After being outed by Lego's own advertising team in a series of toys, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is officially on its way to pretty much every gaming device out there, starting in summer 2012. Beyond the platform ubiquity, WB unveiled the game's main cast, which has Superman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman joining forces with Gotham's famous bat and bird.

We're also told "notorious villains" like Lex Luthor and Joker will be a part of the game, providing a good serving of antagonism for the super hero quintet. Batman series staples such as the Batmobile and Batwing will also make appearances, albeit in Lego form. Developer TT Games is once again at the helm, no doubt infusing its silly sense of humor into Batman's typically grim career.

Press Release:

WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT, TT GAMES AND THE LEGO GROUP

F'ing awesome! The first Lego Batman was my favorite Lego of all time (with a close second to the first Harry Potter). But now it looks like we get other DC Heroes to boot (I nominate Green Lantern, Flash, and Lobo along with the full range of Robins and their alter egos (Red Robin, Nightwing, Red Hood, etc)).

I think I need to go back to the old Lego Batman and get the remaining 200 achievement points in celebration of this grand annoucement.

Thank the video game gods! The lego games are by far my favorite games of the last decade ( along with the new Donkey Kong for Wii.) just fun all the way through. The original Batman LEgo game is one of the 3 lego games I havnt played all the way through yet (along with Harry potter 5-8 and Star wars 3. But i own all of em) So, i cant wait for this new Batman Lego game for Wii. Sweet!!!!!!!!

I hope I'm wrong, but does anybody else get the impression from reading the press release that we might not get villains stories to play with this time around? Surely, we will get characters...but I highly enjoyed that half of the game was villain based before. It seems like that they might base this one solely on the heroes this time around.

As much as I love big complex adrenaline pumping games, I simply can't get enough of Lego games! Still have Batman Lego on my shelf and I've been holding out on it until I can really dedicate some time since I know I'll love it. Been playing Pirates of the Caribbean Lego lately.

With this announcement, I hope Lego Avatar the Last Airbender, Lego LOTR, and Lego Toy Story aren't far behind!

And I wouldn't be surprised if DC had some sort of clause in their licensing agreements of this game that precluded them from making a Marvel game as well.

What's the appeal of these games? I always thought they were simple platformers, just with a Lego license.

What's the appeal of these games? I always thought they were simple platformers, just with a Lego license.

The appeal to me is getting all of the characters, easy achievements (for the most part), in case of Harry Potter and ones based on actual movie events how well they get the little things right and great co-op play. My wife and myself have an absolute ball playing it. Sure you die plenty of times at first but since it hardly penalizes you at all for it, nobody usually gets upset or frustrated. (except at the occasional glitch). They are some of the greatest pick up and play type games of this generation. The only bad ones to date I've played in my opinion were the Indiana Jones ones. But Batman, Potter, Star Wars all complete blasts.

A month ago I would have agreed with you. They released 3 games last year within a few months (Clone Wars, Pirates and Harry Potter 2) and not only did I play all three but I also finally got around to playing the first Potter game immediately before starting the second. I'm not talking casual play, I'm talking 100%/1000gs play. I played the two "Star Wars" trilogy games on the original Xbox but I've played every subsequent game to completion on the 360 starting with the "Complete Saga" Star Wars one so at this point I practically have to complete each one.

Playing both Potter games back-to-back was tedious to say the least but it hasn't been that long and I'm ready for another one. They're formulaic and repetitive but they're fun as hell and unlocking everything is extremely satisfying.

Lego Batman was awesome, even though I'm glitched from getting my one final achievement, and Lego Pirates was my favorite so far (1k/1k). I've started the Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Indy series, but none of them have drawn me in like Pirates and Batman. I am so ready for Lego Batman 2!!

Agreed. I think they're a lot of fun but only worth $20. I'm curious if they'll actually make Superman fly.

dvdsteve2000
01-07-12, 06:06 PM
Why are they only worth $20? I've put as much time and effort into Pirates and Batman as I did, say...Portal 2, Arkham Asylum/City, and Dead Space (1 or 2). They are full-fledged games in my opinion, and well worth full price. Not saying there's anything wrong with waiting for a bargain, just saying they are as meaty as many other games.

