Star Wars, Harry potter, Indiana Jones, When Batman All legoized by the UK-based Traveller’s Tales, it has been the champion of the IP crossover scene for some time.

But at the end of this heyday of 2013, the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes are secretly the best of all — and now on the Switch. There is a clear difference between games made with much research and games made with real love, and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the latter. This game is obvious because there are so many camera references, jokes and winks. Love labor by super fans.

But you don’t necessary Becoming a super fan to enjoy the game — and thank you for its goodness. Because catching up with Marvel Bath these days is like trying to memorize Wikipedia. The well-known Lego gameplay of “shatter everything until you know what to do next” is still here. The difference is that every character now has psychic powers, making breaking things endlessly fun and diverse.

The character is a glowing arc reactor at the heart of the superhero.Marvel’s roster has been on countless cartoons, movies, and even for over 60 years Music spin-off.. There are more than 150 brighters to unlock, and there are several outfits, including different Iron Man suits and different Spider-Man outfits / identities. The more famous characters unlock throughout the story, but with more characters scattered throughout New York City, you’ll have to complete the puzzle to win the team.

They are all superheroes and villains, so it’s not surprising that they are all very Overwhelming, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes does a great job of making you feel powerful rather than bored. The actual mission itself is limited to preselected groups. These characters go through missions, but they don’t have all the power needed to uncover all the secrets inside. You need to go back to free play. For that, there are more superhero weapons to choose from.

However, the plot can feel like a tutorial on painting with numbers, where you will be penalized if you try to skip first. Lego games require you to play all levels, so missions are cluttered with things that aren’t available yet. You will see many pop-ups about the need for “magnetic force” and “web sling characters”. It can be frustrating to know. Exactly What you need to do, but you are not free approved.. Moreover, as a result, the mission becomes visually cluttered. So, especially in handheld mode, everything looks a bit muddy on the switch.

Missions usually take place in confined locations such as prisons, secret hideouts, and Stark Tower, but free play allows you to roam the entire city of New York.

But if you’ve played Lego games, these are all known amounts. All of these tend to be drawn from a pool of the same ideas and mechanisms that have proven successful in the past. LEGO Marvel Superheroes stand out for their affectionate fan service, and the game is packed with references to Marvel’s rich folklore. But it’s not like being cornered by an unpleasant nerd at a comic bookstore. It’s like a good companion joking while watching the latest Avengers movie. You can also hit things until you get the money. What should I not love?

It’s a shame that the linear plot forces you to follow its restrictive rules to enjoy stringless freeplay, but writing is enough to take you. Whether you’re a Marvel super fan or just watching a Thor movie because you’re in love with Chris Hemsworth, the LEGO Marvel Superheroes cheeked you with lots of smash. Provide joy.
