Lego Marvel Super Heroes
I wanted to like Lego Marvel Super Heroes on the PS Vita so much.
Sadly this game has too many flaws for it to enter near the realm of
enjoyable. The first flaw in Lego Marvel Super Heroes is having to
completely redo an entire level after dying. Other Lego games let
players respawn after a death. A few studs are lost. Some of those lost
studs can be recovered if players are quick enough. And did not die in a
The second fundamental flaw in Lego Marvel Super Heroes is having to go back into levels and redo them to earn different achievements/medals. Each of these achievements/medals count toward unlocking new areas. So you may need fifty or sixty to get to the next level. This is annoying and frustrating on so many levels. After beating a level we should be able to go to the next level. Lego Marvel Super Heroes makes us constantly back track.
The third fundamental flaw in Lego Marvel Super Heroes on the PS Vita is it is way too easy to die. I could see being denied a respawn if it was tough to die. I bit the bullet so many times in so many different ways in Lego Marvel Super Heroes that exploration was discouraged. Why check something out if it will just kill you? Doing levels over again got really old in Lego Marvel Super Heroes. To the level of frustration.
The movie cut scenes are the same as in the home console version of Lego Marvel Super Heroes. That reminds me the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita versions of Lego Marvel Super Heroes are pretty much identical. Players punch, kick, and shoot their way through a vast array of the same looking enemies. We go to some cool locations, and build a bit here or there. Lego Marvel Super Heroes is mainly about destruction.
The final fundamental flaw in Lego Marvel Super Heroes is the controls. I would try to swipe at multiple targets to progress and the game did not recognize it. I would try to shoot explosive barrels from a distance and the game wanted to have my character run over there and hit it. My frustration with the spotty controls in Lego Marvel Super Heroes grew as I played this hand held video game.
