One step forward but a couple steps back.cpiane | June 3, 2015 | See all cpiane's reviews »
The first speaking Lego game has arrived! Pigs are now flying. In all honesty the addition of voices in these Lego games are a welcome addition. I like how the developers tried to tell another unique Batman story with their Lego medium, but I think it fell short a brick or two. I would have enjoyed it a lot better if it was based off of the Tim Burton movies (like the first one did...sort of) or if they waited to do one off of the Christopher Nolan movies, but alas we are left with this. Not a bad story by any means, but by far the worst thing about this game is the story. They shove the Justice League down our throats in a Batman title, and they bring back some of the same problems that plagued its predecessor. For example the suit changes are back, and annoying as ever. Luckily Lego Batman 3 fixed the suit change issue so we can do it whenever, but it remains a problem here. The only bright light I see in this game is just free roaming in the entirety of Gotham City. There are multiple characters to pick from which is nice, but as mentioned earlier I would prefer to have Batman characters stay in a Batman game and perhaps do a separate Justice League Lego game to include the other characters, because the story suffered because of it. Anyways, the gameplay remains the same since the first Lego Star Wars. You smash stuff, you collect stuff, you earn stuff. Rinse and repeat. Not the best Lego game, but nowhere near the worst. If you are a huge Batman fan like I am, you will buy this game because of...well Batman, that's why!
