Shockingly, and I’m ashamed to admit this – Lego Batman 2: DC Universe marks my very first steps in a Lego game. Having seen many of them come and go during this generation, it looked like a franchise of gaming that would never interest me.
I’ve walked through the room and glanced at the screen on many an occasion while my 10-year old cousin played Lego Harry Potter. “I like my action a bit more brutal and my humour a bit more adult”, I thought to myself, “Plus, platformers just aren’t what they used to be. These are kids game. There’s no way Lego can match the creativity of the likes of Ratchet and Clank”…man, was I wrong.
