I am completely biased about the Lego gaming franchise, having yet to find one that I did not find totally entertaining and Batman 2 is no exception. The story line is very well done, it seemed to flow as a good comic book. The graphics, video and overall game movement are superb. For the novice, the initial game hints are sufficient to quicken the learning curve. An inherent trait in Lego video games, and Batman 2 effectively provides, is the ability, no not ability, actually the need/desire to replay every level in the "free game" mode to reveal new challenges and find new secrets which can only be discovered with certain characters. Of course finding and unlocking these characters is a primary challenge in itself. The Batman 2 game is obviously very family friendly and although it is simple enough for the young gamer, it is definitely sufficiently sophisticated to provide older and more experienced players hours of challenging fun. As a grandparent, this is another game I would suggest having in your collection to enjoy playing with a grandchild or relaxing while two grandchildren entertain themselves.
