Lego Marvel Super Heroes is the best Lego game I've played. It takes everything that people love about the series (collectables, loads of characters, humor, etc.) and mashes it together with an interesting IP. It seems clear that TT took some ideas from Lego City on Wii U and incorporated them in Marvel such as an "open hub world" which has a lot of things to do. For all the positives, this is a Lego game. There are still legacy issues with this game including the wonky jumping, occasional glitches, and slow pacing that can be irritating. The 6/10 score is based on the fact that not much has changed here, but it still manages to be the best Lego game.

Game was actually pretty good until my save file just completely disappeared. Heard of others having the same issue. Glitches like this are unacceptable. Got frustrated with it and returned it. A shame too bc it was actually kind of fun. Oh well. Renters and buyers beware!
This game is extremely enjoyable and fun to play. Like others have mentioned the save issue it was makes me give this game a poor rating. Having the game not properly save your progress after putting hours of gameplay really frustrated me. If the game saved properly this game would be a solid 8 out of 10.
Im sorry, but this is a kiddy game. there is nothing wrong with adults playing this game but I was bored with it after playing through the first 3 levels. I have played through 2 of the Lego Star Wars games so I don't have anything against Lego games but this Marvel one just seemed it had been more geared towards a younger audience. As a parent, this is the type of game you would want your kid playing. The violence is comical, the story is cheesy, and its a bunch of button mashing. Even with not many choices of games to play on the Xbox One, older gamers should pass on this one.
Game is great if you've enjoyed other Lego games but there is a severe save game issue where you may wind up having to replay several levels (2-3 hours of game play) over again. I chose to send the game back.

I really enjoyed the first 5-6 hours I put into the first 5 levels, until I powered the game off and came back a couple hours later to play again. Upon powering it back up to my horror I discovered it hadn't saved any of my game even though I had been awarded with achievements. I figured it was a fluke and played for another 30 minutes, saved and turned it off again. Powered it back up and the same issue occurred again. From what I read online most people assume it has to do with the kinect auto sign in. I personally will not be playing it again. I really enjoyed what I did play, but it is ridiculous that bug hasn't been patched considering how long this game has been out. Overall what i played of the game was very fun, and even starting over wasn't unbearable mainly because the game isn't too challenging especially once you know how to solve the puzzles.
