I like this game, don't get me wrong. It's just that LEGO Marvel Superheroes did a waaaay better job and it's hard not to think about the little details while you play... And the not so little like having one player be totally irrelevant while the other has to do all the work (I'm looking at you, invading Strucker's castle level!)

Sadly not Lego's finest hour in games. Could of been great but let down by badly and obviously cut n paste voices taken directly from the movies which makes them sound like they're recorded from a TV using an old tape recorder.
Controls, especially vehicles can be a bit clunky at times.

If you can look beyond that it is basically the same as most lego games, fun to play overall, but I'd suggest getting it when it is on Sale and heavily discounted. Like for $20 or less.

As much as I like the series the developers really need to pick up their game and get back to offering better quality, especially for the price they ask for titles on release, they could also try to change the game play to not be the same as every other lego games.
Been quite a while since there was any kind of technical advancements in the franchise.

So I recommend but only at a discount and if you're a fan of lego and marvel, if you're tired of the same old same old with Lego, then avoid.

Compared to other Lego games this one is bad for coop play.
It seems focussed mostly on single player.

A lot of cutscenes take the controls out of your hands, whishing you would rather have done the stuff in the cutscene yourself.
Actions from one player overrule the screen for the other player:
- Tony stark choosing different outfit is fullscreen, frustrating in free-play because the other person has to wait.
- some mini-games take over whole screen

Character abillities are not as diverse as with other Lego games.
- Hawkeye can break glass,gold and iron for example.
- Most characters are just people with/without guns

For some positives:
+ Hulk is awesome in this game
+ huge open world with lot's of stuff to do
+ Story is ok, following the avengers movies

But in all a bit dissapointed.
They have done better in the past with movie adoptations
If you go for lego game instead of super hero play these instead:
- Jurassic World
- Pirates ot Carribean
- LOTR/Hobbit

For super hero lego games first Batman and Marvel games are best.

Finished the main story, havent done any side quests or DLC's yet but from what i've played. I do reccomend it, if you liked the other Lego Marvel then this is one for you. Although the backgrounds are not really that lego-y anymore. It is full of comedy, Stan Lee, and a whole bunch of ice cream.

Assume to get lost a few times as it is not very descriptive on what to do next. But then again that is every lego game for you.

Very fun game! I have 214 hours on it and I've still only completed about 50%. I cannot wait to see the stud fountain. People keep complaining it's bad 'cause it just copied the original and that the original is better. But the truth is that I haven't played the original and I think this game rocks. Any casual gamer and fan of the Avengers franchise will love this game. I wrote a full review on my blog: https://scifipie.me/2016/03/14/lego-avengers-my-thoughts/

LEGO Marvel's Avengers
Developer: Traveler's Tales, TT Games
Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

Gonna try to make this review a little shorter than my usual. If you've played one LEGO game, you've (nearly) played them all.

Introduction
==========
Once again we get another great LEGO title! This time, TT Games gave the Avengers the LEGO treatment. To put it simply, yes: this game is worth buying. If you love LEGO games, you will love LEGO Avengers.

Gameplay
==========
LEGO games don't really change much between titles. Break stuff, get studs, spend studs on characters and other unlockables. Solve puzzles, find secrets, cash them in. This game puts you in the shoes of the Avengers, and follows along the story of not only the Avengers films, but also Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man. You will be playing through levels based scenes from each of these films.

One downside, I found, is that this title is a bit more difficult to progress though. Usually you are able to figure out what to do to progress the story on each stage very quickly in a LEGO game, but this one seems more difficult. I found myself looking up guides on the Internet to progress many times. It's annoying, to say the least, but it's something I felt I had to mention.

Graphics
==========
Not much has changed in LEGO graphics, but overall it looks very nice. It might be a bit more colorful than usual, but everything retains the same look and feel as previous LEGO titles. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though. Sticking to a familiar formula works for some, and it definitely works for these LEGO games.

