  1. 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.

    This is how all casual games should be.
  3. While the Dark Knight might not seem the ideal candidate for the happy and cheerful Lego world, the entire affair is handled with a good-natured wink, and we are all reminded that the purpose of these games is to take us to a world where the lines between good and evil are clearly defined and evil is more a thing of comic mischief than serious malice.
  4. If you are looking for a family-friendly action-platform game, Lego Batman is sure to please. There is a lot of good content here that will please both the casual Batman fan and the old-school Batman fanboy.
  5. LEGO Batman is new territory for the team at TT Games, with no memorable film scenes to recreate or iconic moments to build out of bricks. The results are surprisingly great, with detailed levels and three fun episodes of vexatious villainy for Batman to foil.
  6. It's the same Traveller's Tales Lego experience once again. Apart from the fact that Batman is now the subject matter, very little is new here and the gameplay is far from fresh.
  7. 50
    While not necessarily a bad game, Lego Batman scrapes through under the definition of 'fun'.

    Not more of the same. There is new stuff here. Playing the story as villians is pretty darn cool.

The game has a fun campaign which isI 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. Expand

    The game show nothing more than that Batman is only as good as his tools. The game feels empty. Without an established story to comicallyThe 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.

    Bah dis donc, pour un titre destiné surtout à nos chères têtes blondes, les casse-têtes sont étonnamment casse-burnes et sans grande logique.Bah dis donc, pour un titre destiné surtout à nos chères têtes blondes, les casse-têtes sont étonnamment casse-burnes et sans grande logique. Je doute qu'ils persévèrent longtemps devant des trucs pareils. Ce n'est pas le seul souci de ce jeu avec sa caméra fixe et les déplacements des personnages très approximatifs, la faute encore à cette caméra bien naze.

    Le pire à ce sujet concerne les **** véhicules quasi impossibles à manoeuvrer correctement, c'est juste une horreur. La musique reprise du premier film Batman est évidemment superbe mais souvent répétitive et souvent répétée ad nauseam : on préfère l'éteindre, un comble... L'interface générale bien que simple n'est pas vraiment agréable et n'exploite pas la manette comme il faudrait, à croire que chez TT Games, on a peur d'utiliser tous les boutons de la manette.

    Le jeu reste joli graphiquement, c'est toujours ça de pris mais très insuffisant pour un jeu qui accumule les lacunes comme les perles et collectionne les erreurs de game design. C'est très ennuyeux et trop mal fait.
