LEGO Marvel Super Heroes PS4 review: with great power comes great playability
6 December 2013
Summary: Super heroes assemble for the best entry in the LEGO series to date. TT Games are the best at what they do and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is fantastic fun with masses of replayability � nuff said
Pros: Immense replayability, Wonderful graphics and sound, Superb irreverent treatment of the Marvel universe
Cons: Some minor level bugs, Infrequent camera control issues
Excerpt: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, the latest in the long running LEGO franchise from Traveler’s Tales, may be their best effort to date. It seems they are intent on improving each time out (if only we were so lucky with other series!), as wholly independent stories complete with voice acting add weight and intrigue to familiar gameplay. I won’t bother explaining how the LEGO games work – by this point, if you’ve played one of them then you have the general idea.
Excerpt: I've battled robots, supervillains, and henchmen beyond number through the streets of New York, through the halls of Asgard, under the sea, on the deck of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and in space. And I'm only moments away from foiling Doctor Doom's nefarious, world-threatening plans, whatever they may be. Lego Marvel Super Heroes has arrived, transforming the Marvel universe into a Lego playground bursting with wit and diversity.
Pros: Inventive levels always give you new things to do, A big, explorable world and all sorts of goodies to unlock keep you coming back for more, Great sense of humor
Excerpt: Lego Marvel Super Heroes is, for the most part, plastic proof that familiarity works - providing a game still has the love and imagination to retain the excitement and fun of its core mechanics. Said familiarity works both ways, of course. Lego Marvel Super Heroes does almost nothing to convert non-fans of the long-running franchise, but it takes huge strides to ensure that lovers of both Lego and every Marvel universe under the sun feel right at home.
Excerpt: Over the past few years, the LEGO games coming out of Traveller's Tales have been progressively bigger and more detailed, and there have only been a few games where they have penned their own story (as opposed to adapting an existing book or film series). LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is one of these games, and the experience is not only a plot that involves pretty much every major Marvel character, but also provides a massive open-world experience similar to that found in...
Conclusion: Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a great experience both in terms of Lego games and Marvel ones. It features a huge roster of heroes and villains from the comic books and adds a great story with a lot of hilarious moments, while delivering a solid gameplay experience. There are a few moments when you might get stuck or annoyed by the clunky level design or companion AI, but these are few and far between.
Pros: +Impressive roster of heroes and villains, +Refined Lego gameplay, +Impressive voice acting and dialog
Cons: -Some objectives aren't obvious, -Hint system needs work, -Companion AI isn't that bright
