Story and Gameplay
The Super Hero Squad is back for an all new adventure alongside Season 2 of the hit TV series.

To stop the power of the Infinity Gauntlet from falling into the wrong hands members of the Super Hero Squad will have to master the individual powers of the stones themselves, deal with Doctor Doom as well as the additional threat of the space tyrant Thanos who wants the gauntlet for his own purposes.
More than just a retelling of a modern classic from the back catalog of Marvel Comics, Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet features a variety of ways for players to experience the story of the Infinity Gauntlet through its three play modes.

You can play 2-players in the story mode or up to 4-players in the "challenge" mode. Story mode is just what it sounds like; you and another super hero progress through several levels in an attempt to stop the evil Dr. Doom and Thanos. If another player isn't present then the computer will control the extra hero, but you can swap between the two with the press of a button. The game isn't overly complex and is more a button masher, but each hero has a special ability that allows them to interact with the environment and these can be a little tricky for my son (but keep in mind he's 4). These special abilities can be as simple as just pushing a button to smash a huge obstacle out the way (Hulk, She-Hulk) or as complex as hacking a computer (Iron Man, Black Widow, Red Skull) by timing button presses to line up circuits. If my son was playing by himself there would be no way he be able to do some of these, but overall he handles himself fairly well in the game.
Each level in story mode will start you in control of two heroes, but after you beat the game you unlock "freeplay" mode where you can play through levels you've already beaten with the hero of your choice. This adds a lot of replay to the game since there are hidden areas that can't be accessed with the default characters of the levels. Also, each character has what's called "heroic feats" which are in-game challenges that will unlock an alternate costume. Very cool for comic fans!
The challenge mode are several small arena type levels in which you compete against other players for the highest score (even though they're obviously meant to be played with several players you can attempt them solo). Since this mode is more competitive in nature, you can hit each other. My son and I took more of the cooperative approach in this mode, but we still found ourselves hitting each other on accident at times. This mode is okay, but replaying the story mode in freeplay was a little more enjoyable.
Playable characters - Iron Man, Black Widow, Hulk, She-hulk, Thor, Nova, Wolverine, Reptil, Falcon, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Invisible Woman, Spider-man
There is DLC (downloadable content) for several character packs. My copy of the game came with one that gave us access to Captain America, Bucky, and Red Skull. We later bought another pack for $5 that gave us Dr. Doom and Abomination. There's one more pack available for $5 that we haven't purchased yet that contains Thanos. These characters come with their own "heroic feats" challenges and alternate costumes.
I was a little baffled at the difficulty of the game. Its not really difficult at all, but I put the game on "easy" since my son was playing and there were parts that we could not get past when playing together. I figured the enemies would hardly touch us but that thought was proved wrong; the last few levels I had to finish by myself to unlock the freeplay mode (which is where we had the most fun). The difficulty wouldn't have been much of an issue if he had another year or two under his belt.
If the game didn't have all the replay value I would have given it a 3 star rating, but its hard to not appreciate the extras. Overall, I give the game a solid 4 stars, with the fun-factor weighing in around a 3.5
Also: Be sure to buy it new as the game includes a code for Captain America as DLC.
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.
