The LEGO games are fun for the whole family, young and old, the animated LEGO movie links to the gaming threads are wild & wicked and worth the purchase on their merits alone. The format for Batman is much like the Lucasfilm game sets, just not directly connected to any particular movies...although (thankfully) the Danny Elfman music (circa 1989) runs throughout the game, the style is generic Batman via LEGO LAND. The villains have teamed up to escape Arkham Asylum and the Dynamic Duo must stop them...each villain has a story arc to unlock, before free play is possible in the related locations...so like the previous installments, replay value is high, you can return to the story setting later as several optional characters including the villians themselves in order to find hidden "trophies" to build in Wayne Manor (part of the Batcave hub, where menus, story progress and unlockables lie). This way the same tales have many variations for players to explore, collecting the coin-like "studs" as currency for upgrades and unlockables. There's roughly about 30 separate levels to play, 15 in the hero chapters and 15 levels i the villain chapters.
LEGO BATMAN characters have individual moves, Batman for example can put baddies in a choke hold and throw them. An exciting addition to LEGO combat is the BATARANG, which will lock on targets for distance attacks. Introduced also, are special suits for Batman and Robin, these make certain combinations of characters a necessity for passing stages or solving puzzles...Read more ›
When I rented this one I was worried as for me the Lego Indiana Jones was quite disappointing - short playtime, many bugs and glitches and just not as fun missions.
However Batman delivers. Game looks much better than any of the previous ones, there are a lot of missions - you get play the Villains and the heroes in separate episodes. In general the game seems more polished than the predecessors.
Humor is still there and the animations are funny. In general very fun game for 1 or 2 players.
For younger players the game might be a little more challenging than the star wars ones. Also game contains hacking and slashing of lego characters - obviously its done in very non-gruesome way but there is beating of the bad guys.
Game has a lot puzzle-like elements - you have to figure out your way through the missions buy building and finding different things. Some of these can be quite hard for younger kids.
With bigger and more grand environments the characters often end up being quite small and the biggest source of frustration is when the camera angles don't reveal where you are walking very well.
We (me and my wife) finished the 1st set of the missions on the rental and now I am buying the game (never bought indy)
Then, after you have beaten a level, you can go back and play it in freeplay mode, choosing from among any of the characters you've unlocked along the way. Typically, you unlock villain characters by defeating them in story mode, and other characters by purchasing them using coins you earn during gameplay. But once you've unlocked Arkham Asylum, you also open up a whole new set of campaigns featuring the bad guys, with new story modes specifically for the villains.
Some levels you will need to complete multiple times to get all the things there are to get, because different characters have their own abilities and sometimes you need a certain character to get to a certain item. For this reason it never gets old replaying levels you've already beaten, because going through a previously beaten level with a new set of characters makes the whole experience feel fresh all over again. This gives the game tremendous replay value. You acquire hero packs and red bricks in these levels which are useful because the red bricks give you new options and cool tricks to try out during gameplay, and the hero packs go into the trophy room at Wayne Manor to build status representing the different levels you've beaten.Read more ›
