Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes – Review (PS3, 360)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: LEGO sure has come a long way since I played with it. Back then it mainly consisted of white bricks with a few primary colours chucked in for variety. Making stuff or just watching your kid sister eat it brought endless hours of pleasure.
Excerpt: I love LEGO games and I’m not afraid to admit it! Under the cutesy veneer, simple gameplay meets surprisingly deep level design with clever puzzles and tons of collectibles to find and unlock.
Excerpt: LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is very much a sequel, not just to LEGO Batman but the entire LEGO series of games. It expands on the original and adds new elements, but at its heart it's very much a LEGO game.

Excerpt: Back in 2008, when I played the original Lego Batman, I was convinced the series was going to die. Maybe not immediately, as even some of the series most undeserving of life will flounder a bit before dying, but I was resolute on my stance: this series was going to die a slow, painful death.
Pros: Much improved over the last title, open world to explore, original story
Cons: Still very much like the last title, bad vehicle and flight controls, random glitches
Excerpt: For the last time, guys, LEGO games aren't just for kids . Granted, that isn't an argument I'd pitch to my friends down the pub as I learn the new (supposedly improved) England squad to keep up with the lads - where did David Seaman go? - but it's an argument I'd make proudly anywhere else.
Summary: Unfortunately, the improvements to " Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes " are mostly cosmetic. Another attempt at freshening the eons-old engine, a larger hub-world than ever, and voice acting. Somehow, this seems to have fooled many of the press into thinking ‘BEZZT LEGOZ GAME EVAR!’ It’s not.
Conclusion: ! The gameplay here will be familiar to anyone who had the good fortune to play the first LEGO-branded Batman game. You can expect waves of enemies, a slew of destructible items scattered throughout the environment, and a ridiculous number of collectables to... well, collect.
Excerpt: My two favourite things as a child outside of video games were Lego and Batman. So when I see games like Lego Batman 2: DC superheroes my inner child wants nothing more than to play the game. So it was only felt right for me to write down my feelings.
Pros: Great variation, Looks Amazing, All the Superheroes!
