    I honestly hope this game is better on the consoles. Lego, when it aint broke, don't fix it. They did exactly the opposite. What I loved about the previous lego games (aside from Lego Batman 2) The game was the same on DS and the consoles, they didn't dumb it down at all. Well they did this time. Free roam? No. Not only do you not get to explore New York City's Marvel twin, but you don'tI honestly hope this game is better on the consoles. Lego, when it aint broke, don't fix it.

Well they did this time. Free roam? No. Not only do you not get to explore New York City's Marvel twin, but you don't get to explore anywhere. This game can still be fun though and is a time wasster, but it is very flawed. If you were planning to buy the 3DS version, don't. I'm sure the PS3 and XBox 360 versions are much better. Expand

    If you love Lego games avoid this at all costs!

    Travellers Tales have taken the great Lego formula and completely broken it, out go the big levels, multiple character switching and the ability to jump in comes instant death and the frustration of playing levels over and over.

    Travellers Tales have taken the great Lego formula and completely broken it, out go the big levels, multiple character switching and the ability to jump in comes instant death and the frustration of playing levels over and over.

    Having lots of re-doing levels (instant death or to re-collect gold bricks) and lots of shoddy cut scenes has been added to counteract the lack of real in game content and try and make the game seem longer than it is.

    I think Travellers Tales thought this game would sell on the LEGO Marvel Superheroes name and quality of past games, so didn't need to put in any real effort.

    A boring and poor addition to the LEGO stable of games.

    Try one of the older Lego games instead and save yourself some money.

    Long load times, ugly cinematics, and finicky touch controls aside, the fun mission structure and engaging gameplay makes this one worth picking up for anyone seeking big fun in small bursts.

    The portable counterpart to LEGO Marvel Superheroes is a lot les 'Super'. Levels are short and bland, the cut-scenes are in horrible quality and the gameplay just isn't that much fun when the whole game lacks the polish and quality that the console-version has.

    In all, the technical problems of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes really make it difficult to recommend, although there’s no dearth of content. You just have to be willing to put up with a lot to enjoy it.
