The latest in the increasingly popular Lego franchise of games has finally arrived, but will the blocky hero be able to sustain your attention?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.
On The Flip Side: The story of Lego Batman revolves around the "good side" (Batman, Robin) and the "bad side" (Riddler, Joker) and being able to play on both sides of the fence this time around.You will switch automatically between both the blocky Dark Knight and friends, and Joker and his pals. You will be able to play as big name Gotham city staples like Batman, The Joker, and Harley Quinn, but also smaller names like The Riddler and Killer Croc.
I Just Build Him: The gameplay in Lego Batman is not different in any noticeable manner then that which is featured in other Lego games like Lego Star Wars or Lego Indiana Jones.You will once again move throughout little blocky environments building various vehicles and bridges and other aids, all the while dismantling your enemies. The gameplay is still enjoyable to some degree, but not nearly as much as when you experienced it last time around (possibly in Lego Indiana Jones). The gameplay formula is simply starting to get a little tired. There have been absolutely no additions or improvements to the gameplay since its first Lego game in the series released way back in April of 2005!
Building With Friends: Lego Batman also features the ability to play co-op with a friend on the same console.The co-op gameplay in Lego Batman is quite strong and will provide some replay value as the game is considerably more fun when you have someone else to play with (or against maybe, depending on how much you like your friend).
Rent vs. Buy: Lego Batman is a nice installment in the Lego series of games, but fails to add or improve upon the formula that was introduced back in 2005.If you are looking for an enjoyable experience and do not care that Lego Batman is essentially Lego Star Wars, or Lego Star Wars II...or Lego Indiana Jones but with the Caped Crusader then by all means buy this game.
