OK so as a 40 year old man who has grown up with computer games as a child and a love of Batman from the 1960's series I have to confess I loved this game and is the only game in donkeys years that I have been bothered/interested/able enough to complete. Ok I really don't play many of these games but on a recommendation brought the Indiana Jones games and enjoyed that, the thing with these Lego games are that they are great fun and not too frustrating, one of those games you can pick up and play for half an hour and return to when you have more time. Batman 2 has improved on the first game with the whole massive Gotham City to explore which takes a bit of getting used to but once you realize you have 250 gold bricks to collect and you need to collect every canister from each mission and the citizens in peril I enjoyed flying as Superman over Gotham searching for gold bricks to the Superman theme tune. Once you collect the red bricks the games becomes quite simple to complete but is still fun collecting all the extra characters although the bonus mission was a pain for 1 gold brick.
This time round the characters speak and the graphics again seem sharper than before, smashing lego bits to pieces solving puzzles and being all these Super Heroes and baddies, what's not to enjoy.
I spent many hours having fun completing this game and have no moved on to Lord of The Rings.