Sound and Music
==========
Ever since one of the older LEGO titles (can't recall which), all titles since have had voice acting. Usually ripped straight from the source material. LEGO Avengers is no different. It sounds like they did a better job doing it this time though. The soundtrack works really well for the game, especially in the epic battles you WILL face.

Performance
==========
I ran into no issues while playing this game. No lag, stuttering, or FPS issues. PC Specs are on my profile if you are curious. Playing with a controller is highly recommended, but keyboard can work pretty well if you don't have any other options and get used to it.

Final Thoughts
==========
If you are looking for a relaxing, casual title based on one of the more popular comic book superhero teams, look no further. LEGO Avengers scratches the LEGO itch and the superhero itch very well. There's plenty to do, and plenty to collect. You can't go wrong with this title. It's great for relaxing after a hard day at work, or a rough day at school.

Being a huge fan of Marvel, This game already get's a big start in my personal book.
Now, Onto the review

Summary
TT (Traveler's Tale's) games brings, once again, another LEGO Themed game to the table, This time it being The Avengers from Marvel.
The game follows the 2 Marvel movie's with the same name: Marvel's The Avengers (2012), and Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
The first stage covers the opening of A:AOU, It introduce's you to the game and its mechanics, all the character's, and other stuff you need to know to get started on this game.

Level Design

The level's in this game are, ''unique'', if i may say so, They're sometimes long and frustrating, but are always fun and exiting, About 90% of the level's are either, playforming and puzzle's, or enemy waves you need to execute.

Character's
The game's has a HUGE roster of character's, Going from The Avengers members, to the X-men, and forgotten Marvel characters.

My favorite thing however, Are Tony Stark and his Iron Man armor's
Each armor (Exept the one's that appear in Iron Man films and Avengers films) need to be found in hidden places, They then can be used for combat.
All the armor's (exept the Hulkbuster, Mark 1 and Mark 25) have the same ability's (Flying, Repulsor's, rocket's and a lazerbeam), The exeptions are:
Hulkbuster: No rocket's, Replaced with Tazers
Mark 1: No repulsor's, Replaced with Flamethrower and Flamethrower shots, no flight
Mark 25 (Striker): No repulsor's, Replaced with small screw's that don't fly very far, limited flight, However, The armor is the only minifigure that can carry heavy stuff

All the armor's (Again, Exept the Hulkbuster, MK1 and MK25) look the same, Albeit with some, Like the Silver Centurion and the Mark 40, Are more armor-fied or have a gray colourscheme.

Combat
Like every TT Lego game, The combat is annoying, You have to keep walking towards the enemy to eleminate it, If you don't, you either miss and get killed.

Story Mode
The story, like mentioned earlier, follows the 2 Avengers movies
[NO SPOILER'S AHEAD]
The first level follows the opening part of Avengers 2, Then it goes on about Avengers 1 for about 5 level's, After that it returns to Avengers 2 and the game ends in that movie arc aswell.

After that, There are seperate missions that cover the single-hero movies (Iron Man 2/3, Thor 1/2, Captain America 2 and The Hulk)
These level's unlock new character's/Iron Man suits aswell)
[SPOILER'S, KINDA, AHEAD]
Iron Man 3: The Mark 42, The badass bouncing baby brother
Iron Man 2: The Mark 5, The suitcase suit
Captain America: The classic, WWII Super soldier, BEFORE he was an Ice cube.
Hulk: Abomination, Hulk's first opponent, And the classic hulk.
Thor: The classic Thor

Conclusion
The game is fun and rewarding, 7.5/10
Recommended? Hell yeah

POSTED: February 1, 2016
UPDATED: June 25, 2016

Lego Marvel's Avengers is a Lego action-adventure video game developed by TT Games and published by Warner Brothers, releasing on the PS4, PS3, PS Vita, 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and for PC, releasing on Steam in January 2016.

After 100% completing the game, I'm able to base my review on literally everything the game has to offer, besides most of the new DLC.