I don't feel that way. Even though I did put a lot of time into Batman and Indy Jones, I still felt like I was doing the same thing over and over again. Other games are often tedious like that, but I give them a pass because they're huge expansive worlds.

pinata242
01-08-12, 11:42 AM
I think, too, that it doesn't help their $60 cause because the entries are so frequent and so similar. Not that that's a valid argument, I'm just saying that some people would make that case.

Obi-Wan Jabroni
01-08-12, 02:23 PM
I find it hard to justify paying full price for any game without an online component, plus it doesn't really take long for these games to drop into the $20 range.

Decker
01-08-12, 02:52 PM
To be fair, they're $49.99 MSRP games, not $59.99 ones. Something the Rayman Origins folks should have considered.

I still have not finished the first Batman, my son is not a huge Batman/DC fan so I will wait for the $20 price point and to finish the first one. I buy all the games for my son and I to play, he is a HUGE Lego fan and our house is full of Legos in what seems like every room. When Marvel comes out that might be a $30-40 purchase as he really likes those characters. I still need to pick up the 2 Indy games too, but I am so cheap I am waiting to find them for $5 each.

Also worth noting that it's Mark Hammill, who has said about a dozen times that he'd never play The Joker again.

FWIW, I was looking at IGN and apparently this is the "Superman" trailer. So that's why he's so prominently featured.

I'e seen a Heros and Villans DLC pre-order packs, I hope all these will be in ge after you beat it, don't wanna buy two copies.

Wal-Mart had a DLC character pack for Lego Harry Potter 2 that was made available shortly afterwards (like within weeks). People who preorder at the specific retailers will get them for free and early too but they should be available to everyone eventually.

and as with all these games there's never an ability that isn't possessed by several characters. I actually had the LHP2 Wal-Mart DLC and I remember one of the characters gave me access to one of the special abilities a lot earlier than any of the core unlockable characters but even so, it was slightly convenient at best.

pinata242
05-22-12, 09:26 PM
Will these not just be characters that you unlock/buy in the game anyway? Or are they actually bonus skins on the already-available skillz?

I pre-ordered it for that $37 price to keep my options open. I would have been fine waiting, though. Since it comes with some DLC, I might just keep it now.

I read in either OXM or PTOM that this game will have mid-level saves (at fucking last!). Nothing was more annoying than spending 30 minutes trying to solve all the puzzles in a level and then having to leave or turn the system off before ending the level and losing all the progress. This is a series of kids' games and it's taken them, what, 10 games, to figure out that a mid-level save system is a good idea.

Awesome, totally agree about the mid level save. I was playing the 2nd Potter game with my wife and the 2nd level on Year 5 took us FOREVER. We finally finished it but she got so burnt out on it that I'll probably end up finishing it myself :(. This should have been implemented eons ago.

Sucks that UPS average delivery time for me is around 6 in the evening. I wish they would understand my need for this to be delivered earlier in the day so that I can actually play it.

Not Robin's son. Batman's son, Damien Wayne.

As for the game, I'm torn. It's good but I don't know if opening up this as a free world game makes it any better. The environments are very bland and boring. Plus, I don't get how you are supposed to play as the other characters. Is every level Batman and Robin then you go back during free play and do the other characters? I've seen superman and green lantern in the "main" world, so I don't know how you get to that point. Overall, I'm not as impressed with it as I thought I would be.

I will say Batman and Robin's new suits are pretty cool, though.

Just a word of advice. there was an Xbox live update this morning. I wouldn't install it. It is now telling me that my Lego Batman 2 game disc is unreadable. It might just be me, but I wouldn't take the chance. Fucking hell. And I've tried other games, and they work completely fine. So beware if you install the update. It may brick your Lego game so you can't play it.

edit: i just tried it 5x and same thing. on the 6th try the disc worked. i don't know what the fuck is going on, but since it's a brand new game and i played it for hours yesterday without issue, i doubt it's the disc.

