    Such a let-down, and flawed in almost every aspect that made the full version so special. The stages themselves are fun, as expected, because they're capturing the only aspect of TT's fantastic LEGO games: the gameplay. This is a perfect example as to why people are dubious over handheld ports of titles. These butchered remains of fantastic games are an unnecessary addition for fans of the full version, and unworthy examples for those without the console edition. Avoid.

The game play, is awesome without a doubt, being able to unlock heroes and villains (a huge win for a Loki fan-girl like me) and exploring more then just the Avengers. There's plenty of levels and the in-level challenges we see in many LEGO games aren't lacking in number. The only issues I see, though, is the voice actors aren't the same as the movie actors, the voices sounding like bad impressions throughout (with some exceptions, but it's to the ears of the beholder) and the cut-scenes are blurry. There isn't a straight-up tutorial, but with over 150 characters each with different abilities and weapons i can see why but there isn't a pop-up screen to show you controls. You figure it out as you go (I still can't figure out how to block...). Overall, I love the game despite it's minor setbacks and it grasps the humor of the Marvel world. Full Review »

The console version is a mediocre puzzle experience with tons of characters that you might not care about. The 3DS version has less characters, but the same amount of stages, but to a lesser extent. The first thing i want to talk about is the sound, one of the first things you notice about it, and its terrible. It literally sounds like the sounds were ripped from a regular DS game. One thing that the "universe in peril" version does that the console version does not, is that it displays missions for you when the level is loading, and you can pause the game to see how to do those missions. Each level is short, depending on how you play it. But it is significantly shorter than the console version. One gameplay mechanic they removed in the handheld version, is the ability to jump. That means you will not be facing any asinine platforming mechanics. Another thing they added in the handheld is when you die.... you actually die. Not exploding into studs and re-spawning, actually dying. So you could say its harder than the handheld version, but its a lot better. If you want to try this game, there is a free demo on the 3DS e-shop, wiiU, PS3, PC, gameboy advances, apple 1s, cardboard boxes, and every other platform to exist. Full Review »

It is easier and has a bunch of characters but it doesn't feel like a Lego game compared to others. The levels are better than usual, it is also a Marvel related of course, and I loved that about it. It is just that the game wasn't amazing. Full Review »
