LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Review | GodisaGeek

GodisaGeek: "There’s no denying that TT Games have once again done a well-loved universe justice with Marvel Super Heroes, but the lack of any real challenge and the instant-win feel of every encounter and low-rent puzzle means that there’s little actual play value for gamers over a certain age. The characters are represented with aplomb, and the simple but enjoyable story keeps things ticking along nicely, but it’s hard to escape the feeling that this franchise needs a serious overhaul going into the next generation. There will always be a place for LEGO games as long as there are iconic franchises to re-dress, but it’s time TT took the concept back to the drawing board and shook up the core mechanics.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is proof that both franchises have their place and appeal in the video games industry, but it’s also horribly exposing of the repetitive, tired mechanics employed to actually create a workable gameplay experience. There’s so much easy, cutesy charm and friendly appeal about LEGO Marvel Super Heroes that it’s easy to find yourself bewitched by it, and lose sight of the fact that there’s not really much substance beneath the flashy suit." (3DS, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 7/10