The game's story takes place through various scenes in 6 of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) movies, such as; The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and The Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the exception of future DLC that includes Ant-Man and possibly others. They currently have a deal with Sony for a time exclusive DLC featuring an Ant-Man story/characters and Civil War characters, which will release in a few months for all other platforms.

First thing's first, is this better than Lego Marvel Superheroes?

In my opinion, yes and no.

Based on the roster, I liked Superheroes better because it had all of my favorite characters and the more iconic characters all in one. So don't go into this expecting to see Deadpool, The Fantastic Four, or the X-Men, as this game focuses soley on the Avengers MCU and comic universe. If Marvel doesn't own the sole rights to put them in a movie, they won't be in this game. But they still have a great roster of over 190 different characters.

Gameplay wise, it is much better. Combat seems more fluid. There are now combat specials where you use your second character to take down enemies. They added super jumps to certain characters. Speedsters are really fun to play as. Quicksilver is easily one of my favorites to play as, with their new mechanics. The voice acting for most of the main cast is ripped straight from the movies to give it an authentic feeling. For the most part, it sounds good, but there are parts where it just doesn't sound right. The graphics actually look much better, in my opinion. All returning characters have been completely revamped with new movesets and animations. Tony Stark and his Iron suits also have a neat animation when switching characters, that makes it seem like you're inside his helmet, like in the movies. Unlike Marvel Superheroes, there are now several different hub areas you can explore. They include Tony Stark's beach house in Malibu, S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ, South Africa, Hawkeye's farm, Slovenia, Asgard, and the return of Manhattan.

I did run into a few bugs here and there that caused me to restart a level or two, but nothing game breaking. A few freezes and stutters here and there, especially when flying or jumping, but otherwise, smooth 60 FPS on high settings.

I was able to completely beat the game in about 30 hours. That includes collecting all the gold/red bricks, vehicles/characters, Stan's in peril, and minikits.

Overall, it's a great game for any Marvel fan. I grew up playing the Lego series, and I still enjoy them today at 21. If you're a fan of the movies, you'll definitely be a fan of this game, as TT has yet to disappoint. The retail price is $40 at the time of this review, but with all Lego games, they'll likely drop down to $7.50 during a sale within the next year. If you can't wait, I was able to pick it up for about $10 from a third-party key seller website whose logo is a penguin. *hint hint*

If you found this review helpful, please give it a thumbs up.

Lego Marvel Avengers is the second Lego Marvel game in the series, developed by TT Games and published by Warner Brothers, releasing on PS4, PS3, PS Vita, 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and of course, Steam in January 2016.

As with all Lego games, you are going to get stellar gameplay. Run around whacking enemies using your super heroes special power, be it Hulk’s strength or Captain America’s shield, you will get to play as your favourite heroes in style here. I am about three levels into the game thus far and have had a good range of different puzzles and action to take part in. Your inner Lego builder will absolutely love smashing all of the scenery and objects to get that magic 100% brick mark on every level too.

I am playing the game on 4k and the game looks exactly the same as the rest of the series. You can drop it down to lower resolutions but you will lose the crispness of the models and textures. As with the rest of the series, all of the animations are absolutely flawless. Unlike the previous Marvel game in the series, Marven Avengers uses original voice acting that is pulled straight from the six films this game is based off. There are also a couple of lines from a few characters that have been specially recorded just for the purpose of this game.

The story of the game is based off The Avengers, Avengers Age of Ultron, Captain America, Iron Man 3, Thor: Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Meaning you are going to get an absolutely stunning plot. I am like a little kid again following this story as I haven’t seen a few of the films; I am looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

Don’t expect to get a massive challenge in this game, dying doesn’t really come with any penalty, and the puzzles can normally be figured out pretty quickly. That doesn’t take away any of the fun though, you will find yourself spending hours just running around in awe at the structures and objects in this game that are made out of Legos! Level design is always the Lego games stronger points, with sooooo many collectibles, and hundreds of side missions to feast on.

