    If you love the LEGO games in the console world or more recently, LEGO City Undercover than LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes is a must have game for your Wii U.
  2. Despite sometimes feeling like a dry run for LEGO City: Undercover, this is rescued (aptly) by some brilliant heroes and top DC affection.

    LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is pretty solid on the Wii U. While there is some control issues that create frustration when the Wii remote jumps into the mix, the game still defines what a LEGO game should look and play like.

    LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is a great game marred by bad timing. If you don’t own it already for some peculiar reason, the Wii U version is probably the best iteration. However, if you already walked down this road, there is nothing here to warrant sinking the money in for a second helping.

    LEGO Batman 2 is on Wii U the same amazing game as on the other platforms. The Wii U version doesn't do anything that different, making this version a late port rather than a reason to pick this game up again.

    It may be too soon after LEGO City Undercover to truly appreciate LEGO Batman 2. Playing them nearly back-to-back accentuates the similarity of the core gameplay, and makes the many-reprised assets, actions and animations stick out. But if you have skipped the superior Wii U exclusive earlier, or you are hungry for more of the same, or you're looking for a co-op experience or if you simply need your LEGO games to be Batman-flavored, then LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is a solid option.

    There’s certainly a lot to enjoy here, but the series has moved on and improved in the year it's taken this port to arrive, so it doesn't have the shine it once did..

    My six year old son absolutely loves this game. The goals are simple and repetitive. The graphics are well done. However, he desperately wants us to play it with him, and this is where my complaints start. The controls for this game are HORRIBLE. I have not seen such poorly implemented flight controls since Superman 64. It is truly a torturous experience to fly in this game. Fighting on the ground is not much better. Whether or not you actually hit an enemy is mostly a factor of luck and button spamming. Do not buy this game if you love spending time with your children, because it will drive you to hide from them. Or, if you prefer not to lie to your children, because you may destroy the game and then accuse them of losing it somewhere. I plan on scratching mine so badly that it will no longer play. Collapse
