    The best game in the franchise and amounts to everything the development team has aspired to so far. It's something that needs to be experienced to be truly enjoyed, just like a masterpiece.

    After the glorious Lego Dimensions every “classic” Lego game is a step back. But within these boundaries Lego Marvel’s Avengers is still worth your time.

    Combat in this instalment is far more fluid and exciting, characters are unique in design and there are plenty of abilities spread throughout.

    Where last year's LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham proved that there's still life in the LEGO series, LEGO Marvel's Avengers is proof positive that cracks are beginning to show in TT Games' once bulletproof franchise. A severe lack of variety lets the side down, indicating that it's high time the LEGO series receive a much-needed shot in the arm.

    LEGO Marvel's Avengers is clearly the best MCU movie adaptation to date. That being said it unfortunately isn't the best LEGO title. The game is fun to play and respectful to the source material but sadly doesn't feel as epic as it could have been.

    LEGO Marvels Avengers is the worst LEGO-game in years. The game is colourful and fun, but the story is crap such as the puzzles and the glitches.

    Playing through LEGO Marvel's Avengers may trigger the sense of déjà vu if you've experienced any past games in the series. There isn't anything new to see here, and the franchise really needs a serious revamp if it's going to continue.

You collect studs and bricks to unlock levels, characters, vehicles and more. Then besides that you have the levels which are based on scenes in major Marvel movies.

    Since LEGO decided to use big hub worlds for their games, the levels have become less interesting. It's less about solving puzzles and using interesting gameplay mechanics but more about mashing the X button on everything.

    On the upside, the hub worlds are amazing if you are a fan of Marvel and LEGO. It's fun to collect the golden bricks and characters in the city to unlock even more characters from your favorite Marvel movies or comics, although they could have been more creative with the characters instead of making a million versions of Iron Man.

    I do recommend that you play this game with someone else in split screen, cause it makes the game so much more fun. Especially if you're playing with your child or your younger siblings. It's the perfect way to introduce them to the Marvel Universe.

Not because it is broken but because they keep cramming fluff in. I'm so sick of the need to create more and more "hub" worlds to fill with useless stuff just so you can say your game takes longer. The main levels gets shorter as the hub worlds get larger. Utterly boring and useless. Give me solid levels and dump the hubs altogether. This is probably the first LEGO game I won't 100% because it is simply too boring running around the hub worlds doing the same crap over and over again.

    I've never liked the talking they added to the games. It makes the LEGO experience less than what it should be. But reusing the movie voices in the game is horribly bad. It completely breaks the game flow and adds absolutely no value.

    LEGO games are at their best when they focus on movies and not their own story line (Marvel Super Heroes I'm looking at you). That is the only thing that makes this better than the last LEGO Marvel game. But the stories are stitched together like an afterthought. There is no real consistency and the level design themselves are pretty bad. Beyond any other LEGO game this is all about fighting endless waves of enemies for the sole purpose of fighting endless waves of enemies. Part of the joy of LEGO was exploring the environment but that is now relegated to the hub worlds. In each level you rarely have time to explore as you continuely fight people. It is easiest to just avoid them until you cannot interact with the environment because the same buttons are used for everything.

    There are bugs in the game including cameras that tend to go out of control. On Barton's Farm there is a gold brick inside a crate you have to open by doing various things. The problem is that when you get close to the crate the camera suddenly switches to the back side of the crate which happens to put you inside a barn. There is also issues with flying in general but also the fact that flying characters won't auto-land anymore.

    Overall this game could have been fun except the recent changes to the LEGO formula that break the experience altogether. TT needs to go back to basics and what made the games fun. They remind me of the Assassin's Creed franchise. They should probably just shelf the brand for a while.

    Décidément, les jeux Légo pédalent dans la choucroute.... c'est toujours la même formule percluse de rhumatismes depuis belle lurette !Décidément, les jeux Légo pédalent dans la choucroute.... c'est toujours la même formule percluse de rhumatismes depuis belle lurette ! faudrait peut-être penser à vous renouveler les **** gars parce que là ça devient casse-bonbons (pour rester poli).

    Surtout que les commandes et la maniabilité déjà très perfectibles sont devenues super balourdes dans cet épisode des Merdeveleries imbéciles (oh merde, un gros mot, je voulais rester poli ou du moins raisonnablement courtois dans un jeu destiné aux gamins -bon ben tant pis). Et la caméra qui reste désespérément fixe, c'est devenu insupportable ça aussi...

    Et le farmage des briques et des **** machins à ramasser est toujours aussi lancinant, de même que le bourrinage en règle lors des combats. C'est toujours lourdingue à jouer, vu qu'on est toujours mal guidé et qu'il faut deviner comment débloquer le script suivant dans cette progression erratique et merdique (changer de perso, viser tel bidule, activer le machin, détruire le truc, construire le bordel etc).

    Bon, c'est assez joli bien sûr mais les voix françaises sont un peu ratées, la musique est envahissante et l'humour gogol fait long feu : du coup je me suis vengé sur le disque et l'ai recontruit en confettis de plastique. Même si c'est pas recyclable.
