Fantastic Lego/Marvel game. . .,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lego Marvel Super Heroes Video Game Pack Playset Edition (Video Game)
This review is for the Limited edition version that comes with the Iron Patriot mini figure. I have posted this review minus the figure description on the standard edition.
I've bought this Marvel Superheroes game for my Marvel Superhero mad cannot live without his Xbox son! Or was it really for. . . .me? :)
We must have nearly all the lego franchise games that have been brought out on the Xbox. The first was probably Bionicle and they've came a long way on since then. Lego Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones, Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter amongst our favourites in the past. Batman 2 DC Superheroes probably the best!
This Marvel Superheroes game easily beats the lot by a long shot in my opinion.
The story in this game is that the Silver Surfer comes to earth to herald the arrival of Galactus, chased by Iron Man and attacked by Doctor Doom his surfboard is destroyed and breaks up into cosmic bricks that are spread worldwide. Loki and Doctor Doom assemble a team of villains to collect the bricks for devious purposes of course!
Nick Fury calls upon The Avengers and various other Marvel Superheros to try to stop Loki and Doctor Doom. . . .
The game play is brilliant as ever. Great comical dialogue from the characters with some great in-jokes, brilliant movie quality cut scenes, tons of side games alongside the main story game mostly set in a spot on Lego version of New York/Manhattan in which you will find all the well known landmarks such as Grand Central Station, The Empire Estate Building, Central Park as well as the well loved Marvel landmarks of The Daily Bugle, The Baxter Building, Oscorp, Stark Tower and more! I'll let you find them yourselves!
You'll come across over 150 characters during this game be able to be many and will have their abilities in gameplay including The Hulk who is bigger than the others and obviously much stronger and has other abilities I won't give away here! Deadpool with his katana and guns, Blade, Captain America, Ant Man, Mr Fantastic and Thor to name but a few and I mean a few!
Here's a list of most of the characters of which loads are playable!
Beta Ray Bill
Damage Control Worker
Drax the Destroyer
Howard the Duck
J. Jonah Jameson
Kraven the Hunter
Malekith the accursed
Mary Jane Watson
Ronan the Accuser
Statue of Liberty
Bit geeky I know :)
There's character villains and heroes alike there from Avengers, The Fantastic 4, Spiderman, X men and other comic books. There's quite few vehicles involved too along the way which you will recognise and tons of cool weapons and special powers to use!
I could go on and on but I won't. If you are familiar with Lego games then you know what to expect here. Great fun, great game play, loads of side games, great graphics, great cut scenes and brilliant dialogue from the characters with loads of jokes thrown in.
The Iron Patriot Mini figure comes with this game.
The Iron Patriot features the same helmet as War Machine in blue with a silver visor with red on top. The head is also the same. The shoulder gun is black and hands are dark red with a dark blue body. The Arc Reactor on the chest has a star design around it.
A nice little Lego figure for the collectors.
This game is suitable for 7 to 70 year olds and a must have for any Lego/Marvel/Superhero fan!
