    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.

    Easily the best LEGO Marvel game. LEGO marvel 2 is a headache generator, and LEGO marvel superheroes is older so it’s not as good. This gameEasily the best LEGO Marvel game.

    I played through marvel super heroes and absolutely loved it so I had high expectation for this game......and I didn't like it. To be honestI played through marvel super heroes and absolutely loved it so I had high expectation for this game......and I didn't like it. To be honest this game does shine at a few things like less bugs and the some extra things such as random events that the previous game didn't have but it doesn't matter because this game is just not fun. The story is ripped of avengers age of Ultron so everything is very predictable unlike the last game where it was completely new and pretty good (don't judge me) I like the playable characters though but most Lego games get that right every time. The only reason for people to ever get this game is for collections there is no other reason to play this game in my opinion Expand

    Spider-man, Ant Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the X-men are just some of the many, many heroes that you won’t see in Lego: MarvelSpider-man, Ant Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the X-men are just some of the many, many heroes that you won’t see in Lego: Marvel Avengers. Hello everyone Brandon here, and I dove into the six hour campaign that was Lego: Marvel Avengers. Now that is six hours of story not dicking around; just to be clear, but as a grown ass adult I don’t have time for collecting everything known to man. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me dive into the story that makes this game…well exist really.

    I would call it a cash grab, but there are no movies out for months. I want to say that this is them out of ideas. Lego Marvel Super Heroes was an amazing game with hour upon hours of content, and with an original story. This game however is just The Avenger movies in Lego form. Normally when they adapt these franchises into Lego games they have three movies so that they can have a nice 8-9 hour game. This has two movies and it feels drawn out because of it. If they would’ve done a phase 1 game and next year released a phase 2 game my ton would be very different. With just the Avengers you get limited heroes and only four villains which is a stretch honestly. Compared to Lego Marvel Super Heroes where they had every hero you could think of same with a rouges gallery of villains. This game is just lacking in comparison. I will say though playing through these movies is just a stupid amount of fun. Playing through the scenes and going, “oh I remember that line, or hey here comes when Hulk grabs Loki” is just a ton of fun. The downfall of this is about half way through the game you’ll be thinking on how bad you’d rather just watch the movies then play this game.

    The game gets the feeling of the films down damn near exactly. They uses the same music cues when appropriate which just draws one. Of course being that it is a Lego game they have to make it cute and very, very family friendly. When showing how evil Loki is they have a scene where he is being just a dick to bunnies. They also have a very weird fascination with milkshakes. Seriously why milkshakes? Were they ever present in Avengers or even the MCU? I wouldn’t bring it up but this is a running gag that wasn’t funny or cute it was just off.

    The gameplay is that of a Lego game. The new thing they added which was pretty cool was special moves that two characters can perform to kill off a group of enemies. An example of this is say you have Thor and Captain America when you press O Thor will electrify his hammer and his Cap’s shield creating an electric shockwave. These moves feel like they are right out of the movie and you get the team feel of the Avengers. The worst thing this game does is the filler gameplay. These are levels that only exist because they realized they only had a three hour game. They have a whole mission of when Agent Coulson talks to Tony Stark at the beginning of the Avengers. I seriously didn’t need a while 15 minutes of that one scene.

    ​This game is a game that in this guy’s opinion did not need to exist at all. It is not a bad game it just feels like Travelers Tales isn’t really trying with this, or even putting that much into it. If this had more actual level like I said all of Phase 1 or something like that I would have a different tone. If you have a kid this is perfect because they will dive into this trying to 100% it. Plus most of their exposer is mostly the movies. As for you comic fans out there we have a better Lego game that is already out and cheaper. Honestly go buy Lego Marvel Super Heroes instead of this. I say barrow this game at best if you have a friend who has already purchased it, then just borrow it from them spend zero amount of money. I give this a generous 2.5/5.

    This is probably the worst of the LEGO lot. Not because it is broken but because they keep cramming fluff in. I'm so sick of the need toThis is probably the worst of the LEGO lot. 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.
