    Having loved Lego Marvel SH, I preordered this game as soon as I saw it was available. I figured $80 was worth it for the countless hours of entertainment that it was sure to bring. Boy was I disappointed.

    I first tried getting in to it right when it was released, and something just felt lacking so I figured I was just a little tired of Lego games at the time. The past week I've gotten
    Having loved Lego Marvel SH, I preordered this game as soon as I saw it was available. I figured $80 was worth it for the countless hours of entertainment that it was sure to bring. Boy was I disappointed.

    I first tried getting in to it right when it was released, and something just felt lacking so I figured I was just a little tired of Lego games at the time. The past week I've gotten back at it, and here's my thoughts.

    Pros:

    - a TON of characters, from the very popular to the obscure
    - A lot of variability amongst levels/stages
    - Some pretty clever puzzles, but not especially hard
    - A decent story, not sure if it's from the comics but it's quite clever
    - Great graphics, great dialogue, pretty good voice acting

    Cons

    - The UI is an absolute joke. Doing something as simple as viewing the characters you have unlocked is extremely difficult because they are not shown based on any sort of logic

    - There's nothing really new to show for, basically if you've played any other Lego game you know EXACTLY what you'll get; no surprises

    - No X-Men of FF. This is basically criminal and shows how absolutely brutal Disney is when it comes to licensing

    - A ton of bugs; everything from random dialogue that has no relevance to the current situation to spontaneously spawning in random locations. Basically made the game unplayable

    - As much as the story is interesting, it's also pretty boring. Every level is "meet boss, chase boss, kill boss". Chronopolis is not near as interesting as the open world of LMSH

    - the controls are absolutely pathetic. Switching to the character you want is way too diifficult and way too often pressing a button causes the game to think you briefly held the button so you do a competely different move

    - The AI is also pathetic. Your AI controlled team will not be anywhere near you most of the time when you change to them, or they'll be sitting on the edge of a cliff or something else stupid

    Overall, this game should not have been released as it is. Way too many issues, making it a chore to play and not recommended at all

    One of the best, most enjoyable games in the wide selection of Lego titles, a real superhero extravaganza. [01/2018, p.39]

    Outside of the story levels, however, it struggles to truly celebrate the rich Marvel comics universe. [Jan 2017, p.87]

    Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a very stereotyped Lego game. Most of the gameplay element can be found in other Lego series, and the difficulty of this game obviously cannot satisfy hardcore gamers. However, this game is good enough for the target audience. Maybe we do not need to focus on the overall quality, fun and happiness is the key to its own value.
