Third installment in the lego series,
This review is from: Lego Batman - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
This is the third TT lego project, after star wars and indiana jones. If you have gotten to batman, you have probably played one or both of the two. You can expect a lot of the same. The game definitely appeals to the completists, those who are trying to find all of the pieces to the various kits, which, once you get through the game on the initial run, is pretty much what's left. So if you like hunting for those pieces, this game will entertain you for hours and hours - it's pretty long, much longer than indy at 30 episodes, and some are quite long. I do have to say that this game is a little easier than previous lego efforts on piece hunting (some of the red bricks are downright easy to find!) This time around, you get mostly the same two characters with suit changes/upgrades, which is a nice twist, but makes it a little crazy with free play flipping through your options.
The lack of direct movie tie-in is both disappointing and charming - if you are familiar enough with the batman legacy, you will recognize chunks from previous shows and movies rather than, say indiana jones which basically follows the movies. It lacks a real story, but seeing the various chunk smashed together in one video game is entertaining for me.
The controls are not that interesting. I find the wii batarang a little annoying to game play.
After playing all three lego video games, I would recommend the star wars first, this second, and indy third, mostly due to length.
