    More of the same, that's what LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 offers. And franchise fans can only cheer for the biggest, most faithful and best LEGO game to date.

    While it's true that a LEGO game will never surprise anybody, the individual games can still be tons of fun – especially when you like the property involved. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a blast for Marvel fans, with hundreds of characters great and small, 20 huge levels with full co-op support, and a vast and beautiful open world to explore. True believers will get more than their money's worth from this one.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a tried-and-true game for young kids everywhere who like the Marvel universe. There is a bit too much frustration with some parts of the game and the fighting can be very ho-hum for anyone out of diapers. That said, the humor, collection of heroes, length of the game, and overall quality makes this a no-brainer for kids everywhere. Just be ready to help 'em out.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a fun, entertaining game and a love letter to the entire history of Marvel comics. At the same time it supposes a game of Lego more than competent that suffers from all the weaknesses already classic in the saga. Shallow and ambitious, but very funny and enjoyable if we are fans of Marvel and his humor. A must to play as a couple.

    A fan-pleasing odyssey into Marvel lore that's a little overshadowed by past glories. [Jan 2018, p.86]

    Perhaps both the best and worst LEGO game available on Xbox One.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is in an odd spot where only diehard comic book fans will really appreciate all of its references, but those that already care about these characters will want to see them interact in more meaningful ways. Instead of giving players an interesting original story, it’s just yet another by-the-numbers LEGO title that will leave players occasionally laughing between bouts of frustration between its dull combat and often counterintuitive puzzles. Ultimately, this is one brick that doesn’t have to be collected.

Unfortunately no changes are evident in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, but this doesn’t hold it back in terms of the fun factor. If you like an array of characters then you will love this game. Each character has been done really well and the best thing is that no character has been left undervalued. As usual with LEGO game’s there is a huge amount of content to sink your teeth into and I’ve already sunk a huge amount of hours in and it still remains fun, which is great. You will notice though that the game does suffer with a few technical issues and these can be game-breaking at times. I also suffered with a few problems when it came to the controls in the game, and whenever they went unresponsive it did make me become frustrated quite considerably. Something that will ease that frustration is the story in the game. The story is very interesting and packed full of humour, and the best thing is that the humour used is actually pretty funny. The campaign in the game works perfectly with the story and has a lot of variety, and I only wish there was this much variety with the gameplay mechanics. I found the presentation side of the game to be extremely well done, especially when it came to the sound design. The sound design is definitely one of the best experiences I’ve had in a LEGO game so far and a special shout out has to go to the voice actors. At the end of the day fans of LEGO game’s will once again find enjoyment here, but I must admit that some parts of the game’s style are starting to grow stale. Some changes are definitely needed in my opinion and when you combine this with the technichal issues the game has then you can become quite frustrated. It is however not a bad game and it has lots of fun throughout, there are however better LEGO games out there but it does just enough to get a thumbs up from me. Expand
