  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.

    LEGO Batman is great fun, but it's too easy and too familiar to get really excited about. [Nov 2008, p.92]

    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.
  4. It doesn't make particularly good use of the stylus, and the graphics won't blow you away, but if you're a Batman fan you won't find a better Batman game on the system.
  5. No challenge, but weirdly addicting, with lots of secrets to come back for.
  6. Fans of Lego games and the Dark Knight alike will likely enjoy Lego Batman for the DS as it is an enjoyable game for those on the go.

    LEGO Batman is lots of fun, especially if you haven't played a LEGO title before. [Dec 2008, p.96]

    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 onlyI 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.
