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 board 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 Cosmic 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 which hero you choose, 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?

    Since the new Avengers game came out recently, we wanted to play in the Lego Marvel universe but not shell out more than 20 bucks. As with all Lego games, this one does not disappoint and has a HUGE character roster to unlock and a decent sized open world to explore. It has excellent graphics, almost too good (really, they are just Lego characters, do we need realistic water and fire here?). I played through quite a bit of the storyline with a 8 yr old friend but he seemed to get a little overwhelmed whenever we had to navigate the open world, so this might be geared more toward older kids/early teens. Still, we have a lot of fun with this title and I am happy with it in my game collection. Couch co-op games are getting more rare these days and this is a fun one to play with plenty to do, great graphics, and that signature Lego cheekiness (visual jokes and silliness) throughout. I enjoyed the Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Star Wars games more but overall this is a decent game for under 20 bucks and I am certain young comic book/Marvel fans will enjoy it.

    We've gotten a lot of Lego games before. Some have their flaws sure, but overall they are the same style game. Marvels is the same way. Tons of characters, tons of hidden challenges and side missions. The open sandbox map is pretty big and full of studs (money) so a little extra time spent exploring also helps get the stud count up to buy extras and unlocks. The story is pretty solid. Nothing to write home about, but when are the Lego games ever? Only difference is this doesn't follow a movie story like star wars or Indiana Jones or Harry Potter so it's "new" and less predictable. Overall its a fun game and what you expect from the franchise. They updated features and tweaked the annoying/bad ones from the past. One thing to note, if you're buying it for kids, the difficulty is somewhat up there. Sometimes the way through a level isn't always obvious but a voice over from agent Colson should help. But it's 2 player/split screen friendly so just grab a controller and help them out of it.

    I love comics. I love video games. I wasn't really expecting much from this title, but it exceeded my expectations in every way. This game has dozens and dozens of Marvel superheroes to unlock. Even Squirrel Girl is here. LEGO Marvel Superheroes isn't exactly intellectually challenging, but it is mindless and unlimited fun with some challenging elements in the form of character centric puzzles. It may be because it's one of the first games I bought for the PS4, but as a longtime and old school gamer, it reminds me of the feeling I got when first playing Mario Bros. on the NES or Super Mario World on the SNES. There are tons of collectibles to discover and unlockables to earn in this game, which means a lot of replayability. My two-year-old daughter also loves watching and trying to play this game because she recognizes so many of the characters from stories I have read to her. Get this game. You won't be disappointed.

    I've played a few Lego games in the past, and while they all have their qwerky humor, they were all rather too simple for my taste. While this game still has the same simplistic concept of destroying and rebuilding, the incorporation of the Marvel universe makes it a huge game changer! Not to mention, the game has a main hub world, aka open sandbox (like from Grand Theft Auto, Deus Ex, etc.) with tons of side tasks. You can fly around the city as Iron Man, web sling from building to building as Spiderman, or run around as the Hulk. There are a ton of characters to choose from, both heroes and villains alike. This game is also co-op, making it a blast to play with a friend. I normally don't recommend Lego games for the mere fact of how repetitive they are, but the changes they made with this game make it all the worth while! Overall, this game is a great game for relaxing and just having a fun time.

    I have not played a Lego game in years and after seeing the insane amount of them that began to flood the market I assumed they were going to go the way of Guitar Hero. I was wrong. Lego Marvel is addictive for anyone who is a fan of the comics and the fan service with all the characters is surprising. The open world Gameplay is a nice addition and being able to fly or swing or ride around town as your fave marvel character was a nice treat. Like any game aimed at a 10+ crowd there is a very good amount of repetitive Gameplay here. It may be a deal breaker for some, but still worth checking out. Out of all the PS4 release titles this one really surprised me. Just don't expect it to be crazy "next gen" if you have a PS3 don't rush out and get a new system for this one.

    if you like the lego games, this is no different. it is pretty large and has a lot of side games to play and explore around the city. great for kids, but maybe not if they're really young or just starting with video games. like most lego games, you don't really "die" or lose lives, and can continue to get hurt over and over and its basically no big deal, so thats good for kids, but sometimes solving were to go in a level is complicated, (and that's coming from a grown adult) my wife and i struggled a few times to figure out what we were supposed to do to move forward. but eventually you can figure it out. overall, really fun game, especially for fans of the lego games. older kids will love it, or young kids if you play along with them

    Fun and entertaining game

    During my childhood I was obsessed with Lego and always thought it would be neat to be able to play an actual Lego videogame of some sort. Ironically, once I grew up I always kept my distance from Lego games thinking that they were for children mostly and not so entertaining until Marvel Lego came out, and I felt compelled to at least give it a shot. It was a good decision. The game's commands are simple and in my opinion are quite easy. But the lighthearted humor and story makes it entertaining and enjoyable to play. There was not a single moment where I was upset or having trouble going through stages. Basically it is a game where you can relax, sit back and enjoy. Worries free! I do think that hardcore gamers and older Marvel fans may find it too easy but at the same time, it is a good game to change the pace from other games you may be playing. Enjoy it!