There have been quite a few recent titles like that. Batman Arkham City only boots about 50% of the time, installed or not. I had Prototype 2 do the same thing twice on me as well. I think it was that update a while back where they changed some disc stuff and beta tested it with free copies of Halo to people.

Not sure where you are but try using Superman and flying towards the symbol. My son had that problem and when I did that, it turned into a cutscene eventually.



Has anyone started "collecting" the villans yet? He beat Joker, but didn't have the coins to buy him. Now he's gone back and Joker doesn't appear where he was or the video shows him. Do they change locations or is this some glitch?

This where I'm confused. How the hell do you switch to Superman? I only have Batman/Robin on screen. The instruction manual says to hold Y (xbox360) in free play to switch characters, but it doesn't say anything about the open world character switching. No tutorial or anything. It's frustrating.

As for your 2nd question, yes. I've got Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc, Harley Quinn and one other one, I think. They are pretty easy to beat. It's just costs a ton of money to buy them. That's why I'm not getting them right now anymore and focusing on the levels to build up my cash. I've also "unlocked" Ra's Al Ghul and Talia but I've not found them or figured out how to get to them. I think they are up on buildings, so once I figured out how to switch to Supes, I'll get them. :lol:

Now I'm right there with you being confused. The open world free play with any character opens after you beat the story, until then you can't switch characters. I forget which mission it is but Superman becomes part of your regular team so he's one of the people you can use in the hub. If that hasn't happened yet, I'm stumped. The only other thing I can think of is that it's not actually an island, just that part of the map hasn't "opened" yet since you haven't found the terminal so it's just darkened but you can actually get there.

Well, I've played Superman in the ACE chemicals level. But when I get to the computer hub things in the main world, it's either map or vehicle. No character switch. It's no different in the batcave.

As for where I'm stumped, there's a bat signal in the middle of the river near the Water Works (just to the west of it). There's nothing there when you look in and there's no way to get into the water since I don't have a boat or a water character to switch to. I'm really not liking how you select levels in this game. It was so much better in the 1st game. Oh well. I'll dick around some more and try to figure it out.

I unlocked all of the bosses around the map and the Joker is not one of them. I'm assuming that the Joker will be obtained from beating the story. I still haven't been able to get Poison Ivy to actually show up where she is supposed to so that I can beat her and purchase her character. Also, Killer Croc didn't show up in his spot either when I went over there. However, for both of those characters there are spots that need to be cleaned up by Robin's hazard suit so maybe those characters will not show up until I can bring Robin over there. Right now my two playable characters are Batman and Superman and I'm getting ready to start level 10.

Joker is located at the Ace Chemicals plant. The terminal is in pieces but only the Flash can build it so you need to be the story to obtain him. I'm not sure about the other two.

So apparently this is a mistake, where the symbol is that I'm seeing. this was on Game faqs b/c someone asked the same question:

Is this post mission 5? If so, that marker for whatever reason is a mistake. Mission 6 is started (at least for me) by following the Lex Corp Truck that is going around Gotham Park. Hope this is what you were looking for.

What's most troublesome about this whole project is that the Lego games are already notoriously buggy. Mix that with some open world craziness and I assume my imagination would the limit to all the things that could pop up with this game. :lol:

That being said, I'm enjoying the change up to the structure. Not a huge fan of the longer levels, but the save/checkpoints are a nice equalizer to that change as well.

Poison Ivy is behind the door that you need Robin to clear with the hazard suit. Apparently she's buggy as well as a lot of people are claiming she won't fight them. It seems that you have to leave and go right back in once or twice for the fight to finally take place.


There's an easter egg on the main screen. If you go into options and than back to the main screen, "coming soon" becomes one of the menu choices. It's a quick 30 second trailer for Lego Lord of the Rings.

I think the open world might make the game too big for little kids. My son has beaten the story, collected all the red bricks, most of the villians and about half of the citizens in peril and he's only at about 40%.

Yes, this is what I had to do. She appeared, but then wouldn't fight. Go out of the building, come right back and and it'll trigger the flight.

