Written by Jose Vega

In 2012, a film called The Avengers was released in theaters to widespread critical acclaim. It was the result of several Marvel films that would lead to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes uniting against an other worldly foe. The Marvel Cinematic Universe would form as a result. It sets the stage for future films all while introducing characters old and new for a modern age. Four years later, WB and Tell Tale Games would take the MCU and bring it to a completely different world… Legos. The result is LEGO Marvel’s Avengers. But you probably wish to ask yourself? Does it deliver? The answer is yes. It does in so many ways that it’s worth the price.

Like many LEGO games before, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers takes us through several films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with The Avengers and the sequel, Age of Ultron along with both Captain America films, Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World. It’s a pretty good selection and it lets fans relive some of the films’ many moments and in true LEGO fashion, they provide some very funny bits when it comes to the characters. I had a few moments where I laughed because the humor is very spot-on. It fit the LEGO environment and I liked it. It was great. The voice acting is ripped straight from the many Marvel films. I feel personally that’s one of the game’s faults. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not bad because some parts of the game with the voices actually make it feel like you’re watching the movie. But I wish that many of the people behind the films could maybe re-record their lines so that way it can feel alive. But they did include new lines into this game and I say personally that’s a good thing. In fact, it’s very good, in my humble opinion. I hope that in future LEGO games, they bring in the actors behind the films to provide voice work. It can help provide a better experience.

We move on to the gameplay and like many of the LEGO games, it’s roughly unchanged. That is a good thing because you know the saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Warner Bros. and Tell Tale Games did a superb job doing so keeping the gameplay simple yet fun. All you do is collect studs all while beating up bad guys, solving puzzles with the characters you play with and trying to find any secrets that you’ll encounter such as Mini-Kits, Red Bricks and rescuing Stan Lee. Yes, everyone. Stan Lee is in the game and you’ll be encountering him a lot. Heck he even provides his voice to the game and that’s awesome. I love it. The game spans across 15 levels with the story mode spanning 12. Three of the levels can be accessed within the Space area that serves as a level select. Hub areas can also be chosen and in them, you have the opportunity to explore, complete missions to unlock characters, take part in races, find secrets, etc. There are a lot you can do in the Hub worlds that it can take you hours. Speaking of which, the story mode will take you roughly 7-8 hours with the free play taking a couple more if you want to find all the secrets in each level. Coupled with the hub worlds and their many secrets and you have a game that will take you hours, if not days. LEGO games really want you to put the effort needed and like many of them, they reward you for it. LEGO Marvel’s Avengers also has co-op so you and a friend can team up, take down bad guys and destroy everything around them. It’s a good alternative since if you are playing solo the AI can sometimes be unreliable. But I could be wrong since in some instances, they do provide a good distraction towards your enemies so you can complete objectives. There is also additional content courtesy of the season pass and at $10, it’s very acceptable since they add more characters and missions adding more to the game. I feel that it’s DLC done properly. Kudos to them.

Regardless of this and many other issues, the game is fun. If you enjoyed the previous LEGO games, then you’ll have no problem jumping into this one. It feels familiar but with the addition of an open world sandbox for you to explore makes this game a satisfying experience. I promise you that you will not be disappointed. That is a fact.

I rate this game an 8.5 out of 10. It is a great game that is enjoyable, easy to get into with hours of replayability and a challenge that feels right. Add in an open world sandbox and you have a game that delivers. I recommend this game to anyone that wants to experience the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the eyes of LEGOs.

Final Rating: 8.5

I apologize if it is really late but hey, I’ve been busy. The good news is that I’ve completed the Delta Episode. It’s three videos split into three parts so I hope you enjoy it.

Monday December 1st is when I will do a channel update that will explain a couple of things and set up for tomorrow. I will write a script for it since it’s easier. Hope you enjoy nonetheless.

And if you want to see today’s (or yesterday’s) Smash episode, you can find it here.

Smash Bros. 3DS Last Hurrah Pt. 1

With the Wii U version coming on Friday, I figure why not do a sendoff before the Wii U comes. What you’re going to see is a compilation of Smash replays that will span 3 days. Today will have my friend battles against SLOPlays along with a template test that may probably be used for Smash on the Wii U. Enjoy.

New LP: Bayonetta 2 and 10/23 Uploads

Okay, you guys want to know what happened right? Well here’s the deal.

Before I do however, we begin a BRAND NEW LET’S PLAY! It’s Bayonetta 2. I got the game today and the deal is that I will be recording one episode a day. Why? Because I need a break and I need time to get my mind back in check.

Yeah, yesterday was without a doubt the worst day of my entire life. Long story short, my portable HP 640GB Hard Drive got corrupted and in the process, I’ve lost EVERYTHING including future episodes of Smash Bros. 3DS. The good news is that I still have all the commentaries though I now have to redo five characters. Yes I don’t have a choice but hey it has to be done. But that’ll change since with the recent Smash Wii U direct, I may have no choice but to cancel it.

I know that I can’t satisfy people and all that but if I know that something isn’t doing so well, changes need to be made. I will have a channel update that will detail everything. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the videos I will be doing. And judging by the looks of things, I know people are really happy for Bayonetta 2.

Here are yesterday’s videos if you’re interested.
