Summary: I never bought this product, but it shows up as one I bought. We have enjoyed all the other lego games so imagine if you like them this one will be more of the same. The newer ones like DC heroes and Lord of the Rings were a great step forward. The Marvel heroes were too strange for us, but if you like bizarre it is lego bizarre to the extreme.
Summary: I like the game and it is Steam DRM which is a preference of mine. It is an online code for a game not a disc (expectedly) And being a download instead of a hard copy it makes sales easier. I like that ;) Really the only problem I have with this game is that it crashes often and doesn't save when it does. This problem might just be my computer as all LEGO games do this for me and also the free-to-play Super Crate Box(May be unrelated).
Summary: I really liked this game but the controls take some getting used to. If you are prone to headaches or seizures avoid this game, the menu options flash quickly. It's borderline irritating but other than that it's a good game as one would expect from a Lego game.
Summary: EDIT: After doing some research, I've found that it's possible to hook up an Xbox 360 controller to your pc for smoother game play. Unfortunately, I don't have one but if you do, your pc Lego game should play spectacularly. I've also read from many reviewers that the graphics on the pc are much more crisp than on the Xbox or Playstation versions (it also costs much less).
Summary: As luck would have it, I received a version with the dreaded 'run' error; sorry Talax Lives, they're still out there; SecuROM confirmed it was a bad disc; I'm currently working with the seller on a resolution; I bumped up the rating based on the fact that they are willing to help even though PC games are usually not returnable; still, buying videogames shouldn't be a gamble.
Summary: I bought this for my Godson. When he arrived the game did not work - there was a problem with the anti-pirate software. The family was able to contact the game maker and order a replacement but it was a bit of a hassle. I think he likes it though.
Recalled game but Amazon was good about the refund.

Summary: I've got to say that I was gutted when I finally got this game in the post from Amazon, loaded it and found it had the error that everyone else is talking about. I didn't know if it was just my copy, my PC or what the issue was - googled it and found that the game had been recalled. I emailed Amazon and they have been very efficient about giving me a refund - thank you.
