As the main cast begin to be introduced at the beginning of the first Avengers movie, we find Captain America struggling to cope with modern day life and instead hiding himself away from the world in a gym. As Captain Rogers pounds the punch bag, dealing with his demons, we’re thrown back in time to the 1940’s on one of his adventures against Red Skull.
One last mission with Bucky sees Cap’s best friend lost in action…
Part 3: Rail HYDRA
Primarily based on the events from Avengers Assemble and Avengers: Age of Ultron, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers takes the bricked adventure deep into the heart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While these movies alone provide more than enough iconic moments to produce a fantastic video game, the developers went one step further and integrated key points from Captain America’s two solo outings, Iron Man’s threequel (The less said about Trevor, the better) and Thor’s adventure into the nine realms during the convergence.
Not limited to the same linear path as the movies, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers cleverly plays through the timeline of the MCU in such a way that you don’t always see what is coming next. A great example of this is very early on in LEGO’s unique retelling of the first Avengers movie as we are slowly introduced to the core heroes. The gym scene with Steve Rogers fighting through the pain and loss he’s dealing with, which in the movie is presented by flashbacks, sends us hurtling back through time to take on Red Skull in 1940’s Europe.
Released in 2016, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers continued TT Games’ great work with movie to LEGO game transitions and gave fans a chance to experience these iconic movies and their amazing character in a new bricked up way.
