I bought this game because it came with two games. I played this, and it was pretty fun for a lego game, and after beating the game I can say that it would be a very fun and challenging for a child gamer that likes legos. Once you have beaten a level you would think your done, but no. After you have completed each level you can go back and collect all the stuff that you cannot get in story mode. Because in story mode you are only "Batman" and "Robin", and in "Free Play Mode" you get all the people you need to go through special effects in each level to get the bonuses. Because once you have completed all the levels in "Hero" and "Villain" Modes, it only brings you to about 46%/100% complete. So if you like games that make you think, and are fun without the "T" or "M" rating, and graphic nature. Get this game, and you will have a good, fun time Playing "LEGO Batman" with your friends and Family.
Great LEGO game
If your looking for a fun LEGO game, I would recommend LEGO Batman! With it's fun-filled levels, build-able LEGO objects and crazy variety of characters, your sure to find something you like in this game! There is three sets of levels, each set containing five levels, for the heroes and the villains! After you complete a level in story mode, you unlock free play mode, which is where you are able to play with any character you want! In free play mode, you can go back through a level to get the minikits or get more studs to get Super Hero (or villain) in the level. Super hero is when you collect a certain amount of studs in one level. With your studs you can purchase new characters, vehicles etc. You can also create your own custom LEGO character to play as in a level, in custom character you can change your character's hat, head, weapon, hands and so on. So overall LEGO Batman is a great game for any kid gamer or someone who just wants to enjoy a fun game with easy achievements! :)
It Grew On Me
At first I wasn't sold on this game after playing the first couple of missions. I love Lego games but was never much of a Batman fan. I love the fact that you can play as either the hero or the villain. Villain mode made this game freaking awesome!
Classic Batman with a Fun Lego Twist
All the villians have broken out of Arkham and Gotham City is at their mercy. In steps Batman and Robin to save the day, well I mean night. The funny lego acting will keep you smiling, and the film allusions are of a slightly different take. Now that it is being produced as a Platinum Hit you can buy it new again. Any Batman fan will find this surprisingly fun and refreshing. As for the kids, yeah its still easy enough for them to enjoy.
Same Legos, Not movie series
In reading about this upcoming release in the realm of Lego based video games, I've seen that this game isn't based on the movies as Star Wars and Indiana Jones were, and we can all be thankful for that. It would be a huge mistake to do it that way, especially doing 6 levels of Batman and Robin, the worst Superhero movie sequel ever made. Yes, it will be the same lego formula, but duh, we already knew that and it didn't hurt the re-release of Lego Star Wars in the form of the Complete Saga and Indiana Jones has done just as well. Despite the similarities, this game will be different from the ones that came before it. Since these are Legos we're talking about, the graphics have been great so far, it's not like we should look for graphics rivaling Gears of War or something. Oh and if you have Lego Indy, you do get to watch a "PREVIEW" of the Lego Batman game and it looks great to me. The Lego games have been great fun so far and I don't think Batman will change that and I don't see Lego Walker Texas Ranger happening either.
Great for kids and adults!
I bought this game for my 4 year old son not knowing I would get sucked into playing it every night. This is a great game to play as a family or alone. It's just the right challenge level for kids and adults. The details in the game are clever and there are so many funny things that happen throughout. This game really teaches teamwork and problem solving. There are a ton of secrets that keep you replaying levels over and over. The controls are very simple. The sound and graphics are great. There is virtually no loading time between levels. The length of the levels are good and the overall length of the entire game is just about right although I wish it were longer because it's so much fun! I can't wait to play the other games in the Lego series. Buy this game, its worth it!
An outstanding game, the pinacle of the lego games so far.
The lego series of games are great, the tell their stories with a tongue in cheek humor using lego mini-figs that make them very entertaining. The game is simple enough for a casual gamer to pick up and enjoy, but has enough puzzles and unlockables to satisfy a hard core gamer. This game takes it up a notch telling the tale of three different plots by three different groups of Arkham inmates in their quest to wreak havoc on Gotham city. First you play through plot from Batmans side of the story for 6 levels, then you have the option of going back and replaying the level on free play trying to unlock more items and solve more puzzles, or you can play through the plot from the villains perspective for 6 levels. A truly outstanding game and a must have for your library.
Surprisingly, A Favorite
LEGO Batman was my first LEGO series game, and as a girl gamer, I was impressed. Graphics and sound are almost unimportant to me, especially in a game where there's no talking. The levels are a breeze to go through, but the overall "puzzle" feel of the bosses, instead of just a hack-n-slash, is very appealing. The co-op mode is only so-so mostly because the most fun part is beating each other to death. Your friend has to follow you at the heels, and pretty much just gets in the way. On the plus side, there are some really creative and fun achievements. My favorite part of the game is going back and using all the different characters, heroes and villains alike. Overall, a good game.
This game is excellent i picked it up yesterday and have been playing it non stop. The storyline is great because the characters can't talk but they still through in funny moments all the time. The graphics are amazing, the best of the lego games so far, and the controls are perfectly coordinated. The character list is very diverse and the boss battle are pretty challenging. The game is pretty lengthy but i could be longer. If you are a fan of at least one of the other Lego games you should definitely pick this up. I would recommend this to every person i know it is definitely one of the best action platformers out there. Also a great function of this game is the suite technology allowing you to switch between different batman and robin characters through out each level. I give it a 10 out of 10!
