What is not to love when LEGOs are combined with Marvel? With that being said, you tend to get a really fun and entertaining game called LEGO: Marvel Super Heros. Personally, I’ve been a fan of both LEGO and Marvel since I was a kid. Although Batman is pretty awesome, I prefer Marvel and Spiderman over DC. There is my recognition to you, Stan ‘The Man’ Lee!
Seems as if LEGO and video games have been going hand and hand as of late. With the creation of several great titles such as; Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Harry Potter, LEGOs have once again become an all time favorite for children and also regaining the attention from adults. LEGO: Marvel Super Heros continues this tend and the franchise progressively moves forward.
Similar to the other titles, LEGO: Marvel Super Heros has level progressions, where the heroes must stop the evil villain and their crazy plans. The player can enjoy the game solo or pair up with another gamer to assist in the fight. Each level has LEGO coins to collect which in turn will give you an award after completing the meter bar. Not much changing with any of the LEGO games other than the theme and characters. Each character has their own special ability to gain access and solve puzzles along the way. I like to think of it as the saying goes, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it!
My experience for this game was done on the Xbox One. Of course the game graphics were clean as to be expected. One thing the stood out to me and I felt this should be mentioned; my wife complained about camera angles when playing together. I can remember the original LEGO games having a fixed split screen. The creators felt this restricted the players ability to view as much of the map as possible, so it was changed to a rotating camera angle view. It doesn’t bother me, but as you can see it does to others.
Sound is good and clear. Smashing blocks and voice comments from the characters is great.
LEGO: Marvel Super Heros is really entertaining. One of the best things about the LEGO games is the comedy. The writers do a great job at applying jokes and making the game fun for all ages.
- Very entertaining.
- Great game with family and or friends.
- Story is a little all over the place.
