If you read my twitter feed, see my pictures on Instagram or know me, then you will know that I have a son obsessed with all things Batman.
He started out loving the old 60’s series that was being shown on ITV3 and he then moved onto the 1st Lego Batman game on the XBox 360.
Isaac was lucky enough to get a (second hand) DS for his birthday, but has been borrowing his brothers games, so when I was offered the chance to review Lego Batman 2 – DC Super Heroes, on the DS, I couldn’t say no!
Even poor Eliza has been brainwashed and creeps up to watch what he is doing, excitedly shouting “Batman” when she sees the caped crusader!
“I enjoyed the first Batman game that we had on the Xbox 360, but when Daddy told me Lego Batman 2 was coming out, i really wanted it on the DS as I have a 3DS. I like that the game tells a story of Lex Luthor breaking into Arkham Asylum to free the other villains. Batman has to gather allies to defeat Luthor, his robots and the Joker.
The game is a little more tricky than the Xbox 360 version, which I have played at a friends house, and they have added different characters to different parts of the game, so that it isn’t the same. The game flows really nicely and I am transported to the Lego world of Batman in Gotham City.
What is really cool is that Batman also goes to Metropolis to help Superman defeat his arch nemesis Lex Luthor. The controls are easy to master and you can also collect coins to buy other heroes and villains. The only thing I cannot do, but would like to be able to do is to download characters, so I give this game 8/10″
I love this game as I get peace and quiet for an hour or so whilst they play it – I would definitely recommend it!!