I just got Superman in the open world. I totally agree. Up should be up, down should be down (on the controller) not the inverse. I hate that shit and you can't change it, either. That's annoying as hell.

As for the game, stick with it until you open up Superman. once you do that, it's like a completely different game. You can fly around to open up the computer terminals, which unlocks the map to scan for extras. So much easier with him than with Batman.

No you can fight then save, but then you have to go all the way back to beginning of the level. Sometimes that could take a few minutes. I agree about the saving part and dying. That happened when I got a gold brick. I watched as some joker thug rolled up and just kept beating me. :lol:

I made it over the 50% finished mark earlier today. The biggest pains will be the gold blocks that require you to climb a particular building with either Batman or Robin in a certain suit. I'm going to see if I can fly the character to the top in the ufo I bought earlier but I doubt it will let me. Also, I now have to go back through and play all of the levels once again in free play and hope that I can find all of the minikits.

IGN review indicates that the Vita version is completely inferior and dumbed down in the same way HP Years 5-7 was. It's a shame since there's no reason this couldn't have been a nearly-straight port of the PS3 version. I would have considered rebuying this game for an on-the-go version of the HD console game, but not for an overpriced gloried PSP or iPad game. What a waste.

Decker
06-22-12, 09:16 AM
Rayman Origins, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Mortal Kombat Komplete are all very close to identical to the disc versions of those games. And I re-bought every single one of them to get a portable Vita version.

I'm trying to think, but outside of the crappy Lego ports, I can't think of many super-stripped down inferior ports of retail disc games (the sort we got used to seeing on the PSP). MLB The Show 12 I haven't seen or played, but I hear it's okay. I guess Ninja Gaiden is sort of stripped down. Metal Gear Solid HD is supposed to be very close to the console version, except for the apparent corporate decision to remove Peace Walker from the collection. I'm not a FIFA expert -- I assume there's a huge difference between the PS3 and the Vita version of that game, but since the Vita version got very strong reviews, I don't think anyone would compare it to a PSP or DS port, like we see with the Lego games.

Loving the game so far. I've played all of the Lego games (except the Harry Potter ones), and this is easily the best.

Out of convenience, I purchased mine at Wal-Mart. They have have an exclusive edition that comes in a digibook with a copy of Green Lantern - Emerald Knights (http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/50229/green-lantern-emerald-knights/). It's a pretty sharp looking package. Personally, I'm not interested in the movie, but it's not a bad deal if the flick is something you'd want. The PS3 version comes with a Blu-ray copy of Emerald Knights. The 360, Wii, and PC versions have a DVD copy. I only saw a couple copies of the exclusive edition for each platform.

That's a really pretty copy. Emerald Knights is pretty decent, it's basically 6 (I could be wrong on the number) stories that bridge into one major story. I liked First Flight a little better but its great to see it as an extra here. Hopefully the 360 version has the blu-ray as well. I'm trying to tell myself to wait for this to come down in price, but the exclusives are making it hard. Currently I'm finishing up Lego Harry Potter 5-7 (86% woot!), and I know my wife is eyeing this one.

Because nobody with a 360 would own a blu-ray player :). Well that's the logic anyway especially with "kids" games. But when you mentioned that, I was thinking in the back of my head, I bet the 360 copy only has a dvd. Oh well, I already own the blu, so its no big deal, was just curious.

I gotta question about Ace Chemicals. I have saved the level 2x.

1st was when Sups first appears. I then saved & went to sleep. I went back to play & started in the Bat-cave, I drove to the bat-signal where Ace Chems is & it started me at the entrance. where the initial cutscreen of Vicky Vale is. Then I go in & have to collect the 5 flasks again. So I do that & make it thru that 1st bit & get to where I can save again this time right after the 5 flasks have been collected.

I turn the game off & come back later only to have to do the entire thing again for a 3rd time with the flasks. I have to be doing something wrong, so can anyone lend a hand. Thank you.

