    Synopsis


    Evil forces move stealthily in the dark of the night, and only the Caped Crusader rises against them. But when the maniacal Brainiac unleashes the power of the Lantern Rings on Gotham and other cities all around the world — and into outer space — Batman can't save the day alone. It will take the force of the world's greatest super heroes combined with the might of the villains who battle them every day to keep this evil madman from shrinking every city in his path. Will Brainiac be able to complete his horrible collection of miniaturized cities? Or can Batman and a cast of extraordinary characters put an end to his plans once and for all?

    Return for even more action-packed fun in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, an all-new adventure that pits Batman and the worlds' greatest heroes and bad guys against the cunning of Brainiac and his powerful Lantern Rings. Blast off for battle in outer space as you visit the mysterious Lantern worlds, including Zamaron and Odym. Team up with your favorite DC Comics heroes and villains as you unlock characters, each with exciting powers and abilities, including members of the Justice League and the giant-size BIG LEGO characters, such as Solomon Grundy, Cyborg and more. Immerse yourself in a fascinating challenge as you contend with Brainiac's mind-control powers, clever disguises and the threat of the Lantern Rings on a journey that will test your strength and wits. Access the Bat Computer to try your hand at Batman's training modules and compete in thrilling challenges, including battle arenas, races and detective mazes. Spin the Bat-Tastic Gadget Wheel to upgrade characters' suits and abilities with just the touch of a button. Visit the Hall of Justice, descend to the Batcave, tour the Justice League Watchtower and access shops, trophy rooms and customizers that allow you to personalize your hero and vehicle. Can you unite friends and foes to save our world — and others — from a terrible, tiny fate?

      Kids love it, despite the bugs.

      We've purchased almost every Lego game to come to PS3 and now PS4 for the past five years or so, mostly for visiting kids, but they're typically fun for adults too, even if about the only change from one game to the next is the theme. They're also very good learning games for problem solving development, especially with all the bonus achievements they offer, which are usually far more extensive or time consuming to complete than the game itself. That said, overall, I've been disappointed in the Lego games on PS4 so far. The graphics look like PS3 graphics, but more stable, implying that even on PS3 they were probably rendered at 1080p and just poorly downconverted, introducing lots of artifacts in the process. But what's more disappointing is that the gameplay itself is less stable. Lego has always had it's issues with bugs in split-screen coop, but every PS4 Lego game we've played has had a fair share in single-player too, with Batman 3 being the worst to date. It's almost as if they're still building the games based on PS3 tech, as outside of smoother graphics, none of the games we've played so far try to take advantage of any of the things next gen can do, other than more privacy invasion, as with the new gen, even single player virtually requires an internet connection. The bugs are nothing game crippling. But parents should be prepared to be called in to get characters unstuck from areas of the game they aren't supposed to be able to access, but somehow do quite frequently, or when your PS4 blue screens, asking you to send Sony an error report, before you have to restart your game at the beginning of the level you were last on. Of the 30 to 50 PS4 games we've played, this one has so far been the buggiest by far. I would recommend, as younger kids still love the game (my 13 year old nephew has lost all interest in lego, but my 5 year old nephew can't get enough of it and my 8 year old niece likes it too, as long as she can choose her character), but I'd only recommend it with the above qualifying reservations, as ultimately, it's felt like the game developer has been resting on it's laurels with the Lego franchise for some time now. If they don't spark some sense of ambition soon, the franchise will likely dwindle, as so far, this gen, feels like we're still playing PS3.

      PS4 version: Great family game, the DC counterpart to LEGO Marver Superheroes. Has a great roster of characters, a genuine sense of humor, based on Batman's over-the-top personality interacting with the others. Co-op is really a lot of fun (though by this date, one could expect 3 player co-op or any online play to be included by the developer, but alas, nothing). Also as expected is the by now traditional LEGO approach: break stuff, combine abilities from partners or change suits, unlock free play, repeat to fully complete. Nothing groundbreaking, as the puzzles are not hard, but still great fun. Really unique scenarios and a very worthy successor of the great Batman 2. You will replay this a lot, if you want to obtain all the hidden items

      As someone who likes video games but isn't a "gamer", I think this game's pretty great. The 1st Lego Batman game set the bar pretty high as far as just being a really fun game to play pretty much anytime. While all the Lego games I've played are fun, I thought Lego Batman 2 was a bit of a let down. In between missions was hard to navigate. With this one, they're back to something a little more simplistic. Just because you CAN make a game more intricate, doesn't mean you should. I feel like, though it's still not as good as the first one, it's on the right track. This reminds me, I need to get back to playing this game.

      Another Great Lego Batman Game

      Lego Batman 3 is a great continuation from Lego Batman 2. There are tons of characters and things to do. Like all Lego games, it does get very repetitive, but it is still worth playing through. I found that there is not as much freedom in this game compared to Lego Batman 2. There a some different environments to go to like the JLA Space Station and the Batcave, even the Hall of Doom. Each area is relatively small. There is a great tie in with Batman '66. DLC is alright. You get to play a single level from different DC titles. I was expecting more than a level, especially with the Dark Knight Trilogy pack. Still worth it though.

      Lego nails it once again with this third sequel to it's Batman series of games! This game features a vast array of playable characters including most of my favorite DC Comics villains and heroes. As usual the gameplay is exciting and quirky with tons of content, missions, locales, and things to do and look for. I have yet to be disappointed by a Lego Batman title and this newest game is no exception. If you are a Lego game fan you owe it to yourself to pick this one up, especially now that it's at a discounted price.

      The main "story" is fairly short... I beat in in 2 days with my 6 year old nephew (the main person I bought it for). I had previous played LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, and the content it contained seem to be much more in depth with additional side missions and quests that can be played. Unless I am missing something, once you complete the story mode, the only thing left to do is beat it again. I bought it for $20 and I am glad I did not pay any more.

      Fun, But Not As Strong As Other Lego Games

      Lego Batman 3 has the gameplay and humor from past Lego games. There is a large cast of over 100 characters. After you beat the main game, you have access to these small hub worlds filled with challenges, gold bricks, races, missions, etc. These worlds don't feel like a true open world sandbox which is this game is sorely lacking compared to other games like Lego Marvel Superheroes. If you like Lego, Batman, DC, and aren't expecting a huge sandbox hub, then you will like this game.

      After getting my Playstation 4 I was trying to find games that would be kid friendly. Enter Lego Batman 3. The controls are easy to use, the game play finds a nice balance between simple yet challenging objectives, and the characters are easily recognizable. One thing I love is that instead of a character "dying," they simply break apart into a stack of Lego pieces. This game is greatly enjoyed by my kids under 10, but fun enough for me to play in my own time as well.
