    Lego and Marvel are a match made in heaven. The game is by far Traveller's Tales' best achievement. Although the action degenerates still to monotonous button-smashing. Hopefully this is fixed in the next game. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Lego Star Trek. [Dec 2013]

    This franchise may be getting long in the tooth but that doesn't stop LEGO Marvel Super Heroes from being a thoroughly delightful romp that's both funny and full of variety.

    It’s a LEGO game with loads to do.

    Traveller’s Tales continues its streak of making every one of its games better than the last, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a lighthearted game with plenty of replay – whether or not they have a closet filled with polybagged first editions.

    Yet again, TT Games delivers a satisfying, familiar and yet surprising LEGO game. It is also plagued by technical issues and annoying glitches which make it somewhat less enjoyable than it should be.

    LEGO Marvel is, without a doubt, the best LEGO game so far. It may even be the best Marvel game so far. Due to its extensive game time and its ample variety of options, it can be considered an excellent game, or as Stan Lee himself would put it: "Excelsior".

    With two enormous franchise names coming together in one expansive and extremely satisfying title, I think it’s safe to say that LEGO and Marvel has brought us a game that doesn’t come by often and shouldn’t be missed.

    It brings a level of child-like enthusiasm and joy to each level and character that just can’t be passed up.

    This is one of the best Marvel-based games ever made. It is true that might be quite similar to previous LEGO games, but still you’ll have loads of fun with it.

    The rich Marvel Universe and Traveller’s Tales’ Lego series is a match made in heaven – instead of dozens of bland droids, pirates or guards this time we got the roster of over 100 interesting and varied characters. The gameplay remained mostly unchanged and is rather easy but there is always something cool going on to keep you interested. The best Lego game to date. [01/2014, p.60]

    Lego Marvel Super Heroes might just be the perfect game to keep kids occupied these holidays, as it’s crawling with familiar faces, voices and some downright charm. Just be cautioned however, as several flaws may make you angry. And you wouldn’t like this game when you get angry.

    Overall the game does not progress in the formula, but serves as a tribute to one of the most beloved universes of entertainment. It is very fun to play together with a friend or with kids at home; it’s a game for everyone able to pull out a good laugh even from the dourest of "hardcore" gamers.

    One of the best LEGO Games around. The developers are Marvel fans, and it shows, with an amazing amount of Easter eggs, and spot on jokes that are sure to make the game a blast for comic aficionados. There are no real evolutions in the gameplay, but it's still an accessible and entertaining product for the whole family, with a lot of content to boot.

    LEGO Marvel is probably the best LEGO game to date. Nothing has changed since the first title, but the latest chapter of the series is packed with dozen of hours of gameplay, collectibles and humor for all the family.

    Lego Marvel isn’t the most polished game you’ve ever seen, but it doesn’t pretend to be. Instead what you get is a fun action-platformer for young and old that is filled to the brim with Marvel fan service, offers tons of content and entertainment, and is a great latest instalment in what continues to be one of the most enjoyable couch co-op series out there.

    Co-op problems aside, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is one of the most fun games I’ve played this year.

    A more deeply integrated city, a rethinking of the controls and broader options for solving puzzles would inject some extra life into the LEGO franchise.

    LEGO Super Heroes Marvel retains largely on the solid backbone of its predecessors, presenting a structure that bases his strength upon the bulk of the characters, puzzles and content.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is completely innocent and light entertainment. It doesn't make any steps forward though and new elements aren't introduced, but that never really quells the fun. Accessible gameplay and lots of Marvel make this a pleasant and charming game that can keep you busy for hours on end. The world isn't a technical marvel by a long shot, but that's not a concern for our brave super heroes.

    Whether you're looking for a way to take down the Juggernaut or working to help a random citizen in Free Play mode, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is all sorts of web-slinging, shield-flinging, Hulk-smashing fun.

    This game doesn't deserve a single point. Completely unplayable buggy crap. Freezes AT LEAST TWICE on every single level and the last levelThis game doesn't deserve a single point. Completely unplayable buggy crap. Freezes AT LEAST TWICE on every single level and the last level can't be completed, because it freezes at the middle of the level. I can't understand why developers release incomplete games. Oh, and there is no chance they will patch this game, as they moved on to make other games. Shame on you TT games. Full Review »

The game is top quality in all departments. Gameplay, graphics, fun, humor, co op....its all there. The game is the most epic yet of all the Lego games, even more so than Lego Batman 2 and Lego Lord of the Rings which I both loved. The action is awesome, the music is epic, and the game makes you want to know what will happen next in the story. Also, there are tons and tons of collectibles and characters to unlock. The replay value is insane for this game. It will last you a really long time. It has the biggest roster of any Lego game to date. Full Review »
