A Lego video game that allows you to play through all of Gotham as Batman, Robin and the entire rogue’s gallery of villains (including Hush!) that makes it one of the most appealing games since… Star Wars: Force Unleashed.
My own 2 cents after I get a chance to play it myself.
This game is incredibly addictive and very well designed to boot! Separating the flow of the game into separate levels on the trail of each super villain first as Batman and then as one of the Dark Knight‘s foes is a wonderfully ingenious way to get the most out of the game’s level design.
But the unique upgrades to the tried and true Lego game design doesn’t end there. Batman and Robin can switch into custom suits at special access ports at key locations in the game. Anything from a magnet suit allowing Robin to walk up walls to the demolition suit granting Batman the ability to blow up certain obstacles.
A real treat for Batman comic book fans, each map is so intricately designed that you’ll find yourself walking in the Bat Cave in a dream-like state of wish fulfillment (well, I totally dug it in any case).
The humor (which some say is hit and miss in these games) is spot on. In cut scenes Clayface plays the buffoon, often twirling around in office chairs rather than listen to the Riddler‘s scheme or making his own playhouse out of stolen loot.
The most innovative Lego game to date and definitely the most fun Batman video game I’ve ever played, I cannot recommend this game enough!
