There is no doubt that this is a great family game. There are very few about today that are pitched at a level that all the family can enjoy with no risk of offending anyone, although it must be said that Cat Woman does look sexy in Lego as well! The formula works and works well in Lego Batman. We highly recommend this game.

My three favorite things as a child were Legos, Batman, and Video Games. Taking that bias into account and especially when compared to other Batman games, Lego Batman is far and away one of the best Batman titles and yet another perfect family game for the series. Though the gameplay is familiar, this is a case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. I’m sure at some point, gamers will get tired of the formula, but that hasn’t happened yet. With a unique plot, great characters, and gameplay that’s fun for both kids and adults, Lego Batman continues the sheer fun of the series and is a great game on all available platforms.

While Batman has always had a darker vibe that many comic book characters, it's hard to view this as somehow darker in mood and tone than other Lego games since they share so many similarities. The storyline follows the exploits of the pantheon of Batman villains after their escape from Arkham Asylum and the subsequent mayhem that ensues, but you don't need to be familiar with any of that to sit down and play along with your kids.

Obwohl die Entwickler clever genug waren, im Vergleich zu den Vorgängern einige sinnvolle Verbesserungen einzubauen, spielt sich der dunkle Rächer genau wie Dr. Jones, der sich genau wie die Herren Jedi spielte. Das macht das Spiel per se nicht schlechter, aber Batman fühlt sich mittlerweile dezent abgenutzt an - mal ganz davon abgesehen, dass der Humorgrad etwa zwei Etagen unter den Vorgängern liegt und sich hauptsächlich darauf beschränkt, Robin als Schwachkopf zu präsentieren. Die Story hat weniger Gehalt als gewohnt, der famose Koop-Modus beschränkt sich wieder mal auf lokale Balgereien - Lego Batman kann von Glück reden, dass das unverwüstliche Spielprinzip nach wie vor tierisch viel Spaß macht, dass sowohl Einsteiger als auch Profis gefordert werden, dass es massig freispielbares Material aufzustöbern gilt und dass die Präsentation so liebevoll-durchgeknallt wie eh und je ist. Aber ganz ehrlich, Leute - langsam solltet ihr euch was Neues einfallen lassen.

LEGO Batman is good fun, but it's really just the same thing we've seen before. I don't think the LEGO formula needs much of a change, but certainly the common issues with the series should no longer exist. If you're looking to have a laugh with a buddy or you want something kid-friendly, this is your game.

Traveller's Tales et LucasArt avaient déjà tapé fort avec leurs précédents essais, mais ce Lego Batman est une véritable réussite. Les problèmes de maniabilité des autres épisodes se font ici beaucoup plus discrets. Et n'oubliez pas : si le jeu est sympathique en solo, il se transforme en vrai délice quand on le découvre à deux.

Anyone searching for the ultimate co-op experience on the Wii should look no further than LEGO Batman. Solo players will find a lot to like as well, even if the game does shine its brightest with two players. Despite some frustrating flaws, LEGO Batman is a fun and often clever experience with an absolutely massive amount of extra content. So grab a friend, get suited up, and clean the mean streets of Gotham... brick by brick.
Although there isn’t a lot that’s new in LEGO Batman, fans will not be disappointed. The title retains the standard LEGO gameplay, has a wonderful cast of characters, and offers players tons of replay value.
Game Shark (Oct 13, 2008)
Annoyances aside, LEGO Batman is arguably the best of the LEGO games. It’s certainly not revolutionary, but it represents a very smart, very fun evolution on a proven formula. Plus, you get to kick the Riddler’s butt and make out with a purring Catwoman – what more do you want out of a Batman game?
The charm of LEGO blocks is exploring your creativity and building new things, so Traveler’s Tales’ habit of sticking to one formula stands in stark contrast to the entire LEGO philosophy. We’ve had fun with this series, but it’s time to dump the franchise out on the floor and start piecing it back into something new.
From The Joker to Clayface, there isn’t a character in this game that isn’t fun to play. While you will see some Bat-related gameplay, such as a snazzy Batarang targeting system, most of the new mechanics revolve around different costumes for Batman and Robin. These suit-based moves dish out gameplay variety, but again, don’t hold true to the license (unless I missed the issue where Robin has a vacuum cleaner). No matter how you cut it, LEGO Batman is a solid game, even if it is just more of the same LEGO experience.
UOL Jogos (Sep 30, 2008)
"LEGO Batman: The Videogame" é um típico jogo da série LEGO, com uma mistura divertida de pancadaria, plataforma, humor e puzzles. Definitivamente a espetacular galeria de personagens prende a atenção, tornando-o, em uma primeira impressão, simplesmente irresistível. Mas ao reparar que os velhos problemas da franquia permanecem, sem nenhuma novidade realmente marcante adicionada, tudo acaba ficando com um leve cheiro de mofo, que começa a se tornar preocupante.

Despite its many faults, LEGO Batman can be a fun experience albeit a repetitive and frustrating one. As a big fan of Batman, I heartily recommend it to any fan of the Caped Crusader. However, non-fans will want to avoid it entirely since enjoyment is derived almost entirely from its nostalgia factor.
Gamer 2.0 (Oct 03, 2008)
Perhaps it is time that Traveler’s Tales mellows down a bit and tries to make the next Lego game a bit more polished then this travesty. The game actually feels more broken then the previous games, despite coming out later, and the problems in the game were some that started back when the first Lego Star Wars game came out. Take away a solid online component and you are left with a shell of what the series was known for: fun and entertainment. The subject matter was perfect for the Lego makeover, but the structure itself is what needs a complete overhaul.
Gamekult (Oct 09, 2008)
Le jeu en coop reste d'ailleurs la meilleure façon de traverser le jeu, en sachant que celui-ci n'a une fois de plus pas coché la case "en ligne", alors que l'option était possible dans LEGO Star Wars. Heureusement, le contenu du soft est identique sur Wii, PS3 et Xbox 360, seule la réalisation étant évidemment un peu moins fine sur la console de Nintendo. Un jeu honnête mais sans plus, au final.
Gamestyle (Oct 29, 2008)
Ultimately you cannot blame Traveller’s Tales too much for playing it safe with LEGO Batman and following their successful blueprint for retail success once again. Clearly Batman will be popular and another year will go by and fans of the LEGO series will have another title to enjoy. For any adult it represents a safe option that keeps your child amused for hours on end, and to some that will be a miraculous invention.
