I know this game has been out for 2+ years so far, but as the game is quite interesting, I feel I must write few words about it.
Local Co-OP Game
While searching for the best games to play with my kids on a one screen, only recently I’ve discovered Lego Marvel Superheroes. And since the game and it’s game style are so amusing, kids and I are already playing Lego Marvel Superheroes 2!
If you haven’t played the first one, let me explain what the game is all about.
Action involves lightweight combat with all sorts of superheroes characters to solve environmental puzzles. It can be played as a single player, or you can co-op with someone using gamepads and/or controllers.
It is constantly entertaining thanks to the endless puns from Spiderman or Mrs Marvel…
They have made improvements since the first game in gameplay like showing which character should do something, instead of just trying all of them like it was the case in the Lego 1. Also, the story is exponentially larger and there are tons of subplots you can dive in and mysteries to solve.
New Lego Adventures
All of this means, setting to the campaign changes drastically and often – creating unique scenarios. One moment you’ll be fighting knights on the streets of evil England – the next you’ll me infiltrating the bases in the black panther’s homeland. These sequences are always a treat, especially because they’re doing a good job of breaking up the increase in predictability of a lego gameplay which still shows here in an abundance. Adding further variety and some new time travel mechanics.
The best things about this game is that it is packed with heroes and villains from both familiar and most obscure corners of the marvel universe. Each character comes with special skills for combat and puzzles and the length that it goes to make each stand-out are sometimes astonishing.
Lego marvel superheroes 2 doesn’t deviate much from the established templates but its wide variety of setting, heroes and abilities make it constantly fun to play. The combat is still quite simple and the only real problem is to find out what you are supposed to do next in all the chaos but its all usually so fun that these mild annoyances fade into the background.
