Basically a first timer to Lego games, and what a trip!,
This review is from: Lego Batman (Video Game)
I had only vaguely played the Lego Star Wars game, and Indiana Jones, well I had passed on that. But when a green haired lego Joker is staring me in the face, who am I to resist?
The game is quite simply a nostalgia overload of goodness. Everything you loved about Batman and everything you loved about Legos...all in one. The game features an original storyline, not a rehash of any Batman episode or movie you've seen. It combines all of the characters and villains that you know (Joker, Penguin, Riddler, etc) and a few that maybe you don't (Poison Ivy, Killer Moth). And they all become controllable characters as well. One of the best aspects of the game is the at times ingenious ways you combine the capabilities of the different characters to solve puzzles. One may have super strength while another has mind control and another can swim underwater. All the abilities need to be used in concert to get 100% of the experience in the game.
At times, the game feels a little hack-and-slash, but somehow it never gets old. The constant quest for the latest unlockable, trying out a new character, or solving a perplexing puzzle...it just keeps driving you. And rest assured there is a lot to find in this game. It can definitely keep you busy for a while.
I don't know if all the Lego games are this good, but if you're like me, you won't regret making Lego Batman your first!
