Excerpt: Most games aimed towards children are either hastily put together, childish or just plain stupid. With the LEGO series though, you could almost smell the quality and time they put into the games.
Excerpt: First it was Star Wars, then Indiana Jones. Now it's Batman, the caped crusader himself, who's been given the Traveller's Tales LEGO treatment. Great! Who doesn't like Batman these days, or the idea of running around a LEGO-fied Gotham City as a cute LEGO Batman, and LEGO Joker, and LEGO everyone...
Conclusion: Whilst it would be nice to see Traveller's Tales move to an upgraded engine at some point in the future, LEGO Batman confirms that we can stomach at least another couple of titles before the shift in technology.
Excerpt: To be perfectly honest, I am more of a Star Wars or Indiana Smith fan then I ever was a Batman fan. Don't get me wrong, I go see the movies, I just don't watch the cartoons or read the comic books any more. So I am by no means an authority on all things Batman.
Summary: In LEGO Batman gamers will have the ability to roam the streets of LEGO Gotham City as Batman or Robin, and even take control of the villains while manipulating gadgets and building/operating vehicles in co-op gameplay.
Excerpt: So, I got this hunch that this whole LEGO game thing might just catch on and sell a few games with this release. Ok, so maybe it’s more than a hunch.

Conclusion: What makes LEGO Batman different from other than previous LEGO games is that Traveller’s Tales have come up with an original story instead of one which was based on previous canon such as the Star Wars Trilogy.
Pros: Almost every major Batman character represented, Lots or replayabilty, Plenty of unlockables, Danny Elffman soundtrack, Kid friendly
Cons: Lack of online mode, Not much innovation from previous LEGO videogames
Summary: Gotham city is being torn down brick by brick and it's up to Batman with a trusty sidekick (eww Robin) to save the day. Lego Batman on the PS3 (or any format) proves that there's life in the old Lego brick franchise yet!
