LEGO Marvel Super Heroes scales new heights of production polish. From the animated story sequences to the explosive action itself, the creators have melded the worlds of LEGO and Marvel superbly. Environments are huge and richly detailed, replicating real New York City landmarks and letting you do battle in some of Marvel's best-loved locations - including the X-Men mansion.
The characters' super powers are also wonderfully captured, and it's amazing how distinctive the heroes are to play - the musclebound Thing, for example, feels very different from the nimble Daredevil.
With an exhilarating soundtrack and showers of spectacular sound effects and visual effects, the game boasts a Hollywood action movie style approach. The dialogue between characters is great too, with all the winning charm of a classic Stan Lee comic book. Everything is sharp, shiny and fantastically fluid - yet for all the cute, quirky touches, the game still packs a serious punch.
