Lego Marvel Super Heroes PC Review
True PC gaming
5 December 2013
Summary: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a fantastic game providing you can overlook the QTEs and technical problems. The story is immensely entertaining and proceeds like a Marvel comic book. Existing LEGO puzzles and mechanics have been refined and built around your favourite superhero’s powers. The main campaign lasts around 9 hours with 100% completion ratio taking at least 30+ hours.
Conclusion: For fans of the Lego series, or of Marvel, this game is a must. With over 150 individual characters, a lengthy story, and plenty of side missions, collectibles and objectives, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is worthy of the next-gen title. It's a lot of fun to play through the first time, and just as much fun the 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Would highly recommend.
Excerpt: Lego Marvel Super Heroes is an open-world sandbox game from Travelers’ Tales (TT Games). If you played Lego City Undercover or Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, you have a rough idea of what to expect. The story is simple, and serves as a good excuse to bring in every villain and hero they possibly can: Silver Surfer crashes on Earth and his board breaks up into pieces, called Cosmic Bricks. Dr.
Excerpt: “Two great tastes that taste great together…” If you were about to sing the finish to that famous tag line using “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups” you would be historically correct, but I dare say that when WB Games and TT Games got together one day to “play” these words were heard in the executive conference room: “Hey! You got your LEGO’s in my comic books. No…you got your comic books in my LEGO’s”. And magic was born.
Conclusion: Lego Marvel Super Heroes may not only be the best Lego game, but one of the best super hero games. With an insanely large cast of characters and some of the funniest writing I’ve seen this year, Lego Marvel is incredibly entertaining and some of the most fun I’ve had with a game this year. I’ve never played a game that consistently made me feel good as I played it and never left me bored after the ten hour story.
Excerpt: Some of my favorite moments in comics have always been the ones where heroes from different books interact with each other. Whether it be Spider-man and Daredevil hanging out in Hell's Kitchen or The Fantastic Four and Captain America teaming up to take on an enemy threatening New York; there's just something about knowing that all of the Marvel Universe is connected.
Summary: LEGO and TT Games really know how to take an existing IP and produce some quality titles that are enjoyable by a wide range of age groups. As a comic book fan, I was pretty excited to see them tackle Marvel with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Like previous LEGO games, LEGO Marvel Super Hero presents a story featuring a wide array of characters. A great number of Marvel super heroes and villains show up, and each one is extremely well done.
Game Review: Lego Marvel Super Heroes [PC/PS3/PS4/WiiU/Xbox360/XB1]

Excerpt: Just about everyone likes escapism and to live in a fantasy world full of impossible possibilities. Unfortunately for most of us, we mere humans are not known for having super powers that let us fly, command thunder or leap tall sky scrapers in a single bound. It’s why we comic book and popcorn movie fans love such franchises as DC Comics and the Marvel universe.
Pros: +The most packed Lego game roster ever
Cons: -Even lower difficulty curve then previous games may put off some
You won’t like me when I’m angry… — LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Summary: There’s very little wrong with LEGO Marvel Superheroes — it succeeds in a surprising number of ways. There are practically zero instances of blatant failure on the part of the developers, voice actors, writers, and other assorted ‘big picture’ guys who made this release a reality. That being said, there are a few cases where you may get frustrated from an overly challenging puzzle, or on-screen directions that don’t seem to make any sense.
Pros: Gorgeous graphics that bring the LEGO universe to life, Great story mode with tons of unlockable characters, Strikes a nice balance between puzzles and button-mashing
Cons: Level objectives can be unclear at times, Somewhat repetitive level structure, Controls can feel funky on a PC
