It has been years, probably decades since I last had a chance to sit and play with Legos. Lego Marvel Super Heroes gave me the that chance again... well in a digital platform at least. When they first started making the Lego video games, I probably had the same thought most adults would have had, the game is made for kids, why would I want to play it? Whatever the reason, I was wrong.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes obviously takes place in the Marvel Universe. Silver Surfer crash lands on earth and his board is shattered into multiple Lego blocks. The evil villains of the Marvel universe, Loki, Dr. Doom, Magneto, ect... join forces and scoop up the pieces of Silver Surfers board so that they can create the ultimate super weapon.
The actual game play was pretty fun. The controls were fine until you needed to do different race missions in the game, using cars, or flying. It really takes some getting used to in order to be able to complete some of those missions. Here and there I ran into some minor bugs, mostly getting stuck in a wall or something along those line, it only happened three times, but it can make it frustrating especially if you are in a middle of a mission. Other than those things which weren't actually that bad, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a really fun game, especially when you play with other people. I played this game with my wife, and to this day, even after completing the main storyline, we are still playing a lot of the little side missions,
Overall, even with the little bugs, and minor adjusting for controls on vehicles, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a fun game, and definitely work a play. I give it a solid 4 out of 5.
