  • Conclusion: Concept: Take the popular LEGO formula from Star Wars, then add Batman Graphics: The best LEGO graphics to date, but how good can the visuals really get with lots of simple blocky shapes? Sound: Great music from the cartoons helps mask the generic action sound effects Playability: The definition of pick up and play. If you have trouble playing this game, you might be holding the wrong ?

Lego Batman: The Videogame (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
11 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Batman is the third franchise to undergo Lego-fication, and the first to do so with an original story. That right there leads into the first criticism of the game. As with Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Batman tells its story entirely by pantomime, without even any text bubbles to help you figure out what's going on.

  • Summary: Star Wars. Indiana Jones. Batman. Three spectacularly different licenses united by identical gameplay design. Based on Traveller's Tales' last three games, the universal formula for game creation reads as follows: Make Star Wars game. Remove Star Wars license. Replace with another popular license. Ship to retail. LEGO Batman is so similarly designed to the other games it even retains the film trilogy format ?

Lego Batman

Family Friendly Gaming
2 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Lego Batman on the Nintendo DS is a very difficult video game for me to review. To progress through the levels, the player builds switches out of Legos. To be able to find these hidden Legos the player must destroy all kinds of things in the environment. So on one hand the player has to destroy, and on the other create. This mixed message means Lego Batman is not a game that can be easily classified.

A fun -- albeit predictable -- cartoon adventure.

Common Sense Media
25 June 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is not based on the Dark Knight movie but rather the Batman TV show and comics. It's rated "E10+" for cartoon violence, but the action is quite tame, relatively speaking. The cartoon characters look like LEGO blocks, and when in combat, they can be damaged to the point that they break apart. But there is no blood or gore to worry about. Still, players punch, shoot, and use other weapons on each other.

LEGO Batman (Wii) Review

Vooks
27 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Lego versions of various popular movie franchises have proved to be popular and well received games over the last couple of years. First it was Star Wars, then it was the classic adventure series Indiana Jones. Now, its the caped-crime fighting adventures of Batman that have been immortalised in Lego. With numerous movies to draw inspiration from, not to mention a large selection of villains, Lego Batman certainly has enough material to create an exciting adventure.

19 November 2008
  • Excerpt: A few years ago in a galaxy far, far away a video game was released from Eidos with a simple concept. Take the Star Wars universe and turn it into LEGOs. The result was LEGO Star Wars, an action game with cute graphics, simple gameplay and appeal to gamers of all ages. Never to be one for letting something go when potential profits are on the line, the relatively newly formed Warner Bros. Interactive took control of their license and LEGO Batman was born.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Half Val Kilmer, Half Christian Bale, the formula is looking a tad trite and jaded. Too apathetic for many but fans and kids alike will still find its cute and simplistic ways endearing enough. The series is teetering now; Traveller's Tales have a decision to make: stick to counting their monies or push it out for the inevitable next venture. Our suggestion would be to go all out and deliver the sandbox Lego 'Allo Allo' that the world is waiting for.
