My Wife and I have played most of the Lego games and thought that Marvel was the best one yet (by far). This game is nearly as good - Marvel was so much fun because of the superheroes you get to play, like Hulk and Iron Man, so it still has a slight edge in terms of sheer fun. This game is graphically equivalent and playability is excellent. I do recommend seeing the movie since it relies heavily on actual from-the-movie cut-scenes that contain spoilers to most of the movie. Definitely a great game to have on your Xbox One if you've liked past Lego games.
One thing, compared to the other recent release, this is MUCH shorter and has fewer things to do. Only about 40% of the content of the last several games. Makes this a good game for RENT and not to buy!!
To sum things up, Unfortunately it seems to be based on the more basic LEGO video game engine, not the one used by LEGO Marvel Superheroes, but nonetheless it's a great game. I wish it had more levels for Story play, and more characters, but they didn't have too much material to work with.
Or at least it seems that way to me. I played it with my son over a weekend and achieved 75% completion. If you're looking for a lego game with more content, I would suggest Lego Marvel or even better, Lego Hobbit. This game still followed the same theme of other games in terms of what to do and how to do it. It was satisfying, but not amazing.
