LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the next in the long line of LEGO video games. They have now LEGO-fied both the Marvel and DC universes, the Star Wars universe, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings … and there are probably more on the way! The game play for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes remains relatively unchanged from previous LEGO games: you have to build and break your way through each level toward the end. This game makes great use of the Marvel brand by giving each character different abilities that coincide with their individual powers. Spiderman can swing around and create ropes for other players to climb. Mr. Fantastic can stretch and squeeze his way into secret areas. And Black Widow can turn invisible to sneak past obstacles. Every hero feels pretty unique and fun.
In short, the game is a lot of fun no matter what age you are. With the huge cast of Marvel heroes and villains and the great variety of challenges, you won't be bored at all when you play it. In addition, there are a great number of collectables and goodies to find in each level so it gives you an incentive to go back and play through the game again with all the new characters you have unlocked. The game is best when played with a friend, so if you have a younger sibling or just another friend who is a comic fan, I suggest you pick up this game.
