Yesterday morning, I turned on my 360 and bought some Microsoft Points so I had enough to buy the GTA IV expansion “The Lost and Damned”. I then bought the expansion. Then set about downloading the 1.8GB it takes up. At about 70% through the download, I had to go out to the shops.
While I was out, I saw Lego Batman cheap in the shop and bought it. And that’s all I played all weekend. Lost and Damned be damned!
So how is it? Well, it’s the same game as Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones, only with Batman and Robin in. There are other differences, of course: you get different suits to allow you to do things like glide and walk up walls. The vehicle levels from Lego Star Wars that were (thankfully) missing from Indiana Jones are back, although they’re better than in Star Wars.
Once you complete each episode, you also unlock extra “villain” levels, although I’ve not yet played any of them.
So far, I’ve been enjoying it a lot. It isn’t quite as good as Indiana Jones, but it’s still lovely. And, naturally, there’s the OCD-factor which is keeping me going!
