Played non-stop Lego Batman with the kids this weekend, clearing all 15 of the Batman/Robin stages and headed into the 15 villian levels as well. The game is totally fun – while not as compelling as Lego Star Wars (A-, review here) and better than the still solid Lego Indiana Jones (B). It relies more on puzzles and suits rather than the diverse cast of the Lego Star Wars games, but once you get the hang on them they add some fun new twists to the established formula. Lego Batman has learned from the previous games and brings all of the good from the previous titles to the forray. My only disconnect was to the source material – because I know Star Wars and Indy far better than The Dark Knight.
If you’ve liked the Lego games up to this point, you’ll dig Lego Batman on Xbox 360. B+