There is also a lot of replay ability in this game, you will need to go back and replay levels if you want to unlock everything, as some parts of the stage will require a certain hero which you may not have unlocked yet. This is one of my favourite things to do once I finish the main story as you get to replay old content while still being rewarded.

As said above, I am running on 4k with the texture quality set to high and I am getting a silky smooth 60 fps. I have suffered from one freeze in game play that lasted about five seconds, not sure what will have caused this so I am going to assume it is a one off. The game plays perfectly with a game pad and I would recommend you do to. The ease of a second player dropping in and out of gameplay is again a major strong point making couch co-op relevant.

Even though I am only about an hour and a half into this game, I can easily highly recommend Lego: Marvel Avengers as a brilliant game. I love the Lego series, and this game is going to probably be one of its most popular releases. The game’s retail price on Steam is £24,99, I would say that is a fair price, but you can find it a lot cheaper elsewhere and Lego games do go on sale fairly regularly, so you may want to bear that in mind.

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

Today on I Can't Believe I'm An Adult and Paid $40 For This Game: Lego Marvel's Avengers.

First off, it's a Lego game. If you don't like running around, smashing everything in sight, janky controls poorly ported from consoles, and inexplicable chickens, this changes very little in the formula. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. If it ain't broke, don't fix it and all that.

Second, it's improved. (Graphically.) If you played Lego Marvel Superheroes, almost all of the characters that made the jump to this one have been made better in one way or another, even if it's just graphically. Thor, perhaps, was one of the most fun to play with, now that Mjolnir stays electrified and easily deflects projectiles heading your way. They also made up for Hawkeye's relative uselessness in the MCU (I love you, Clint, but it's true) by giving him several more block types to interact with than the previous game. The graphics are actually very nice and I can still run it maxed out on my definitely-not-a-gaming-computer. That's always a nice feeling.

Third: open world. Grand Theft LEGO never fails to amuse me, but I'm easily amused and if you give me the opportunity to have the Hulk steal a car and drive it around New York City until it explodes, I'm going to take it. They took what was already the best part of the previous game and made it even better, IMO, and I've barely had a chance to play it. (UPDATE 2/2: Make sure you check out some of the other hubs besides Manhattan for more content -- also Coulson doesn't bug you about some guy stealing a purse every two minutes, which is nice.)

Four: the heroes. While Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four are notably missing from the roster (blame FOX), this gave Marvel the chance to pull out some of its lesser-known roster of heroes. I'm not sleeping until I unlock Kamala Khan, because I'm just so excited there is a video game with Kamala Khan in it. Also, the Young Avengers will always hold a place in my heart for being the book that got me into comics to begin with, so I'm pretty excited about them, too. (I'm guessing the game will not explain how Scarlet Witch, in her mid-twenties, has teenage twin sons also running around fighting crime?)

This isn't to say it's not without its flaws, because it has lots of those, too. Maybe I'm romanticising it because of the content that it's based on, maybe I'm biased, maybe I should just sleep and replay it in the morning when I haven't had coffee yet and see how frustrated a children's game can make me.

There is no original story in this game unless you decide to play out your own in the open world. If you've seen the movies, you've seen the plot for this game. While it draws mostly from the two Avengers movies, there are sequences from many of the solo films as well. On the bright side, the fact that this is a Lego game means no one dies, so Agent Coulson and Quicksilver are fine, on vacation in Tahiti. It's a magical place. They also made the Bruce/Natasha relationship in Age of Ultron make a little bit of sense, which is a miraculous achievement I didn't think was possible. So props there.

Because the game uses the original audio from the movies, things feel... off. Some lines are delivered too seriously for any Lego game, others are taken out of context to be used as chatter while you play, and it all sounds very quiet at times. For some inexplicable reason, they had a different voice actor record new dialogue for Bucky Barnes in the Captain America: First Avenger level, who sounds more like the original kid Bucky from the 1940s than the soldier portrayed in the movies. ("I'm with you 'til the end of the line!" he says enthusiastically! For some reason I have taken offense to this and I'm not entirely sure why.)

