Thank you Lego!
I’ve recently been playing two of the biggest comic book franchises this earth has ever known; DC comics’ LEGO Batman 3. Beyond Gotham and Marvel Comic’s LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. I have to say that it has been pretty good effort on both.
First off, if you’re a big fan of Batman, like I am, you will love the fact that you will get to see 150 characters from the DC Universe waiting to be unlocked. The game play is what you would expect from other LEGO Games but the effort they put in to immersing the player in the world of Batman is great. Each Lego game is a world unto itself and this game is no exception. If you’re into co-operative play and puzzles then this is for you. I think kids and adults will get a kick from playing it.
Secondly, Marvel Super Heroes is equally as good. You get to play as the entire cast of Avengers: Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Captain America and other superheroes from Fantastic Four to X-Men. If you love Marvel Comics you will pretty much encounter and unlock all the characters you recognize and love. I think there is nothing more fantastic than seeing Bruce Banner turn into the hulk or flying through the air doing a whirly as Iron Man.
If you’re a fan, or not a fan, play these games and it will enrich your knowledge of DC comics and Marvel Comics, while seeing the lighter side of the two franchises. Thank you LEGO for making these two games.
