    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.

    The main attractions are set-pieces that play heavily on the series' combat systems. [Apr 2016, p.95]

    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.

    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.

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers is a step forward gameplay wise but it's also a lazy rehash of well known features, characters and dynamics.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pays lip service to the subject material admirably - but prioritises caution over innovation. [March 2016, p.68]

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
