Mac|Life has posted a review of LEGO Batman: The Videogame. In the game players can explore an interactive LEGO Gotham City as Batman and Robin, capturing infamous villains, and even taking control of the villains themselves. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

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.

The all-new story line is split into three episodes, with our heroes chasing down escaped villains and herding them back to Arkham Asylum. But since the Batman universe features such larger-than-life criminals, the game includes another three episodes in which you play as the bad guys, each of whom have special powers.

In each episode, your characters fight enemies hand-to-hand, explore the gorgeous 3D environments, solve puzzles to lead them to the end of the level, and then battle a boss character. Along the way you also pick up coins to buy upgrades, find hidden treasure, and collect the pieces to construct trophies, but all those are really bonus diversions from the main game, included to boost replay value. You can’t find all of a level’s 10 hidden “LEGO canisters,” for example, when playing through it in Story mode. You have to beat the level in Story mode to unlock Free Play mode, where you play it again with any character--including the specialized characters needed to access all the LEGO canisters.
