LEGO Marvel's Avengers
Top Critic Average
When it was announced that the next Marvel game was to be based on the MCU, it seemed unlikely it could live up to LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and yet the team has managed to take each aspect of the previous entry and make improvements. This is easily the best LEGO title released so far, and also easily the best Marvel game produced, full stop. It epitomises an element of games that many seem to have forgotten recently: fun. The upcoming Season Pass also brings with it a significant amount of content for a surprisingly low price - a mere £8 for five packs that add new levels and an extra 40 characters.
LEGO Marvel's Avengers' ties to the cinematic universe make it less imaginative than its comic book predecessor, but excellent superhero gameplay makes up for it. This is one of the best LEGO games yet and a must-play for any Marvel fan.
Though TT Games has been delivering licensed Lego video game adventures for over a decade, Lego Marvel's Avengers feels as fun and fresh as it has in years.
Unlike the previous Lego Marvel outing, Marvel's Avengers ties-in with the popular Marvel movies and comes booted, and suited with 8 open-world hubs! But will this be enough to warrant a purchase from even the most loyal of .fans.
But LEGO Marvel's Avengers is a step above its predecessors in its ability puts you in the shoes of the superheroes you love.
Leave it to TT Games to save the day once more with the Marvel license. Lego Marvel's Avengers lives up to the same level of appeal as Super Heroes did years ago, but expands upon it with some fundamental new combat ideas and an overload of content to unlock. Sure, the voice acting may not always fit, and there may be a few visual hiccups here and there, but this crew still saves the day in the end – and that's what counts.
Lego Marvel's Avengers is another great entry in the brick-based franchise, and fans of both series, and in particular Lego Marvel Superheroes, will likely lap it up. It combines a fantastic property, with a pleasing level of narrative variation which of course plays home to the atypical value for money that Lego games are renowned for. However, there are a number of oddities to the way various sections or components of the game have been handled, and the formula remains much the same as it was ten years ago, keeping it from being anywhere near to a revelatory moment for the franchise.
LEGO Marvel's Avengers is what I expected it to be. It combined TT Games' ability to translate a popular film franchise into a fun and family-friendly experience while also adding some new tricks, such as the stud multiplier and combo attacks. And even though I was quite familiar with the source material, I still couldn't help but to pay close attention to its story as it was delivered in such a unique and fun package.
Capitalizing on the incredibly popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, LEGO Marvel's Avengers is what you'd expect in a LEGO game, complete with tons of playable characters and a lot of replay value.
