    Synopsis


    What are the qualities that make up a super hero, in your opinion? Do they have to have incredible strength? Or is it more important to have a heart of gold and a strong defense? Is it a requirement that they have the most advanced and innovative technology out there? Maybe you'd prefer a hero who can do things that no ordinary human can do. Whatever your opinion, the Marvel universe has a super hero for you. Everyone has their favorite — that one hero that you think can take on any villain and always end up saving the world in the end. In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, you get the chance to become your favorite hero. With the likes of more than 100 celebrated characters from the Marvel sphere, including Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine and The Hulk, at your fingertips, you've got your bases covered. So villains, such as the nefarious Loki, better watch their back.

    Dive into a world that combines the classic videogame adventure and humor that LEGO is known for with the exciting comic book world of Marvel. In a thrilling original storyline, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes takes you on a wild ride as you fight to stop Doctor Doom, Loki and a host of other Marvel villains who have joined together to recover the broken pieces of the Silver Surfer's in order to assemble a super weapon that gives them the power to control the world. Explore the iconic city of New York with a LEGO twist as you chase down Comic Bricks and battle super villains, and visit other iconic Marvel locations, including the X-Mansion, Stark Tower, Asgard, Asteroid M and an abandoned Hydra Base. No matter of which hero you take control, there's an array of amazing strengths and awe-inspiring abilities at your disposal. Iron Man can fly, hover, shoot missiles and unleash a powerful energy beam straight from the Arc Reactor. Spider-Man's powers include shooting webs, using his heightened senses to spot objects that are invisible to others, crawling up walls and, of course, web swinging. Throw Captain America's shield at objects or enemies, embed it into a wall to create a platform or use it to deflect lasers and protect him from damage. BIG-fig characters, such as The Hulk and Abomination, can smash through LEGO walls and throw cars with hyper strength. Or you can create your own, unique super hero with customizable abilities. The world is in danger — are you ready to become a Super Hero?

      This is a great superhero game and includes TONS of characters from the Marvel universe. The gameplay and format is familiar to previous Lego players. In this version the multiplayer allows for split screen action so you are not tied to your partner's action so much. The graphics are very good and each character's voices and actions line up well with their comic book counterparts. The only downside to the game is how it can freeze up during play, causing you to start the level all over again. Also, there are certain spots where a character can fall off a platform and keep falling over and over again. They will keep spawning over the edge, so the only thing you can do is restart the level, unless any of the other characters can reach the next cinematic sequence by themselves. In summary, the kids love this game and beat it in about 24 hours of playtime. I enjoyed watching them play it and occasionally joining in to help. We got this game on sale for $30 and free shipping so it was definitely a bang for our buck.

      Lego game fan, but this was not the best

      I have played several of the Lego games and really enjoy them, however Lego Marvel is probably my least favorite. I love the Marvel characters and did enjoy playing the game, but was a little disappointed. It felt like they tried to pack too many characters into too little story. The story was fun and interesting but short and a little too easy. There are lots of side missions and extras to find, perhaps too many, some of which were way harder than they needed to be. I am currently 6 gold bricks away from 100% completion, but that's probably as close as I'll get since I'm ready to give up. The worst thing about the game are the glitches. Many times the game would freeze up and have to be restarted. This is the glitchiest game I've ever played. The game version I got was the "greatest hits" version, which should have had most glitches fixed.

      I love all the different Characters and their powers, its one of The best MARVEL games I have ever played as well as one of the best Lego games. The story is actually pretty good and they have a TON of side missions that add to gameplay that are also actually really great! I think my only bad thing to say about this game is that the people that can fly in it (Iron Man, Thor, Captain Britain, Etc Etc) are terribly hard to control while in flight and that makes some of the race challenges a bit hard. Also forget about flying an aircraft in this, I mean they're alot of great aircrafts (the X-jet, a small helicarrier, Etc Etc) but you can barely control them and they never go where you want them to go and I haven't figured out how to actually land them.

      I bought this game for my roommates 12 year old son but he has probably played it less than everyone else in the house! It has a lot of side quests on top of the regular story line. Also when you are not in the story line you can move freely through Lego New York, which is nice if you just want to play a light game. Normally, the adults in the house are playing Bioshock, Alice, Amnesia, or some other "darker" kind of game however we have all enjoyed playing this one. It is not too challenging for kids but it is challenging enough that the adults like it too. Deadpool is too funny in the game as well, so it offers some comic relief.

      We have to admit that we were very bummed when the LEGO characters started talking in these games. There was a certain charm to all the crazy arm-flailing gestures in games like Harry Potter. Not to mention how epic this would have been if no one spoke but Deadpool. Think about it...he has no respect for the fourth wall...it would be such a great joke for hardcore nerds like us. However, our kids are crazy for LEGO's...AND comic book heroes. They are ten and under (and girls...their dad is SO proud). They love playing this together or solo. I would recommend any of the LEGO games to families.

      We bought it so our kids could play it on our new PS3..they are 6, 7, & 9. The 6 yr old struggles with it, but the older 2 are able to do just fine. Occasionally mom and dad have to help out, but they love playing it. Definitely like it more than Disney Marvels Infinity which we also bought. That gets very confusing for them and getting the characters & power discs is a pain and expensive. ..this is better hands down. We would like to see a game with Wonder Woman or other female super heroes with 3 little girls they do like them better.

      The game is incredibly fun and appropriate for all ages. You really get bang for your buck too. Between the main missions, replaying the main missions to get all the minikits, vehicles and character unlocks, and races you can easily play the game for 30 hours and not be at 100% complete. If you are a Marvel fan it is a must have. There are a few bugs in the game (characters getting stuck in a solid object) but the rest of the game makes up for that annoyance.

      Lego is one of the game developers that keeps producing interesting and completely fun games with each release. Love the huge selection of great MARVEL characters and the adaptive gameplay of utilizing different characters for different tasks. Especially love that the characters speak!!!!! Keep on developing these fun, classic, and just overall great games! Looking forward to Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham!!!!!!!
