If you are interested in Lego titles and superhero titles, and if you have the one with you to experience the game, Marvel's Avengers can be an exciting experience. Otherwise, the game will quickly get tedious and maybe you will not even be able to finish the main story. The potential of the game is much higher than what was presented by TT, and the relative decline in Lego titles in recent years suggests a need for a major overhaul of the series. But in general, the pleasure of turning the Thor hammer, knocking with the Captain America's shield, and summoning Hulk Buster over Stark Tower can not be found in any title, so do not miss the LEGO Marvel's Avengers.
This game is based off the Avengers movies and there's no original story this time around like in Super Heroes. Avengers wasn't as good as Lego Marvel Super Heroes, but it's still worth playing anyway. There's a ton of content to unlock and the replay value is high, like in all Lego games, until you get 100%, at which point you won't play as much anymore. You still get an open world to explore filled with secrets, collectibles, and side quests, but it felt overall like more of an expansion pack to Super Heroes than a whole new game. It was also missing Spider Man and many other characters, some of which got added in as DLC later on. There's a decent amount of levels in the game, but Free Play mode is where you will invest the vast majority of your time. You will primarily spend your time in NYC again, though it looks very different from the previous game, but you will also explore like a half dozen smaller hubs like Hawkeye's farm, and a ship port/beach. None of them are as interesting and obviously have less content and collectibles. I would recommend Super Heroes over Avengers, but if you love Marvel or Lego games in general, you'll have fun with both games.
Lego : Marvel Avengers is your typical Lego game. You control several characters and must explore a lot of levels, finding new Lego pieces in the process. Each character has his own abilities that can be used to explore the levels further. Marvel Avengers is like a bigger version of Lego : Marvel Super-Heroes. There are even some "open-world maps" that are pretty neat to explore. As usual, there are a ton of characters to play (Heroes AND Vilains are available!) which is pretty cool. It's a cool action-adventure game with cute visuals and fun exploration. But don't expect too much from it. One might think that the Lego formula is starting to get old.
