However the open world is amazing, especially given how the storyline and open world actually influence each other in ways not normally seen in these kinds of games. Also now when selecting characters in open play you can see the abilities they have, and if you need a specific ability at that moment, at least one character with it will start to pluse. So switching characters while making sure you have the abilities you want has never been easier. And they added a few "just for fun" abilities like photo mode. And the character customization has never had as many options included generic parts you can color yourself so your not dependent on existing parts so your characters dont look like knock offs of ones in the game for the first time ever, which is AWESOME.
Admittedly the story drags a bit in places, especially chapter 2, but once it picks up its pretty fun.
However, then we get open world mini games and challenges. Without fail these are HORRID TERRIBLE EXPERIENCES. And its all due to a combination of the camera angle and for the racing mini games, the driving controls.
For most of the non racing minigames and challenges (but not full out sidequests), the camera "locks" in place, and usually at an angle where your view is obstructed. For example in the first trickster challenge in Manhattan, I died repeatedly I needed to make a jump, but kept bouncing off a ceiling I couldnt see due to scenery...until I got lucky and found the end of the ceiling.
The racing is even worse. For starters they now require you to use a vehicle (so no more using speedsters) for all the ground races. And the vehicle handling is some of the worst I've seen in any video game...and hopefully you hit every ring on the first try, cause reverse is barely functional. But you wont...because again the camera is abysmal. In the racing games (like the rest of the game) you can control the camera with the right thumb stick (and the car with the left). What this means though is that if you dont have the camera perfectly angled ahead of the turn you need to make....your not going to know where to go.
But the worst part is, its possible to line the camera up in such a way that the car appears to be in line with the ring, but isnt. This seems to happen on every sharp turn, and you wind up driving just to the side of the ring (and even if you pass halfway through it it doesnt seem to count)..and since you cant really reverse...you wind up blowing the race.
Which even in previous games wouldnt have been that big a deal, most of the races only required 10-20 rings to win. The shortest race I've seen yet in this game requires 35 rings, and the longest is 60. Given the camera angles and horrible controls....thats nearly impossible...and as a result this is the first lego game I've played where I recommend using cheat codes for any race locked characters.
Now I will say if they fix the races and minigame/challenge camera issues I'd kick the rating here up from 3 stars to 4 1/2. Yes the game is that good.
To sum up, if your a marvel fan, a lego game fan, or both you will likely love this game.......just be warned you will likely have to resign yourself to cheat codes to unlock many of the characters hidden behind races or minigames.
Next up, glitches... oh the glitches. The typical getting stuck in a spot and can't move or switch characters glitch is here yet again. Some of the quests in the city will get stuck making it impossible to progress because the game never initiated the next sequence so you get left standing there knowing something is supposed to happen but nothing does. This has happened about 5 times thus far forcing you to reset and re-do the quest and hopefully the game loads it right so you can complete it. Another glitch is with the 'dress up' quests when you have to go to the customizer and set up a character with a certain gear. Don't ever switch that character out during the quest because then the game gets confused and it won't allow you to complete it.
But other than those very annoying flaws, the game is a typical Lego game. The levels are fun, the story is entertaining, very high replay value, lots of open world stuff to do, tons of characters to unlock and play as (even though unless you're a Marvel enthusiast, you probably never heard of most of them and no X-Men, boo). Not a big fan of the open world layout either and not much thought was put into it, it's just a bunch of Marvel worlds crammed into one. Even though that's story related as to why that is, they could have done a better job separating the worlds and adding in more detail to them. This game is really lacking open world detail compared to the first Marvel Superheroes and especially Undercover where I feel like with both of those the map was huge, in this game it feels small and constricted.
Overall, it's a typical Lego game, it's lots of fun until the game decides to screw you over and crash or hit you with a glitch. I realize all the Lego games are pretty much the same thing, but if I had to rank them out from best to worst, I won't hesitate to put this one towards the bottom.
