"Mom, can I play too?"

  • Feb 12, 2009
I bought this game not sure what to expect. I have played LEGO Star Wars and Indiana Jones, but on the wii, and I wasn't sure how the game would translate into DS format. I can honestly say - it's a blast!

The game is divided into two sections - the hero section and the villain section. It's a ton of fun to see how the villains play the same level. Different entrances or buttons or tasks, but that all relate back to how the heroes will find things. I will say that much of the game seems to be a bit easier than the wii games (though I haven't played Batman on wii), but it certainly does not remove the fun and would probably help the younger players. I'm sure that once my 7-year-old son gets his hands on the game, I'll probably never see it again.

If you're a fan of the LEGO games already, this is a worthy addition to them. If you've held off playing, this would be an excellent way to get your feet wet!

In this game you play Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, …
