Insanely fun game... with original Danny Elfman music!,
This review is from: Lego Batman (Video Game)
This game is beautiful. Being a huge Batman fan, I had to buy it. I wasn't expecting it to be terrible, but I wasn't expecting it to be mind-blowing either, especially for the Nintendo DS. But it is quite, quite amazing. The graphics are decent, but the thing that really gets my nostalgia wheels turning is the soundtrack from the '89 Batman and Batman Returns by Danny Elfman! I am blown away by the fact that they used this music. I thought that they would just slap some synthesized Nintendo music on it, or some weird dark and brooding stuff that was made at the last second. The music by Elfman really captures the mood of the game and makes you feel like a kid again. It reminds me of the amazing Batman: TAS from the 90's. I get in the same mindset I did when I watch that TV show and it's highly recommended for anyone who calls themselves a Batman fan or just an appreciator of a fun game that kills time. It's a blast.

I couldn't have put it better. When I popped the game in and heard that familiar music, I was SO glad I didn't buy the New Super Mario Brothers.

I have a 4 yr old who is very good at playing his DS (like mother, like son! I'm a huge gamer at 33) and he LOVES Batman, Spiderman, etc. and I was curious about what age a kid should be to play this game? Whoever reads this can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you think. Thanks!!
