    Lego Batman

    Whyse

    Lego Batman, just like all of the other Lego games is pretty easy and is a great game for most ages. Kids will enjoy the fact that you don’t have “lives” and you can pretty much die over and over again until the level is over. However, this does make the game rather easy to play through. Older players will like it because of its tongue in cheek humor. Going through the game there are a lot of unlockables as you play through the game. Also, a lot of levels to go through, you will play each of the different levels 2 times (at least), once as the Hero and once as the Villains. This aspect of the game gives a unique feel to the game. The fighting engine is also a lot of fun and includes using a baterang and you can also change your costume to get through different portions of the game. Also, this game can be played with 2 players on the same Xbox 360 so it adds a little more fun playing with a friend. I highly recommend this game to everyone!

    My son loves legos and batman so he loves to play this game. There's some critical thinking involved where you have to think, okay, if I spin this, it makes that anchor move to the left to pick up my buddy (Robin or Batman, depending on which character you are and which is your sidekick since both are in the game and you can switch roles while in play). Then spin it the other way to get the anchor to come back the other way. You use Batman for certain actions then switch roles to Robin to use other actions. Each have their specialties. You just need to know which to use for what and try each out.

    I played this game with my 6 year old cousin on his Xbox 360. I was really blown away by how fun it was! This game is much better than the Lego Star Wars games, mainly because this one has many different levels and bosses, not to mention the storyline! The only negative thing that I could pick out about this game that the normal levels are a little too easy for players over the age of about 12 or 13. The boss levels are different. They are true challenges, yet smaller kids can still beat them! This game is great for all fans of Batman, and Legos!

    I had no intention of buying a video game for my son. I was at Best Buy to get something else and my son saw this game on their game tv. He picked up the controller and out of nowhere just started playing. I couldn't believe how he knew how to do it. So, as you can imagine, there was no way that I was going to be able to get out of that store without buying this game. So, here we are. He only gets to play it as a, "reward," every once in awhile. But the game gets an A++ for how happy it makes my son.

    This is a great game for any age. You will have a fun time playing it. I liked playing as the villians more then I did with Batman and Robin. The game is sort of short and easy. I did not like that you can not play co-op on Xbox Live. Sometimes you can destroy things that are behind walls and I thought that took me out of the game plus you miss out on the Lego points. Still a fun game that everyone should at least try. Save the Lego World one Lego piece at a time.

    LEGO Batman is very similiar in style and play as both LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Indiana Jones games. Batman & Robin need to work together to find and unlock different clues to move onto new levels. It's both fun and challenging (and sometimes frustrating!!). It's a good game that I can play with my kids and have just as much fun myself as they do.

    Weakest Lego game in a while

    After the great Lego Indy game, we were really looking forward to this one and were unfortunately very disappointed. The collision detection seems to be very spotty in places and the game is much more tedious than fun. Also, the game visually is much darker than Star Wars or Indy. Very unfortunate. Hopefully the next LEGO game will put the series back on track.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Best Lego Game so far

    Im a big fan of the Lego series. I will have to say Batman is the best out of the 3. Star Wars is very close. Indy was to short, but still fun. The best thing about batman is the many characters you can be, and also playing as the villians. I would definitly recommend this to anyone these are awesome games and i look forward to many more Lego games.
