Lego Marvel Super Heroes review

I LOVE all of the Lego games (save for possibly the Indiana Jones games, they are so-so).  So I was REALLY excited for TT to do the Marvel universe properly.  I got through the game (the game levels) once, completed the races, collected all but 4 of the characters, and put a total of 39 hours into the game through all the bugs.  Then the ultimate bug happened.  It froze during saving the game.  So I HAD to power the XBox down by unplugging the power cable.  Unfortunately it corrupted the save file that I only had one of so 39 hours went out the window.  LEGO Super Marvel Heroes is a fun romp through the Marvel universe with very witty puns and shots taken at everything to include Samuel L. Jackson's "Snakes on a Plane" movie.  But the bugs are frustrating, especially when it corrupts the save file.  And TT has made it where you really can't backup save anything because of how they save the files.

Oof.  That sucks.  There is a workaround to backup important save files -- just takes a bit of manual work.  Whenever I'm feeling ultra paranoid about a save, I'll manually copy the file(s) to a different storage device -- (ie, hard drive or thumb drive).  It's DEFINITELY preferable when you can just do it from within the game, but maybe this could help you avoid losing so much work next time.  :\

Alaina,Usually I'll do that.  However, it just so happened that I was out of town visiting my son in another state this last weekend, and didn't bring a thumb drive or anything else except the hard drive.  The hotel I stay at does that stupid password at the webscreen deal so you can't hook the internet up for cloud access through the XBox.  So I relied on the Hard Drive.  I should've known better with all the freezes I had with the game.  But my son wanted to play, and I did too.  It's a good game.  A fun romp through the marvel universe.  But losing 39 hours is a real bummer.  And it's hard to start over knowing that the bugs caused me to start over.  It is especially difficult to start over with the XBox One coming out midnight on Friday and me having 5 games for that.  Maybe I'll get LEGO Marvel for XBox One come payday.  But unless I do, because of the save corruption I can't be bothered to start it over right now.  Great game, too many bugs right now.
