I am going to start by saying that Lego Marvel Super Heroes is the best of all the Lego games! I am talking even better than Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, Lego Marvel’s Avengers and Lego Batman: The Videogame. This one right here is where they absolutely nailed the formula and each game since while good has not quite lived up to it.
The Gang Is All Here
The story of Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a ton of fun. The main villains in the game are Dr. Doom and Loki who plan to use Galactus and his power to take over the world for themselves. There are many other elements in play here and tons of villains that you will come across. The X-Men, Avengers, Spider-Man and everyone in between are involved in trying to stop the villains from taking over the world.
The game has some fantastic voice acting and a ton of personality. It is impossible not to be sucked in by this story. It is so well done that I feel it appeals to you if you are 6 or 56! It is just a great superhero story and I feel it not being tied to any movie actually works in its favor.
Lego Batman 2 was the first of the games to have an open world, but it was Lego Marvel Super Heroes that really nailed it. Even the games that followed this do not have as much of an interesting open-world as this one here does. It features many iconic Marvel locations and you will visit many of them in the story.
A huge part of the fun though is going beyond the story. Like in other Lego games there are a ton of characters to unlock. There are gold bricks, Deadpool bricks, side missions and a million Stan Lee’s to save too! Just going around the city and trying to find what you can break what you can and take vehicles is as much fun as actually playing through the story.
It features a ton of awesome heroes and villains and it is quite clever the way they can use their powers. Spider-man, for example, can climb walls and web sling. Wolverine can sense hidden things out and use his claws. Thor can fly and use the power of thunder to power things up. These are just three examples of the fun abilities that you will be using as you play the game.
Play With A Friend
While Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a lot of fun to play on your own. This is a fantastic game to play through with someone. It is the perfect game to play with a child. Any parent gamers out there or those with a younger sibling, I would dare say that Lego Marvel Super Heroes is one of the very best games ever made that you could play with them, especially if they are relatively new to video games.
I really cannot praise this game highly enough. I really do think that they nailed it with Lego Marvel Super Heroes. It is fun to play, it looks great, perfect for younger and older gamers alike and it is just an all-round joy to play. I really cannot recommend this game highly enough. If you only play through one Lego game then I feel it has to be this one here. Not to say the others are bad, I just feel that this one gets pretty much everything right.
