My initial plan was to run with Spelunky for this week’s Community Review, but it’s the kind of game I’d personally like to play first before discussing. So instead let’s talk about LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes. This is the first LEGO game in a while that has received such positive reactions for folks in the community, so I’m really keen to hear precisely what it is about this game that makes it interesting?
I haven’t played a LEGO game since I had to review one of the Harry Potter games a while back. The whole template for LEGO games was starting to get stale for me, so I sort of just ignored the newer ones. Is there a reason why LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes is getting such positive press? Is it just superhero wish fulfilment and fan service? Or is there actually a great LEGO game underneath it all?
Community Review is our weekly regular where you we review games together. What did I think, what did you think? It’s all up for discussion.
