LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Crisis of Multiple Licenses

/ Jul 30th, 2013 No Comments

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is going to be big, real big, on every level. It will have numerous abilities for each of the many characters; the levels will be extravagant and it will be available on just about every platform. There was actually a lot of doubt on whether this game would get produced since it would involve getting Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO group and Marvel Entertainment co-operating together to create it.

Despite the monumental issue of conflicting companies and licenses holders as a possible road block, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will be coming out on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PC, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, and PlayStation Vita this Holiday Season. The game will also be released on next generation systems: the PS4 and Xbox One once they hit store shelves. It is set to be bigger than any other prior LEGO game developed by TT Games. They have out-done themselves with this installment.

Each character in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has their own unique set of abilities; for example, The Hulk, because he so much bigger than the other LEGO characters, will have his own fight style when compared to someone like Spider-Man. Since Wolverine can never die, when he is killed he walks around as a skeleton. His skin does, however, grow back over time. Every character is voiced. There is a hero character customizer where the player can mix and match the characters and abilities to create their own ultimate hero. The unique character created can be played through the main story line.

There are over a hundred characters in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, including favorite characters like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, The Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Deadpool. Gameplay footage was shown at Marvel Video Games panel during Comic Con 2013, as well as the announcement that Stan Lee will have his own character that will be able to take on other character’s abilities. For example, he can become a Hulk-sized character with a Stan Lee LEGO head or be able to use webs to swing on like Spider-Man.

With the main story line, the side stories, and the ultimate showdown boss fight, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the largest game TT Games has ever created. It takes place in New York, the usual Marvel Universe setting, and gives the player the experience of “saving the world”. The main story line involves the destruction of Silver Surfer’s surfboard. Pieces of the surfboard are all over the world and the player has to find them. To make matters worse, Loki assembles a team of villains (including Venom, Magneto, Sandman, and Abomination) to collect the bricks to build something destructive. In response to this, much as he is wont to do, Nick Fury assembles a team of heroes to stop Loki.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will appeal to LEGO and/or Marvel Universe fans. It is a “drop-in and drop-out” co-op game that is fun and great for casual gamers. Players that enjoy the LEGO adventure-type games, the numerous Marvel characters and abilities, as well as, the usual light-hearted humor from LEGO games will want to get this game.
