Excerpt: My young video game players range from 5-11 in age and from just learning to preteen expertise. They all enjoy playing, and the game often carries out into the yard through their imaginations.
Summary: I have seen scores of LEGO games for many years, but I have never been compelled to pick one up. The games struck me as infantile and just cheesy. However, I am an avid fan of Marvel just about anything, so when I saw this game released, I was conflicted. Should I pick it up, since it has so many Marvel characters available to be played? Should I avoid it, since it looks really silly? The love of Marvel won out. I am glad it did. This game is pretty good.
Summary: This is a great game to play with 2 people, especially when one of them is an inexperienced gamer. Whether it be a non-gamer roommate, a significant other, or a child, everyone can have fun with this lego game. With everyone all caught up in Marvel at the moment it's topical as well. I only gave it four stars just because some of the controls are awkward(movement and two person camera control), and the difficulty of the puzzles can vary a great deal.
