    With an industry full of dark and brooding violent games, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is an amazing palette cleanser and an extremely fun time.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is an excellent LEGO game featuring a vast array of Marvel heroes and villains. Lack of online co-op and some difficult puzzles for younger ones holds it back a little, but not that much. You'll definitely enjoy the writing and animations.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes didn't step out of the Lego specimen, which, however, does not prevent it to offer a splendid gaming experience, especially in its cooperative multiplayer game. Moreover, this is one of the best games out there you may leave to your children without any concern.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a good game that generates a lot of fun. Unfortunately in comparison with two previous LEGO games it doesn't look that great. This "brick Marvel" is one of the best recent superhero games, but at the same time is a mediocre "LEGO platformer" game. Comic book fans should be pleased with Traveller's Tales' effort, but LEGO fans should keep playing The Lord of the Rings.

    You’d be hard-pressed not to enjoy this game for at least a few hours, but go beyond that and it might get tedious.

    The huge selection of great characters is scrumptiously entertaining from start to finish. Too bad it's a Lego game. [March 2014, p.74]

    A few missions in, I've played several Lego titles before but this is by far the best. Love the comedy, the diversity of characters and charming visuals. Making the game a sandbox was a fantastic move, as flying characters in previous Lego games kinda sucked when flying in two dimensions.

    Love the addition of voice actors including some from the actual films and shows, the dialog is often hysterical and adds to the slapstick style of Lego games.

    Minor flaws like lack of a skip cut scene button and archaic save system keep it from being a 10. I would also have loved a LAN option for the PC title as working with the one keyboard between two people can be a little taxing. Also, mouse controls please

    I havent played a lego game before and I am in awe.
    It feels like i'm watching/playing a playstation 4 title

    The attention to detail, the
    insane amount of playable characters (all with their own unique abilities). The Hollywood level animation and visuals.

    And its actually challenging

    Theres a moment in this game where the linearity (awesome though it is) stops and your brain learns of the scope of this game.

    Its just plain fun in cinematic form

    Will be checking out Lego Batman 2. I hear its just as much a labor of love
