Those who found themselves hooked by the quirky Lego Star Wars Trilogy should definitely check out the new Batman addition which is priced just £7.99 from Gameplay.com. This is a great reduction considering the game is £16.89 on Amazon (with many gamers considering themselves lucky to get hold of a copy for £15!)
Although some might find the whole Lego game series slightly mystifying, by all accounts they are surprising great fun. Lego Batman attracted very favourable reviews from IGN and Gamespot who praised the game for the way it preserved the darker elements of the comic books while still delivering a fresh and dynamic new storyline.
In it, the player must guide Batman and Robin as they go head – to – head with some of Gotham’s deadliest villains who have broken out off Arkham Asylum. These include the Penguin, Joker, Catwoman, Two Face and Poison Ivy – all of whom come complete with their own Lego style make over.
However one of the games best features is that the player has the opportunity to step into the role of Batman’s formidable foes and be the ones to wreak all the havoc! All of this combined with some great vehicles, gadgets and a sharp sense of wit, means Lego Batman will enthral all age groups from parents right down to their pre-school children.
