MacLife Review: LEGO Batman

In the seminal 1989 Batman film directed by Tim Burton, the Joker, played to smarmy perfection by Jack Nicholson, grouses about the well-equipped Caped Crusader, "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" Ol' Joker was talking about the batarang or something, but in this game, the answer is clear: The toys are LEGO. The vehicles are LEGO. The environments are LEGO. Even the characters are LEGO.

In the grand tradition of LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Indiana Jones, LEGO Batman re-creates Gotham City in colorful, 3D environments built out of LEGO bricks. You play as Batman and Robin, switching on the fly. Or a second person can join the game anytime, and you work together. Anything made from LEGOs is destructible, and puzzles are often solved by breaking the scenery and reassembling the pieces into a tool, a vehicle, or a passageway needed to get farther into the game. (LEGO Batman, PC) 4/5
