LEGO® computer games, as it stands, are games of great quality, interesting and involving story, fun and intuitive gameplay and characters that have that special charm to them. And, most importantly – all of that is made out of LEGO blocks! They’ve managed to make story involving said LEGO characters look profound and immersive, brimming with lighthearted humor and self-parody. Will that newcomer be up to the challenge of upholding that staple? Let’s find out!
What we have here in the terms of gameplay is pretty standard LEGO action game: we have a bunch of unlockable Marvel characters with special powers, open world with some areas that can only be accessible through usage of said special powers, acting like a hub for our characters, different story levels and lots and lots of secrets, Easter eggs and unlockables. And destructible LEGO blocks, of course. Literally metric tons of them, as most of the scenery could be crushed, blown up, annihilated and dematerialized. For mon…, I mean, for the Justice!
As you unlock more characters and progress further through the story, more and more areas could be opened, either through new powers or story progression, you are getting chance to try out new challenges and activities. Or you can just destroy everything and everyone, maniacally laughing all the time. You know, whatever rocks your boat.
