When i started playing this game i thought it had no chance of being good compared with Batman Arkham City, but to be honest you cant really compare it. It is in my opinion a fun game that you could spend hours on, looking for mini kits, coins and new characters. It is like all other lego games it captures the lego world in great detail everything is lego houses, characters and vehicles. 

You start off outside as Batman, you go through level by level collecting coins, bricks and other collectables. every level is unique and challenging with the odd puzzle thrown in for good measure. The use of vehicles is overwhelming and the art on them is awkwardly good. 

Gameplay - When you start off you are batman and as the game plays through you get introduced to new characters like superman, bane, joker and even aquaman! Anyway what i really liked about it is the originality like batman is from gotham, and superman from metropolis. There is no made up places this where they are actually from in the world of science fiction. There are tricky spots at times trying to figure out challenges and you wil probably have to walk away from it at one time or another as it does get a bit frustrating. But when you overcome the challenges you are really happy for some strange reason there is a huge weight lifted and a big release of stress, after all it is Lego batman. You also get different types of suits for your characters like acrobat, Ice and hazard are the ones for Robin and Sensor, Electric and Power are for batman. There are even more vehicles than the first. Batman has numerous including Plane, Car and bike, even Robin does have a helicopter and bike.

Pure brilliance.