The logic behind is probably more along the lines of "We know if you're buying the PS3 version, you have a Blu-ray player included in the PS3. If you're buying the 360, Wii, or PC version, you may have a separate Blu-ray player, but we don't know that for sure, so we'll include the DVD version that you'll definitely be able to play since the game is on a DVD for all three."

If I was buying the 360 version, I'd definitely prefer a Blu-ray copy of the movie, but I can see why they'd want to include a DVD copy. They'd probably have a lot of unhappy customers who wouldn't be able to play the Blu-ray version.

I just finished the Ace Chemical level. Now I know why more games don't have you playing as a hazmat cleaning crew -- it's a drag. What really annoyed me was twice I was very close to getting a gold brick or satellite thingy for completing some task when I accidentally triggered the next sequence and missed out on it. They should make it more obvious that if you break these shiny bricks, you'll end the level (as opposed to the hundreds of previous shiny bricks you recently broke). I don't want to re-visit Ace Chemicals any time soon.
But playing as Supes is awful fun (though it does feel like cheating).

I've uninstalled the game from my HD and it's working, so I got past that glitch part w/ Robin's car. Still annoying as hell. I should probably cancel my replacement disc from Amazon, but I'm going to get it sent anyway. Maybe there is something wrong with this disc.

Must be nice. Wish I had the chance to play the game. :sad:

What's the problem? Hooks for hands?

Guess I am done with the game prematurely. Locks up at a specific part and I can't progress any further. Such fucking bullshit. Not the first time it has locked either. Probably the 5th or 6th time. :mad:

Looks like I'm not the only one having a problem in the exact same spot: http://www.360haven.com/forums/showthread.php?14899-Lego-Batman-2-DC-Heroes-freezing-issue

It's weird to me how much interest this game has gotten here--this thread already has more posts than the threads for the last two LEGO games combined (Pirates and Harry Potter). To me, the LEGO games have gotten really stale, so it's gotta be the DC license that you guys are interested in, right?

I'm just super-burnt-out on the LEGO games in general, and have been ever since Lego Indy 2 came out. I'm so burnt-out that I can't even bring myself to redeem the free code for LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars I've got, knowing what a repetitive grind the 1000/1000 will be. . .

I think that this thread is longer because more people bought it at launch, thanks to that cheap Amazon pre-order price. Playing a game at launch at the same time as other forum members always bumps up the post count here.
The DC license helps, sure. But moreso, as someone who owns every Lego game, this one is by far the best (at least so far). Plus it's the first Superman game that actually works. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good. Don't let Indy 2 (certainly the worst game in the series) dissuade you because this one is fun. I thought Lego Pirates was underrated and quite fun as well. You're right about Lego Star Wars III being a grind; didn't get into that one at all.

Oh yeah, I read on CAG that at TRU, there is a promotion this week where if you buy Lego Batman 2, you get any other Lego game for free. Not a bad deal if you wanted to get around to Pirates or HP Years 5-7 as well.

I'm somewhat buzzed while writing this, so please forgive. . .

I'd say the interest is because it's a DC game and the open world aspect of it. Those reasons, and the positive reviews.

Harry Potter 5-7 is not on the list of eligible titles. I tried it yesterday. :(

I ended up picking up Clone Wars instead, as I'd like to have all the LEGO games at some point. It's funny that right after I bought it, I read in here what a grind it is. Oh well.

All of the LEGO games are a grind for the Platinum/1000 but so are most other games. I was looking at the Platinum for Max Payne, which I bought a few weeks ago but haven't played yet, and it has some Hardcore mode where you can't die AND reaching max level in online play. So really the LEGO grinds are just that but fairly easy. They give you a reason to replay levels and in this game you can blaze past the majority of blockades they put in there by using Superman or another flying character. I have the Platinums for the following LEGO games: Harry Potter 1-4, Indiana Jones 2, Pirates, Clone Wars and Batman 2 and I enjoyed each one for various reasons.

If you want to talk about a grind for all of the achievements then try reaching level 10 in online play for GTA IV. That alone likely took me close to 100 hours of online play.

