    I mean I love Marvel, I love there movies, and Their Comics and their games, but I feel like the Lego, addage is somehow cheapening the marvel experience, sure its good for a few laughs, but what about the action and the adventures of our favourite Marvel heroes, that have become almost sacred now.

    Well, I for one think it's actually a great experience to play LEGO Marvel Superheroes. I don't see it as a cheapening experience. It's a great way to introduce Marvel to those who haven't yet. Plus, I do like the references they make to both comics and movies of the Marvel brand.

    I disagree. I don't think it cheapens the Marvel experience. It actually introduces new fans to what makes Marvel a great brand. Plus, the gameplay is nicely done. And like what spark_777, the references to the movies and comic books are nice too. I also like the story to the game, where it brings together a plot that will intrigue even the most hardcore of fans.

    I couldn't disagree more. The game is great and is the only game to involve so many forgotten characters of the comics. There's a reason this game has been said to be the best Marvel game to date, it's because it is. Besides all that it has Howard the Duck. 'Nuff Said.

    I really enjoyed the game, well after a few days of my son bugging me to play the game since he had some issues finishing some levels. It's quite addictive and the game does show more characters than what it should.

    I think Lego Super Marvel Heroes did well. My kid is so addicted to it to the point where he wants to play it while eating. Haha. He can't get enough of it. Good thing I have my PS4 to play it while he's playing on Xbox One.

    Agreed man. It's really a great game. I thought it was going to suck but after a few hours, I loved it. Definitely rockin' my world.

    Howard the Duck. Man, I didn't expect he'd be in it. Hahahah. I wonder what kind of power he has. Hahah. I hope it's useful.

    Same here. I really thought that the game would be a let down but I eventually liked it after playing it for 30 minutes. Yes it does show some characters who I don't even know. Cool game.

    I hope they make a sequel for this. It is simply awesome. I'm sure they'll come up with a good plot to go with it. And add more characters!! But the roster is still big.

    For a game this cute I want to see more of it. Yeah, I hope they can come up with a sequel soon. More characters and more action packed adventures on the game. I hope they can add Thanos and Silver Surfer.

    You have to obtain 11 Red Lego Blocks afterwhich you buy him. That's how. But to get those 11 read blocks... you have to do 11 optional missions. But to get those 11 missions, you need to collect a number of golden Lego bricks. There are over 250 Golden Lego Bricks. Yup, lots of work to do to get Deadpool.
