I have to admit, I never really got the Lego franchise. I mean who wants to play a dumbed down version of any game never mind one where the characters can’t speak?

Fortunately there is speech in Lego Batman 2 (yay) but it’s not about the speech or not, it’s about how playable the game is, an for it’s audience how much you get from it.

On the fun score it is 8/10 as it’s entirely open, you’re free to roam and smash nearly everything using broken bricks to build stuff & help solve puzzles.

You can play as many different characters not only Batman and Robin. The highlight most definitely being Batman & Superman, the interaction between them is highly amusing.

Although the game is supposed to be from seven up, I’ve had some trouble solving and getting through some stages. I can imagine the frustration it can present for some children.

It could be that the rating is 7+ but it can’t be that the game is targeted at that age groups. Lego Batman 2 brilliance is that it is able to provide entertainment for kids and adults with equal aplomb.
