Lego Batman 2, a game that there was no doubt I would play as I'm a huge fan of the xbox lego games but it was also the first one I was unsure about as it was the first in the lego series where the characters actually talk. But putting that aside it was still a lego game and still something I wanted to play.
You start off as Batman and Robin, eventually opening up characters such as Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, The Green Lantern and as you continue you get to play the bad guys like Lex Luthor, The Riddler, Mothman etc.
The storyline was pretty average and whilst it wasn't too bad I found that that part of the game went far too fast and could have done with more. However, what it lacks in storyline it makes up for in free roam game play. You travel around Gotham City and have certain things to do, you have Citizens in Peril, vehicles to unlock and Gold Bricks (for which you have a range of things required to do to gain them).
I really enjoyed this game. Talking characters did take some getting used to, but after a couple of hours gameplay you're well used to it.
