Tech Talk Game Review: Lego Batman 2

0

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

Genre

Action/ Adventure platformer

Platform

PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, Wii.

Story

Lex Luthor is going to become President of the United States through nefarious means (of course!) and he’s enlisted the help of Joker to do it. It’s now up to Batman and Superman to stop him … possibly, with a little help from their friends.

Mechanics

This is very simple while doing a lot of things at once. One button will switch from one character to another (several on the screen at once). The jump button does different things for different characters — be it double-jumping or flying. The special abilities button can do something as simple as activate scanners, and holding it down arms and lets you target with a ranged weapon.

Gameplay

Basically, Lego figures are beating up on each other. Only this time, you get the large playground of Gotham to run around in.

Music/Graphics

The music was okay.

And the graphics sufficed. This isn’t the Lego Marvel game.

Morals/Appropriateness

It’s a Lego game. I’m going to pretend that no one is really and honestly concerned about that.

Community/Multiplayer

No community, but there is co-op throughout the game.

Addiction Danger

Too short for that.

Problems/Ending Comments

A far superior game of either of the Lego Batman games.  I played for 16 hours in this game, and it felt like a better, more fulfilling experience than the 27 hours I spend in Lego Batman 3 looking for something more to be there.  If you want a DC Lego game, get this one. The others are okay, but play this one if you can.

ESRB Rating:  E For Everyone.

My Rating: 9/10.  Great game.
