LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for Wii Review & Giveaway

With four young boys in this house, there are two things that are very much loved: super heroes and LEGOs. Who am I kidding? I love them both too! And when it comes to video games, the LEGO games are this family's favorites. We have all three LEGO Star Wars games, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones and the first Batman one. When I saw that LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was coming out, I knew I had to get my hands on it for my boys (and me).




Batman and Robin return in LEGO® Batman™ 2: DC Super Heroes, the highly-anticipated sequel to LEGO® Batman™: The Videogame, the best-selling LEGO® videogame of all time, which has sold more than 11 million units worldwide. This time the Dynamic Duo join forces with other famous DC super heroes including Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern to stop the notorious villains Lex Luthor and The Joker from destroying Gotham City. Batman fans of all ages will enjoy a new and original story filled with classic LEGO videogame action and humor as players fight to put the bad guys back behind bars.

Let me just start by saying that when I showed the package to kids, they started jumping up and down and fighting over who would get to play it first. They were all very excited and this game did not disappoint. As in typical LEGO video game fashion, the game is easy for kids to pick up and play but equally fun for adults as well. I know it is rated 10+ but we let our 7 year old and 5 year old twins play all the LEGO video games and they do great with it. I personally get a kick out of the humor that they mix in. For example, when Superman is standing by idle during game play, you will see him flexing his muscles. And when he flies, you hear the Superman theme music play.


One of the awesome things about this game is that you get to play as other SC super heroes as well. Early on you will unlock Superman and along the way there is also Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and many more. In total, there are 50 DC super heroes to play as! Superman is our favorite to play as so far because not only can he fly, but you also get to use his X-Ray vision, Heat Vision and Freeze Breath! Our boys are also itching to find Green Lantern. As for villains, you will find all of the usual suspects in The Joker, The Riddler, Two Face and so on plus Superman's arch nemesis Lex Luthor is thrown into the mix as well. This is also the first LEGO video game that the characters have voices, which is a nice change.


When you think of Batman, of course all of his awesome gadgets come to mind. There are plenty of those to go around in this game. You will get to drive the Batmobile, Batwing and Batboat and you will need to use special suits to get through certain levels. All of this makes for hours of fun game play! We have had LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for about 2 weeks now and it is the only game my kids want to play. It is definitely a huge hit and they have plenty more to complete. Of course their favorite part is replaying a level in Free Play mode so they can choose whichever Super Hero they want. It will be awesome when all 50 characters are unlocked. This game definitely gets 2 big thumbs up from me and my boys, who can't get enough of it. You may also find mom playing a little bit after the kids are in bed. But that's our little secret!
