Best Lego game yet!
1 January 2009 | by Adamant-ASee all my reviews

Wow! This game is excellent. I own every Lego video game so far, but none of them are as good as Lego Batman. I own it on the Wii, but it's also available on XBOX360, PS2, PS3, PC, and Nintendo DS.

Here's a quick review broken down in 3 parts: Story, Presentation (graphics and sound), and Gameplay.

Story: This game is not movie based, it is an original story taking place in the Batman universe (possibly the 1992 animated universe), all of Batman's greatest enemies have escaped from Arkham Insane Asylum to run Gotham City into the ground and destroy Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Commissioner Gordon. The villains include Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Two-Face, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn. The 15 villains have split up into 3 groups with 5 villains each.

Presentation: The graphics are pretty good, but they are about the same as Lego Indiana Jones which also came out in 2008.

The music is brilliant! It uses the Danny Elfman musical score from the Tim Burton Batman films of the early 90s as well as the score of the 1992 Batman Animated Series. Even though the music is not original, it is still great to listen to.

The voice overs are practically non-existent because all that is used are grunts, yells, shouts, etc... But that doesn't really matter because it's easy to figure out what's going on.

Gameplay: The game itself is very fun. There are 30 levels in total (totaling more than the previous 18 level Lego games) and you play 15 levels as the heroes and 15 as the villains. Level layout is a bit linear, but it is a simple and fun game (although it is hard to get full 100% and beat the game entirely, I have done it and it took me a couple of months!). Controls are easy and well responsive on any console.

Overall, this game is perfect to give to a Batman fan of ANY AGE (and is definitely the best Lego game ever) and is also the second best Batman game ever (Batman: Arkham Asylum is the best one).

Also, keep your eyes open for subtle Batman movie references within the game. There are many to be found!
