Good but sub par for the series

Clearly a lot of love went into making the characters, each one is perfectly detailed and most even have unique movesets and multiple abilities, this aspect is definitely a step up from the other Lego games. However, the game itself just isn't nearly as well designed as the other entries in the series (particularly Lego Batman 2), level design can be frustratingly unclear at times and limits you to too few main characters, you can get characters stuck in places they weren't supposed to access, the world Hub is plain and can be annoying to navigate, and it can be frustrating to try to figure out very basic features like unlocking/buying new characters or just trying to return to the helicarrier.

My biggest problem is that this entry is that it just isn't funny, all previous entries had a great sense of humor and often hilarious gags. Marvel Superheroes contains jokes in the very loosest sense of the word, throws a dozen at you per cutscene, and almost all of them fall extremely flat. I just sit wondering, "did someone serious think that would be funny?"

Overall it's a game that is fun enough to play for the characters but doesn't live up to normal Lego game standards.

Emphasizes on fun. I liked the story a lot, even though it took me just a day and a half to finish it. Collecting characters and cars to play with was fun. The voices were awesome, even though random people would constantly wine about a taxi and that was annoying. The game has a lot of bugs in, like crashes, half the city disappearing for like a minute, not being able to transform a character into a big fig, not being able to select a big fig at all. The controls on ground were not the best but acceptable, controls in the air, slightly less fortunate than on ground. But here is the problem, after you collect all of the vehicles, and characters and done MOST of the races there isn't much to do. I said most races because the sky races added with the "not-so-good" flight controls, it will feel like a waste of time and will get you thinking that "I don't need 100% percent completion". Some of the characters are boring along with some of the vehicles that are in your inventory. After you complete everything that won't make you rage, you'll be left staring at the screen thinking of a way to entertain yourself in the game. I believe that Tt held back a lot of stuff from thus game. It has a lot of potential, but Tt wasn't comfortable enough, to use it all. Like an arena to just fight enemies to have fun with characters. It's not true that every character has there own ability, they all either have what is already taken or a multiple of abilities.The graphics are beautiful, but with that added there isn't a lot of replay value.
