    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.

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

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is one of the most solid entries in the LEGO franchise to date.

    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.

    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'.

    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

    Lego Marvel Superheroes is a fun game to play especially for Lego fans. This game has a funny story and it bring back old characters from the past Marvel Comics. For me this game is for casual gamers instead of hardcore gamers Expand

    This is a great game. My problem with it is completely personal. I just don't find the LEGO games to be very much fun past the story. I get bored replaying the whole game to get unlockables. Loved playing all the Marvel characters until I got a little weary of LEGO NYC, even though the city is remarkably well done. If you're into heavy and deep story lines or gore and graphic fighting, you know this isn't for you. However, it's a great game for kids. If you have your own or you have guests with children that need to be occupied so you can have some adult time then buy this game immediately. Do the same if you have a partner that is rarely into game playing. It's easy to turn on for an hour and play some co-op without committing to a complex, dramatic, or long story. Expand

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a for real open world superhero game for game for kids. If you ever wanted to share the grandeur of a game like GTA or Infamous with a kid, this game is it. The open world LEGO New York is gigantic and full of its own secrets and mini-missions. On the PS4, draw distances are huge, though the game also fakes a bit of realism with textures. My son's main complaint is that the buildings are not made entirely out of LEGOs. I agree, a LEGO world should be bricks from top to bottom.

    The game has a bevy of glitches that require a restart. Most of the glitches are of the variety that the game runs fine, but whatever object or action you need to continue has been lost from the level. This is not something my kids understand and certainly not something you expect from a console game. Parental guidance is advised (as in you need to guide the kids to restart the game ever other play session).

    The scope of the game is huge. The number of heroes, voices, and actions are at the level of any triple-A title. Iron Man alone receives a half dozen suits including the notorious Hulk-buster armor. Even non-Marvel characters are playable like the Statue of Liberty herself. While some of the aesthetics follow "Avengers" movie, the story seems straight out of the "Superhero Squad" cartoon show. This is good for my kids, as they are way to young to see PG-13 but very much enjoy the kids cartoon. My daughter's main complaint is the scarcity of female superheroes, and again I agree. Games are for everyone.

    The gameplay itself is fun and kid friendly. Villains are defeated by solving puzzles and using team work. Villains are not defeated by precise control movements and twitchy reaction times. The LEGO characters are sometimes disassembled by walking in front of a laser beam or falling from a building, but they instantly pop back into existence. My kids were surprisingly free of frustration and that is what a fun game is all about.

    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. Expand

    They game is fun as are most Lego games, but on ALL formats it sufferes from terrible framerate drops which is a sign of a rushed out half polished game. Expand
