    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.

    Regardless of whether you're a Batman fan or not, or whether you're angry that Batman's name has once again been taken in vain, the reality is that Lego Batman is just fun. And even angry people like fun, right? [January 2009, p.61]

    Combat, while simplistic, captures some of the campy charm of the '60s Batman TV show. [Holiday 2008, p.72]
  4. But one thing is certain: LEGO Batman reminded me of the good old times when I was a kid.
  5. And as a game adults can get something out of at the same time as younger gamers, it's perfect.

    A cute and foolish platformer brings more fun then brick adventures of Indiana Jones. Excels in multiplayer, lacks in camera handling – no change since the very first "LEGO Star Wars." [Nov 2008]

    Lego Batman The Videogame is a nice game for the younger audience but also for the older audience and of course every Batman Fan. Unlike LegoLego Batman The Videogame is a nice game for the younger audience but also for the older audience and of course every Batman Fan. Unlike Lego Harry Potter years 1-4 it does not crash up on start up and runs all in all perfect. The Main Story itself is 6 hours long. But if you are really looking into it there is actually alot more that you can do. Once you complete a level you will unlock 'Free Play' which means you can once again go back to the level and do all the things you missed the first time you played it to 100% complete the game.

    Now the game doesn't have steam achievements but it does have a ingame gallery where you can see everything that you collected. Although I myself would off liked steam achievements a bit more this game was mainly aimed towards kids which means they got all the time in the world to collect every little piece in the game.

    Unlike the newer Lego Games this one has hardly any voice acting in it, meaning the only time you hear a voice is when they make a noise. At first it bothered me when I got the game a couple of years back but now it just add's to that comedy factor they were aiming towards and I love it.

    For the fact that this game came out in 2008 it is a gorgeous game that runs without problems!

    I can recommend this game for every Batman Fan and every Lego Fan.

    Fun and humorous game. Very suitable for any age, even hearing impaired because there is no dialogue. Story is told through humorious actionsFun and humorous game. Very suitable for any age, even hearing impaired because there is no dialogue. Story is told through humorious actions of the lego versions of batman charactors. Gameplay is very easy and fun. The boss battles was a bit hard to work out but once it is worked out how to solve boss battles, it is very easy. A very enjoyable lego game that anyone can play, no matter young or old. I was 30 when I played this and still enjoyed it. Expand
