TT Games seems content to repeat itself, but then no one’s complaining (and it’s not so different from LEGO itself touching all the franchise bases with its real block sets). LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is thus the esteemed developer doing its ironic comedy-action-adventure shtick in Iron Man and Doctor Doom and Spidey’s wheelhouse.
The story sounds as silly as most Marvel superhero stories these days — the Silver Surfer’s surfboard shatters into a bunch of cosmic blocks, luring all the usual villains — but then if you’re a LEGO-whatever fan, you’ll probably play it for the brick-smashing puzzles, completist collectibles and cute, dorky humor.
What’ll be new in the next-gen versions? Better lighting, more LEGOs knocking around onscreen at once and zero load times.
