    LEGO DC Super-Villains is a charmingly funny game that combines the joy of LEGO with the creative coolness of the DC roster. The game isn't hard by any means, but it's a great casual romp through an interesting story. The massive roster is impressive and the detail put into each character makes each one of them worth putting time into.

    The LEGO formula may be growing tired at this point, but LEGO DC Super-Villains is still one of the best games TT Games has produced and is an excellent use of the DC licence.

    Overall, while it’s still mostly the same as previous titles in the Lego series, Lego DC Super-Villains offers some much needed twist in terms of story, shining a light on the life of the bad guys and girls in the comic book universe. Add in the superb voice acting, the many different powers that you get to wield as the villains, as well as the huge amount of activities scattered throughout its open world and you’re bound to have a good time being bad.

    There are few cute changes to the well known LEGO way of gaming, but the story is so hard to follow and the many characters that are not too well known make it even more chaotic. Too bad, cause this game is really funny, combined with excellent voice acting.

    This new LEGO game is mostly very atmospheric thanks to the setting, the characters and the story. Creating your own character is a great feature but apart from that, LEGO DC Super-Villains is still built on the archaic LEGO-game template. Which means all the criticism aimed at LEGO games in general, apply here too. Familiar bugs, messy coop multiplayer, not enough buttons et cetera. You know exactly what you're going to get if you've played any other LEGO game in the past. Worth it if you really like the DC universe.

    The collectibles are easier to amass, the puzzles have some challenge, and the character creation is enjoyable. If nothing else, you get to hear Mark Hamill’s sillier version of the Joker. That alone makes the price of admission worth it.

    Ultimately, Lego DC Super-Villains goes down as another cookie-cutter Lego game, and while there's still plenty of merry mayhem to unleash, it's the same kind of mayhem we've seen before. What should be as wild and riotous as the Clown Prince of Crime comes off as just another mild-mannered reporter.

The story is fun, the voice talent involved is incredible (Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg, Yvette Nicole Brown, Tara Strong.. the list goes on and on), the levels are diverse, and the hub world is loads of fun to explore. The wide cast of characters from DC Comics are all given their own personal charms to differentiate each and every one of the nearly 200 character roster. No longer do characters feel "copy and pasted," as the animations for each character really set them apart. The character customizer is also the best yet, with a plethora of new options added to truly expand who you can create.

    On the other hand, if you're not into LEGO games, or haven't played one before, this is an excellent way to start. They're simple, stress-free games that are fun for all ages. LEGO DC Super-Villains is packed to the brim with DC comics goodness, and I couldn't recommend this entry into the franchise more.

    As someone who grew up with lego games I have never grown accustomed to enjoying the post 2012 changes lego games went though. I reallyAs someone who grew up with lego games I have never grown accustomed to enjoying the post 2012 changes lego games went though. I really enjoyed the pre-2012 (mumble) lego games and I always thought the dialogue took something away from the games. That being said, this is one of the first lego games post 2012 that I genuinely liked. The dialogue and voice acting was actually pretty good. Mark Hamel voiced the joker which was awesome. One addition that was appreciated was the open world area where you can mess around with characters and do miniquests. It's an evolution of lego games that actually feels like a major improvement. The main reason I took off points was because of the mission design and the slew of abilities and powers. The levels are more like one or two condensed areas that have too much stuff going on. The older games had the level design a bit more spread out and adventurous which I really prefer to cluttered and claustrophobic. It's also a bit overwhelming with how many different abilities you have to remember exist and some abilities are only used by one or two characters. Anyway, that's just what I thought of the game based on my biased opinion. Expand

I have found that this game has a lot of bugs in it for a DC game, I have the FIRST Lego Batman game, and it runs better than this, and it is over 10 years old. I think the game is great and so is the story, but the amount of bugs is ridiculous for a new game. Expand
