They've tackled Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Pirates Of The Caribbean and Batman but developer TT Games is still proving that they've got lots left in them creatively. TT Games latest game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes surpasses it's predecessors on almost every level, blending the spectacular Marvel Universe with LEGO that will delight new-comer's to the character's and games or life-long Marvel fans.

Like the LEGO games that came before, it's all about the extensive character line-up. Unlocking and swapping between them, using each Marvel Heroes unique abilities to solve navigational puzzles that are between you and your goal...while of course, beating up some baddies along the way. TT Games have adapted each Marvel Hero's signature abilities to the LEGO world in a way that made me smile each and every time I experienced playing as a new character. Right from the start, you're given access to some favorites like Iron Man, Hulk, Mr. Fantastic and Spiderman and the fan-service just continues from their.

Thanks to the Boss fights, which are primarily puzzle-based in a sense, as opposed to a button-mashing slug-fest, you'll find plenty of reasons to be swapping between your heroes. Their abilities, for the most part, are put to great use in all sorts of unique and fun ways - even if a few of those uses aren't quite Marvel cannon. To take down Sandman for example -- who is beautifully realized as bits of little LEGO pieces swirling and shifting -- you'll use a combination of Spiderman's web slinging, Ironman's hand canon and Hulk's ability to toss heavy objects to take him down.

There are over 100 unique Marvel characters to unlock through missions, side-quests (Brought to you by Deadpool) and challenges and with each offering something unique, it adds an incredible amount of replay value. You'll pass many areas on your first play-through that you can't access due to not having a hero with the needed ability unlocked and if you're anything like me, you'll want to know what goodies are hidden there...and I'm happy to say, I was rarely disappointed in what I found.

If there's one issue that continues to pop up in the LEGO games, and is indeed still here in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, is that sometimes, there really isn't a clear enough indication on what you'll need to do to pass a certain area. I spent a few times completely lost on what to do next, until I happened to smash a random object that held what I needed. After I few instances of this, I realized that when in doubt on what to do next, just smash everything in sight, the solution will inevitably rear it's head.

The Verdict

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is TT Games strongest effort to date. It's filled with charming, beautifully realized LEGO Marvel characters, buckets of wit and a visual polish that truly does the Marvel Universe justice. There's a seemingly endless amount of character's and secrets to find. Including Stan Lee, who you'll run across from time to time, in need of assistance. If you've played the LEGO games before, you'll find a refined gameplay system that works better than it ever has and if you're coming into the LEGO game series fresh, this is as good a place to start as any. 

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is available now on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and WiiU.

Athena would be the one to bring the young boy into real life as a gift to her daughter. His eyes are dark, dark grey that often are filled with thunder and lightning. His hair is dirty blonde, with a few dyed purple streaks. He often is attacked by mystical monsters, but his true passion is Duel Monsters, his advanced and logical approach earning him many a win. He prefers to have a plethora of options that allow him to always keep his opponent on their toes. He prefers to journey along side his father to tournaments, but he spends a few months each year at Camp Half-Blood to learn more about his grandmother and her family.

Ooh, this would be a girl who kind of has some human traits but she's mostly gem. Stevidot's outfit would be a star tank top and denim shorts. The hair would be brown with green tips and Stevidot would be way more flexible. She would be pretty kind but has a flair for amazing comebacks. Of course. She would have the ability to summon a Metal Spiked Shield to use for both attacks by impaling and defense because it's a shield. Finally, she'd be amazing at technology, gem history, and Earth traditions. Yami from Yu-gi-oh and Annabeth from Percy Jackson ​(Yamibeth)
