In a nutshell, what it does, it does well. What it doesn't do is sometimes baffling.
As a Disney product, many elements about it are top notch. The figures look great, they play very true to their characters and the pre-made game(s), activated by placing either the mini-game discs (Both Marvel mini-games are included, the highly interactive Asgard Tower defense game and the Guardians themed dungeon crawler), as well as the Avengers games are well done and provide several hours of entertainment. Then as add-ons (not included with this starter set), there are two other playsets, a spider-man one and a Guardians of the Galaxy set that each have their own multiple hour games that are just plug and play with this set.
The games are fun, the characters have an authentic feel to them, and leveling them up isn't that hard and rewarding. This may be faint praise, but it is in my opinion, the best Avengers game ever made. The funny thing is, that isn't even the meat of the game.
The Toy Box is the real heart of the game. Using currency earned in games, you purchase and go through tutorials in a total sandbox environment, building your own video game, or downloading games that others have made to enjoy for yourself; since you have 300 save slots for Toy Boxes, you can try and keep as many as you want, as well as making your own. There are some real incredible games out there for quick download, either in the game or via logging in online and searching and marking the ones you want for the next time you're in your personal cloud save space.
So, what's the catch? The games are very oddly character restricted. Even the brand new Disney 2.0 Disney characters, Maleficent, Aladdin, and others can only play in the two add one games final stages. Avengers characters can only play in the Avengers games, not the Spider-man or Guardians playsets, and so forth with the spider-man and guardians characters. There are in game unlockables to allow two characters (Iron Man and Nova) to play in any of the playsets, while Hulk and Rocket Raccoon can both cross over into one other playset, but the rest of the characters are invalid. Why? I don't know. So any idea you had of Maleficent taking on Loki for the defense of Avengers New York, Black Widow taking on Green Goblin in Spider-mans New York, or Thor taking on Ronin in Guardians Knowhere are in vain. This also means that those somewhat pricey extra characters that are for sale are selective; you have to make sure you only get any figure you're interested in that plays in the same playset as the ones you have! Furthermore, certain downloaded Toy Box games are only for certain characters, so even some of them aren't every character friendly.
Had it been completely character friendly, even just within the Marvel Playsets, this would've felt like a much stronger entry. For the right price, it's a very fun game that has a lot to offer. Build your own in game home that also teaches you game building mechanics, a free form sandbox environment in which you can literally make any type of game you want, from a top down adventure game in an Aztec temple to a race game in a fiery castle, to horror games with finding diary fragments, to even some really fun Age of Ultron themed fan made games, complete with cutscenes. Heck, there's even re-creations of original Disney rides and the original theme park to have fun in! On top of that, there's lots of little touches to enjoy, such as when you throw Thors Hammer, it hits the enemies more then once, not just on the way out, but on the way back as well, Iron Man has a special move where he spins around firing his wrist lasers as seen in the movies, and more.
But why, oh why are the characters restricted? If the rumors are true (at this time), then the next Marvel pack - Age of Ultron with Hulkbuster Iron Man and Ultron won't even be compatible with this playset and instead require 3.0 instead? It's those things that hold back this good game experience from being a great one, along with the once very high entry price.
There is a Toy Box editor (level creation tool) which really deserves praise. Not only can worlds be laid out, but with the simply programmable Toys in it, you can make your own Toy Box and upload it for the world's other players to experience. This can really whet the appetite of young players to pursue other creative endeavors in programming or game design.
All the figures as well as the stand from the first game work with this edition.
