    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.

    LEGO Marvel’s Avengers’ ties to the cinematic universe make it less imaginative than its comic book predecessor, but excellent superhero gameplay makes up for it. This is one of the best LEGO games yet and a must-play for any Marvel fan.

    LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is still the best LEGO game in recent memory and it could be the catalyst for greater ventures in the series’ future.

    The same old song with some new tricks under its sleeve. It will be more than enough for LEGO games lovers, but remains as childish as always.

    The sequel to the best Lego game delivers, although the predecessor is a superb specimen in almost every way. The monotonic game mechanics show some signs of evolution, so hopefully there frustrating button-mashing is replaced by something else. One can always hope. [March 2016]

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers is everything you expect. Action, humor, a lot of characters and many collectibles that will make you spend hours and hours playing this game.

    Despite my issues with the order in which each film is presented I really enjoyed playing through abridged versions of the MCU.

    A huge roster of very different characters, and not even poor soundbites can detract from the overall package. Fans of Marvel and LEGO alike will enjoy the heck out of everything this has to offer.

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

    Clumsy puzzles and weird voice clips never dull the joy of smashing everything and everyone in this world to pieces.

    These niggles aside, LEGO Marvel's Avengers is another mighty adaptation from TT Games, with as much wit, magic and authenticity as its other brick-rendered offerings.

    Lego Marvel’s Avengers is another great entry in the brick-based franchise, and fans of both series, and in particular Lego Marvel Superheroes, will likely lap it up.

    Mostly more of the same, but better refined, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is great fan service and highly entertaining family fun. Easily the best regular LEGO title for a while.

    The quantity and quality of gameplay experiences in LEGO Marvel's Avengers is staggering and it's a game that you will have an extremely hard time walking away from.

    Taking into account the amount of LEGO games out there, it's surprising that TT Games manages to create new adventures that still are fun and engaging. Unless you're tired of LEGO, it's a pretty good option.

    I was absolutely delighted by the trademark TT Games humor and playfulness, and I absolutely intend to spend many hours in the game's free mode playing with my favorite superheroes and looking for Stan Lee in every single stage (he makes several priceless cameos). Several obtuse, tedious, or otherwise frustrating objectives and some level flow issues keep me from giving this an unreserved recommendation, but like the movies on which it's based, Lego Marvel's Avengers is a wild ride that many will come to cherish and want to revisit again and again.

    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.
  18. 80
    Capitalizing on the incredibly popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, LEGO Marvel's Avengers is what you'd expect in a LEGO game, complete with tons of playable characters and a lot of replay value.

    It combined TT Games’ ability to translate a popular film franchise into a fun and family-friendly experience while also adding some new tricks, such as the stud multiplier and combo attacks. And even though I was quite familiar with the source material, I still couldn’t help but to pay close attention to its story as it was delivered in such a unique and fun package.

    A great experience for Marvel and Lego enthusiasts. Without that bonus it's a just a bit above average.

    Seeing how TT Games pokes fun at Marvel’s films is worth the price of entry alone. The gameplay is also quite good, but it is a little rough around the edges. The biggest strike against it is secret characters aren’t as noteworthy as those in Lego Marvel Super Heroes.

    Fans of the LEGO games and Marvel movies will enjoy it regardless of the minor issues.

    An enjoyable enough Avengers game, but it needs to be more Tony Stark and less Bruce Banner.
  24. Feb 3, 2016

    Fans of the LEGO games and Marvel movies will enjoy it. Gamers in general feel the usual formula, they can let it go. The TT Games team needs to evolve the gameplay. The shadow of Lego Marvel Super Heroes remains.

    As a whole, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers will entertain the young gamers in the household, while providing short spurts of entertainment to seasoned ones. Avengers may not be the best in the LEGO series, but it does fit firmly within the LEGO gaming family.
  26. Feb 11, 2016

    Another good, yet predictable iteration in the LEGO series, with the usual mix of humour, references to the Marvel universe and a gazillion of characters to unlock. The gameplay works, and the game is really fun to play, but the formula really needs a breath of fresh air.

    LEGO by numbers... Which isn't really a bad thing.

    It's a classic Lego game, fun and entertaining. A bit more care in the "secondary" movies would've been appreciated, but it's still a treat for Marvel's fans.

    It’s a good game, just not quite the masterpiece it would have felt like even a few short years ago.
  30. Feb 2, 2016

    The team attacks are a solid addition to the game, but Marvel's Avengers does not succeed in being better than LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Thankfully there is a lot of fan-service and loads of content to specifically please Marvel- and LEGO-fans.
  31. Feb 1, 2016

    The Lego Games formula is successful for its references and funny presentation, in that case the Marvel Cinematic Universe fans could be happy with this game. Nothing new on Lego Marvel's The Avengers, hundreds of playable characters and repetitive mechanics on a familiar trip.

    If you haven’t played Lego Marvel Super Heroes, I would advise you to pick that up first unless you’re a fanatic about the Marvel films. Either way suit up for some of Lego’s mightiest heroes.

    A new entry that lacks originality but offers lots of hours of fun and secrets to uncover with the Marvel heroes.

    Take a haphazard trip through the Marvel Cinematic Universe with all of your favorite Avengers—as well as a whole host of B-level Marvel characters you may or may not have ever heard of. Gameplay is fun, and individual levels all play great, but LEGO Marvel’s Avengers fails to come together in as cohesive a fashion as the material deserves.
  35. As with pretty much any Lego game (except perhaps Dimensions), what it really comes down to is whether you’re tired of the Lego game shtick, whether you happen to be a fan of whatever pop culture property TT Games happens to have on tap, and whether you have someone to sit beside you on the couch so you can play and laugh together – these games are always much more fun experienced with a friend of family member.
  36. 75
    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.

