Well me and the kids usually like to play these but this time it fell alittle short. We enjoyed it but got bored fast with this lego game. I think its bc it took so long to unlock characters and than the open world is just horrible you dont know where you are going half the time than you get somewhere and the guy isnt there? My son gave up after a week he said it doesnt feel like a lego game. Hes only 10 for him to say that shocked me.

Lego Batman 2 was a really good game. It was very entertaining, slightly challenging and as always with Lego video games, humorous, but we couldn't even finish the game. The only problems we found were that the game kept freezing over and over, that's why we couldn't finish it. If you could get around it though, it's worth renting, otherwise, not so much.
Some of the Lego titles have been a bit too advanced for my 4 yr old to keep up with my 7 yr old, including the first Lego Batman. However, they have a lot more freedom in Lego Batman 2.
The open city (instead of being restricted to freeplay, the headquarters or mission areas) makes it much easier for my kids to jump in and play together.
They don't have to stay together once in the city and if one needs help, the other can drop out and come back in next to the player that needs help. Or, they have the option to let 1 player and the CPU character complete a difficult part of a mission and join up when things are easier.
The best part for both ages is the super heros available in this version. With a little help, they were able to learn how to unlock and buy heroes like Superman, Green Lantern, Flash and more...
