“Lego Marvel Super Heroes” is an action-adventure videogame that is part of the ongoing Lego saga, and based on the Marvel universe (both the comics and films). It’s a really fun game, intended for children (age 7+) and adults. It follows the gameplay style of the other Lego titles (such as ‘Batman’ and ‘Star Wars’), and is a vibrant, colourful, and humorous videogame.
You can play as one of 180 characters, each with their own unique abilities (e.g. Spiderman can spin webs, while the Hulk can throw and smash large objects). There are several environments to roam around in, such as Lego versions of New York City and Asgard. There are 15 missions in the single-player campaign, as well as 12 side missions. To complete the story will take about 8 to 12 hours (and to collect all pieces and fulfil all the objectives will take about 100 hours) – so there’s plenty of entertainment value with this game.
There are lots of fantastic characters to play as (and to fight against), from Silver Surfer and Doctor Doom to Magneto, Iron Man, and Wolverine. It’s great to experience this crossover Marvel universe, with the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Spiderman, etc.. The ultimate aim is to thwart the attempt of Galactus to conquer the Earth.
This is one of the best Lego videogames available. It has a 2-player cooperation mode (using the same console). It has fantastic graphics, a good story, and great music. If you’ve enjoyed any of the other Lego games then I recommend this one.
There is 'no' collectable Iron Patriot mini figure with this standard edition! I have posted this review on the limited edition version with the figure with the additional figure description.
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 and 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!

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.
This game is suitable for 7 to 70 year olds and a must have for any Lego/Marvel/Superhero fan!
Awesome game with excellent immersion, and high replay value. My 5yo son adores it (though adult assistance is needed for strategy and getting through puzzles), it's an amazing behavioural trainer "Be good, or you lose 5 mins Lego Marvel time!"). Enormous range of playable characters that need to be earned, and an insane number of items for the completionists amongst you. No performance issues encountered regards bugs etc, though on occasion with 2-player, characters can disappear off their own screen and need a grown-up to rescue them! This is without a doubt the best-value console game for younger kids who love superheroes
Marvel Super Heroes is a truly fantastic game and currently the entire family is enjoying working our way through it. It was mostly bought for our son who is under 7 but he is finding the game really easy to control and navigate around. It's great to sit down with him as a newcomer to games consoles and help him work out the problems and puzzles which require solving for you to complete levels and tasks. The look of joy on his face when he completes a level alone is worth the price of the game alone!
