LEGO Marvel's Avengers
Top Critic Average
A half-hearted recreation of some fun movies, with almost nothing to offer over its predecessor.
Brimming with confidence and overflowing with unlockables, the latest Lego Marvel game is a content-rich, breezily enjoyable placeholder.
If you like the LEGO game formula, you have a preference for playing solo and you're a huge fan of MCU, there's still a lot of value for you in LEGO Marvel's Avengers, even despite a disjointed plot and annoying audio mixes. If you haven't played any of the others and you're thinking about picking up this one, I'd advise starting with just about any other game instead. This the weakest LEGO game I've played thus far, and had me missing games like LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and LEGO Dimensions.
Focusing on the movies rather than the comics has seen Marvel go from inspiring the best Lego game to one of the worst.
Radio messages from Peggy Carter! Slapstick with Thor and Hulk! Lego Marvel's Avengers should be a delightful romp with beloved heroes, but it's a clunky chore.
A step down in terms of star power, but the humor and gameplay are entertaining
Lego Marvel's Avengers is a familiar ride through some well-worn Lego territory, but it's a charming and fun one nonetheless.
Lego Marvel's Avengers is marred by a lack of direction
Great for kids and Marvel fans, but the LEGO video game formula is wearing really thin.
Does your kid constantly go on about Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. while they run around the room in their Hawkeye outfit? Pick up LEGO Marvel's Avengers and add it to the massive pile of LEGO games you likely already have. It's a fun mindless romp through a couple of interesting setpieces, but not a whole lot more than that when it comes down to it.
