Batman dishes out justice to those deemed evil although he's not morally perfect himself,so you wouldn't think he'd be the best choice for the switch over to the Lego universe but Surprisingly, Lego Batman holds up quite well in a family-friendly way.
The best thing about Lego Batman is that the script is not tied into any comic book or movie storyline. The developer, Traveller's Tales, created there own concept for this game in which all the villains have broken out of Arkham asylum at the same time and are now roaming the streets of Gotham city concocting acts of super-villainy to unleash against the people of Gotham.
Its a ridiculously simple storyline, but thats good because It leads to Lego Batman's best mechanic, theres a huge variety of characters is available to use, and this game will stretch beyond household names like the Penguin and The Joker and allow you to experience fighting and playing as lesser known villains such as Hush, Killer Croc and The Mad Hatter. What sets this title apart from the others in the Lego series is that the game features two interlocked storylines.
While you can foil crime with Batman and Robin, you can then go back and relive the episode through the villains perspective, letting you control a huge array of baddies, each with their own unique powers. From the penguins penguin bomb to scarecrows scare gas, each bad guy is as fun to command as batman and robin, and you'll likely find yourself loving the villains more than the heros.
It's not that Batman and Robin are lazy though, but they have to solve problems in a different way. While the baddies may be able to get across an acid lake simply by walking across it, the hero's have no superpowers of their own, so they must rely on suits to get the job done. Batman may get around shiny objects by using his demolition suit to blow open a new path, or Robin could use his magnetic suit to climb a metal wall in order to flip a previously unreachable switch. Both have a variety of suits to choose from in order to get the job done, and you're always given the right set of tools in order to accomplish any task. This is an all round family game however it does have one main problem which is the camera. All in all 4/5 because of the pesky camera
