Discover LEGO New York like never before, and travel to iconic locations from the Marvel Universe such as the X Mansion, Asteroid M and Asgard.

This game has all the fun, easy play of other Lego games, but the Free Play mode is what really sets this one apart. The city of New York is your playground as you race cars/motorcycles/helicopters or complete little mini-missions. My sons have spent hours in this mode - so even after you have "finished" the game, there is still so much more to be done. Very few games provide this much re-playability. Excellent purchase. In contrast to the Lego Movie game which my kids were done with in a week and has almost no Free Play interest to keep them going back for more. We are eager to try other Lego games, but right now, we are still happily trying to get the last few elusive Gold Bricks in the Marvel one.
My son loves this game! To quote him, "It's the best game in the world." First of all, it wasn't as expensive as so many of these video games are these days. You can roam New York City with these characters - and they all speak English which, according to him, is an important detail. While they're roaming the city, the heroes fly, throw flames, skydive, throw fireballs, get a bunch of money, defeat vicious enemies, etc. It's everything you would expect and more from Lego!
I got this for my husband and I to play together. I'm about as far from a gamer as possible but wanted to try to play with him since it's a favorite hobby. We both had a good time playing this game. The characters are fun and the game play is forgiving for the newbie and easy to navigate. The more experience gamer will find there are challenging pieces that keep your mind engaged.
If you have played any of the other Lego games before then you should fully know what to expect from this game. If not, Lego games take a very humorous, and very PG, look at whatever property they are featuring. The game play is generally very simple in nature, easy for new players of either Lego games or video games in general to jump into. You will use in game Lego building to help you on your way through the story (which is fairly straight forward but I'll leave that to you to discover) and switch in between a variety of modes of transport such as being on foot, flying, etc. to get around. This is a game (along with all the other Lego games) that is very accessible for any type of gamer out there. I've been playing for over 20 years and personally find these quite amusing. One thing to look out for though is that the controls for the flying, racing, and such seem rather sloppy and I had a bit of difficulty adapting to them.
Game is great and my boys love it. I even enjoyed playing as a parent. However there are a number of saving issues and we have lost our game. I’ve read numerous blogs with the seems to be a continued issue I found a few ways to help the safe stay longer but it’s annoying. That’s why I only gave it three stars because the game is great but with all the technology that’s out there I can’t understand why there would be any saving issues and you did your game
My boys like the game and seem entertained enough by it plus get to learn about the Marvel characters I grew up with. They can play together as a team to complete their quests and when they get bored they can attack one another for some added fun lol. Now that I have seen them playing, it is a really neat story line where various Marvel characters come in and out of the different scenarios plus it is not overly violent with characters just breaking into Lego pieces when they are killed.
Loved the game. Played it all the way through with my 6 year old. Fun and easy enough for a child but also keeps an adult entertained. Unlock more and more characters as you progress in the game. If you grew up with Marvel Comics as part of your childhood, this is a great way to introduce your child to all the major characters of the Marvel Universe you grew up loving, even many obscure ones--Moon Knight, Silver Samurai, Black Bolt, etc...
I wanted a game I could play with my Girlfriend in the living room without two separate Xbox consoles. This game is great on many levels. I'm a huge Marvel Comics fan and the game covers their powers pretty well. It also gives you some really inventive ways to use teamwork. Each character has a job to do and only that character can do it. For example: Iron Man has to blow up some objects and only Hulk can lift them. It makes each character valuable in their own way and inspires some great teamwork.
Game arrived before estimated delivery time and in perfect condition.
The first Lego game to provide an open world for players to explore across a surprisingly large scale map of Manhattan as your favourite comic book and movie superheroes from the marvel franchise. A wide variety in selection of characters and vehicles with plenty to do and a decent, creative and original storyline, linking all marvel characters together who have never been combined before, such as Wolverine and Spider man, or Iron Man and the Human Torch. A gem of a game.
I got this game pure out of curiosity, and to see if the LEGO games were still as fantastic; and this game fulfilled my expectations within the first two hours of gaming. I'm 15 years old and I've loved the LEGO games throughout my childhood. This game is by far one of the best ever made, and possibly the best (tied in with LEGO Star Wars: Complete Saga in my opinion). I've already played this game for 25 hours and I haven't even completed the story yet. There is so much to do on it and it never gets boring. It also adds a comedic aspect to it; for instance Deadpool is hilarious and by far my favourite character on the game. Would defiantly recommened it to anyone, no matter what age.
Iron man, Hulk, Captain America and more get the Lego treatment. Collect studs, complete missions and choose who will be your superhero. Good quality fun game suitable for everyone in the family.
My five year old son and I play this. He loves it! I must admit as a big kid I love it too. We paid sub £20 which is amazing value for the amount of gameplay we have had. For him he can bash the buttons and enjoys playing as all his different super heroes (hulk, captian America, Thor, Spider-Man the list goes on).
This is an awesome game that is not just for kids. Quite possibly the best marvel superhero video game. Don't let it being LEGO sway you from buying it. Start playing and you will soon forget about how the characters look like LEGO. We have it on ps3 and XBOX ONE!
I bought this for my 3 year old son and he loves it. It's a little difficult for a little one but with help they can still enjoy it.
Took my 8 year olds about 20 minutes to get the hang of it but they've not stopped playing it. Once the challenges are done the free-play mode is great fun.
Purchased for 5 year old son, who loves it. Typical lego game, so if you've played any of the other Lego games based on movies, you will know what to expect. It's easy enough for young ones to play and understand, but all ages can enjoy it. The visuals are full of charm and humour and the level design is very clever. Lots of content as well, so very good value for money.
This is a typical Lego game. It's fun and challenging and will provide good entertainment. It throws you in right at the deep end and the graphics are very good. Gameplay is smooth and fluid. If you are a Lego fan then it's a good addition to the family.
Bought for Christmas for my 5 year old grandson, his review .... its fab,he gets to be hulk,to throw things and fight the bad guys what more could you want
