Since this is based on the MCU, the roster is not going to be as big as Lego Marvel Super Heroes. As this is based on the Avengers films, you have the main heroes of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Black Widow, alongside the supporting characters and villains for the first two films. However, the game does add some other characters like Daredevil, Luke Cage, and even the likes of Lou Ferrigno (who can transform into the 1978 show Hulk) and Stan Lee (who returns from Lego Marvel Super Heroes as a collectible known as Stan In Peril, and an unlockable character). Sadly, anyone owned by other studios do not appear (however, Spider-Man would be in a DLC pack alongside other incarnations as Captain America: Civil War would have Sony allow Marvel Studios to use him).
For levels, the main story levels are based on Avengers and Avengers: Age Of Ultron. However, there are also levels based on the solo movies connected to the films that were released at the time (like Captain America: Winter Soldier and Iron Man 3). Also, the game offers DLC levels that also boasts characters, with one of them being based on the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D show.
As for the game, it is an amazing recreation The game uses a mix of archived audio (for the movie characters) and newly-recorded dialogue (for characters who didn't appear in the game). As with every Lego Game ever since the first Lego Star Wars game, each character has his or her own special abilities that are needed to access certain rooms or collectibles, like Captain America's shield being used to trigger switches and deflect lasers, or Scarlet Witch using mind control to take control of an NPC who can pull a switch to open the way to a hidden collectible. One new feature in each level is The Collector, who will ask for a certain object in a level, which awards red bricks, and when fighting, two characters can combine their powers for a powerful team-up attack.
Sadly, other than those changes, the game plays like its predecessor. In fact, the Manhatten hub is copy-and-pasted from Lego Marvel Super Heroes, with the only difference being new dialogue and missions. This game is still good, and is worth playing if you are a fan of Marvel, Lego, or both.
