Pro Great storyline
The game weaves a story that combines many franchises, and surprisingly does it very well. It is on par with any crossover saga found in the comics themselves.
Pro Huge selection of playable characters
Each character in the game can be used during play, and what makes this great is that there is such a large selection of characters. The Fantastic Four, X-Men, Spiderman and Avengers franchise heroes and villains can be found and played in the game. A big part of the gameplay is unlocking these heroes and villains while you play, which should last hours and hours just on its own.
Pro Good controller support
Just plug in a controller and play. For those that would like to customize the controls, their are options in the settings.
Pro All Lego games on steam have local coop
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes for PC supports local co-op of 2 players at the same time.
Con Simplistic repetitive gameplay
Nearly every Lego game plays the same way, which can grow tedious after extended playtime.
Con Switching characters can be confusing
Some characters have a transformation that they can take advantage of, but there is a problem that these transformations also use the same button that switches characters. This can become cumbersome during hectic fights, as you may be trying to switch a character when the game forces a transformation instead. not only does this interrupt the flow of the gameplay, but it can wind up punishing the player due to imprecise controls.