I played thru the first level yesterday with my 4-year old (who is scary good at this game). It was a ton of fun. I never played the first Batman Lego so the controls and use of the batarang are all new to me --- I love that you can take out multiple targets in one swoop!

fuck these games frustrate the shit out of me. beat the game. everything in the game sans the completion of the "lego" level. that gives you a gold brick, so i can't get completion with out it. you have to get 1 million studs. i do everything. i get 998,400. nothing left to do. there's literally nothing. so i get to start over. fucking fantastic.

Did you water the fly traps and then smash them?

Did you destroy the church?

Did you jump out of the train and get the studs there?

As buggy as these games are I'm still more inclined to believe you just missed stuff.

I agree. For longest time, I couldn't for the life of me figure out to with Ace Chemicals or the black LEGO Batman symbol in the back. Once I did, it was pretty smooth sailing from there.

That is curious logic. My disc has frozen multiple times and glitched. I have posted about it here. Yours has probably not done it. Does that mean there is nothing wrong with my disc just because nothing is wrong with yours?

I'm not going to go around in circles with you. If something is wrong with your disc, something is wrong with your disc. Either way, something in the bonus level has been missed, whether you missed it on your own or you weren't able to complete it due to an error with the disc.

Many users, regardless of system, have been able to complete it, so it's not a disc problem that impacts everyone. So, if your disc is preventing you from completing it, I'd see about getting a new disc.

Ironically, I got it a second time through. I now know there was definitely a glitch. How do I know this? When I finally got my last studs outside the train. I was at 995,500. The 2 purples and blues would've put me well over 1,020,000. There is absolutely no fucking way I missed that amount of studs in my previous run through. Just no way.

Deftones, is there not a cheat code for 2x or 4x multiplier for studs?

On the Lego Level or in general? If you are talking in general, yes, here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/655773-lego-batman-2-dc-super-heroes/cheats

On the lego level, no. No cheats are allowed.

Make sure you drive the Batman vehicle all the way down the road as it will cause some studs to appear in the sky. I had to keep my character in the vehicle and turn on a second controller and fly up there with Superman to get them because if I got out of the car then they disappeared.

Turn on subtitles, turn off motion blur. That fixed it for me when my game was freezing up at that spot. Found the fix online and it seems to be working for most people.

I finished the levels in one sitting last night with my son. It was a blast!!! We are only at like 23% after completeing all the story levels. I thought that was pretty bad even though we were just running through it.

So now later today we will start the process of trying to get to 100%.

Once you download the 5 characters (Shazam, Damian Wayne (as Robin), Nightwing, Katana and Zatanna), you can use them in the free play mode on levels you've already beat and in the open world parts of the game. Shazam is especially helpful because he can fly and because he has laser vision.

I can't get the gold brick in the zoo by the penguin building, I'm guessing you have to kill 5 penguins in a row like you did tree's etc. in other places, but only 2 come out and I have to blow them up before 2 more show. That's my last gold brick

I finished this last night and then started the Ace Chemicals level with Superman on free play and it locked up while I was using heat vision.

So I turned it off, went to bed, and tried it again today.

Same. Exact. Thing.

I liked the Lego Star Wars and Harry Potters. Not so much the Indy Jones and Caribbean games. This however is the best of them all. Loving every moment of it. The open world is fantastic and the freedom of being able to roam as Superman is spot on. I am around 60% at the moment and any further progress is being severely stopped by a recent move in with the girlfriend. Would love to see the follow up in Metropolis or maybe two cities in one like the GTA games.

I'm completely pissed. We were playing the ACE level and saved at the first point we could (after about 30 minutes mind you). I went back to play the level at my save point and it just starts from the begining. WTF? So I went back to the menu to see if I could reload and start at the save point -- but no, the game locks up this time.

Is there a method to starting at your save point during the mission play?

After saving mid-level and quitting, if you go back to the level (following the ghost-lego studs), you'll resume from the last save point. If you, however, go back to the Batcave and select the level again, it will restart from the beginning of the level (after a warning that you will restart the level and lose your progress).
