a great game

“Lego Batman: The Videogame” is an action adventure game, released in 2008. You get to play as Batman, set within a fictional Lego world. This game is similar to the earlier Lego videogames, such as Star Wars. Yet, this game is the first in the Lego series to have an original story. This game was highly successful, and so far there have been two sequels – and several animated Lego movies – based on Batman. This game is intended to be child-friendly, and yet is also a great deal of fun for adults.
You can choose to play as one of many characters – all from the Batman universe – and control each character from a third-person perspective. Primarily, you’re running around and fighting enemies. There are also lots of puzzles to solve. The game is set in Gotham City, and there are thirty levels (15 for the heroes, 15 for the villains). The story concerns Batman and Robin trying to find and capture the villains – Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, and so many more – who have recently escaped from Arkham Asylum, and who are intent on causing mischievous mayhem. In addition to story mode, you can choose to ‘free play’ the game – simply having fun with the characters.
The graphics are great – and it does look just like Lego has come to life! The soundtrack is fantastic – as it makes use of Danny Elfman’s music from the 1989 “Batman” film. Overall, there’s a dark feel to this game, but it’s done in a comedic and entertaining manner.
If you’re a fan of either Batman and/or Lego games, I thoroughly recommend this. I’ve played through it a couple of times, as have my young nephews – and there’s plenty of fun to be had.
