Lego batman two is the best superhero game EVER (In my opinion) It beats its predecessors by a long shot offering an open world experience that has many hours of gameplay for exploring and collecting. 500 square miles!!! AND THEY TALK!!! WONDERFULL VOICE ACTING! Lego batman two,first of all. looks amazing. The graphics and gameplay look better than I expected. The combat has evolved and on some levels a very cinematic experience. unlike other lego games the puzzles are a bit less of a hairpulling experience. but they are still head scratchers. and the new costumes are really just remakes of the old. the missions do look a lot like the first. My brother didnt know I bought the game and he thought I was playing the first ( I was playing a level with just batman and robin- Im not saying they're the same, just that the missions are similar) But after a minute or so he realized it was a new batman. My verdict is that this game is worth to buy. I only buy large games that have replay value like skyrim, saints row, little big planet, ect. besides the sometimes annoying puzzles, oh and the really bad map system it is near perfect, for a lego game of course.

What else can i say about this game other than is fantastic. Lego games never cease to amaze me by constantly evoling with each new game.
The graphics are great, the gameplay is smooth and the way the game flows is awesome. I love how you a save in the middle of a mission instead of having to complete the whole thing before saving.
I will buy it because i buy all of the Lego games. If you liked the other batman lego game, your gonna fall in love with this one as well.

If you remember playing with Legos, either in the past 5 minutes, or sometime since you were 5, this game is for you. If you dressed up in your super hero underoos, running through the house, being your favorite super hero, this game is for you. If you want Grand Theft Auto, but with the purity of children's story telling, this game is for you. If you want a game where your significant other (who doesn't play games) will actually want to join in and play alongside you, this game is for you.

Even though this game focuses on Batman, it might be better thought of as a side-project of the Justice League of America, focusing on Batman. This becomes the way the game ends up in the final few chapters, but even from the early parts of the game, it's obvious of the play that Superman has with Batman. Batman doesn't like Superman, Robin does. Superman just wants to be your friend. That dynamic works so well, since you'll want to play as both Batman & Superman (and you will). The humor with their interactions kept me laughing all the way through. The game play kept me coming back for more.

If you've played any of the Lego games, you know that there are some annoyances, but this one seems to be the one with the least amount of issues. A handful of puzzles seemed to make no sense, or had solutions in places I spent too much time on for a "kid's game" but patience always came through with experimentation. The only thing that I couldn't get over in the end was the flying (vehicle and some character) mechanics. In the levels, 1 mechanic worked relatively good for me. Yet, in the open world, that mechanic shifted, which I found jarring. To make matters worse, I could not stand the flying mechanic in the open world, even though flying with Superman was the most fun I had in this game. It wasn't enough to ruin the game, but it was enough to remind me that too much of a bad mechanic is the same reason my Wii gathers dust (and why this is only a great rental).
