LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes review
Exceptional
by Animus_

Amazing at everything it tries to do. This game breaks the common formula of modern story-based games with its simplistic but charming gameplay. While the puzzles can take a fair amount of thought at times, the combat is relatively easy. After all, this game is for all ages. Because the gameplay itself isn’t demanding of mechanical skill, the game focuses mainly on a charming and distinctive aesthetic, and the collection of various collectible currencies, trophies, and characters. Aesthetically, Lego Batman 2 takes everything great about the Burton and Schumacher Batman films and makes it all work within a giant modernistic city. It feels industrial yet Gothic, and it manages to work together because of the tone and style of the game. Each level is action-packed, and there are several stages that are incredibly beautiful to look at. The story itself is somewhat simplistic, but by no means boring or bad. There are twists and turns, wins and losses, and some great themes present within the story itself, with characters that are far from one-dimensional. The game features a fairly large roster, with a total of 60 playable characters, and while it does lack in a few popular characters from the DC lore, the available selection is nothing short of amazing. To unlock each character, you have to work on numerous challenges throughout the city, which makes free-roam very engaging and enjoyable. On top of that, the design of the city is just fantastic already. You can walk or drive right over to the Gotham Funland, or Arkham Asylum, which makes everything feel extremely large in scope. In general, what really makes this game so special to me is its prestigious ability to portray Batman and the world that surrounds him.

Lego Batman 2 has rightly received Top Marks from the relevant Trade Journals. It's Also high on the List compared to other Lego games. I played through the Game with my 5-year-old Son and we had an insanely great Time doing it with each other. The Motivation to unlock all Charactere, buy all Vehicles and Planes, grab all the Golden Stones and handle all Levels is immensely high. We have up to 4 Golden Stones and a Character (which you only get when you have all the golden Stones) do everything in the Game, but Steam swallowed himself a little-we didn't-as stated by Steam-manage it in a good 13 Hours-I guess that it was about 25 Hours. Those who like Lego Games can strike without any Qualms, even if you're not a Batman fan. And if you are still a Batman fan-there really is no Excuse for not buying this Game!

Good app but I miss the optimization for iPhone 6, 6 Plus and despite the fact that this game is made for iPhone 5, more graphics can also be done for the 64 bit processor

An update to optimize this application on a 64-bit system would be greatly appreciated ..! (Your apps are paying, the future of their compatibility should not be forgotten)

Scam we would be taken for goats! ?? A game 4.99 euros with advertising ?? Or it's free with advertising or paying without advertising must stop taking consumers for idiots.

Not only do you buy the game itself, but the game cannot be completed if you do not flip up a pile of money. Begin and get very bored with these children's games aimed at the parents' wallet.

The game itself also nice. But the missions, besides being few, are long and you can't save during the mission so if you go out then you have to start over. It would be useful to insert checkpoints from where to start within the missions.

This app is very large and also needs a lot of memory. You could have thought that an iPod 4 or an iPad 1 could not handle this game. I have an iPad Air myself and it never gets stuck. So it's your problem because I don't have a problem with anything.

Why does Robin's suit the one that should suck up toxic green liquids in the third level not work? I tried every way but it doesn't suck anything and I can't go on I hope that soon we can solve the problem or that someone will explain to me what to do

The game is fun and has succeeded except for a few little things well. The story is told with the well-known Legohumor. The levels are appealing and there is a good level overview for second or third runs of certain levels if you need to unlock something. What I think is a pity that the video sequences were taken one to one from the PC version, so that unfortunately they do not always match the plot of the iPad version, since here the action differs in part from the PC version or the plot something less complex. Another shortcoming is the advertising that appears in the game. With a purchased full version my opinion should be waived.
