I’ve been a huge fan of the Lego franchise for years, having played my way through the Star Wars Titles, then Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and of course the two DC Batman ones. So when I heard that Marvel was getting the Lego treatment I just couldn’t wait to get my hand on it. I mean, Spidy, fantastic four and the avengers all to have fun with, but wait, not just that, they vamped it up with the huge Marvel guys, yep, that’s right, Hulk, Abomination, The Thing, there’s no way I could pass that up.
So what do you get?
Well lets be honest here, you get a huge amount of characters to play with, you have a great plotline, hugely destructible objects, side missions as well as hidden items to find alongside puzzles to figure out. It has also got great replay options with things to discover with free-play and of course it has to get props just for putting Lego Rapters in it. Yeah, that’s right, Lego dino’s.
All round, I’ve had a huge amount of fun with this game,, played through the various missions multiple times and spent a lot of time looking at the beautiful backgrounds and loving the script that has made the Lego games iconic. Great fun all round and something that my nephews as well as my twin are going to have a blast with this Christmas.