That being said, Hayley Atwell, Clark Gregg, and Cobie Smulders all recorded additional dialogue for their characters (Agents Carter, Coulson, and Hill respectively), and when delivered well (which it not always is), are amusing and make this game feel like it's supposed to be -- a Lego game in the MCU.

You're thrown into the game's opening sequence with absolutely no instruction as to how to play. Fortunately, if you've played any Lego game on the PC in the past, absolutely nothing has changed. Unfortunately, if you've played any Lego game on the PC in the past, absolutely nothing has changed. The controls suck. They always will suck. This time, they just suck and you're given very little information on how to use them. There are puzzle sections I spent ten minutes on because things were just not clear.

There are bugs -- I can't get the Steam Overlay to work, and sometimes the characters just won't do what you want them to (Tony, you're making Clint ashamed by how poorly you're aming your laser beam. Just hit the gold bricks, that's your only job).

So far, it's a cute game. It's a Lego game. It's a Marvel game. And it's fun. I can't really complain about that. Is it worth $40? Not really, but yet again, it's not money I regret spending (yet).

UPDATE (2/2/2016): I've finished Story Mode, and I have to say, I'm more underwhelmed than I was when I started out. While it's not necessarily enough for me to give it a not recommended rating, I'd definitely say that it's subpar as far as Lego game and pales in comparison next to the previous Marvel game. It's still fun though. Stupidly so. And it's not like people play Lego games for the excellent, original stories. So, yeah. Wait until this one goes on sale. But it's still fun, and it still has Kamala Khan, and that's good enough for me.

"When you put 6 hours into a game the day you got it, you know it's good"

Ok, I never expected this to be the top review for this game on steam!
Thanks to everyone who voted this as helpful
Now I will write an actual review

Lego Avengers is what I would call a "spiritual succesor" to Lego Marvel Superheroes, which is the best Lego game of all time
So how does this game compare?

The best parts of Lego Marvel return such as the awesome Open World (some of) your favorite Marvel characters and great humor.

So I'll start out with the open world

The huge open world New York from Lego Marvel returns, and it's almost exactly the same as in Lego Marvel. The only difference is that some of the landmarks like the Baxter Building Daily Bugle and the X-Mansion are gone. But the world is still fun to explore with tons of side missions. They also added random crimes, people will be robbed and cars will be stolen, but that's it. I really wish they expanded this feature, like stopping a large scale bank robbery or a stopping a big fight between the criminals and the cops, the current crimes tend to get old. There are also several other hub worlds, but all the other one's are small. Espicially Washington D.C, I wish instead of having a ton of tiny one's that they would have just put in the city that AAOU takes place in and have be the same size as New York.

Now I'll talk about the characters

Since they're using the MCU for this game we only get characters that appear in the MCU, meaning no X-Men Spider-Man Fantastic Four or Deadpool. Yet this still has more characters than the last game, and a lot of them are just filler, there's a million "Agent" characters and just civilians as characters. But I do like what they did with some of the characters in this game. In Lego Marvel Hulk was just ok, he could run around and punch cars, that was about it. In this game Hulk has an awesome super jump and can climb on buildings, Quicksilver is also fun because he can run up buildings. I would also like to mention that the character creator has improved.

Now I'll talk about the story

I actually really liked the story in Lego Marvel, the voice actors were great and it was funny, Lego Avengers' story is based off of movies from the MCU, while there's nothing wrong with this it's just not as funny as Lego Marvel, don't get me wrong, this game is funny, I actually laughed at several of the jokes, and they also use lines from the movies in different ways, overall the story is great.

Overall I give it a 8/10, a must have for fans of the MCU or Marvel or Lego Games in general

Let me just put it this way:

This and LEGO(R) MARVEL Superheroes are two equal and opposite sides of the same coin.

