I went on an incredible overdrive over the weekend to get the LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Platinum Trophy complete and get this strategy guide review done. I didn’t have to get the Platinum Trophy to get everything out of the guide that I needed, but it was so easy to get the other trophies before reaching that coveted 100% completion in a LEGO game. That part had to achieved before reviewing the guide, and it happened to be the very last thing I did, as the screenshot above evidences. One trophy is to witness the 100% fountain in the Avengers Tower, which was the second to last trophy I earned.
I brought in Falcon and Quicksilver to the party, because they were my heart and soul for getting all of the Hub worlds completed. Quicksilver was primarily my man for Manhattan, as it’s quite easy to run around the Big Apple with his super speed. Falcon I used in every Hub, as he was my man for flying. He was far smoother to control than any other flying character, and it’s thanks to him (and Quicksilver, really) that I finished any of the races. The vehicle handling is atrocious in the game, and thanks to these two, I was able to complete each race with ease.
Other honorable mentions include
- Hawkeye, both Kate and Clint, as their weapons made them the veritable jacks-of-all-trades,
- Jane Foster Thor, because I like her comic,
- Tigra, because using her scan ability avoids one of the dumbest mini-games in the game,
- Ultron, for his repair ability because switching him out was easier than Iron Man every damn time, and
- Vision, for his tunnel grate ability and host of other abilities that made him more efficient to use than others who could use the grates.
Thank you all so much for making LEGO Marvel’s Avengers a better game than LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, even though that one had Deadpool.
Another thing I will say about this game is that getting the Platinum has given me additional courage in getting the other wayward Platinum trophies from the LEGO games. I never did finish LEGO Batman 2 or LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, because the Hub world overwhelmed me too much. But now thanks to this game, I have a method to transversing the Hubs. However, I think I also need a break from LEGO games for a little while. They’re fun, but they do get tedious.
