A master pice of games.

Like Lego Batman 2 DC superheores the game has heroes uniting and have great battles bosses. Even though the flying isn'the best and the driving could use some work. But it is a fun game no just for kids but Adults will have fun playing this game.

Our review:
Parents say (12 ):
Kids say (51 ):

The men and women who made LEGO Marvel Super Heroes clearly know their comic-book lore. The heroes in this game feel just right. Whether it's Spider-Man joking about having to do homework or the suggestion of special moments between Hawkeye and Black Widow, the game happily panders to Marvel Universe fans. It can be seen in the action as well. Mr. Fantastic can do all sorts of cool, crazy things with his shape-shifting body -- like stretching flat into a parachute and bending in unexpected ways in combat -- while Iron Man's powers change dramatically based on which armor Tony Stark is wearing.

The only part of the experience that dips below excellent is the open sandbox world. The controls for vehicles and movement in general just don't feel quite right, and finding your way around seems harder than necessary. But even if kids skip the open-world stuff altogether, they're still left with potentially dozens of hours in the campaign missions, which, as usual, lure players to return as new characters in free play mode to unlock more stuff. Young or old, fans of brick building and superheroes will have a great time with TT Games' latest Lego game.
