that I really liked about Lego Marvel:

1. The hub world of NYC is humungo-jumbo sized. It's filled with tons of missions to do and things to unlock. The Lego Star Wars hub areas are like little fluffy cupcakes compared to the sumo-sized birthday cake that is Lego Marvel's NYC hub. It's big and I like big things.

2. The character roster. Lego Marvel features 155 playable characters (not including DLC), as well as a big number of custom characters for you to create. They even have lesser-known heroes like Moon Knight and Squirrel Girl. The conclusion: the character roster is GODLIKE.

3. The main story and bonus Deadpool missions are good fun. The story has you playing as different characters all the time, and the villains plotting against you also change constantly. Just like the previous Lego games, the main story has some good content to keep you busy. I should also mention that co-op play is always available, and that is a MAJOR PLUS.

And here are some thing you might not like so much:

1. Keep in mind this game is aimed at younger audiences, so expect lots of simple beat'em up gameplay, simple puzzling, and corny dialogue. Some like it, but it isn't for everyone.

2. This game can be very glitchy. One time I was replaying the first level and The Sandman turned huge. I was about to spray him with water and DESTROY HIM, but instead of destroying him, he slowly sunk into the ground and glitched out of the map entirely. I had to restart the level in order to continue. I have also encountered bugs where hub world missions wouldn’t show up at times and I've even heard that freezes can be common. Bug-filled games really wound my soul, so be aware of this before purchasing.

At the end of the day, Lego Marvel is a pretty fun game. I recommend it especially to those who are fans of the Marvel universe or the past Lego games, and to the younger audience as well.

Overall, if Lego Marvel Super Heroes was a beverage, it would definitely be a tangy, chicken-flavored soda drink with an amusing aftertaste that leaves quite an impression. Thank you for reading.
