Last year I returned home from surgery feeling bad. My wife was nice enough to buy me a PS4 and Lego Marvel. Lego Marvel lifted my spirits and is one of the most enjoyable games I have ever played. It is a fantastic mix of open world with a fun comic book style story. I hate open world games, but could not resist some of the fun this game offered. It's great fin for kids and big kids. My son loved it as well. If you love Marvel and need to play something lighthearted, you cannot go wrong with this game. BTW, much like the movies there is something extra after you beat the main story.
Let me start off by saying I have no serious bias against Lego video games. They are the reason I got my first gaming console but this game is clear evidence that this franchise is in a serious downfall.
For example the voices in the game. I don't know about you but I loved the comedic grunts and squeaks of the old games. Though it was fun to hear some voices such as Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) in the game. Over all the terrible voice acting seriously took away from the fun of the mindless violence and humor that is Lego games.
Eventually you can fight your way past the horrible voice acting to the actually game. Which once you got there it is one of the most fun experiences on the new consoles. The attacks were more dynamic. It now allowed for you to throw objects or blast your enemies with rockets and the open hub was just spectacular. They have made it so much better from all the old games. Though it did get tedious at times I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Over all if you are looking for some mindless fun and some cheese laughs get this game.
