    There are jokes, puns, quips, slapstick, a cool Resogun section, puzzles, laughs, cheesy character flight tunes (Superman flying to his theme tune is amusing) and a ton of Adam West to keep a smile on your face for hours.

    With couch co-op for two, LEGO Batman 3 is a picture-perfect game to play alongside children. It can be a bit slow going at the start, but power through the introductory missions, acquire some suits, and things really start rolling.

    It is a very fun game with quite acceptable longevity and very different things to unlock and to do.

    I like Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, but I don’t love it as much as I’ve loved previous games in the series.

    Bizarrely, BG drops the open-world setup that's made the most recent Lego games such grand experiences. [Jan 2015, p.86]

    An engaging and often hilarious joyride.

    This is a series that refuses to grow, even as it chases an older audience.

The puzzles were original and really got me trumped and challenged at certain sections of the game. Expand

    People who know me in real life, know i'm a HUGE comic book fan, particularly DC comics. Lego batman 3: beyond Gotham is the DC comics game iPeople who know me in real life, know i'm a HUGE comic book fan, particularly DC comics. Lego batman 3: beyond Gotham is the DC comics game i have been waiting for.

    The story is packed with DC comics lore and characters. The Justice League, and the Legion of Doom team up to stop Braniac from shrinking the Earth. In my opinion, this is the best plot of any Lego game so far. You will travel across the galaxy, from Earth, to the watchtower, to all the lantern planets. You also get a nice, small variety of characters to play as throughout the 15 levels. You get all the main players of the Justice League, like Superman, Batman, Wonder woman, Martian Manhunter, and a few others. You also get to play as the Legion of doom, with team players such as Lex Luthor, The Joker, Cheetah, and Solomon Grundy. In conclusion, i was VERY happy with the campaign.

    The gameplay is the same as always with a lego game. Punch hordes of goons, break stuff, build stuff, solve puzzles, it's as great as ever in Beyond Gotham. Some new features include the ability to switch suits on the fly, some new flight controls (Which were in Marvel Super Heroes actually.), and some other stuff. A lot of the character powers are really diverse as well, only a few characters, like a lot of the big figures, felt like carbon copies of each other. Oh, and the character selection was huge. I was definitely surprised to see characters like detective chimp, platinum, and swamp thing. Oh, and my favorite DC comics character of all time, Deathstroke, was in the roster, which i was so happy to see.

    My one gripe with this game is the open world. Instead of one, big, interesting open world, we have several, small, generic planets. But, the hall of doom is available for exploration. While it is very confined, i do love that location (I LOVE the DC villains.) But, other than that, i very much adore this game's experience.

    This is one of the best Lego games I ever played, and is a must play for any DC comics fan. 9/10

Fans of DC will really be delighted whether it is for the 12 hours main campaign, or for the 15 hours of side quests, exploration and Free Play you'll have to do if you wish to have 100%.

    And speaking of side quests let's talk about the main issue of the game, in this game you don't have an open world like we were used to since Lego Batman 2, instead there is one HUB (the Watch Tower) that is connected to others small zones you can also explore freely but always with a loading time, so you don't have an open world but 9 HUB zones, and (like a lot of other people) I consider this a minor step back.

    Gameplay wise it's still typical Lego games, platforms, puzzles, fights and the absence of difficulty will mix just right to give an entertaining experience (even if the fighting part is always a bit messy), the local coop is very fun and the children will love the art graphics style a Lego game offers.

    Finally the technical side of the game, and once again it is a minor step-back from previous Lego games,for a PS4 game they could really make better effect (closer from the Lego movie) but must of all this game is bugged : you character get stick in walls, the game close itself, etc...).

    In conclusion Lego Batman 3 is still a fun game, but not as much as some older Lego games and therefore this step-back can be annoying, but if you like DC comics and/or legos, and/or child friendly platforming game, it's still a very good purchase choice.
