The Lego series of games have struck yet again, only this time around they’ve joined up with none other than the Batman license. Lego Batman for the DS is undoubtedly the best Lego-based video game to hit the DS yet, as you play as The Dark Knight himself along with his trusty sidekick Robin in tow, and take on some familiar faces from Batman’s classic rogues gallery. If you’ve played any of the other Lego videogames, you’ll feel right at home here, and as you’d come to expect, there are hordes of unlockables and bonuses to find that will keep your interest. The only downsides of Lego Batman are the same flaws that plagued the previous Lego-based games: the game itself is short and quite easy to get through, and gameplay-wise nothing has changed from previous outings. Still, Lego Batman looks good with larger environments, and Danny Elfman’s classic Batman film score is put to good use as well. Plus, with all the unlockables, you’ll be busy for a while. All in all, if you dug the previous Lego games, Lego Batman is definitely right up your alley.

This game is beautiful. Being a huge Batman fan, I had to buy it. I wasn’t expecting it to be terrible, but I wasn’t expecting it to be mind-blowing either, especially for the Nintendo DS. But it is quite, quite amazing. The graphics are decent, but the thing that really gets my nostalgia wheels turning is the soundtrack from the ’89 Batman and Batman Returns by Danny Elfman! I am blown away by the fact that they used this music. I thought that they would just slap some synthesized Nintendo music on it, or some weird dark and brooding stuff that was made at the last second. The music by Elfman really captures the mood of the game and makes you feel like a kid again. It reminds me of the amazing Batman: TAS from the 90’s. I get in the same mindset I did when I watch that TV show and it’s highly recommended for anyone who calls themselves a Batman fan or just an appreciator of a fun game that kills time. It’s a blast.
