3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, But Buggy, November 9, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Batman - PC (Video Game)
Lego Batman is a very fun game. It is probably the best in the "Lego(insert franchise here)" series. But, as usual, PC is the LAST priority for gaming publishers and it shows on this game.

While the other versions play near flawlessly, this game doesn't.

I can't knock it too much. After all, it's one of those few games for people with an older system to still be able to enjoy modern games instead of the same stuff released a while ago.

After all, it can run on a 1Ghz Pentium III with only 256MB of memory and a DVD drive. I have a computer like that in my basement. But, I ran this game on my new computer: A Core 2 Duo with 2GB of memory and a 512MB Nvidia GeForce 8000.

Yet still, a game that should run flawlessly on my system somehow....doesn't.

The game IS fun, and I have it beaten near 100%, but sometimes you need to adjust your graphical settings and make them LOWER in order to pass certain levels. Especially during the Penguin boss fight for the heroes.

I should be able to get sucked into a game, not to stop and pause to change my settings.

Also, the AI is dumber than dirt and 7/10 times the computer DAMPERS your progress instead of HELPING it. Isn't that the point of a partner? To HELP you instead of HARM you?

A couple words of advice:

-GET A CONTROLLER. The PC controls are horrible!

-GET A GUIDE. Half the time, you won't be able to figure it out unless you are directed.

-Keep your display at 800x600 and turn all graphical options off(Shadows, bloom, etc.) It runs faster like this and less bugs occur.

-If you can, GET A SECOND PERSON TO PLAY THIS WITH YOU. The computer is so DUMB,(especially during Free Play mode) that you NEED an actual PERSON to play. For example, when I change into a toxin-resistant character to pass a pile of poison, you expect your partner to file suit, right? WRONG! He just stands there running in circles like an idiot. True example. Happened to me on one of the Joker stages.

So, all in all, a great game. Great replay value, but a terrible translation of a sure fire winner.
