Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Marvel Super Heroes on the Nintendo 3DS is a scaled down version of the
home console video game. It still has fifteen main areas to play in. The
3DS version of Lego Marvel Super Heroes is broken down into three small
levels for each of those main areas.
Which means Lego Marvel Super Heroes on the 3DS fits the hand held concept masterfully. Families can play for a few minutes and then put it down. Or families can breeze through entire areas during extended game play sessions. There is one small quirk to doing that though.
What kind of quirk is in Lego Marvel Super Heroes? Each area has multiple different objectives. Each objective that is completed results in a gold brick. Well the first time you complete that objective in that level. This is important because players need so many golden bricks to play later levels.
What does all of this mean? You will have to replay levels in Lego Marvel Super Heroes to get enough golden bricks to progress through the game. Whereas in the home console version you can play from level to level without manufactured replay.
The timed objective in Lego Marvel Super Heroes is crazy. If you are going for that one, you have to forget about all other objectives. I found the timed one to be unrealistic at times. Miss it in some levels, and they have to be replayed. The same goes for dying.
Another interesting thing in the 3DS version of Lego Marvel Super Heroes is you have one character and one call in character. This felt off for a Lego game to me. I kept wanting to switch and would call them in for a powerful attack. Via Streetpass families can play Versus or Co-Op.
The graphics in Lego Marvel Super Heroes are small, but very crisp and clean. We have multiple enemy characters to battle. Some entire levels are boss levels. One of the objectives in certain levels is to destroy a certain number of the enemy characters. There are small movie scenes in Lego Marvel Super Heroes on the 3DS. Obviously scaled down from the home console version.
My biggest problem with the 3DS version of Lego Marvel Super Heroes is I always felt rushed. That objectives timer would make annoying noises during the last ten seconds. Usually it was too late to finish in time. I miss taking my time and exploring the levels without any pressure. I also had problems figuring out what to do for certain objectives.
