Yes! It’s yet another Lego game. I’ve played a lot of them now, and they’re all basically the same. The thing with this one, is you play as all the DC Comics bad guys who have to save the world from an alternate universe version of The Justice League who are bad. Which basically means smashing everything and solving the odd puzzle.
It isn’t the best Lego game, but none of them are bad and this is pretty high up in the list. As well as lots of varied levels and the usual humour, DC Super-Villains has a decent hub world (albeit one where Gotham City, Smallville and Metropolis are all smooshed up together instead of being hundreds of miles apart) with lots to do. In fact, that’s where around half of the game – if you’re going for 100% – takes place. Find lots of things, do tasks for citizens, and lots of time trials. Too many time trials, truth be told. They’re not a great deal of fun when you have a million of them.
As usual, I played the lot in co-op with my daughter, and it was a lot of fun. The two of us chipping away at all the hub challenges separately with the odd two-player requirement for some is always great.
