Eurogamer writes: "If you're a cynic, you're probably thinking LEGO Batman will just be LEGO Star Wars with less lightsabers and more capes. If you're a LEGO Star Wars fan, you're probably hoping that's the case. Well, there are certainly similarities - expect lots of running and jumping, puzzle solving, collecting and LEGO construction. But as producer Jez Doyle was keen to point out when Warner Bros. showed off the game recently, there's new stuff here too.
There's a whole new game mode, for example. As with the previous LEGO titles, you can replay all the levels in the game as any character you like. However, the new Villain mode also lets you experience the storyline from an alternative perspective. The villains play a big part in LEGO Batman, and there are plenty of them; Joker, Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman all make an appearance, along with less well-known characters like Killer Croc and Scarecrow."
