    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes represents Traveler’s Tales finest work with the LEGO property. All of the requisite hooks are there: a fun story, good humor, solid gameplay and healthy challenges. The studio’s reverence for the source material really pays off in the end, with content and character options that should be more than enough for any type of Marvel fan.

    Super heroes assemble for the best entry in the LEGO series to date. TT Games are the best at what they do and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is fantastic fun with masses of replayability - nuff said.

    You only need a shallow appreciation for the Marvel super heroes culture to enjoy the newest Lego game. It has a lot of playable characters and the variation between exploration and standard levels is great. That makes it hard not to take the sometimes antiquated design for granted.

    TT games continues to deliver superb and unbelievably fun LEGO games. And LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is one of the best.
  9. LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes is a pretty attractive package, boasting a lot of game and overflowing with reverent fanservice. [Christmas 2013, p79]

    As Amazing, Fantastic and Incredible as this may be, the blocks are starting to fade ever-so-slightly and if the team isn’t careful, this could be the last truly great build it gets out of them.

    Huge, engaging and colorful, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the best LEGO game to date. Too bad the difficulty level is very low.

    Granted, the game doesn’t do much to take advantage of the PS4’s supercharged hardware – but when the core action’s this fun, we’re not even sure that the Hulk would be able to get angry about that.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes isn’t the best LEGO game to date, but it is one of those series that even if it is listed at the bottom of the series, it still offers more value and more fun than other series can ever hope to achieve.

    The entire Marvel universe is contained in this LEGO-fuelled action adventure and it's a simple, but highly effective title. If you've played previous LEGO games, you'll know what to expect: a lot of fun for everyone.

    There are minor improvements here but the next gen versions of Lego Marvel still rely on charm and fan service more than technical finesse.

    Very close to being the best Lego game yet, and sure to entertain kids, families and comic book fans alike.

    After about a dozen of entries in this 'series', many of the games' small mistakes probably should have been avoided. Still, you just can't be mad at this likeable and sizable a package. After satirizing so many pop-cultural icons to perfection, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is another demonstration in terms of love for detail and knowledge about the brand. I have no idea how they do it.

    With the step to next generation consoles it will be interesting to see what Travellers Tales can do to keep the Lego games feeling fresh going forwards. As a near-perfect mix of brands, Lego Marvel Super Heroes works as well as you would imagine, it’s just a shame that the framework the game is built on is starting to show its age.

    The Lego games have always been solid but never more than that. The tradition keeps going with Marvel Super Heroes. It’s charming and entertaining but also kind of monotonous. But if you like Marvel and good co-op you can do much worse than this.

    With no surprise the guys at Traveller's Tales are delivering a LEGO game that's still decent. But this year the studio has snoozed a bit with a game deprived from any innovation. Happily the Marvel license was chosen this year, and it can brig a special taste to the game by itself. Over a hundred characters from Stan Lee's imagination, a new scenario, a good gameplay and a nice lifespan, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a good LEGO game, maybe one of the most fun to play, but not necessarily a classic of the series, be it current gen' version or next gen'.

    This being the first modern day Lego game I've played, I have to say I'm really interested in this franchise. Lego Marvel Super Heroes will make all Marvel fanboys and Lego fans feel at home with a huge roster of characters. However, the lack of a proper free roam with using any character until you've beaten the single player is just unforgivable even if the story is pretty good. If there are any flaws with the story, it mostly revolves around with the objectives. This game does a horrible job at telling you what to do, I can't even begin to count how many times I got stuck and just ended up saying "screw this, I'm playing a different game!" But when you do beat the game and unlock free mode, it is unfortunately underwhelming. Characters you think could do certain things like crawling on walls are non existent. Heck, they even do this with Spider-Man, all he can do is stick to walls, not crawl them in free roam. In the end Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a good game and I recommend it to any Marvel or Lego fan, you'll have a fun time with it. Full Review »

    Absolutely super fun game with one of the best local COOP mode to date !
    The story is great and a lot of funny moments. Huge array of
    characters and abilities.

    The combat itself is very use and forgiving, dying is not an issue. The challenge of Lego Marvel is use and combine all different powers of your +100 character to collect all secret items, and access secret areas.
    The only negative side of the game is akward flying and dull vehicle driving.

    Even the graphic engine is last gen, this game shines on PS4 Crystal clear 1080 graphics with added lighting compared to ps3.

    Very recommended, especially for the great local coop

    Great story....Great Graphics....Funny Scenes.......Seeing Deadpool roaming around through missions this game is one of the best Lego Games i have played. Plenty of characters to play with and tons of collectibles to find throughout the story makes this game fun and time consuming at the same time. Great game for Co-op multiplayer is always fun especially for me since i have nefues that just admire my PS4 lol.

    Great Game Overall. Lego games never fail Lol 10/10
