    Despite some technical shortcomings, Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham does a fine job of continuing to build on what the series has established while also hitting all the right notes to keep pleasing Bat-fans of all ages.

    LEGO Batman 3 Beyond Gotham is the biggest and best LEGO DC Comics games to date!

    It has some technical issues, but apart from them, it is a very enjoyable experience and recommended for fans of the LEGO-driven games.

    It’s a recycled formula that has worked over and over again and it has left some gameplay issues that should have been fixed long ago (e.g. floaty control or collision detection); however, the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” formula works and for many that will most likely be fine for them.

    Unlike some of the better previous titles like LEGO Batman 2 and LEGO Marvel, LEGO Batman 3 feels more claustrophobic, smaller in scale and lacks that open feel that the aforementioned titles gave us.

    Beyond Gotham could have stood for some more innovation, but it's impossible to deny that it's a charming game with its tried-and-true.

    Lego Batman 3 has all the ingredients of the other, enjoyable, Lego superhero games, but is let down by clunky controls, poor signposting and questionable translations of well-known comic book personalities.

    Hate to say the usual, but it's true: if you're a fan of the Lego games in general, you'll enjoy this one pretty much by default. As far asHate to say the usual, but it's true: if you're a fan of the Lego games in general, you'll enjoy this one pretty much by default. As far as the DC Comics subject matter I have praise and I have nitpicks...

    Praise: They fixed one my my biggest gripes with the other two Lego Batman games and that's the "suit swapping". In the older games, you'd have to swap Batman's outfit to get thru a mini-puzzle, but you could only do it at nearby changing stations, which got annoying. Now, they have the suits on a menu-wheel which you can swap out at anytime, as you unlock them. It's so much more convenient, and is a game-changer for me (I never did complete the other two Batman Lego games, partially because of this).

    Praise: There are a TON of characters to collect, which is always fun. They followed Marvel's lead (if only they could to that with their movies too) and have just about every main character you can think of!

    Praise: Not to spoil anything, but fans of Tron will be pleased with some of the puzzles.

    Nitpick: They use many of the mechanics from Marvel (probably can't be avoided) which is fine, but Alfred is the "Captain America" of this came using a serving tray!? That's just an insult to Cap, lol! Solomon Grundy plays the role of Hulk in this game with the innocent-dumbness - which anoys me, as Solomon Grundy is not supposed to be unintelligent (then again, with all the New 52 reboots, maybe I'm wrong... he was smart in Super Friends!). They also replace "Stan Lee in Peril" with "Adam West in Peril" lol.

    Nitpick: Why make Batman & Robin the central focus AGAIN? It's like DC has no faith in their own main brand or other characters. Just call is Lego DC Comics (just like "Lego Marvel Comics" did) and that way you can open up the story and levels to not be all about Batman again. Granted, the story progresses and you get more characters, but I rolled my eyes for the first hour of playing having to go thru all Batman stuff again with this new game.

    Nitpick: DLC on day one. Meh, unless we stop buying it, they'll keep doing this. Alternate outfits and extra levels which could easily fit on the disc. I get it, they do that to make money, but it would just be nice it DLC were actually add-ons that came later due to fans wanting more, and not preplanned as part of the money machine.

    Nitpick: Celebs. Conan O'Brien and Kevin Smith? Geoff Johns? Stan Lee in the Marvel game I get, as Stan's an icon OF Marvel, and has cameo'd in comics, cartoons, and the movies. Why do I get Geoff Johns instead of another DC character or alternate costume? Weird.

