An incredibly enjoyable game despite a few flaws,
This review is from: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Nintendo Wii U) (Video Game)
I've been waiting a long time for this game to come out and it has been much more detailed and incredible than I thought it would be. It is absolutely joyous to fly around New York City as Iron Man or Human Torch.
There is two player co-op and one player can play on the gamepad which is a nice option. It works well (as does normal split screen.) The gamepad isn't utilised well if you aren't using it for co-op. It shows a map/character selection but it seems like an afterthought and it isn't very intuitive. It's handier to use the screen.
The only version I've played on another console was the PS3 demo and I would say that the Wii U graphics are better. The characters seem much more "shiny" and sharp looking.
The only downside is that game is quite glitchy. My Wii U has locked up three times early in the game, some parts of levels didn't trigger for me properly, the same goes for a boss battle which needed to be tried a few times for it to trigger the cut-scene and end the level. From what I've read those glitches aren't exclusive to the Wii U and effect all of the console and the PC version. Most games in the Lego series have suffered from pretty much identical issues so it isn't unheard of.
I'm only about 10% into the game itself and it is excellent. A huge open world full of treasures to explore, an amazing roster of characters and a plot that's genuinely funny and interesting.
