LEGO games are funny, easy to get in to and never too challenging. This particular LEGO game has a lot of charm. For a game packed with super heroes and nasty villains, it is surprisingly lighthearted and non-violent. The Batman in this game reminds me of Adam West in the 1960s TV series, rather than Christian Bale in the Dark Knight movies. The amusingly campy feel works really well in this game. My kid slightly prefers this colorful game above its somewhat darker themed sequel (Batman 2 DC Super Heroes). It certainly is a very funny game and is irresistibly charming when played together. Recommended!
