Batman is developer Traveller's Tales fifth outing in the LEGO series and the previous games in this genre have proven to be successful. LEGO Batman is different however in that it is the first not to be based on a movie or even a comic book. As it is an original story this game can follow its own path making the scope almost limitless.
Although this sounds exciting at the end of the day the scripting is a little disappointing as it basically revolves around a bunch of bad guys escaping Arkham Asylum with Batman having to hunt them down. It really is that straightforward and will probably suit the audience because the Lego games are a simple mixture of escapism and retro yet addictive gameplay.