One is open city play Manhattan. One is open PLANET play Earth, plus a piece of the Nine Realms thrown in for fun.

One is utterly Original Story, with all the Classic Characters LEGO-ified from the Fantastic Four to Deadpool, the other is Carbon-Copy of the Cinematic Universe.

It Includes as much of the Netflix and ABC shows as possible while neglecting some obvious things from the previous game including the lack of return of even Deadpool Red Bricks, which is super obviously due to this game being prepared before everything was finalized for MARVEL to be allowed to make Deadpool and get Spider-Man into Civil War. Yes, this game is a MARVEL game with no Spider-Man, but with a team of 'Defenders' that includes neither Namor, Hulk, nor Doctor Strange.

Does that make it bad? NO! This to me makes one game simply Timeless, and one simply a Period Piece. A Historical Artifact. The first game took place in a strange Tesseract-Aether created Alternate Amalgam Universe, the LEGO Universe. This is the reverse-engineer process, A Basic LEGO game, MARVEL-Cinematic Universe-ified.

There are Three Kinds of People:

Those who love love love what Game 1 is doing and hate what Game 2 is doing;
Those who love love love what Game 2 is doing to get to the point and didn't stop as much to smell the roses for Game 1 (Game 1 lacked Infinity Stones or Eternity, come on!)

And Those who......having seen what Game 1 and Game 2 look like......strongly believe that Game 3, which is so, totally coming, is going to be the all-time-record Best MARVEL game in the History Of Ever.

LEGO MARVEL: Infinity War is going to have Spider-Man. It's going to have Deadpool. It's going to have Thanos and the Infinity Gems. It's going to have at the very least the Cinematic Universe's take on the Cosmic Powers that Be. It's going to not be so gummed up by a zillion X-Men-verse characters, and lack of Magneto is going to be a sad thing, but we will have space for a zillion other characters that we wouldn't have got that have their own charm, and we will have who knows what else. We can even strongly hope that by the time it's time for LEGO MARVEL 3, MARVEL will at least be able to negotiate for the use of Fantastic Four characters for the game, whatever happens film-wise. Which will be great and awesome.

I have had some glitch issues and it took me a while to fix them.
I wasn't able to get the DLC the same day I got the game, but as soon as I could, I did.
It's LEGO. And it's MARVEL.

If you have played basically any games at all, there is something in this game for you, and while you might be reluctant to pay full price for it, you know you wish you had more money to justify impulse buying it even if you have doubts. Of course you will miss Spider-Man. But you will love flying around the Planet landing on the Hub Worlds.

As with many games of this nature, the Secrets and Extras are not only harder than you would expect after a slew of easy ones, but sometimes your own controls get in the way and make it seem physically impossible to ever get something.
Be honest. You knew what you were getting into. You are HOPING for that experience, so you can say, I got THAT character-whose-name-I-don't-know-and-doesn't-appear-in-anything-I've-ever-seen-ever-and-even-my-dad-doesn't-know-this-insane-pointless-obscure-character.
You know that character? The one with ZERO good stories about them? Well now they HAVE a Story about them. The Story of YOU getting their Character Token in LEGO MARVEL's Avengers.

Captain America (Sam Wilson) Falcon can partner with Captain America (Civilian) Steve Rogers who is just in a Jacket and Shield, to explore Washington DC's Mall together, and just running side by side each other gets an Achievement. Know what it's called?

ON YOUR LEFT.

You do realize that right there is worth the price of admission, yes?
Also, there's like, a whole game to play, and stuff, besides the zillion ''OMG SQUEEE!" moments like that.
Does Arnim Zola (Classic) look stupid and not fit this game at all? Yes, absolutely.
Is that a problem worth complaining about? Not when finding him is one of the hardest things you'll do. He's not hard to reach, but he's HIDDEN. Really Well. Very Secret. Much Stealth. And his Hideout is one of the best parts of the game.
