Summary: This game is great except for the fact that after you finish a level you are required to search endlessly for the entrances to the next levels. This wastes so much time. I much preferred the first game, where you were just in the Batcave and you could easily move from one to the next. There was one particular level (I don't remember which) that I just couldn't find. I had to quit playing and just leave it for another day.
Summary: We got this game for our 4 yr old son. He loves Batman 1 so we figures Batman 2 would be a good one to get. Wow, were we wrong! Batman 2 is much harder then the first one. There is not much explanation as to where you are and what you are suppose to do. It is also much darker then the first game, much to our disappointment. The camera angles make it difficult to see what you are doing and game play seems choppy at times.
Summary: To begin, I have to say that I was really looking forward to this game. I love the Lego series, and we've gotten multiple play out of every version we've ever purchased. This one, however, has some problems. I'm not saying don't buy it. The storylines, the feature additions, and the concept of it are wonderful. I even like the voices added instead of just the usual Lego grunts.
Summary: I bought the LEGO Batman 2 for my 6-year old son. He has the first LEGO Batman game and loved it. The graphics on the sequel game is too jarring, and the split screen on two player makes it difficult to play. The first batman game is definitely the better pick.
A little difficult for a five year old (and a thirtysomething dad)

Summary: My son can dominate on Lego Star Wars Complete Saga and can play Lego Indiana Jones by himself, but I guess Batman 2 is a bit too open-ended. Solving puzzles and levels is not very obvious and I have gotten stuck without a clue several times playing it. The gameplay itself is very fun, but when you can't figure out what to do next the game gets put away for a while.
Nice improvement over the original Lego Batman, but buggy

Summary: This seems to fit into a third generation of Lego games for the Wii. The first generation had the stories we're all familiar with. The second, to me, are the ones that split screen so two players can operate more independently. I'd say this is a third generation in that it also incorporates a free-form world that you can explore. This is a significant improvement, but it brings its own challenges.
