This game got a lot of hype on the internet, had a few advertisements over usual at Gametops and other gaming stores, and caught my eye personally. Being a comic reader, I'm always interested in games that are based on Comics,because while they already have established stories, these games give you an option to explore "What if..." scenerios, different variations of plots, and of course being in control of the characters.
If you've ever played a LEGO brand game, you know what's in store for you. If you don't, here's my first look into the game and how it plays out.
First off, relax- it's comedic. Maybe you don't have that sense of humor you need for the game, but it really takes on a level of humor that you're just not going to see in any of the Christopher Nolan films.
The game's premise is easy to derive- Batman's villains are at it again, but this time with the help of Lex Luthor and a few other memorable faces. To go along with this, Superman and other DC heroes join the party. Storywise, you're going to get a basic plot with a comedic twist, but we play games to have fun.
In addition to the Batman perks, the game follows it's lego roots quite nicely. You go around interacting with other Lego setups and characters, different vehicles, and occassionally building new things. There's some vehicle action, and while the first level you get to experience is a rail-gun style chase in the Batplane or Robin 's helicopter, the rest of the game gives a llittle more variety, both in style and vehicle.
For a fun game, maybe the $50 pricetag (or more/less, depending on system and where you buy it) isn't worth it right away. You'll have fun whether you know the plot or just want to hit things all day, So my recommendation- unless you pre-ordered it, wait a bit, let it drop in price, and pick it up. But definitely don't forget about this one!
