LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is now available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and will later be available on the Nintendo Switch.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 takes us back to the Marvel universe but this time with a whole lot of new heroes. Kang the Conqueror has decided to use time against the heroes to take over the universe. By melding multiple worlds together with a whole host of other super villains also wait to take you down. The story was really good, a true Marvel story told in LEGO form, it is engaging, full of comedy and is generally just a joy to experience. I had no issues with the story at all. Even with the large roster of characters all of them have interesting and unique quirks, you can tell they really have worked on each character with love. The length of the story is fairly long but each level features different activities to take on and it blends them all really well.
The gameplay sticks to the classic LEGO game formula we all know and love but adds a few more fun features to give players something different from others. The time manipulation ability is absolutely fantastic as is the new 4 player battle arena. Another feature is the number of bosses you’ll take on in each level, at first it was slightly difficult and I didn’t know if I liked it but as you go on the boss battles are actually really fun, they all have unique powers and unique ways to kill you, once you work the enemy out its good fun to try and take them down. As mentioned before each character is different and has really fun abilities, my personal favourite has to be Starlords cassette tape player, especially when shooting, dancing and listening to Mr Blue Sky. You can tell the team had fun with that. There are so many characters to unlock and experiment with and a new custom character designer which is really deep due to what you can create and how many options it gives you. Once finished with the story you can take on tasks in the massive hub area which consists of many different sections of the Marvel Universe put into one place. It really is fantastic seeing these Universes stuck together, my favourite is the wild west, especially when you see a taxi pass through from New York. There is so much content to keep you busy with this title.
The graphics team have really put there heart and soul into the design of the game to make it both as close to LEGO and Marvel as possible. Each world looks different and is full of Marvel comic references which is a joy to see. The soundtrack also provides an excellent score to defeat enemies too. The voice acting is also on point with a lot of humour involved.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 feels like one of the best LEGO games released in a few years, there is so much to do and see, so many characters polished and crafted with love. It’s a game absolutely full of things to do for kids and adults alike. I hope to see more titles like this soon. Though TT Games what we really want is a LEGO Back to the Future trilogy game… asking for a friend…
