    OK. I'll start with the one and only bad remark I have about this game. They really missed the mark with the camera on this one. It's very jumpy and erratic in co-op and takes quite a bit of getting used to. They did include a very limited right stick camera control on this game, but it's usually dependent on how far away you are from your partner. The further away you are, the better the individual camera controls are. My son and I have been putting the hours in on this game since we picked it up on Tuesday, and it's a blast. The voice acting adds to the humor in a way that was missing when all that the characters would say were "mmmm", "aaaah", and "tee-hee-hee". The dialogue is obviously simple since the target audience is young children, but even as a 40 year old adult, I found it to be pretty humorous; especially the Batman to Superman animosity mixed with the Robin to Superman hero worship angle. The gameplay itself is pretty standard to Tt Lego games and is similar to the rest of the games. Levels seem to be a bit longer than usual which is good. The Gotham City open world is large and contains several side "missions" to collect bad guy characters and bricks, as well as follow ghost studs from story to story similar to Lego Harry Potter. You don't collect character tokens in this game, but get them through story mode and side fights similar to Lego Indiana Jones 2. Graphics are smooth and colorful. Cut-scenes are hilarious and well programmed. If it wasn't for the camera I would have given this game 5 stars. It's not a huge issue, but is a hindrance sometimes. We did find one area where the camera actually caused an enemy to be hidden by one of our characters during a flight sequence, so we were stuck for quite a few minutes while trying to figure out why the game wasn't progressing. Other than that, we have made it up to Story Level 11 and haven't found any bugs or problems so far. However, we haven't done any free-play yet.

    I am a serious gamer, so I hesitated to try out lego games, but they are so much fun, and a nice departure from the intensity of the games I usually play. I really like the fact that you can play back through, in free play mode, as different characters, after you finish the story line. Trying to locate some of the extras, etc., was a little hard to navigate, and would probably be frustrating for a younger player. The only other thing I would have like to have seen was more length to the game, like some of the other lego games have, especially in free play mode, it ended too soon.

    The first Lego Batman was by far my favorite of these games. Lego Batman 2 has taken the title. The game is easy to pick up once you get used to the controls. The story line plays really well and is better than most superhero movies, although a bit more serious in tone than other Lego adventures. The split screen can be annoying but I understand the necessity, considering the size of the world you can explore. The character roster is by far the best aspect, allowing you to have control of DC's most popular superheroes and villains.

    I bought this game to play with my 5 year old son (we had previously played Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga & The Adventures of Indiana Jones) & we have had a ton of fun with it. He enjoys the suits Batman & Robin wear to gain powers, as well as being Superman & Green Lantern (since they can fly). The story line is good, the graphics are on par with other Lego games, & the characters talk for the first time. We really enjoy the Lego games & this one does not disappoint.

    My son (5) loves it. he likes to play co-op, which I enjoy playing it with him as well. Made him very happy, so it made me happy. The only problem I see with it, it's that it has a glitch, it freezes. usually performing the same action. which it's in free mode, so it's not a big problem, but it is frustrating, we were able to get through it though, after a few (or more) times trying.

    The game is great. My son and I had a great time playing it. To fly around Gotham City as Superman was awesome. I like that we don't have to stick together during co-op play and the screen splits but sometimes hard to shoot things while screen is moving due to other players actions. We both loved the free play to wonder around Gotham. Can't wait for Lego Batman 3.

    First Lego game and I most say its amazing. The characters are great especially with the moving mouths and voice acting makes it so much better. Having all the villians in the game is great and the way batman and superman talk to each other is hilarious and how robin is makes it awesome.

    My son and I have been playing this game nonstop since we purchased it for him for Christmas. Some of the levels are confusing and I'll be honest, as an adult who doesn't "game" often, I have a webpage open that guides us along. When my son (5) is stuck, I can just check what he needs to do and help him along.
