As Lego games usually are. I enjoyed the wide open range of exploring the whole city of Gotham. But as usually these games have aggravating glitches. Certain vehicles I couldn't unlock b/c they disappeared off the map, or mini kits I couldn't find b/c a certain animation wouldn't work.

the gme was as expected with the collection of studs and building..but its a lego game what else would you expect. the game froze after i beat the joker bot the second time. cleaning the disc was point less. but all in all it was lost of fun.
I just finished playing this game, and, if your a LEGO game fan, this one will be addictive just like the rest. BUT, be ready for some major changes, some good, some not so good. One of the first major changes you'll notice, is that they actually TALK. The voice acting is actually pretty good, which it should be since the actors doing the voiceovers, have voiced these characters in past cartoons and well known games.
The not do good change, in my opinion, the new map. They have completely redesigned the way you access missions, and many other things, and not once did they bother to mention any of it in game. It took me nearly a week to understand what was going on with the map, what each of the icons were, and I probably still don't know everything about it. That is the big flaw in this game, because every previous LEGO game, you understood what everything was, simply by seeing it. Not so in this game.
The graphics are very nice. The cutscenes are, well, probably prettier than you would expect from a Lego game.
Gameplay is, well, probably the main thing that pulls LEGO fans to these games. Break everything, run in circles picking up coins/studs. Yes it can get repetitive, but to those of us who are fans, we expect that repetetiveness.
All in all this was a fun play. If your a fan of the LEGO games, give this one a rent. Maybe you'll understand the layout better than me, and have more fun with it. I had to give this one a 7 because the map was very confusing to begin with, and there was never any explanation about it. Sorry Travelers Tales, don't expect us to instinctively understand a layout we have never seen before.
