Not a fan, annoyances abound.
on November 23, 2015
I've never been much of a fan of the Super Hero Squad TV show, though my kids do like it. I find it pretty annoying. I don't like how the dumb down the characters and how every joke is just someone saying a line in a silly voice. Perhaps I have a higher opinion of kids' intelligence than the shows creators.
That said, the game is more of the same, but with a lot of poorly-crafted annoyances. For example, when you're playing in story mode, you can't skip the little cutscenes that take place throughout the levels. In an early one, before you fight Hercules, who is a boss, there's a 60-second cutscene that plays every time. I was playing with my four-year-old son, who obviously isn't great at games yet, and we had to redo it a few times before we defeated Herc. We had to watch that whole cutscene at least four times. It was incredible annoying, especially since the dialogue is pretty dumb as well.
Overall, the game is okay, but it's not comparison to the Lego Marvel Superheroes game, or even the Lego Batman ones. At least in those games the dialogue is written for people with functioning brains.
