    There are still some small annoyances preventing Lego Marvel's Avengers from being an outstanding game, but TT Games has shown it still has some magic up its sleeve to keep improving upon its long-running franchise.

    Its more direct focus does nothing to water down the grand, and often times hilarious, experiences one comes to expect from the franchise. It may not add much that is new, but it is a prime example of why you shouldn’t mess too much with a good thing.

    Another fun adventure through the LEGO universe with Marvel's Avengers that is a good all-ages game.

    The story is straight from the movies, and is enjoyable for kids of any age – indeed, fans of the Marvel universe will likely have fun here too. Some technical hiccups and the occasional unclear objective can hamper your progress, but these can all be overcome in a game that exudes a fun-loving attitude throughout.

    The entertainment you'd get through a LEGO game is a given and it's a fact for Marvel's Avengers too, but the truth is that the concept is getting more tiresome with every new addition to Tt Games' franchise.

    Oh, you know, same old same old. Incredibly, though, it still works, and this new LEGO game in particular surprises with an amazing amount of playable characters and a fun campaign. Still, the formula is becoming really stale. It’s definitely time for a big change.

    Focusing on the movies rather than the comics has seen Marvel go from inspiring the best Lego game to one of the worst.

The game is funThe game is good and for fans of Lego games, The Avenges and Lego Marvel Super Heroes it is an easy recommendation to make. The game is fun and the new combo system and special moves are fun and adds variety to combat. The voice sampling is serviceable though I would have preferred new voice actors recording the movie dialog myself, it could have enhanced the humor IMO. That said it, doesn't break from the established by TT formula and going forward they will have to shake it up at some point in the very near future. Expand

    It was only a matter of time before the Lego collect-a-thons adapted Marvel Studios’ critically praised film franchise. It’s just a shame itIt was only a matter of time before the Lego collect-a-thons adapted Marvel Studios’ critically praised film franchise. It’s just a shame it came too little, too late.
    The latest title in the series, Lego Marvel’s The Avengers, sends players through a handful of Marvel’s superhero flicks, including both Captain America and Avengers films, Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3. The presentation is great, of course, with film scenes being played out by Lego minifigs and voice clips from the actual films, but there is little more than that.
    The story is obviously straightforward — if you’ve seen the movies. But there’s enough here to give you a few laughs per level. The goals of this title remain the same: Collect as many Lego pieces as possible, build and solve puzzles, defeat bosses and enjoy playing as a blocky version of your favorite superhero.
    The game is a bit glitchy, though, and characters’ powers may not work just right. But that’s not without reason. As part of a welcome addition to the series, Lego Marvel’s The Avengers introduces team-up combos, in which two characters close to each other can pull off a pretty sweet finisher move. Iron Man blasts his repulsor beams off Captain America’s shield, Black Widow and Hawkeye zipline together and more. It’s just fun.
    But as a whole, the game is lacking.
    In 2013, Lego Marvel Super Heroes was released and gave us essentially all we would and could want from a Marvel Lego game. It had tons of characters, content and an open world. It was wild, wacky fun. This game, following the films’ lead, feels like it should have come first.
    Characters like the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and all of the X-Men (aside from Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, for obvious reasons) are absent in this year’s title, but the game is supplemented by fantastic characters like Ms. Marvel and Lady Thor.
    We just wish they were all in the same darn game. Heck, there are two really obscure Guardians of the Galaxy in this game, but the original crew is nowhere to be found. Someone explain that.
    Unfortunately (or fortunately if you’ve got the dough), there’s a season pass for the title already available, with content packs based on Ant-Man and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War already in the works.
    In addition to the odd character implementation, the game itself reuses a lot of the same content from Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Sure, New York got a glossy facelift and all of the animations are a bit better, but we need more than that.
    The set pieces from the films are a step in the right direction — let’s just keep going down that road.
    In terms of difficulty, the game is simple enough to get the hang of and enough to keep players of all ages interested. Overall, it’s a solid title with some interesting things missing. We just wish it could have come sooner, because the last game spoiled us.

    Lego Marvel Avengers is an underwhelming sequel to Lego Marvel Super Hero’s. It’s levels are bland and really don’t have anything to it. TheLego Marvel Avengers is an underwhelming sequel to Lego Marvel Super Hero’s. It’s levels are bland and really don’t have anything to it. The new team up feature is magnificent but the game doesn’t use it a lot. The hub areas are impressive you can now explore more than just the city, however the places beside the city are forgettable at best. The roster is awesome but some characters feel the same. The quest and the missions are fun but get repetitive, however I wish there was more in depth development on the levels. Overall the game is fun to free roam in but the levels are a disastrous mess that it makes the game boring at times. (2/5 Play It If Your A Fan Of The Series) Expand