    There is a lot to do in LEGO Marvel’s Avengers, but you won’t find many new elements if you are familiar with this franchise.

    Very good graphics, great character design, but LEGO's typical gameplay is becoming a little bit tedious.

    As always, [Freeplay] adds a great deal of value and content to the game, and is likely to be where you’ll have most fun.

    Ultimately, your decision to give LEGO Avengers a try will depend whether you grew tired of the formula we've seen in countless LEGO games so far. The humor, action-paced levels and co-op action is there, but it's really the same game we've played already.

    LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is about the purest and slickest LEGO game you could hope to play.

    A solid entry but it’s getting a bit tiresome now.
  44. Feb 24, 2016

    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.

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers will make you smile with tons of content, fan service and its tongue-in-cheek tone if you are a kid or an otherwise obsessive fan of the franchise, if not, you will grow tired of its repetitive formula and design flaws very soon.
  46. Feb 11, 2016
    70
    LEGO Marvel's Avengers is a step forward gameplay wise but it's also a lazy rehash of well known features, characters and dynamics.
  47. 70
    A few new wrinkles such as the team-up attacks and the really cool audio part of the presentation are quite welcome, and I think these superhero games lend themselves to the TT Games better than most genres due to the large number of unique skills. It's reliable fun, but we keep saying this - TT Games needs to start bringing some genuinely original new ways of looking at LEGO, or the scores will start to fall as people get very tired of doing the same thing over and over again.
  48. Feb 9, 2016

    There is quite a list of conditions you have to meet if you want to fully enjoy LEGO Marvel’s Avengers: you have to be a big fan of LEGO and of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you need a high tolerance for silly humour and it certainly helps if you haven’t played a dozen previous LEGO games (recently). Does all of this apply to you? Have fun with the biggest package of digital LEGO entertainment since LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.

    Another blockbuster, another LEGO game. Still enjoyable but with nothing really new to offer.

    It’s a shame that certain characters don’t make the cut for legal reasons, but even without the likes of Spiderman and Wolverine, a cast of 200+ is unlikely to leave anyone feeling particularly short-changed.

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers assembles the building blocks of a good LEGO game adequately, delivering decent puzzles, comical cut-scenes, and some feel-good fiction for the whole family. However, the formula's definitely starting to wear thin, and it has some niggles that could do with being Iron Man-ed out.
  52. Feb 1, 2016

    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.

    After the inventiveness of Lego Dimensions, it's tough to go back to a game that follows the old Lego formula. But Marvel's Avengers mostly staves off franchise fatigue thanks to its fast-paced, cheery nature. If you've played a Lego game in recent years then you'll know what to expect: another familiar and fun adventure that you can enjoy with your kids.

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers is fun, but unfortunately restricted by stubbornly sticking to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    The latest release from TT Games shows signs of an aging formula for handling the LEGO franchise. Most of the blunders should have been caught in an early brainstorm.

    Not even a Hulk can save Lego Marvel's Avengers from its tiresome gameplay mechanics. Smashing apart bricks isn't fun anymore, and, unfortunately, Developer TT Games doesn't realize that yet. Even a wide variety of content can't save the game from being boring to play. Recommended for kids with posters of Iron Man in their rooms-and a pass for everyone else.
  58. Feb 17, 2016

    There is a lot to explore in this game, but unfortunately putting LEGO and Marvel together simply does not mix too well. A few small errors make keep this game from feeling truly epic, but there is still enough to get out of it if you are a fan of Lego or Marvel.

    It's the exact same game that you've been playing for years on end now, dressed up in the mighty Marvel manner of fan service that made the films such a big success.

    The light-hearted fun gameplay is still prevalent here and while the game has many good points, the disappointments within LEGO Marvel's Avengers means it never really live up to its potential.
  61. Jan 29, 2016

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers has nothing really new to offer, apart from the 200 characters you can play with. It's still confused, it's still repetitive and it's very similar to the other LEGO games you've tried till now.

    While it's shackled by its source material and clearly running out of steam, there are nonetheless flashes of brilliance in TT Games' latest Lego adventure. [Issue#267, p.64]

    The Lego concept is starting to go on auto pilot, and Lego Avengers does very little to change that. It’s charming and fun, but the puzzle design and the combat system both could been way better. For Lego fans it’s probably better to check out Lego Movie Videogame or Lego The Hobbit, even if this is still a good game.

    Despite being a mechanically sound entry in Traveller's Tales' long-running series, it's hard to recommend Marvel's Avengers over Lego Marvel Super Heroes—the latter is still superior in nearly every way.

    You have quite a collection of spectacular failures here in cohesively telling the story of these two films.

    LEGO Dimensions felt like much-needed innovation for a game series that has seen little change since its inception in 2006. Unfortunately, LEGO Marvel Avengers didn’t take many of those innovations to heart.

    It's a fun mindless romp through a couple of interesting setpieces, but not a whole lot more than that when it comes down to it.

    Lego Marvel's Avengers is often fun to watch, and some of the Lego magic is there. The humor and goofiness keep things moving when the rest of the game threatens to grind to a halt. But not even Lego charm can overcome all of Lego Marvel's Avengers' design and technical problems.
  69. Feb 1, 2016

    Radio messages from Peggy Carter! Slapstick with Thor and Hulk! Lego Marvel's Avengers should be a delightful romp with beloved heroes, but it’s a clunky chore.

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