''The Lego games from Traveller's Tales have been a huge success, combining something we all love (Lego) with something else we all love (Star Wars, Indiana Jones). With the eerily dark The Dark Knight setting cinemas alight this summer Batman is the superhero of the moment, so TT's decision to make Lego Batman is a very wise one indeed. Of course, while Christian Bale and Heath Ledger took the movies to new dark depths, Lego Batman provides fans with a completely different experience. Previous Lego games have had more than a touch of slapstick and artistic flair to them, and this is no different. In fact, this might be the most stylish, funny Lego game to date.
Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones have had to follow a fairly strict story. Being based on existing movies the developers at TT didn't have much room to do their own thing (although they certainly added their own trademark humour), but Lego Batman is different. It's a completely original story, written by the dev team with the help of DC Comics. It just so happens that every villain has escaped from Arkham Asylum, so it's your job as Batman or Robin to send them back where they belong.''