    LEGO Batman 3: Покидая Готэм - лучшая часть серии, которой всё ещё далеко до настоящего AAA…

    Разработчики попытались создать самую масштабную и эпичную игру во вселенной DC, напичкав её доверху контентом, обновив графику и пополнив ростер персонажей всеми, кем только можно было и нельзя. Это конечно хорошо, но если в игре будет много однотипных квестов ради растягивания хронометража, то это уже не плюс, а оправдание продажи сезонного пропуска, дескать мы итак саму игру нагрузили контентом и ничего не вырезали для допов, а наоборот сделали больше, так что сезонник уместен.
    В этом проблема - игра огромная и без сезонника, но даже с ним она так и осталась пустая. В надежде заполнить пустоту покупаешь сезонку, но получаешь тоже самое, просто покрашенное в другие цвета, ибо весь контент этой игры копипаста. Создайте вы хоть пять сезонников, растянув игру до 100+ часов, ничего не изменится - это будет всё та же пустота помноженная на 5, но ты ведь купил уже, поэтому надо пройти, чтобы закрыть гештагьт… а он, с.ка, не закрывается и ачивки выпадают тааак мееедлееенноооо… короче, сезонный пропуск вам нафиг не упал - самой игры более чем достаточно!

    Из плюсов у нас обновлённый графон и подтянутая физическая модель.
    Если к графену вопросов ноль - красочно, сочно, всё отражается и блестит, сглаживание на новом уровне, то к физону вопросов масса - все объекты на уровне разбиваются красиво и зрелищно, ложась под ноги персонажу и когда их мало, то можно красиво разбросать их по сторонам собственным весом по физике, но стоит разрушить что-то крупнее табуретки, то барахло под ногами будет размером до ушей, тем самым не давая вам пройти секунд пять пока не исчезнет. Автомобили ранее управлялись как картонные коробки и в рамках стиля этого было достаточно, но физика сделала их неуправляемыми, постоянно норовящими перевернуться :(

    Сюжет - он есть, он супергеройский и этого достаточно.
    Персонажи как всегда гипертрофированно харизматичны, например, Бэтмен говорит голосом в стиле «Где детонатор?!», как в фильмах Нолана и бесстрашный до мозга костей, а Робин наоборот максимально трусливый. Все постоянно падают и получают по кумполу аки Чарли Чаплин, а также шутят за 300, как будто делали игру для пятилетних детей. Я не против пошутить над серьёзными щами супергеройских фильмов, но в этот раз прямо как-то с перебором, порой доводя до фарса издёвки над персонажами.

    По итогу мы имеем добротную, в меру качественную игру, но только в рамках серии, в которой что-то подтянули, а что-то поломали. Она нормальная, не больше и не меньше, потому что пустая, не смотря на переизбыток контента и не вызывает эмоций :(

    5,5 из 10 - только по скидкам и ни в коем случае не берите сезонный пропуск, иначе будете умолять игру показать финальные титры!

There are three dlc packages on release day that should have been part of the game, this is a total rip off. The save system does not work, I don't know whether this is an xbox live issue or the game's fault but I have to unplug my console every time I play to sync up to my save file, infuriating! The game itself is very funny and well acted so here is where the 5 points come from. There are a few new ideas in this game that I am not crazy about too. This will be the last time I buy a lego game on release day, I will wait for a game of the year version, games are expensive enough without getting robbed for supporting a game, not a fair thing to do to loyal fans. The last few lego games have slowly eroded my love for lego games to the point where I an thinking about walking away forever and this is from someone who has played every single one. There are a few other issues with the game like the batcave computer does not work, not sure why this is happening. Overall a very disappointing game. Expand

A tel point que dès le premier niveau, on se retrouve bloqué puisqu'un script ne se déclenche pas, même en recommençant le niveau plusieurs fois.

    Je regarde attentivement un guide et constate que le script fonctionne mais pas chez moi : ceci est une machination qui me vise personnellement, un complot éhonté monté de toutes pièces, en l'occurrence un assemblage de légos particulièrement foireux dont les avatars numériques ont pété un plomb. Bref, un bug sûrement très rare et pas toujours reproductible, hélas.

    Cela dit, j'ai pu constater un autre défaut durant ce court laps de temps à refaire la même chose : la musique ! pourtant, il s'agit de la belle musique du premier Batmou mais le développeur s'est borné à en extraire quelques échantillons qui sont simplement répétés en boucles infinies : celles-ci finissent par bien vriller les nerfs.

    Dans ces conditions lamentables, on ne peut que sanctionner de manière draconienne un jeu aussi mal foutu et un tel foutage de gueule ; quelle honte !
