A recent gameplay trailer has been revealed for Lego Marvel's Avengers, and to be honest, the game looks like a lot of fun! With over 100 Marvel characters to play as, this could be one of the biggest games in the LEGO series. But does it have what it takes to beat the best?

There have been so many instalments in the licensed Lego game series - 20 to be exact - so picking the best can be a difficult task. But let's take a look at 3 of the best Lego games in order to see the competition that Lego Marvel's Avengers is up against!

Can Lego Marvel's Avengers Beat These Guys?

Don't see your favourite Lego game mentioned on the list? Then let us know which one you like above all others in the comments below! There are a lot to choose from after all.

Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes

This was the first game in the franchise to introduce professional voice acting, and it has changed the series forever (and for the better). If you play some of the older games that feature that kind of primitive growling, you just can't connect with them as much. Aside from that, Lego Batman 2 strikes a fine balance of drama and humour, excellent narrative and gorgeous graphics, and a great open world to explore.

Not to mention that we had an awesome roster of DC characters to play as. By far, Lego Batman 2 is one of the best games in the Lego franchise!

Lego Lord of the Rings

The Lego game that you enjoyed the most more than likely hinges on the IP in question. Seeing as I love Lord of the Rings, and could enjoy original dialogue from the trilogy in this Lego experience - I was delighted. This took the franchise to new heights, especially with the trilogy's music accompanying your actions. Lego Lord of the Rings is an excellent game and one of the most enjoyable in the Lego video game series.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes

This is probably the starkest competition that Lego Marvel's Avengers faces. Lego Marvel Super Heroes gave us an endless array of Marvel characters to play as. With over 150 characters, a big open world to explore, and an awesome original storyline to tell, this is a classic in the franchise.

But can Lego Marvel's Avengers really top this experience? Can less characters and a more confined scope top this great game? Let us know what you think in the comments!
