Fans of anything Marvel has created in the last 75+ years will come away from LEGO Marvel Super Heroes satisfied, as will those who regularly turn up for and enjoy TT Games' LEGO releases.

[I]f you're a fan of the LEGO series or Marvel Comics, you should probably pick this up. You may be surprised at how much fun it can really be.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is arguably the most ambitious entry in Traveller's Tales' long-running series, and it's an extremely enjoyable one at that. The developer's delivered a title that will appeal to casual players and die-hard Marvel fans alike, which is a laudable achievement. Granted, the game doesn't do much to take advantage of the PS4's supercharged hardware – but when the core action's this fun, we're not even sure that the Hulk would be able to get angry about that.
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
With split-screen co-op, and incredibly gentle expectations as far as the gameplay is concerned, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a fantastic, low-stakes game for parents and kids to play together, but also for adults who are looking for something that pleasantly whiles away the hours without beating you over the head with difficulty. Excelsior!
Lego Marvel Super Heroes has plenty to offer to Lego and Marvel fans alike. A brisk but well-paced story takes you on an enjoyable ride while constantly introducing new characters and locations. Fantastic vocal performances and comedic writing make great use of the Marvel characters from both the movies and the comic books, and it's topped off by an entertaining open world to let players mess around with characters to their heart's content. Some small graphical and control issues remind you that this isn't a modern title, but that said, once you're flying around Manhattan as Iron Man, these flaws are soon forgotten.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes might just be the perfect game to keep kids occupied these holidays, as it's crawling with familiar faces, voices and some downright charm. Just be cautioned however, as several flaws may make you angry. And you wouldn't like this game when you get angry.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes lies at the intersection of comic books, toys, and video games, and slickly combines elements of all into one of 2013's most entertaining PC games.
If you're looking for a fun way to unwind, relax, and have a laugh alone or with some friends, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is exactly the game to fulfill that need. It's pure family-friendly fun that squeezes in just enough variety to ensure that players of all ages will find something to enjoy. A heroic feat, indeed.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes isn't a revolutionary or unique experience. However, it does what it promises to do quite well, and offers quite a bit of quality content for a below average price tag. As such, it's easy to recommend.
I can't wait for the inevitable sequel to see how they top this one.
"Lego Marvel Heroes" is the rare breed of game that is a delight for all ages, which is perfect due to its slant towards co-op play. At the below-average price of $50, it is well worth the money. It's one of the best family friendly games to come out this year, and will be a sure hit for fans of the Marvel series.
The LEGO series sticks to its formula of accessible puzzles, gags and simple gameplay mechanics. While this coherence is overall positive, it's not improving where it should. Nonetheless, the overwhelming presence of the Marvel universe and the amount of unlockable content are well enough for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes to please the fans of both the comic and the game series alike.

Marvel Super Heroes is the latest, possibly greatest, in the revered LEGO games franchise. The Wii U's exclusive benefit of each player having their own screen is a big deal, but this is a fun game regardless of the platform you play it on.
