LEGO Marvel Super Heroes has more than 130 playable characters, such as Wolverine, Spiderman, Iron Man, Deadpool. Their abilities are varied enough that you'll keep wanting to try out new characters. This will keep you completing various missions and collecting tokens around the LEGO city. You'll have unlocked most of them before you know it only to realize how much time has passed already.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes not only uses the most popular Marvel characters, but also some of the lesser-known heroes, such as Moon Knight. It feels nice to finally see them in a video game. Most of the Marvel characters are accurately depicted (albeit in their LEGO forms). This allows you to further immerse yourself into the crossover story on par with the ones found in the comics.

Most of the characters have some way to interact with environment and use it for battle. Superman can lift a car and throw it at his opponent and Batman can attach a bomb and explode it. This gives more variation in attack patterns, keeping you and your opponent guessing. Additionally, you won't always end a fight in the stage where you started. This is because using a power move near the edge of a stage will cause you to transition to another stage. When transitioning you'll see a cut-scene and end up in a new stage. One such area is the Batcave where there's the upper and lower level. You can either throw your opponent down to the lower level or pound them into the elevator and ascend to the upper level.

For the most part this is a slick looking game, but there are times when the animations break immersion. The movements of almost all characters are very stiff and at times they even look like inanimate objects. This is especially noticeable during some of the super abilities such as the Batmobile. The character on the receiving end would just stand there and stiffly turn their head towards it. See More
The game has 30 characters from the DC universe. This includes fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Flash, and Green Lantern. All the characters have decent story arcs, fitting well into the "Superman going rogue" storyline. The character interactions before battles provide additional exposition. It's especially fun hearing Joker mock Batman. Or seeing Lex Luthor meet a different kind of Superman. See More
Traveling across Chronopolis, the world filled with Marvel locations from around the globe, is a great theme park of different levels. With the game's time-travel elements, it's possible to be in the modern New York City metropolis for one level and then Ancient Egypt in the next. The variety helps to keep things fresh across the 11+ hour campaign. See More
Even though the open world design of the levels is limited and simplistic, the game sometimes neglects to give specifics on where to go next. Getting to objectives will then require wandering around the small maps and eventually stumbling upon the next place to go. See More
Friends and family can play LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 together, battling against hordes of enemies in the chaotic two-player co-op mode. The combat is unbalanced, with some characters who are far more powerful than others, but there's still a great time to have with all the madness on each level. Although there's no online play, this is still a great game for those looking for fun games with couch co-op. See More
As the LEGO games are meant for younger audiences, it's great that they're easy to pick up and learn, but LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 doesn't offer anything new to the franchise. The combat is the same button-mashing experience that requires no skill and offers no forms of character progression. See More
With well-written characters who quip and deliver memorable lines, the story is wonderful for anyone interested in a lighter, kid-friendly interpretation of the Marvel universe. Kang the Conqueror is competent without needing to be overtly evil, and heroes such as Spider-Man and Captain America are charming in their heroism and banter with other characters. See More
Over the course of the game, you and your superhero friends will take on various enemies. During fights, both sides are placed on a tactical grid and take turns in moving, attacking, and using special moves such as fireballs, explosions, and even fart bombs that stop time. Some abilities even have button prompts to make the combat slightly more engaging. You also have to consider positioning, weaknesses, combos, and when to use your superpowers, giving the combat a fair amount of depth. As a result, whether you're beating up 6th graders, exterminating crab people, or challenging Morgan Freeman to a duel, the combat is really entertaining. See More
While there are plenty of fart jokes in this game, it primarily focuses on satire. At the forefront you have a parody of superhero movie franchises, which allows you to create your own ridiculous superhero origin story, managing to mix in commentary on modern culture, political correctness, and even our unhealthy obsession with social media. There are quite a few laughs to be had in this world seen through a grade schooler's eyes. See More
Playing South Park: The Fractured but Whole feels like watching an episode of the South Park TV show. It's very colorful, detailed, and interesting to look at, especially because everything seems like a cardboard cutout laid out in 2D view. This includes the environments, the houses, the occasional car that passes you by, and even the many characters. There's also very little in terms of animations with characters having jittery, stop motion-esque movements. All of this gives South Park: The Fractured but Whole a very interesting and enjoyable feel. See More
With the base roster including nearly 30 characters, along with over a dozen additional DLC options, both fans of the superhero genre and newcomers to the universe will find a fighter that they enjoy. Catwoman's acrobatics, the slash of her claws and the crack of her whip are all unique to her, while Poison Ivy throws out clever traps to ensnare her enemies and deal powerful damage to them. From Aquaman to Wonder Woman, there are a ton of characters all with different playstyles to choose from. See More
Injustice 2 includes microtransactions to get around the grind of leveling up characters, as well as options to purchase skins and other items. Microtransactions are harmless when they're limited to cosmetic options; implementing them for progression in a retail-priced game is unnecessary. See More
Each character of the Injustice 2 cast looks true-to-life, giving the impression that the player is controlling a real person instead of only a video game character. The sheen on Batman's armor in the light, every detail of Harley Quinn's menacing, but playful smirk, and the fluid movement of Superman's cape as he fights: these details are all stunningly recreated with photorealistic quality, making the game look like the blockbuster films. See More
With an overly grim plot that builds up to a conclusion with too many unexplained details, it's difficult to get invested in Injustice 2's story. Things are far too dark for the sake of it, with the plot trying too hard to be serious and interesting. Although the story is a more traditional superhero tale than the first Injustice game, there isn't much to praise with the writing. See More
Playing through the Multiverse pits players against enemies on other planets, all with their own challenges to earn various loot to customize your character. Successful completion of these challenges earns you a wide range of powerful gear, in-game credits, and more. There are endless amounts of obtainable loot from the many Multiverse battles, along with limited-time events and exclusive rewards that will entice players to come back for more challenges. See More
For those looking to truly master combat with their favorite Injustice 2 characters, they'll have hours of practice to look forward to with perfecting long strings of combos. The tutorial only gives the bare basics of the game's fighting system, so it's up to you to discover Injustice 2's true potential. Getting the timing down for the 20+ button inputs for certain combos and finishers may sound daunting to some, but this game is great for anyone looking for a challenging fighting game to master.
