GamesBeat: Lego Batman 2 tries to redefine the franchise but stumbles (review)

Lex Luthor (billionaire industrialist and Superman’s archnemesis) really hates Bruce Wayne, better known to comic-book fans as Batman. He dislikes him so much that he’s ready to team up with the Joker in an attempt to not only take down Batman but also brainwash all of Gotham City. When two criminal masterminds join together, it’ll take more than the Dark Knight to defeat them.

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes calls on members of the Justice League to help stop Luthor and the Joker from taking over the United States…and probably the world soon after, if they’re successful. It’s the first Lego game to implement voice acting and introduce a giant, open world for players to explore.

It definitely feels like a test case for developer Traveler’s Tales upcoming sandbox title, Lego City: Undercover, but not always in a good way. (3DS, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Nintendo DS, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) 75/100

That's too bad. I was looking forward to this one.

Because GamesBeat gave it a respectable 75/100 you're not going to play it? That seems kinda lame.

I'll probably play through it when it hits the $20 price point. I like the LEGO games, great for co-op.

Its a great game, but don't knock the game down because you played it on a 360. I have the ps3 version, and it has not froze once during cutscenes. So my suggestion is find a friend who has this on Ps3, play the same parts where you experienced the freezing and re-score

i have put many hours into this game on my Vita and have never has a freezing issue.

Never care for the Lego games, but this one I'm thinking about getting.

75/100 doesn't seem like mis-step scores to me? 50/100 is like the game could go either way. 25/100 is a misstep.

Gamesbeat tries to redefine reviews but stumbles. It definitely feels like a test case for upcoming reviews. Here is my completely facetious review of your review:

Your Random Review of Lego Batman 2 for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, Vita, 3ds, and ds is trite. It is a poor example of critique. Your comments are wonky and your analysis is tacked on. It would be even more cliched had I not had to grind through all of the tacked on, random hype of your prowess as a reviewer. And since you have written a review before, it certainly doesn't live up to the standards previously set by your review of [insert other game title] for [insert favorite gaming system.]
I give your review a 0.13.
The Good: It was in English, barely.
The Bad: Cliched Terminology should be avoided like the plague.
The Ugly: Putting your photoshopped picture next to your review doesn't make you less of a tool.

I have the PS3 version and have played a few hours and so far not one crash or even a glitch. Not one I noticed at least.
