Lego Marvel Super Heroes
brings a new Lego home console video game. Some years we get more than
one. The big Lego video game this year is Lego Marvel Super Heroes. This
Lego game is a comprehensive exploration of the Marvel Comics universe.
Complete with Stan Lee. Who happens to be all over the place. We can
find him multiple times.
Expect all kinds of secrets in Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Going through the main storyline is only part of this home console video game. Families can also replay them to achieve additional gold bricks. Different characters have different powers. Those powers are needed in certain places to unlock hidden stuff.
There are two main game play mechanics we do in Lego Marvel Super Heroes. We smash, crash, bash, and destroy anything in our path. We build items with bricks. If you get stuck somewhere then destroy all objects (that you can) in the environment. Then see if any blocks are hopping around when you are near them. If there are, then you can build something.
Specific characters are needed to get through certain areas. Like Captain America needs to throw his shield to trigger something. Or Cyclops needs to use his laser vision to melt down a golden object. By the way, there are multiple characters who can do some of the same things.
Lego Manhattan in Lego Marvel Super Heroes reminds me a lot of Lego City Undercover. Many of the same things can be found in both. Lego Marvel Super Heroes is all about Marvel so expect to see Marvel Comic buildings. Still it is fun to borrow someone's car and go driving around. Or fly around with characters like Iron Man, and Thor.
The biggest disappointment with Lego Marvel Super Heroes is the voice acting. The voice actors try to sound like the people from the movies, but the differences are very noticeable. There is also Marvel content in this game like Thor being called a god.
Boss battles in Lego Marvel Super Heroes are similar to past Lego video games. Families must find the right character, and thing to do to hurt the boss. Many times there will be multiple character swaps in the process. Lego Marvel Super Heroes is kind by offering a written hint on the screen. A basic reading ability is needed for that hint to be worthwhile.
Many of the areas in Lego Marvel Super Heroes are impressive looking. Families will be impressed by Hulk, Juggernaut, Rainbow Bridge, X-Men Mansion, Asteroid M, and more. The levels in Lego Marvel Super Heroes exhibit an intelligent design. Even when you have problems figuring out what to do next.
The typical TT Games humor is present in Lego Marvel Super Heroes. The comedic gold makes breaking apart all of those enemies worth the effort. Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a long game, especially if you want to unlock every character, and find all of the gold bricks.
