  • Summary: A stampede of notorious criminals have busted out of Arkham Asylum, where Gotham City houses only the shadiest of characters. It's up to the famed Caped Crusader to sweep Gotham clean of criminal activity using everything at his disposal, including crime-fighting vehicles as well as several baddie-bashing bat gadgets.

  1. A thoroughly entertaining game that has a wide appeal for young and old. The low level of violence and simplicity of challenge makes it easy to play. A good solid family game that we highly recommend.

    Even though it's very close to the same game in a different skin, LEGO Batman is still a lot of fun to play, with a lot of places to explore and a lot of extras to uncover.
  3. No challenge, but weirdly addicting, with lots of secrets to come back for.
  4. It wasn't a bad game, just too much too soon. I hope that Lucasarts and Travellers Tales learn their lesson from this mistake and wait a while for the next LEGO release.
  5. Holy licence to print money! They’ve done it again. For the moment, the LEGO game formula is still working its magic.
  6. LEGO Batman's DS version will surely appeal to players who enjoyed the other LEGO series games. However, it won't leave the same impression or sensation that any previous version left.
  7. It's a simple, bland, but competent game for kids and no one else.

    Next to Batman: Arkham City, this is the best Batman game ever (especially for kids under 13.) With boss fights are every corner, Batman Action, and everything else, how could you ask for a better family game. This is a must buy for anyone who plays on their Nintendo Ds, Expand

    I absolutely love this game. I played all the Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones and this is by far the best one yet. My boyfriend introduced me to the lego series and I have love it ever since. The graphics in this version has improved and the mobility of the characters have been perfected. I like how they kept the comic theme in each level and the outline of the game is just so much fun. Alot of things to do and accomplish. I recommend this anyone, esp. girls like me who don't always like to play war/fighting games! Expand

    i funny enough, really enjoyed the game, the way we could explore gotham, play new characters and even complete the game in a copuple of days,, its very addictive but lovable at the same time, i couldnt stop playing and got a hit from my grandma for playing too much, so all in all, truly great game, well done the people who made this game at TT.

    I love Batman and this was a really fun game. LEGO games are already addictive enough but throw Batman in the mix and its great. The only real problem is the AI in the game, it could have been a little more challenging in my opinion but its still a great game. If you like LEGO games and have a DS than this is a must buy.

    It's not terrible DS game, but very entertaining. Despite the idiotic AI and control schemes, the extra swag will actually entice you to play more. Not the best lego game i've played, but its at least funny and solid. Expand

    Consider this game like a Batman skin for the previous Lego games. Too similar and without a decent level design (it's stupid to press a button to release a Lego kit to build another button to be able to press another button etc). If you already have a Lego Star wars or Lego Indiana Jones forget this one. If you don't, try these ones rather than Lego Batman. Expand
