LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
2 September 2013
Summary: LEGO games. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're not going anywhere. There's always some pop culture property out there that looks so ridiculous yet so FUN when done up in LEGO blocks. For the most part, the core gameplay has stayed the same for many of these titles; there has been little innovation or change of the tried-and-true formula. Until now. Mind you, this is both a good thing and a bad thing.
Excerpt: What do you get when you combine Batman, Superman and LEGOs? A game that kids are sure to love. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is a follow-up to the popular kids action game LEGO Batman except this time it's packed with characters from the entire DC universe of heroes and villains.
Excerpt: For all those younger gamers out there, making references to “POW” and “ZOWEE” flashes when Batman hits an enemy will elicit nothing more than confused blinking. For more mature gamers, the comments will inspire nods of understanding and some context as to how long I’ve been a Batman fan. I’ve known about Batman since before Heath Ledger spoke his first word, so a game like LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes doesn’t enter my console lightly.

Conclusion: It's a treat to see super heroes nteract with one another. The script is great, the gameplay is strong, and it's a strong step in the right direction. If you enjoy previous LEGO titles, you'll be right at home here.
Excerpt: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes introduces new features to the long-running series of LEGO videogames and refines old ones, ultimately becoming one of the best LEGO games I have played so far, representing much more than a simple character palette swap that some have come to expect from the franchise.
Excerpt: When it comes to sequels, Batman seems to have a knack for outdoing himself. It happened with the 2008 film, The Dark Knight , as well as with last year’s smash hit videogame, Batman Arkham City , and believe it or not he’s done it again with Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes . Not only is it better than the original but it is also perhaps the best licensed Lego videogame to-date.
Excerpt: As The Joker might ask, ‘Do you like LEGOs, Batman? ‘Cause I think LEGOs are going to like you!’ If you do like both LEGOs and Batman, then LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes should catch your attention like a Bat-signal. This time, Lex Luthor and The Joker have teamed up and are running amok in Gotham City. The Dark Knight sure has his hands full, but, fortunately, he has his pals in the Justice League to give him a hand.
Pros: Sense of humor, Challenging and fun puzzles, Voice acting
Cons: The camera, The AI getting in the way, Trying to get Superman to fly where you want him to
