PS4 gameplay of Lego Marvel

PS4 gameplay of Lego Marvel

As incredible as it might be, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the game that I liked the most from the few hours I got to spent playing the PS4 yesterday. Adding to the usual charm of Traveler's Tales productions, the game adds a new layer of graphics and effects that I couldn't help but enjoy a lot.

You would think that these games would be shoddy productions designed to be quick cash grabs. But from watching my nephews playing them, they surprise me by just how polished and well made games they really are. They also look fantastic visually. Obviously the art style helps a lot, but I really do think they look better than most. The only reason why the graphics whores and console fanboys don't bang on about them is because it's Lego. I think they deserve a bit more credit.

They are very nice looking and have gotten better over the years.

I just wish they were fun to play.

They are writhe with very bad level design, where the puzzles are obscure and don't really fit the target audience. I have yet to play one where my kids didn't need my help and my 3yr old beat Costume Quest on his own *several times*. They always have some horrible camera with jumping. They always have some crappy puzzle that barely makes sense to adults. They always have some moment where my kids say, "is this broken?" and I say, "yes... yes it is," because it's just poorly designed.

Great execution on graphics, presentation, sound (especially now that they're voiced), technology, animation, etc. Just the level design is just dreadful. And I own 6(?) now...

Thanks for these amazingly HQ videos! Any chance of showing some flying around the city? I'm just wondering if pop-in and level of detail are a little better on the ps4? Maybe the game has to be developed for ps4 from the start to really improve that. Thanks!

About the game

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (9 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (10 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (10 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (11 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (11 Hours ago)
