MyMac Magazine 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. MyMac gave the game a perfect score of 5 out of 5.

From the review:

Both the Hero and Villains get three different stories, or campaigns, and in each campaign there are six levels. That's 36 levels altogether, and while that alone may not sound like very much, it is a ton. And here's why.

After you play through a level in Story mode, you can go back on "Free Play" to unlock and explore many parts of each level you were not able to access in the Story mode. For instance, because neither Batman nor Robin can walk in the deadly green goo without dying, you missed out on entire parts of the level unless you go back and play the same level with a character that can go in the green goo. (Poison Ivy, for instance.)

The key to what make LEGO Batman a success, and why my wife is still hooked on the game even after playing it for months, is the collectables. On each level, there are ten hidden "Mini Kits" that you need to find. Also, even more hidden, are special "Red Bricks" that unlock special abilities that you can buy between levels. It is finding and unlocking items that has my wife so enamored with the game. She will spend an hour or more simply trying to figure out how to reach a Mini Kit or a Red Brick using various characters. And trust me, it's not always easy or simple. To reach many of these items, you have to figure out how to solve a puzzle. It may sound daunting, and it is, but that is also the hook to the game which will keep you coming back time and again to revisit older levels.
