NWR writes: "Despite having a unique story and characters, LEGO Batman is the fifth game in its series and the third incarnation on Wii. For any veterans of Traveler's Tales LEGO series, this is fully obvious when you jump into their latest game. The similarities aren't necessarily a bad thing, as the tried-and-true gameplay still works, but it would take a major addition to the series to rejuvenate it. Unfortunately LEGO Batman isn't that major addition.
While the previous LEGO outings had classic movies to draw from, LEGO Batman draws from Batman's history in comics, movies, and LEGO sets. This eliminates the familiar scenes from Star Wars and Indiana Jones and grants Traveler's Tale a degree of freedom with the story. With a hero side and a villain side to the story, this adds some more variety to the game. It also allows for a vast assortment of villains that form a who's who of the Caped Crusader's Rogues' Gallery. The game's story features almost every significant Batman villain ranging from the Joker to the Penguin and everyone in between. The best addition is the little-known Killer Moth who is defeated by turning on a giant light bulb."
