The latest Lego game is a typically crammed tribute to Marvel comic lore that buffs the well-worn formula up to a shine.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 doesn't deviate much from the established LEGO template, but its wide variety of settings, heroes, and abilities make it constantly fun to play, especially in co-op. The combat is still quite simple and it's sometimes difficult to tell what you should do next, but the story is lighthearted and fun enough that mild annoyances like these fade into the background.

One of the best Lego games of the entire series, with a dizzying array of bizarre characters and some genuinely compelling gameplay for younger players.

Perhaps that's the issue. Deep within all of this stuff, under layers and layers of outdated game design carried by the Lego brand, is a promising game. The writing and character direction is, by and large, excellent. At its best, the game is a celebration of Marvel, putting together characters from lore deep-dives with big-screen names like Captain America and Star-Lord. At its worst, it is a vague, opaque slog through hundreds of identical enemies and bad level design. Sadly, Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is more “stepping on lego bricks” than “excelsior.”

It's another Lego Marvel game with a so-so story leading to an immensely engaging open-world experience. That's fine if you primarily play Lego games to collect all the things.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 feels like the solid end of TT Games' exploration of the Marvel Universe. There's more characters here and this mashup of worlds provides a good deal of variety. There are problems: the X-Men and Fantastic Four don't return from the first game, the voice cast drains characters of some of their charm, and with this many characters, things can get a little confusing. The Lego game formula might need a rebuild in the future, but Lego Marvel 2 is good victory lap for the series.

The latest marriage of LEGO and Marvel is a mixed but promising step-up. Its star-studded story, inventive hub-world and new presentation style all add much-needed freshness to a stale format. However, technical issues, clumsy controls and overwhelming déjà vu remain. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 still has the power to entertain, but while the game's chronological theme has allowed the brand to stride confidently into the future, its core mechanics remain rooted firmly in the past.

Traveller's Tales comes back with the Marvel Universe to deliver one of the most solid games of the series, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. A continuist game in terms of gameplay, but charismatic and entertaining.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a fantastic Lego game. A fun narrative, a list of well-known characters a mile long, and further refinement on the series' classic gameplay mark this out as the best Lego game yet. Admittedly, it's still another game in a well-trodden franchise, and one which doesn't reinvent the (plastic) wheel, but few brands can claim the consistent quality on show here.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a game made for fans of Marvel and of their latest films and tv shows. It has a good and funy history, but it's repetitive game and doesn't innovate. The LEGO formula needs to be renewed urgently.

If you enjoyed the first Lego Marvel Super Heroes, there's no doubt you'll love this one too. If you're looking for a sandbox where you can play with just about any of your favorite Marvel characters you'd like, this is your stop. If you're looking for a challenge, look elsewhere.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 changes a bit the original LEGO Games' formula with more action than we used to play, but even with that this games acomplishes almost all its goals. Fun, long and a great homage to Marvel's comic book era.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 has good graphics and a lot of Marvel characters to unlock, but it's also a too slowly paced game with some issues in its level design.

It's a lot of fun, and you're never stuck for something to do. It's also the perfect game to play with your friends and family, and the sheer amount of characters means there's someone for everyone.

While it's true that a LEGO game will never surprise anybody, the individual games can still be tons of fun – especially when you like the property involved. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a blast for Marvel fans, with hundreds of characters great and small, 20 huge levels with full co-op support, and a vast and beautiful open world to explore. True believers will get more than their money's worth from this one.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a pure dose of fan service to Marvel enthusiasts, with its long list of characters, recognizable locations and its nods to storylines and in-jokes, but I feel that these games have lost their way over time. It isn't to say that I didn't enjoy my time with it, but I certainly won't be going back to it time and again, trying to achieve that 100% completion stat.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 has a faded and boring story, a huge amount of unnecessary and uninteresting characters, a lot of monotonous levels, bad camera, stupid companions and a broken cooperative mode. At the moment, this is the worst game in the superhero universe. And you just better skip it to avoid negative emotions.
