  1. Batman Lego is awesome, simply awesome. It’s great to play alone or with a friend in the story mode or without restrictions in free play.
  2. If you’ve played those other titles, you’ll feel right at home in the Dark Knight’s plastic paved Gotham. And, if you’ve enjoyed those titles, and are looking for more of the same but with a Batman facelift, you may find this the best Lego entry yet.

    A cheesy, lighthearted and consistently fun merging of the Caped Crusader's comicbook world with the Lego videogame formula, which is expanded but not fundamentally changed here. The format may be getting a bit tired, but Batman is the best fit for it yet given his huge array of villains, vehicles and gadgets.

    Another fantastic LEGO game. LEGO Batman is simple enough for kids to mash their way through, but addicting and deep enough to hold the interest of their parents, and the rare game perfect for them to play together.

    With a great variety of levels, tons of things to smash and collect, and a loveable cast of iconic heroes and villains, LEGO Batman is a fun and enjoyable title that will appeal not only to younger gamers but to Batman fans alike.
  6. A really enjoyable game that is great for solo and co-op gaming.

    I don't fully remember this game because I played it when i was younger, but what a remember was fun. The game has a fun campaign which is best co-op. A great feature this game has is being able to play as the villains in their own stages that lead up to the hero stages. Another great feature is the different batman suits you can wear, which add a fun twist to the game play. Though flawed and annoying at time LEGO Batman is overall fun experience. Full Review »

    The game show nothing more than that Batman is only as good as his tools. The game feels empty. Without an established story to comically retell, the game relies on slap stick to try and get a laugh but fails. The classic Lego elements are there, but the charm isn't. The villains can't do what the bat and bird can and vice versa which leads to a rather simple freeplay experience of role reversal.

    The pieces just didn't fit together this time.

    I enjoyed this lego game a lot. I'm thinking of trying Lego Batman 2 as well. This has Good single player witch you can play as the good guys and the bad guys witch means more playable characters witch was very good idea. Multiplayer with a friend is even better and a lot more fun. Single player 7/10 Multiplayer 8/10 Lego Batman 7.9/10 Full Review »
