This time it’s the turn of Marvel and an incredible cast of iconic superheroes, 150 in fact, to assemble inside a world full of typical TT Games humor.

Without question, LEGO Legends of Chima Online is geared towards younger gamers. It is, after all, based on a toy line and a CG-animated TV show on Cartoon Network.

In many ways, Legends of Chima Online is like a simplified Diablo, and that’s why it can work for older gamers, too.
