I mentioned before that my three boys were given a metric ton of PS3 games for Christmas. One of the games, which I will review here, is Lego’s Marvel Super Heroes. Anyone with young children that like to play video games will be familiar with the Lego video games. My kids absolutely love them; they seem to have most, if not all, of them. If you are unfamiliar with the Lego games I recommend you check them out, I have provided a link to Lego’s video game section on their website below.
Lego’s Marvel Super Heroes allows us to play iconic characters from the Marvel universe, including Iron Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Spiderman, Thor, Captain America, and many others. We guide our heroes through exciting adventures, fighting villains and saving people. You can play the game solo or with a friend. As with all Lego games, as you progress through the game, you can unlock additional characters and extra features.
I asked my kids for their opinion about the game, here is what they said:
Logan (8): “It’s fun and there are mansions in it. You can drive cars, fly planes, and drive boats.”
Joshua (10): “It’s fun. I like their abilities. I like that you can change from Hulk back to Bruce Banner. I like that it has a lot of the Marvel super heroes.”
Aaron (11, 12 in less than a month): “I do like it, but it’s not my kind of video game. I feel like it’s more for younger kids and not really for me.”
Admittedly, Aaron has played this game the least. He said he feels like all the Lego games are for little kids, so his opinion is not specific to this game. He is at an age that he wants to play the “big boy” games and not the “little kid” games.
So all in all, if you or someone you know likes the other Lego video games, this one should be on the play list. I have played several of the Lego video games, this one included, with the kids and I think they are a blast to play.
