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!
