We grabbed one of our most anticipated games of the year today: Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Combining all of the good things Lego has been learning and building in their other games, with the wealth of characters with diverse abilities that Marvel brings to the table, this game is well suited for success.
And I have to say, I’m impressed. Even with anticipating it, there are things we are doing in the game that are just so much fun. And though at first talking was not a part of the Lego games, and was a bit of a jarring experience – they are now using speech to great effect.
So let me give you a few highlights of the game, in case you’re on the fence about it! And if you’re already playing it too, let us know what you think in the comments below!
