Daniel Perez posted a new article, LEGO Marvel's Avengers DLC adds even more characters on March 29
Been playing this with a friend. Neat game, has a sort of "GTA for kids" element where you run around doing quests on a city map, some combat, and some puzzle solving.
Think I'll pass on the DLC, though.
How does this game compare to the Marvel Super Heroes one? I really enjoyed that one, but didn't seem like Avengers was very different except for a story standpoint. Fun one to play with my kids.
I was shocked when I saw the price for the whole season was only $9.
